    Thank you everyone for your kind words. The leopard has been on my bucket list as long as I’ve been hunting. And getting a great cat such as this brought tears to my eyes.

    You were right about the size of the head - awesome cat! Well done. You should be very proud.

    Now you can sleep in for one day and then get back to "regular" hunting!
