So very sorry to hear this. I can not begin to imagine the strength it takes to march on.

Thanks for taking the time to post here. I will see the pics elsewhere. I understand the why on the editing, and disagree. It is not my forum so I don't make the rules. Congrats on the leopards. It was a great hunt and sounds like a great hunt. Bruce

It wasn't nearly as big as the Black Mamba we saw. We didn't have time to get a picture of him though. He shot up a tree and into a squirrel hole much to the chagrin of the chattering squirrels.

Jim,

Glad Joyce is doing great.

You have written a great story with wonderful photos. A lot of time was put into creating it. Your effort is appreciated.

Besides a great hunt it sounds like you had a great adventure together. Thanks for sharing it with us.

All the best.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
