    Gert van der Walt asked me to post this picture of one of his clients with a big leopard. This is the 30th leopard that Gert has guided hunters to. I don't have any details on the hunt, but it is a big cat. He is off hunting elephants right now, but said he would fill in the details when he returns.

    I really like the picture as well. Part hunters remorse, part hunters pride.

    That pic is fantastic, the leopard looks like it was set by a taxidermist and the client is showing so much emotion. A great leopard and a pic that is up there with the best!!!!
