    Good luck with the hunt! Took me two tries to get a leopard - all the sweeter for that!

    And if you can, the Hartmaan makes a great rug - much better than plains zebra in my view - the hair is more "velvet-like', thicker and more contrast between white and black. A wonderful trophy and one usually well-earned.

    I'm getting envious just writing this . . . can't wait for the report!

    Thank you sir, yes hopefully we will have the time to harvest one. A rug is what I would do if I’m lucky.

    Good luck Johnny! May you stay safe and shoot well ! Just bump off old Spots on the first sit then you should have plenty of time to collect your rug.
