    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.
