Some background here. I hunted Zim on a dog hunt in 2016 but did not connect. Was not for lack of effort. Blind hunted in Zim this year but did not close the deal. Awesome hunting with the Whittalls and Butch Coaton!!! Plenty of cats and game, it just didn't come together again. Even had one jump out of a tree during the day while looking for a fresh kill.
Shannon.......your question of whether dogs are allowed in the Lichinga area has been answered, but my reasons for recommending the area is more than that. The massive granite mountains in N. Moz stick into an arid scrub land as if dropped from space. They are huge. And the massive cracks that extend into them are deep, dark and largely untraveled. With old growth hardwoods, vines and the faint sounds of water trickling in the darkness, they look to me like a leopard could grow old in there without ever seeing a human. If I were to hunt leopards again, it would be there. And I would hunt striped eland on the side..........................FWB
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.
also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
