I have 5 pr of the Lowa Z8 & Z6, best boot ever
There is not much I can say that would add to the story, so I will just say thank you. You have taken what was obviously an incredible experience, and shared it for us all to enjoy. Some incredible memories, and I am sure they will not fade soon. Excellent animals by the way, all very nice trophies! Like those who mentioned this before, I would certainly have my hand up if you chose to write a collection of your experiences. Well done sir!
Enjoyed the read, congrats. Well done. So what's up next....
Really not sure . . . When you've accomplished something that's taken a while to get done - 10 years in this case - there's a bit of a let down when it's finally over. So taking some time to figure it out. Might look at countries I haven't hunted before (Uganda looks interesting), or finish the tiny 10 (I have 8), or maybe try for another leopard or elephant while we still can . . .
Rest assured I will let everyone know!
Love your stories, not sure the random guy on the internet gets a vote... but I vote leopard
I got a nice leopard about 6 years ago in Zimbabwe . . . at last light. Decent shot, but lousy ammo (had to use local at that time - the UN embargo). Nice kitty, charged us from about 10 feet away, a picture which will live with me for a while yet. Unfortunately, the skin was so badly prepared that it arrived home mouldy and almost unusable. I managed to get a nice tail . . . and my taxidermist made me a shoulder mount, using bits and pieces from the usable parts of the skin. I can't tell, but he told me that the ears were actually from a mountain lion!
Given that experience, it might just be time to try again.
Having said that, I am quite taken by what @rookhawk has just done . . . just decide to go next week and see what's available! Unfortunately in Canada if you do that you won't be able to take your own firearms . . . takes longer than that too get the permits.
