    Leaving 1 week from today for my bucket list hunt in Zimbabwe for leopard. Excited is an understatement. This will be my 3rd trip to Africa but first for Leopard. Hunting with @JWK Safaris in Matetsi. Hopefully the stars will be aligned.....

    Best of luck - will you be hunting an area where artificial light is allowed?

    Hunting at night is an option from what I'm told

    Great. More than doubles your chance at being successful - particularly with a large male. And when you are about to take that shot, half frozen, under a flickering light in the sixth hour of your fifth night over a bait - knowing a black dark follow-up is likely - you will realize you have absolutely nothing to apologize for with the daylight purists. Can't wait to hear your report in a few weeks. Best of luck!

    @mistyron1 I arrived back home last night from your hunting area. The baits are hanging and the cats are busy moving ... Best of luck and enjoy your time up there
