This was a big goat eating leopard taken in a farmers courtyard by a PAC team.

Apparently the farmer had no rifle.

I can't help but to wonder what he thought might happen if actually got the goat away from it. I'm thinking it would not have walked away head down and defeated.
It may not have been the smartest move but it darn sure was a ballsy one.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
