    Hi Lapaiki39, That is a Suppressor on the end of the Rifle that John was using. At Huntershill they have several of these rifles set up that way they are quite common in Africa. when I setup hunts for friends I offer them the use of a rifle free of charge and ammo at cost just in case they don't want to hassel with taking one through Customs.

    I hunted the Caracal with dogs, The first day the dog worked a jackal that went into a hole before I had a chance to shoot. The second day we had a lite rain this helped the dog get the scent,and the hunt was on,this is great to see the dogs work. about 7 A.M. the dogs treed the cat and gave me the shot. the area I shot was an area that the Copper springbucks ware having there young at this time, so my shooting the cat saved some springbucks as well. The dogs realy wanted that cat. John

    That is it. I was hunting Eland in the same area in June when we jumped him out of the brush.
