    That is a great looking pig. I've not had a big desire to kill one, but that one would have me pulling the trigger. Best of luck with the cat. Bruce

    Borrowed a trail cam from a buddy to supplement mine and did not set the date on it.
    or maybe he is holding out on me and is Leopard hunting at home.

    All the cameras are mine. So, they are not old pictures. :)

    Skip the date and time stamps they are irrelevant.

    The stop at the Market. Some of the Kudu carvings are amazing. The skill astounds me.

    Teaching poached eggs. I do not like fried eggs and obviously poached were not a typical request. So France and Pauline were more than willing to jump in and try something new.
    They did a great job and I got my eggs just like I want them.

    Breakfast on China every morning. Being the early riser as this point I was up with the staff and out the door. My guide and driver were always ready to go.
    Waking at 0430 many days.

    Out and about, Augustinus points out a nice Impala and I decide he is right in his assessment and it is the perfect way to settle me in with the rifle and see what it can do after the trip. The rifle range has already been visited yesterday. Paper just does not settle it for me.

    This is the "introductory species hunt" that is good to do.
    I was hunting a Leopard and did need the confidence the guns and ammunition were doing what they should be doing.

    The trail cam is set out at the bait. Is the angle right, the timing, etc, etc, etc.


    BrokenWire_zps474c8108.jpg

    So after setting out bait on a double wire that could hang me up without an issue.
    HOW BLOODY BIG DOES THE CAT HAVE TO BE TO BREAK THE WIRE AND STEAL THE BAIT???
