    The Marauder Of Talpatti

    @gillettehunter Thank you very much . You are 100 % correct . Without the aid of the full moon , we would never have been able to spot the marauding Royal Bengal tiger as he crawled out of the canal .

    The Marauder Of Talpatti

    Thanks for sharing this story. Once again a night hunt. The full moon is a great help I'm sure. Good shooting. Too bad about the child. At least you were able to stop the tiger before more lost their lives to him. Bruce

    The Marauder Of Talpatti

    Neither Gautomda nor I had contemplated that we would be able to sort out the marauder before 10:00 PM . How were we going to leave this part of Talpatti now ?

    Two Royal Bengal Tigers In One Night

    Unfortunately Professor Mawla, I'm afraid the only way I will ever get a chance to hunt a Tiger or Leopard is if one escapes from a zoo or private collector. I too enjoy your writings as well as Major Khan's contributions to your writings; as well as your sharing in his stories. We hear time...

    People do not comprehend the "sixth sense" of animals. Two anecdotes for you: -An acquaintance owned a zoo and had a tiger in one of the exhibits. He knew this cat very well and was observing odd body language. (the owner was a hunter so he understood predation and aggression in animals) A...

    Hunting The Royal Bengal Tiger : The Essentials

    @Bob Nelson 35Whelen In that case , I would highly recommend you to have a beat conducted should you ever finding yourself contending with a Royal Bengal tiger . Alternatively , you could also opt to hunt it over bait . Neither of these methods necessitate rubbing one’s clothes in fish oil.
