I just returned home from my leopard hunt in Zimbabwe with Leloma African Hunting Safaris, which I booked thru Discount Africa Hunts. We hunted in the Save Valley Conservancy. This was my second trip for leopard, my first trip to Mozambique in 2019 was unsuccessful. Once I arrived we set 4 baits with Zebra and ended up with hits on three of them. I shot my cat on day 8 but it was actually 5 hunting days. I saw a lot of game in the area including Buffalo, elephant, & lion. This was a huge deal for me and an end of a long quest getting my leopard as it completed my Big 5/ Dangerous 7.

I used a PSE Carbon Mach 1 bow at 70#’s. Easton FMJ Injexion arrows with Spitfire Maxx head 1 3/4” cut all at around 500 grains. We built a tree blind and I shot him out of that. He went approximately 70-80 yds after the shot

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
