    Awwwhh...........kitty done fell outa da tree!:ROFLMAO: How the heck did you get that leopard to come out in the daytime? I always thought you had to hunt them in the middle of the night?

    (and maybe our local fire dept. can employ similar techniques for getting house cats out of trees:sneaky:

    Great video.

    So many cut it off as soon as the shot is done. I love how it stays for a few seconds in the spot where the leopard was . Something about the finality of it all I guess.

    Lots of meat and time!
    We have more daytime cat activity in Tanzania than any other place I've hunted. That video was from a trail camera in the tree- we also have the shot from the blind with a regular camera.
    We guided 6 leopard hunts last year and killed 6 nice cats in daylight hours. The areas are big and remote, this one is approx 2,300 sq km or around 1,500 sq miles I guess. They don't know people and have not been persecuted. No villages, no cattle, no dogs...just us and an occasional poacher!

    thanks for taking a look at this guys - I am going to try to post another video today before I head out for the TZ camps. I hope to have some more good footage and stories in a few months - feel free to share this video with any hunters.
