The concession is around 500,000 acres divided by the
Faro River. PH Pierre Guerrini operates from a luxurious
camp facility centrally located on the high side of the river.
The signature feature of this scene was a bridge reminiscent
of Frank Lloyd Wright, spanning the Faro for the sole pur-
pose of accessing both the North and South segments of the
vast hunting zones – a bridge to nowhere. With no cities, no
villages, no fences, no feeding, no transplanted animals, this
was wild Africa in its finest sense.
Day One found us in search of a bull giant eland. We early
on discovered tracks that were not as fresh as desired, but
nevertheless a follow-up ensued resulting in a surprise taking
of a harnessed bushbuck. No eland was taken due mainly to
the lateness of the morning. That evening, however, we hap-
pened on a large herd without them being aware of our pres-
ence but did not find a shooter in the crowd.
Day Two sadly turned into two days of anxiety that only a

Jan. 10, and usually wrap up around 8:30 p.m. on the final day.
This is a job that anyone can do. We have volunteers from age 15
to 75, both male and female. This committee provides one of the
first opportunities to greet our returning exhibitors, and it is a
great way to meet those exhibitors, and welcome them back as
ambassadors of the Club.
Security is another large and very important committee, headed
by John Eads. This committee will need approximately 75 volun-
teers, and will work closely with our off-duty Dallas police offi-
cers during move-in/move-out and during all hours of the
Convention. Security volunteers also work three-hour shifts and
work from noon on Tuesday, Jan. 5, through lockdown at approx-
imately 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 10.
The Floor Managers, led by Rob Salmeron, are the go-to men
and women of the Convention. They also work in three-hour
shifts during Convention hours, and roam the floor talking to
exhibitors, answering questions from exhibitors and/or attendees,
and making sure there are no issues on the floor. The Floor
Managers, along with Security, are the primary eyes and ears of
the Club and make sure that any issues that arise during
Convention hours are handled promptly and properly.
The Ladies’ Luncheon Committee is in the capable hands of
Karen Wolfe and Christine Bond. Karen and Christine need vol-
unteers for approximately six sub-committees, and will invite you
to periodic Ladies’ Luncheon Committee meetings if you provide
your contact information. I can tell you from personal experience
no one has more fun working on with their committees than our
Ladies’ Luncheon crew.
If you have not signed up for a committee already, we urge you
to do. If you volunteered last year, there is a good chance you will
be contacted by the chair of the committee you helped. Please
continue to support the Convention, the Dallas Safari Club, and
its mission, by the generous donation of your time as a DSC 100
Finally, we hope you are reading this article on your way to
southern Africa or some other fun hunting destination, or while
enjoying a cold beverage after honing your shotgun skills in prep-
aration for the upcoming dove season. John and I thank each and
every one of you for your support of the Dallas Safari Club’s
annual Convention, your volunteer efforts, and all that you will
do for First Light in the coming months. We look forward to
working with each of you.

Now that we have a dependable scope with the right features
for the task at hand, what are some of the in’s and out’s of it’s
use? Understand that while a scope will help you see the target
better, it will not improve accuracy. A gun is only as accurate as
the load, shooter and gun itself can be. The biggest, baddest scope
around won’t make that old .30-30 lever gun a tack driver.
Whenever you travel, always check zero on your scope. Even a
dependable scope can get knocked around in baggage, on a horse
or in the truck. If you take a spill and the gun hits the ground,
check it out before it costs you a trophy. A $1 or $2 cartridge is a
cheap insurance policy.
Sight your scope in for the game and terrain you will be hunt-
ing. For a general purpose big game rifle, it’s hard to beat sighting
in for two inches high at 100 yards. Figuring an eight-to-10 inch

Beyond that, get closer, or the bullet drop compensating reticle
has become popular in recent years and if you will do your home-
work, they can be very useful. Your homework is to actually
check at what distances those extra crosshairs are accurate for
your gun/load. If you’re shooting a 7x57 with 175 grain bullets,
that 300 yard crosshair may actually be accurate for 250 yards
and you may need to use the 400 yard line for shooting a 320
yard target. Just the opposite may be true for the Ultra Mags and
such. Do your homework, then you’ll know. That’s dependable.

There are 32 nation states as member groups with delegates
from over 80 nations around the world. The Dallas Safari Club is
a member of the North American Delegation and hosted the
North American Delegations’ meeting at our DSC 2009
“Drumbeats” convention earlier this year. Dallas Safari Club has
a position on the Sustainable Use Committee which is chaired by
John Jackson of Conservation Force and includes Shane
Mahoney. Sustainable Use, much like the North American Model
for Conservation is taking on a universal appeal and definition
that basically views wildlife and conservation as renewable
resources in which the hunting community and related activities
are the driving force for the resource.
It is important for Dallas Safari Club to continue to be involved
with CIC. Not only is it the cooperation in the same conservation
objectives from a world platform, but there is considerable
influence from CIC and its members on policy in IUCN and
CITES. These organizations determine much of the status of
species around the globe. The partnerships we develop with

sustainable use and conservation of wildlife far before the launch
of most environmental movements. The first headquarters was
located in Paris, France.

Dallas Safari Club for inviting him and CIC. At this years’
Assembly I was invited to present an update on the success we
have had in Washington on USAID and its impact on sustainable
use projects in Africa such as Light Plus and Campfires,
furthering our mission and position with CIC and here as well.
In conclusion, just as there are several things Dallas Safari Club
accomplishes, the direct benefits are hard to measure; however
the visibility and profile both internationally and locally are
strengthened by this association. There are some opportunities
financially as well. We are discussing the possibility of obtaining
donations of trips and/or hunts that would not be possible to
obtain without our partnership. I believe with our overall goal of
brand recognition and growth this is a great opportunity and affili-
ation with which we should continue our participation. CT

or those of you headed out this summer to hunt, there are
many things to consider. First of all is choosing a rifle.
There are plenty of opinions on rifles and ammo, and that
subject has already been badly beaten to death by every expert in
the world. Just bring a rifle you can shoot very accurately and get
on target quickly and get used to shooting it with a bi-pod and/or
shooting sticks, leaning against a tree, or over a rock.
My personal rifles of choice are the 300 Winchester Magnum,
7mm Remington Magnum, or .30-’06 for plains game or black causing the shell to be hard to eject after firing, hindering any

Rather than debate on what is and isn’t a premium bullet, there
