In 1958 Hanlin and his friends went to Alaska for an unguided hunt, where they shot a moose, and then the adventure began! That night no less than four brown bear came into camp looking for meat. In the fracas two bears were shot! From then on, Hanlin was hooked on the thrill of big-game hunting. There is very little in Hanlin's lifetime he did not hunt, and he was fortunate enough to take dozens of trips to Asia and Africa as well as many trips to Canada and the Western United States. He was in Sudan as one of the last hunters there before the country closed to hunting, and he was on his first safari to Mozambique in 1971 when FRELIMO fighters stole the carcasses of the animals in order to feed their troops. While hunting in the Philippines, he had to use a M-1 Garand rifle with solid bullets to shoot buffalo. When he arrived in Moscow with "forbidden" magazines, USSR Customs officials found them and promptly sat down to read them in front of all the arriving passengers! It's experiences like these that make big-game hunting the grand sport that it is. After you have shot a Grand Slam, a Super Slam, the Big Five, all the spiral-horn antelope of Africa, and virtually everything in North America, you have a lot of stories to tell.
