    Up North in my Country, right there where the Tropic of Capricorn crosses the Province of Formosa in the Paraguay border, is where I find the most exciting hunt I can do with my friends by ourselves......I really love to be hunting in the tropical forest more than nothing in my life.

    The diversity of life you can find there never ceases to amaze me, something that happens in all the tropical places in the world.......I am very happy to have my little portion.

    We usually use shotguns with heavy shells to hunt into the forest at really close ranges and rifles for hunting at night in more open places.

    There some allowed species for hunting but there are many others strictly protected species........

    I leave some pictures of the animals you can find there........

    Nice pics Rocket. Believe it or not, we get Coati Mundi here in AZ. First time I saw one, I did not know what to make of it. Spotted him rustling some brush from about 300 yards. Popped up my binos and saw him much better, fun animal to watch.

    The peccary you have remind me very much of the Javelina we have here.

    About the Peccary´s let me tell you is the same javelinas you have there in Arizona or others states.....the same one.......different thing is the white lipped peccary.

    Thank you Phil for your comment......!!!!!

    Rocket,
    Some day I'll have to go hinting with you. The experience looks like it will be wonderful. The ocelot has been one of my favorite cats since I was a little boy. Plus the cold beer and beef don't hurt(y)

    Ooohhh Dear Marcos, my friend,.........good to have you with us again....let me tell you.....you see the way ours forums in our country are turning on......I start to be little tired about that and I am thinking on give up to that......here I can read someone that recently comes from a Marco Polo hunting and going to a Vizcachas thread like yours, and continue reading to one that just come from an Elephant hunt...... and them jump to a South American Tropic hunting thread.......so I mean.........this is great, gorgeuos, and fantastic to share our passion and way to live.......!!!!!!

    I glad you like this pics and is true what you said...........I mean, about the Shameless hahahahaha.....!!!

    See you Budd.......!!!!!!!
