    The hunting Gods blessed you with a magnificent leopard. Congratulations Johnny, on a huge and beautiful cat.

    What a nail biter of a story! I don't know if you smoke cigars or not, but when we meet in GA, we'll have to smoke a good cigar while you tell me the story in person. Again congratulations, and hope you get the rest of the animals you have on your list.

    I've said congrats once and I can't help myself but to say it again. Congrats! I think everyone reading and posting in this thread knows this hunt and cat mean a lot to you.

    She’s one of a kind, she wanted to know if I was happy! I told her I was thrilled.

    I, like so many others, just have to give you a another attaboy! I shared with work folks how utterly amazed I was to be living through you with your real time updates. I don’t know if you realize how folks were literally on the edge of our seats, tensed as if we were in the field with you. That was quite a gift you gave us and in addition to your tremendous success, I want to thank you for sharing journey. I don’t know if I could ever be composed enough under the best conditions to take the time to post in real time. You were blessed, but so were all of us!

    Ugh! I missed this by hours! I’d been following so close and then we headed to the boondocks out of Moab with no service. Stopped at Walmart today, turned off the airplane mode and BAM! Johnnyblues got the big one!!! Absolutely AWESOME! My envy light is flashing in my brain!
    Thanks so much for taking us along on such a GRAND ADVENTURE!!!
    Phil

    Thank you Phil, I always enjoy doing the daily reports and sharing it with my hunting family. Today we drive 200km for Springbok. Still eluding us is klipsringer. Very difficult on the farm, the mountains are covered with a lot of vegetation.
