    Dik Dik with a bow thats sounds interesting I suppose in the right areas in Namibia it can be easier than others.
    Thats one of the species I have never hunted or been on a hunt with and never seen except quickly driving past Etosha.
    Good luck with that one and enjoy.

    Congrats mate. A beautiful trophy. Glad he didn't keep you waiting all night ;)

    Could have almost used a 9.3 at that range.

    Thanks Charlie! I would say we hear Leopard probably 7 times out of 10 from the blind. This is not the first time we've had one visit the bait while waiting for a Spotted Hyena either. If they leave abruptly, it is usually a good sign that Spotted Hyenas are close, and almost every time, a Spotted Hyena appears within 10 minutes.

    Yes, sir! Still trying to decide on the pose though.

    Cheers Tim! With the amount of them there, it was never going to be long.

    Yeah, with about a foot hold over, sure;)
