    Well said. The tension going in after a wounded cat is almost indescribable, I don’t think I was breathing much. This is a picture at a show where my taxidermist was displaying. The cat in the front is what I’m going to do.

    If anyone is still watching this thread just an update. Went looking for klipsringer today without success. We started out early and slowly climbed to the top to glass. This is a tough place to hunt them as the mountain side is covered in brush and trees. We checked several other areas where my PH has “always “ seen them. Lol. Going to try one more day and then shift gears for the final two days for mountain zebra.

    Been off the grid for a couple months. I just logged on to the forum and your report was the first thing that I knew I had to read. Just finished all 18 pages. Man, Johnny what a story. That is one awesome cat. Congrats on a fine exciting hunt. I remember last time when it did not happen and you were disappointed. Just goes to show, don't give up on your dreams. I know you will remember every moment of this trip for the rest of your life. Congrats again, good hunting.
