    Mort, if you want the best possible mounts , yes follow the salting and be specific on the the degreasing instructions, MAKE SURE THEY DO IT and If you CAN use SOLIDS on these little guys. Soft nose bullets on these paper thin skinned night critter are like Grenades to them. They do get blown up a lot. Don't shoulder shoot them shoot them right behind shoulder and USE SOLIDS if you can......Good Luck my friend !

    I love the built-in “sage” flavoring of Pronghorn. It is one of my favorites. Of course Elk is to top of the meat spectrum for US game. I fix a lot of deer venison for folks in Nashville as I try to take 4-5 deer per year. It is great to share game meat. Especially when my sons’ friends come over just to eat venison, gals included!

    I had Jimmy Derringer tell me to use Meli mil to rub into cat hides during the salting process to “soak “ up the fat and grease

    Did you eat the mili mil after you used. Just a total non-serious question LOL

    Thanks. If I had to list all the animals that I failed miserably on, the AH server would crash.

    Good luck on the hunt. Night time is addictive, especially the varmints like springhare, jackal and smaller cats.

    Springhare were like camp rabbits in Zim, not sure why I did not shoot one? but I'm told only in Limpopo SA. Not on list for next hunt, may have to add as "extra" or put on return list. I have not eaten hyena to date, but not knocking it till I have tried. I am warned that the night predators have the lowest success rates and they are the hardest to put in the salt. That's Africa Safari success rates, not compared to say Northern BC wolf hunt success rate?? Looking forward to a "fix" in Oct/Nov when Mort gives us a couple pics and a story.

    Gotta agree with Spike T here. Hyena are the nastiest beast alive, or dead. Actually felt sorry for the skinner. Gave him a cigar just to kill the smell.

    Leopard tasted great, even after he had a few days and full belly of maggot infested zebra 1/4. But yes the hyena did carry a stigma with the guys. Probably reason body "vanished" in the night. Skinned zebra head also vanished in another camp one night, skinner was in a panic until I told him I did not want/need zebra skull. A close investigation showed a ton of hyenas tracks all around, in and thru camp.

    Those are awesome pics, that genet looks to be a "lets wait for that one specimen". Do you shoot 2 in same night reg, or does first kill at site deaden bait for any length of time? Did see a TV guy "slock" a few on same bait in a night. Looks like all could be in salt before midnight?? Don't think that easy in real life. We also seen genet in trees while driving with light, you do that?Mort is in for a treat. Is it 2020 yet?
