This is also the first time in my 77 years of age that l am writing any article .If people liked this account , then l will give a few more after a few more days. If there is a particular account which anyone might be interested in , or any particular pictures , please do not hesitate.
Thank you for sharing. Mr. Rahman

Many years ago I went into a mans house in America. He had a beautiful opened mouth tiger rug. Obviously he must have a wonderful story to tell about how he shot it in Asia, so I asked him to tell me about the hunt.

His response was that he had been on the board of directors of the local zoo. The tiger was getting old. He told the workers that when the tiger died, he would take care of disposing of the body. :D

I have enjoyed your story much more!(y)

I have used SG cartridge from the gun in the modified choke barrel to kill a man eating leopard in Bangladesh Sundarban forests in 1995 , upon orders from the government.

Sir- thank you for another fascinating story. Would love to hear about this leopard hunt in the relatively recent past. Here in America, it's easy to forget that in many countries, animals present a real predatory threat to humans.

Thank you for the story, Mr. Rahman, I really enjoyed it.

And I have to say that shooting a Royal Bengal Tiger with a 12ga. shotgun is no mean feat and deserves my fullest respect to you as a hunter.

Great story and wonderful history. I look forward to more stories from you. This is a part of hunting history that the vast majority have never been closer than a Jim Corbett book to.
Thank you for sharing.

Thank you so much for your support and appreciation. I was initially very nervous that my grammar would be subpar.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Royal Bengal Tigers , l would hunt without fear. It is the crocodile which l dislike the most. They are devil lizards in every sense of the word.

Dear Malambo
Thank you for your kind comment. This depends upon my former client's grandson and forum member , Hoss Delgado who will include a chapter involving me in his upcoming book " A hobby called hunting "

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!
