Epilogue​

After a massive recovery effort, we are back at the camp by noon. We sign paperwork and film the video interviews. The next morning we begin the five hour prayer that is the drive from Makuti to Harare - an hour late - on the wrong side of the road - at 120 kilometers per hour.

What can I say about Tinie? That he’s a legend. Doug Kok, Paddy Curtis, John Sharp and others have given him the torch. Just as the old lawyers passed to me when I was a young, poor, over-worked, full of urine and vinegar Assistant District Attorney who, after a nearly half-decade lucky run of felony and capital murder prosecutions, was, in November 2008, given a chance and made the youngest trial court judge in the state of Alabama by then Governor Bob Riley and thus given the time and wherewithal to, not only, start a family but to also fulfill my lifelong dream of hunting Africa. That was three elections and three children ago.

Ah yes the African roller coaster I did that drive in the back. I have to say it’s a ride I’ll never be able to forget!!
 
Amazing hunt, animals and story. Thank you for taking us along for the ride. Congratulations.

Congrats on a fantastic hunt. I was fortunate to hunt for buff and tuskless with Tinie in August and had a great time as well - a legend for sure !

For those interested, my leopard import permit has been issued by USFWS. My application was mailed to Virginia from Alabama on October 6, 2023, and issued on December 20, 2023. Cat was taken on September 12, 2023.
 
Exactly 8 months after arriving home, my crates were delivered to Artworks Taxidermy in Denver. I find this remarkable considering there was leopard and warthog inside. I really can't say enough good things about Andy Hunter of Chipitani Safari Company for his excellent dip and pack, and Michael Coppersmith of Coppersmith Global Logistics for clearing my crates in a timely manner and lining up trucking to Denver. Each of these gentlemen provided the best of their respective services.
 
That’s awesome. Looking forward to seeing the final product from the taxidermy shop. Congrats again.

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex
