Gentlemen, and any ladies. Let me thank you all for following and contributing to my thread. Most of you know of my personal situation with my wife and a lot of you followed my first leopard hunt thread back in 2015, And know
just how much this cat hunt meant to me. It’s been a fantastic hunt to say the least. Going in after a wounded leopard was absolutely terrifying. But one I will ever ever forget. I was also very fortunate to take some other outstanding trophies. AH members are the best. To support someone they only know from a screen and show concern for that Hunter is the bond non hunters could never understand. I thank you all. I’ve attached a picture of myself and my PH SP having a drink and celebrating a fantastic hunt.

Yes Oscar, I’m really not sure if it all has quite sunk in.

Ya I think my wife is still unconscious as I asked her to wire transfer my trophy fees!

That can be more dangerous than tracking a wounded leopard, at night, in the bush! Living dangerously.

Well done Johnny, I enjoyed following along on your journey. I am not sure how you plan on adjusting to the day to day back home.

Had a double header on free range springbok today.. We spotted the short heavy one early this morning my PH said he’s very heavy and a nice trophy. 150 yards out and hit him, ran about 60 yards and dropped.. several hours later we were sitting under a tree just enjoying some coffee and a snack when I saw movement about 200 yards away. My PH put the glasses on him and said shoot him he’s a good trophy, well having just shot one I was reluctant. He said I’ll give you a good price shoot! I did....lol

Congrats on taking that second springbok Johnny. Especially as you spotted it yourself! I hope that makes it all the sweeter;)

Besides, springbok are kind of like potato chips, you can't have only one:)

Ok, fully caught up. Congratulations again! But man you had the day fee covered as well as travel.... Had you gone out for klipspringer one more day and succeeded, you would likely never get a cheaper one..... But alas, everyone has to know their own limits;)

Very happy for you, just getting that leopard by itself makes it a truly great Safari. All the rest is really bonus.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
