    Ok boys I know I am a bit pre mature but...I have 27 days till I depart for Namibia to give ANOTHER try to harvest a leopard. All indications are good as of today with several males hitting baits and one very large guy. Damara dik dik, steenbok, klipspringer, springbok and possibly Mtn zebra on the hit list.

    Happy hunting sir! The good thing of not being successful the first time is the second chance excitement :)

    Phillip is right. That Hartman would make the four best baits you could possibly hang. And almost as cool a trophy as that cat.

    Just not sure if we can fit it in. As you know that is a hunt in it of it's self. And I am not sure if the land owner has first dibs on the meat... I do want a rug badly though.;)

    That's going to be a blast. I'm sure that you will smoke a big tom! The other trophies are super cool. Going to be a great adventure
