    jcarlin, I am pleased to hear that you have a tolerance for some kidding. I understand that you have a tendency to down play your abilities. I, on the other hand, am inclined to overplay my abilities. That might just work on occasion! This site is frequented by hunting and survival gurus, rifle and reloading experts and a few war heroes. I prefer to tell a tall tale or two rather than be humbled by such company. So,you can count on the shots getting farther away with each teilling of the story and the Cape Buffalo getting closer and closer.

    Kody,
    No harm at all. I'm not all that thin skinned. I think I try to hard to be forthcoming that I have more time behind a computer than in the woods unfortunately, and I think I give the appearance that I like reading about it more than doing it because I constantly belittle my level of experience. Just clarifying on my end.
    Regarding time. Yeah.. my kids run from 6 to 17, so we're at an all time high on demands, but it's Ok. Those demands are starting to turn into asking for more hunting/fishing/archery/shooting time. I'll just have to meet those obligations if I must.

    Charlie Elk and I are being referred to as 'geriatrics'. While it may be true that I can not 'walk' you into the ground, I sure could...let me think for a moment here... OK, I sure could 'talk' you into the ground. Knowing this to be true, the Captain advises me to shut up and get on the bus. What next, "Drop and give me twenty, Mister!" I guarantee that I can handle the rigors of this hunting adventure. It is the welfare of the Editors I find worrisome. I question the depictions of the Editors as lean field ready guys. Sitting behind desks hammering on the keyboard is not a credible fitness activity. Unfortunately, it is a recipe for putting on big pounds. Photos can be doctored. Rather than put these fellows at risk I think the Editor candidates should be put through an intensive fitness test.If a golf cart and sufficient beer would be provided I am volunteering Charlie Elk and I to oversee the testing.

    BTW, the captain, carrying out a dehydrated old fart is not that tough. In my younger days when it became necessary they were simply wrapped in their bedroll (sleeping bags weren't invented yet) and gently nudged down the mountain. Note the use of the word "gently". So be nice to kody.

    About 5 years ago there was a group 5 keyboard swashbucklers on this very site who would go off on tangents. (another way saying high jack a thread, many times their own)
    Delving deep into a topic's unchartered territory. Only the brave would dare attempt a sane return to the original, as the furious clicking and clacking of keyboard jousting continued unabated. Then suddenly once upon time so long ago in the middle of some fine jousting OL had a "hiccup" accidently deleting the users, all their posts and points. The referee (webmaster) assured that it was a glitch and restored the keyboard jousters/jesters. But all the wisdom and knowledge of those days remained deleted forever.
    Now I start to wonder if it was a plot all along because the "official writers" were just plain jealous of all the wise knowledge being thrown out for all to marvel... Which might explain why only AM and JT have attempt to inject some sense into this most important thread or more accurately "question".
    That there is your fault kody by bringing up "collateral damage"; got me to remembering those days oh so long ago.

    jacarlin AKA "No Tenderfoot" apologies if you were offended by that tag. When the Captain and I start firing back and forth there can be collateral damage. We seldon pussyfoot around with our comments but there is always the likelihood of a bigfoot in the mouth. For that I make no apologies as it is half the fun of participating. While the Editors have been showered with compliments in this recent thread, I know there are many individuals no less worthy of high praise who routinely contribute to the forum.
    PS Contrary to Charlie Elk's comforting words of advice, just when you think it is getting easier your son or daughter asks for the car keys, then tuition fees, then comes the wedding reception and finally help on the down payment on that first home. In today's economy parenting has become a lifetime endeavour. I have miss some hunting opportunities working long and hard to be a supportive father and a Grandfather but it has in no way been a sacrifice. It has been my great pleasure to have done so.
    Nevertheless, my iPhone has more pictures of my hunting dogs and my Cape Buffalo then there are of my kids. Go figure!

    Charlie Elk, challenge accepted! Knowing full well that you and Kody are a couple of geriatrics, I will most likely have to carry out any game shot. (This is much easier than carrying out an old fart having a heart attack.)
    Kody, when the phone call comes just be quiet and get on the bus with the rest of the platoon.
    JCarlin, I am right there with you with little time to hunt. Just make time count (as Charlie said).
    Gayne, you are still my guy. Let me know when you want to go on a Nilgai hunt. By the way, can I borrow your .375 H&H for the trip??? You know, since you are deeply honored that I picked you and all!

    Mr McKean,
    Don't ruin the illusion, as Editor you should demand special treatment, even if it does not work.
    Seriously, I began reading Outdoor Life more than seventy years ago. If it had not been for Jack OConnor and the magazine, I would not have had the goal to go to college and put together enough ill gotten gains to have hunted all over the world. Asante sana

    jcarlin, You brought back memories of being where you are with family and precious little time to hunt in the "backyard" let alone travel out of state. Keep the goal and work towards it, the kids will grow up, you'll have more time and yes money too.
    It's not so much about becoming the "Great White Hunter" as it is loving the hunt and then hunting whenever and wherever you get the chance. Keeping my goal of hunting in sight I have reached the point with employment were I can work hard in the off seasons then take off considerable time during seasons. You seem like a hunter who can do it too. My advice- keep the goal in sight, steadily put one foot in front of other moving towards achievement or whatever your satisfaction is.
    I post about my hunting successes here and on other blogs including my own which may give the impression I am a better hunter than most. This in my humble opinion is not the case rather it is because I get to spend more time afield. Trust me on this; all the same unlucky stuff that happens to others happens to me. The difference in some cases? I have time to hunt more so that maybe next time the opportunity won't be whiffed. I suspect this is true for the outdoor pros too.

    My dream is to bear hunt in Alaska so I pick all the Outdoor Life writers who live in the last frontier state.

    A Great White Hunter I am not, but even in the good spirit it was offered, I'll balk at the tenderfoot label.(Might not mean I don't deserve it.) I hunt deer and small game, fish, camp, backpack, kayak, heat predominantly with wood I split with a maul, and keep small livestock. A cowboy hat would be a silly pretention, admittedly.
    It's time and money to devote more time to hunting while balancing work and family that I lack. That being said, if I have 4 hours to myself, you'll find me in the woods or on the water, not on a golf course. I still look with some small wisp of envy at folks from the plains states and big mountains who have hunting opportunities and experience that I just don't, but not so much to leave my roots entirely behind.
