Now that is what i call fun Brickburn, good luck with the cat!
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
High tailing it out of here...
Going to be a big boy in a few years....
Another Spotted visitor
How come the last two leo shots state the year as 2012?? You go back in time did you?
Those are some great pics Wayne keep'm coming. Love that last leopard shot.
looks like your having a great time bricko,
thanks for the teasers.
gotta love them leopard pictures
now dont tell me the computer fundi cant program a trail cam? :biggrin2:
Great warthog BB and equally impressive pictures!
Hey Phil I think I've got this figured out, about two weeks before Dallas I'll complain about an outfitter then Wayne will just have to catch up to me in Dallas, So you can put him down for 1 maybe 2. hey hey :laughing:
Good idea, I was just hoping by January he'd want out of the Canadian cold.
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.
In my sleep addled state at the start with jet lag I may have set a timer on a bomb for all I know.
Enough of that.....what's the hunting report? In particular what's the story on the leopard?
My lodgings bath.. Hard to suffer with marble..
My dog fix:
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.
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???
Big enough for me to shoot!!!
Congrats on that huge warthog!
Love the pics. Maybe the leopard was flossing with the wire.......my floss always breaks too.
Appropriate while in Ozondjahe for this reponse. "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!"
BTW, I love those carvings, I try to fill my suitcase full every time I'm in Africa.
Sounds (and looks like a great time) I can smell the air. Good luck Wayne, and nice work on that Impala. More pictures please.....
Eric is right those are some nice carvings, and only 9000 members want one hope you took some big suite cases along. :laughing:
