Who is into hunting, where do you hunt, what rifles you have or like hunting with, which type of hunting method do you prefer, I for one, strictly stick to a good old walk and stalk...

Everywhere, in SA or NAM, but last 3 were at Beaufort wes, kimberly and Petrusville.

I hunt anything I can afford and eat, so no predators, but if I name all I have hunted and eten people will loose their minds.

I consider myself to be part of the hunting community - .243 and .308 in my safe.  I also do handloads for both.

Fanciest animal shot so far was a black wildebeest in the Free State (with a borrowed .300 Win Mag).

I agree with only shooting edibles, but will shoot at vermin like jackals, etc.

Plenty but in short:

.22LR Brno mod 2-everybody needs a 22
.222 Sako-My wifes grandmothers rifle, she won 3 bisley championships with it in Namibia, my daughter uses it now.
.222 Musgrave Mod 90 Mini-My son's.
7 x 57 Brno-Use to be mine my 12yr old son took it over when he was 7. I shot everything with it including eland bulls. My son shot his, 4 impala, 4 blesbuck and 1st Black wildebeest, with it at 7yrs old-he recons it's his now.
338 Lapua Magnum Custom on Weatherby MKIV action-use to be a 460 Weatherby that a spanish client gave to me. The action and stock lay in my safe for years until we built this "fun gun" on the action and stock. Most accurate gun I ever owned. Shoots 330gr bullets at 2650 fps. My son shot his first Koedoe bull with it last year.
375 H&H Brno ZKK602 action pop up peep sight receiver-beautiful gun I bought from English bloke.
375 H&H Brno ZKK602 action pop up peep sight receiver-going to re-barrel to 404 Jeff(custom)-my first back-up rifle, going to re barrel to 404.
500 Jeff Brno ZKK602 action custom-my most favorite rifle. My dangerous game back-up rifle. Have shot everything with this rifle. All of the big 5. Going away and coming! Many buffalo. Some I will never forget. 2 coming at 7 yards, one at 10 yards, another at 15 yards. Elephant at 15 and 20. All required but one well placed shot and the lights and water were switched off! Most devastatingly effective rifle I have ever used.
7 x 65R/12ga combination Belgium-my son's bushpig and warty gun and for plains game.
9.3 x 74R/12ga combination-my bushpig and warty and plains game gun.
12ga Brno sidelock 24 inch barrels fitted with front sight and ghost ring rear sight-my leopard back-up gun.
12ga 1905 Greener S/S 30 inch barrels-just a nice gun to take bird shooting, pigeons, guinea fowl, etc.
12ga Browning whale back semi auto-self defence
2 x hand guns-self explanatory.

Wow IWyk amazing collection and stories.
My dad is a serious collector, will have to check what he has now as it's always changing.
Of note in his collection, a 220 Swift, amazing blow them up where they stand varminter, a Springfield 30-06 converted for hunting but retaining the full wooden stock, heavy as but incredibly accurate, I shot a 10mm grouping with 5 rounds at 250m with this rifle. The end of many a kudu and gemsbok.
Many interesting handguns, shotguns and small calibers too.

You and he would get along like a house on fire I reckon.
