    My dear friend Panther Shooter
    Our friend Ponton could not have had a better 80th birthday. To be surrounded by friends is a blessing but to be able to go on a shikar after h hunting leopard as well is to be doubly blessed. I pray that if I get to that age to still be able to hunt..
    Your humble reader and friend

    Another great story of skill and courage but I do have one question why did you use your 12 gauge on the Nilgai instead of your .375?

    Our friend Ponton sounds like he was a man not to be taken lightly by scoundrels whilst being a very gentle an dignified man. It is a crying shame that India be allowed to continue in the decimation of it wild life by financial poachers.
    Poaching to feed your family and friends because of draconian laws that stopped a thriving method of conservation is completely understandable. These people are not going to be indiscriminate killer but only take what they need and conserve the game.

    Thank you very much for enjoying it and deeming me to be a courageous man ( while the reality is that half the time , I was completely terrified out of my mind ) . I actually get asked this question , quite a lot . In order to understand the answer to this question . I would implore you to read my previous entry :
    https://www.africahunting.com/threads/my-first-man-eater-with-the-375-holland-holland-magnum.55889/ It shall detail the circumstances under which I had acquired that .375 Holland & Holland Magnum . I only used my .375 Holland & Holland Magnum for hunting man eating Hunting Leopards and man eating Spotted Leopards . In retrospect , I really wish that I had purchased that .375 Holland & Holland Magnum from the original owner before I left India to immigrate to Bangladesh . It would have really been a fine weapon to use , now . I mean , I do enjoy owning and using my 7 millimeter Remington Magnum very much . However , that .375 Holland & Holland Magnum was the most marvelous Double Rifle which I have ever crossed paths with , in my life .

    As I said previously you should never have purchased it. After what that low life despicable V did to you you should have just taken it. Oh well the folly of youth.

    Thank you for telling us about your hunts! It is this exact type of writing and history that I love to read about.
