As I hear it the guy that got jumped was a PH in training...and decided on a new career after this incident.
From what I can tell the guy that got jumped was not carrying a guy. To me, trailing a wounded Leopord....Shutgun / 00 Buckshot would be the way to go and everybody would have one, except maybe the hunter who would have his rifle.
You see how fast that was and the guy with the double rifle missed twice. That is dang scary stuff.
