Don't you not think the 'hunt' is the entire package? what will you learn and experience about Leopard ecology from a pre-baited area? are you to arrive and just shoot the animal? The only real value of trail cams prior to the hunt is that you can ask for evidence of Leopard activity. In areas where the hunt is conducted by means of permit then outfitters can roll several Clients unsuccessfully through 1 permit and maximize profits. The benefit during the hunt is the ability to more accurately judge sex/size of each individual. Each Leopard has a unique collection of spots above the whiskers, either side of the nose (like a fingerprint). Keep this in mind when positioning your trail cam. Many travelling hunters are so impressed with beauty of the dead Leopard that they lose emphasis on the actual hunt. A Leopard is a master predator - elusive, solitary, shy and wide ranging. A challenge to HUNT..........easy to shoot.
