    Thank you so much for your kind words.
    He would donate the skins to the local people . However, he has kept three skins for himself which are in his house.

    Yup think you should go ahead and the two of you write a book on his adventures and yours...it would be a shame for these to be lost...as will never be repeated and should be preserved :D Beers:

    I am very grateful for all of your support. I sometimes really do feel like putting all my adventures to paper . All of you gentlemen always give me encouragement and sometimes l feel that writing a book is the best way to preserve the memory of my deceased friends
    . However , l have a genuine fear that the anti hunting people in the world may attempt to use my book to demonize hunters. As you have read my accounts , readers will see how many unethical things l had to do to keep clients alright , including : shooting animals repeatedly , using Folidol to weaken leopards , guiding a client who wounded a Royal Bengal tiger to force it to charge , breaking into a tiger reserve , turning a blind eye towards tribal poachers and that does not even encompass half of the other things we had to do. While , we were doing all this under orders of our clients or Sundar Raj sir and never on our own initiation , l fear that the anti hunting people may use the book to slander hunters and paint a negative picture of hunting.
    For instance , take Captain Newaz . People in my country view him very positively and rather tease him that he has not reached a hundred panthers yet. However , other people who have never had to contend with dangerous animals may accuse him of uncontrolled wanton slaughter by ignoring the fact that he killed 72 panthers over a period of fifty years. Here , l know that l can give the whole unabridged account to my fellow forum members , due to the massive amount of respect you all treat me with and the fact that no body here judges me , since you all know that l lived and hunted in a different time under orders from my employer.

    Hey , look Mr. Rahman :D
    I found a pic of an Eley catalog selling the Grand Prix shells your friend used to use. Apparently , these were originally used for slugs. :)

    Yes ! Found an exact match ! :D
    The GRAND PRIX shells held 6 pellets of LG.
    The ALPHAMAX shells held 8 pellets of LG .
    Mr. Newaz probably used both kinds in his shotgun , Mr. Rahman :)

    This is very nice . LG cartridges typically hold six or eight pellets
