Dangit Tony!

You are one heckuva "bad" influence...

Not only did you turn me on to the great deal on Jason's Safari @ Kanana and then feed me tons of information that just contributed to the fever that I now am infected with...

Now you turn out a great tale of your latest adventure that makes me want to figure out a way to hunt those majestic cats that I have always wanted to chase after!

And all this after just TODAY having my girl Angie share with me how much she would love to have a Leopard...

Well, I have to admit that you did warn me that I was ruined now that I have finally booked my first African Safari.

Thanks for the great story and all of the information that you have shared with me pal.

I'll leave the fires burnin' at Kanana for ya.

Jeff

I did warn you jeff so don't blame me for your addiction. If your woman is really wanting a leopard give peter a call and purchase that zim cancelation leopard hunt. Its about as cheap as they come. Next to that your next best option is jeromes place as his place is covered with cats and they are the cheapest advertised rates you can find outside of a cancelation hunt.

And for the record I did get my monster eland. He had everything I wanted. His horns were 30" long and he had almost no ridge. The ridge was worn completely off and it looked like polished ivory. that thing was huge. I will post pics of him later but Peter is the one who put me onto that eland. We had no eland at doddieburn so he took me to hunt the laddie ranch with a ph by the name of Norman who stays drunk. Anyways he knew of a place where he always saw eland crossing in the evenings and put me on to a monster free range wilderness livingstone eland. the bull I shot was an absolute brute! We ran out of food at our lodge so the meat was a welcom site. It was welcome until we actually tried to cut the steaks with our forks and knives. Then we discovered the entire bull was made of boot leather. Trying to eat him only added to my trophy. worn down horns, giant body, huge duelap, and steaks that you can't cut with a chainsaw. He's was one old monster bull!

Congrats to you and the wife Tony. That excitement and adventure will be hard to top, without going right into the cave that is! :eek:

Pics still arent working, hopefully Jerome can fix. You know you have an old animal when the worn down teeth are yours from trying to eat it! ;)

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
