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.
   First Light is coming – please join us!

        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
     kill zone on most animals, this sighting allows you to hold dead-
     on out to about 250 yards and on the top of the back out to 300
        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.
        A true Mil-Dot reticle can be very accurate, but they are
     damned hard to understand and literally require you to take a cal-
     culator with you. Their strongest feature is their range finding
     ability. A milliradian, or mil is 3.41 minutes of angle or 3.6 inches

on rational management of game and an effective conservation of

was essential for all conservation efforts. This recognition

     the visibility and profile both internationally and locally are

     obtain without our partnership. I believe with our overall goal of

       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.
