Jerome very informative post i have learned a lot here great info by everyone.
Leopard was shot low for sure. When the hunter is in the blind i think he says he shot just behind the shoulder. If that is the case the way the animal is standing it is stretching with its head and its shoulders are pushed back placing a bullet behind the shoulder and you have a wounded animal. I am no dangerous game hunter but i would have taken this leopard square in the shoulder. Wouldn't this be the best shoot hopefully take out heart and lungs and take his front legs out from under him.:gunjamming:
