"the log across the creek" track seems to be a big tom! Sand is not easy but a track of 8cm and bigger will be a nice tom.
WOW, three cats feeding is great going, shows a healthy population.
Good luck and keep posting! feels like we are there!
Just out of curiosity, how far is the closest water to the bait?
Good to hear you are enjoying the tale! This area has a very good leopard population, as you will read in an upcoming post we actually had a fourth bait hit but we were now focusing in on the dry creek Tom since the lake Tom was just a bit too young.
The closest water point was probably 300 meters away, maybe less. Wayne knows cats and many of our baits were near water points, probably more so since this was mid October and it was hot. Most of the natural water holes had dried up.
Congratz! What a great trophy. Out of curiosity, why did you not want to take the body shot?
Great stuff and a very nice bull indeed! It is always great when time is taken to ensure exactly where to shoot an elephant to hit the brain, makes it so much more satisfying when done.
Superb!, one shot, full frontal with a raised head! Great shooting and congratulations on taking your bull with the most classic shot of all!
Whats happening with the "log across the creek leopard"??......this is like sitting in the blind and not knowing if the cat is coming in or not....
