Bummer you did not get a leopard. I had a great hunt with Westfalen last June, and although we actually saw a leopard! I was not hunting them. I hunted mainly with Gideon, a very focused hunter, if a bit laconic. If he could not put you on a leopard at that time, I doubt anyone could.
The ongoing drought is tragic. Hope it ends soon.

Philip, I hunted with Westfalen in July/August. Only plains game but had an incredible hunt. I decided to do the Taxidermy in Namibia because 1) I personally saw the work they do 2) Cost - Comparing to three local taxidermist the cost was considerably lower. Over 25% including increased shipping cost. But along your lines, I negotiated that the final bill with be an additional 20% off if they are not ready to ship in 6 months. I totally agree everything is negotiable. BTW 6 months is 3/16/17 so I will keep everyone updated.
I'm going to be interested to see how your taxidermy goes. Mine is still "in progress" as well. (June/2016). John was adamant I contact him if I needed anything, but I am not quite there yet.

G'day Bob,
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.
Hunt: Alaska, Canada, Mexico and USA: particularly the Western states.
Hi,
Going through and old thread I see you mentioned having a William Douglas double in 470NE for sale. Just touching base to see if you sold the rifle, or if it was still for sale?
Regards,
