    Had my 300 in my hand at the time. Shot him low enough to minimize damage

    Ok so another long day. Had one bait hit last night, photos appear to be a small male. The moon is going dark now and we found an increase in spoor. Game seems to be on the move. Since the leopards have not hit baits in a week we feel it will increase again. Once we have a good cat on camera we willsit

    Ok gentlemen, had two baits hit last night. On one of our baits we have a small male feeding and then a female came in with a good mature male. So 3 on one bait! We’re in motion now to get things ready to sit on that bait. As I said they are once again active and feeding. As Marius said to me “ ice in the veins”! Wish me luck!

    Yea I thought about that but if you want to engage in a battle of wits with my better half you are on your own buddy. She has a quick wit and is tougher than woodpecker lips.

    Ok so spots decided not to show on our first sit. Thought for sure I’d have s crack at him. Will try another sit today. Mentally very challenging.
