    Sounds like an Awesome hunt and the fact that you were able to do this with your father will make the memories that much better. Congratulations!

    Sounds like I need to tell billy to stop smoking... :D
    Good to hear you came right and managed to get your leopard.
    The whole hunt looked good and exciting.

    Hard to get out of head eating a cat, but wasn’t bad. A little sweet tasting and stringy but would eat again.

    Let me tell you, when you bag your cat it is a flood of emotions! I know your frustrations and have felt your pain.

    Kudos all the way around. Great hunt, great report, great cat. Thanks for sharing.
    I hope you get to share many more hunts with your dad. When the time comes, maybe you can bring your kids along as well. Three generations of hunters is more fun than two. If you don't believe me, ask any grandpa and he'll tell you the same thing.

    What a fantastic story! Elephants behind the blind, leopard whupping a honey badger, then making the shot and getting a fine cat! I bet your heart speeds up just remembering it. Congrats. Philip
