The “Mysterious Queen”, a man-eating tigress, has claimed her 10th victim in 6-weeks in Northern India. If you have ever read Jim Corbett, that story-line is all too familiar. Example: The Champawat Tiger.

Fascinated and impressed with what I have just read, regarding Kilimanjaro's “Stealth Lamination” wood stocks. From what I understand, the wood that is to be used for making a stock, is ripped in thirds, with the center piece being the thinnest of the bunch, then the center piece is reversed 180 degrees and the whole lot is laminated back together into a solid blank, to be carved and whittled into a stunning finished stock. The result is a fine looking, exhibition-worthy Walnut stock that is far more resistant to be adversely affected by temperature and humidity changes. Simple, elegant and brilliant.
In 1969, the New Mexico State Department of Game and Fish decided to introduce gemsbok to the Tularosa Basin in the United States. The introduction was a compromise between those who wanted to preserve nature and those who wanted to use it for profit and promotion. Ninety-three were released from 1969 to 1977, with the current population estimated to be around 3,000 specimens. They thrived because their natural predators, including the lion, are not present.
