Welcome to AH! You don't have much time before you leave. I'd say first get everything in order regarding travel and Covid and what is needed there. In the meantime, practice your shooting and preferably off of sticks.

Hello and welcome!

You are in good hands with Nolte from what I have read over the years!

Welcome to AH, picked a heck of a way to start hunting in Africa! Don't forget to take a journal so you can give us a detailed hunt report on your return. Good luck and shoot straight.

Pack light. Use a company for rifle permits. +1 on shooting practice.

Welcome to AH, Jesse! Bring a rifle you are comfortable shooting. I shot a huge leopard last year with a 7 mm Rem Mag. Shot placement is critical. Be patient waiting in the blind. I have done a lot of hunting in blinds, learn to control your noise level and keep it quiet. Best of luck on your hunt!

Jesse, welcome to the AH forum! What an exciting first out of the country hunt!
My suggestion is to get a copy of Dr Robertson’s book “The Perfect Shot”. Maybe make yourself a mock blind and targets of leopard. Practice getting onto your rifle and rest very quietly. If possible try shooting (even dry firing) from the blind setup in the dark using a spotlight and shooting within a very few seconds.
If you can, night hunting for hogs and varmints should work to help you get use to shooting in the dark.
Just my thoughts. Best of luck! You’re going to have an exciting time!

Welcome to the posting side.

Pick one spot (rosette), aim at it and squeeze the trigger.
