Thanks for sharing, nice hunting story, looks like you are going to do great with your 338 EDGE. Congratulations on the hunt, on the rifle, and on the pictures!!! Real nice scenery.
Hopefully someday will be able to go to New Zealand on a hunting trip, for me it is considered one of the hunting paradises of the world.

    You're in the wrong line of work. You should write for a hunting magazine! Anyway congrats on your hunt.I love northern Idaho, but of all the places on earth, that would be my first choice to hunt.....Rich

    I had the ammo pouch altered, it originally was a pouch that Kathmandu (outdoor clothing chain) sell for holding a travel diary.

    I had the bullet loops and the Kestrel holding loop sewn in by a shoe repair man and the whole thing cost me under $15

    Works a treat and allows me to put drop charts, earplugs, lens wipes, tape for muzzle etc in the mesh pouch inside.

    Rgds, Steve
