    Sounds like you had a great time! Was really pulling for you but sounds like the leopards are there. Love the sniper set up, what a dream scenario to be able to get prone on one of those bad boys.

    That is some wicked looking country! Always good to hear someone enjoyed their trip even not getting their target animal.
    That is a testament to the outfitter. Congratulations on an awesome impala and huge baboon!

    Took me three trips to finally connect with Mr Spots. What a sweet feeling it was when it happened. Best thing is I learned so much on each trip. Good luck!

    Sorry Fred.
    I know the feeling to well Fred. 2 leopard hunts myself and come home empty.
    This is the hunt I cancelled out on and you then bought it. I was archery hunting elk in the Black Hill of SD the month of Sept. and had plenty of time to think about the timing of the leopard hunt. Being a taxidermist I could not be gone this time of year business wise. I did connect with a 5x5 bull.
    I will do another leopard in the near future. Hope third time in the charm.

    You hunted hard and gave it full effort. Nice baboon and impala! Leopard hunting can be hit or miss. I still want to try to go after one...….
