CVA’s Versatile Scout – a One-Shot Centerfire Rifle You May Not Know 7

We spent the day driving and hiking, scouring the ranch for more volunteers to be Campfire Stories stars. Gert and Ettienne would stop often and inspect tracks, analyzing them for species, sex, and how recently they may have been made.… Read more

The first day at Fig Tree Safaris found us up early, preparing to spend the day afield. Before daylight, I began organizing cameras, rifles, and gear. We had arrived in the dark, so our view of the camp was pretty limited, but as the sun came up, it was clear to see we were surrounded by miles and miles of bushvelt (a.k.a brush).… Read more
