    That was a fantastic report, I really enjoyed it! I can definitely see the appeal in that type of hunt after night hunting for a porcupine last year. However the sleeping in the blind factor with the risk of snoring never occurred to me.....and I can really sound like a bear everyone likes to tell me!
    I am always amazed at the talent so many members have in the writing of these hunt reports. You’re on that list!

    Great hunt, Mort. Some fine critters! Takes a lot of fortitude to spend that much time in a blind, night after night. Looks like it paid off big.

    Thanks for reading. This hunt is like 5 mini-leopard hunts at a fraction of the cost. A supremely rewarding hunt for animals that not a lot of hunters see, much less hunt. No, there is no ka-bu-bi and being carried around on a chair and celebrated when you return to camp with your trophy, but the sense of accomplishment and the value and memory of the experience is quite the same.
