    Thought you guys like to watch and see how much fun I had with Louis & Spiral Horn Safari. This is just a short clip of the 3 hour stalk but man was it a blast. Watched it all day cannot wait to go back next year.

    WOW! After looking into the eyes of several Kalahari lions 3 months ago, at close range, what a rush to be able to hunt one it must be.

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments, AH is a great place to share your memories and these will be with me a life time, heck cannot wait to head back next year. Louis is hard at finding the right hunt for me. So thanks again all your guys help educating me in a short time on who to use and what to expect was a big part of my hunt as well.

    Congrats. Awesome video, in the price of a lion hunt the cost of properly videoing it is small potatoes compared to having that moment on film.
