    In referring to the recent cat on bait and the pics, is this the Chui you think is a nice male?

    This cat is obviously young, no body mass, very thin neck and head looks too small.

    My wife’s first response when I showed her the pic “its skinny”...

    Wait for the big boy, Namibia has some monster cats and good luck!

    . Frothing at the mouth?.....one second I have to wipe! Ok. Damn right I’m excited. But seriously I’ve been waiting for 4 years for my guy to get a tag. Spoke with him he’s excited too, as he said it’s been going good for two months baits being hit regularly by both good males ,young males, females. Their out there for sure.
    First order of business will be to shoot some fresh bait. I’ll do a running daily report as I did on my first leopard hunt.
