They are Hartmann's mountain zebra; I took the photo in Kaokoland, Namibia in 2017. Unlike most puzzles, there's no absolutely-known-to-be-correct answer! I would have said 5, but I think there might be extra legs to the right of the group. So maybe 6?
??Where??? Right is only bushes....

I have since studied the crap out of the photo and realized I counted a muzzle as an ear! I change my count to five! Hard to see all on a little phone screen.

Reminds me of the time we got into a herd of about 250 Gemsbuck and I "seriously" told my client...."Quickly shoot nr. 111 from the right".....the look I got was priceless....

Well, the region I'm looking at that (I think!) may have more legs than can be otherwise accounted for with 5 zebras is here.

But, I might be wrong! I only ever counted 5 zebras before.

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
