There were no votes for pole cats in addition to the other cats. And unlike another election, this one was entirely transparent (especially since I got outvoted).

If people can present a note signed by their doctor (a real one, not the kind we’re seeing these days) attesting to a disability which limits their ability to shoot, for example, cats which look like house pets, the I assume under the ADA we will have to accommodate that. Otherwise, the categories are closed!
Haha fair enough

Just for future reference, my doctor may or may not write notes in crayon. Imagine the look on the airline staff face if they make the covid vaccine mandatory and I show up with such a note...

I have been fortunate enough to kill a jackal with my bow. Shot at and missed a caracal. Never seen a cat jump so high in all of my life.

I would not shoot a mongoose as it can take down a mamba.
+1. I wouldn’t shoot a mongoose there or a bull snake here. They both help control poisonous snakes.

So the current proposal is African wildcat; caracal; serval; civet; genet; honey badger, and aardwolf.
I can go along with this list although I'd personally prefer to take out the Honey Badger. It is a worthy opponent but from the one growling and snarling at out feet, and his all around "don't care" attitude, I don't think of him as secretive. More like a night owl drunken brawler. I'd classify him more with hyena and leopard.

Personally I'd include the Bat Eared Fox. Or any African fox, or a mongoose. During my last hunt over there, I saw 5 white tailed mongoose in the EC and 3 in Limpopo. They were on the list and I had a permit in Limpopo but never got a shot.

I still need an African Wild Cat, a Civit, and whether part of the Secret Seven or not, a white tailed mongoose. All of which I've seen but not gotten on previous hunts with @LIMPOPO BIG GAME SAFARIS

I think this is what you meant by "night owl drunken brawler"

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.
