    Thanks Bluey

    We started last Saturday 5 October. At first things were slow. On Monday morning at 4:21am the Leopard made an approach to one of the baits, but we think that the infrared led on the trailcam put him off, so he never took the bait.

    On our daily bait run on Wednesday morning 9 October we found a good hit on one of our baits about 5km from camp. This was the perfect place for the cat to hit the bait. The blind was set up early and we left the area.

    When the PH and Client returned to the blind at 4pm the cat was already on the bait but slipped them.

    They got into the blind for the long wait.
    The Leopard returned a 19:53pm
    It took us 5 days to get this outstanding Leopard.
    The Soutpansberg Mountain is well known for some of the best Leopard habitat in Southern Africa.

    Very cool. Congratulations to all. What an awesome cat.
    I found it interesting that the bait was accessible from the ground. How do you keep other scavengers from stealing the bait?
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    Hi Stretch
    Thanks for your input.

    Due to the fact that we do not have Lions and Spotted Hyena that pose a threat to the Leopards they are not too keen on taking baits that are high up in the trees.

    As long as the Leopard can reach the bait from the ground he is happy to take it. We do have Brown Hyena and Honey Badgers but that is one of the things we just deal with. As long as the bait is properly secured it is fine.
