    Congratulations on your very successful hunt Eric!

    That cat is a beauty and I am with you...I think I'd give up all kinds of things to get that cat full body mounted. You will be staring at it until the end of your days!

    When I lived in Germantown I did most all my shooting at a friend's farm, but I know some guys who shoot here: https://mcmillersportscenter.com/

    Can't wait to see the mount!

    Geeeezzz! I cant believe I missed somehow that you were going for leopard Eric! I would have wished you luck. But on the other hand maybe its better I didn't, LOL. Great big cat Eric and super congrats to you for hanging in there, that's a trophy of a lifetime. Super happy for you!! You earned it.

    Thanks for compliments! I got home safe and sound. I found out a tree fell on my house while I was gone.

    Wow, that sucks, but it doesn't look like it did any real damage to the house, I hope. Get a windstorm?

    Great Leopard! Great report. Love the honest recollection including missed or botched shots. We all do it. Most don’t want to admit it. Sorry about the storm damage. For a moment I thought you lived in my neighborhood in Nashville. Trees down everywhere. Just some bad-a storms rolling through at about 60-70MPH. Again, congrats on the cat. Magnificent trophy. Get started on that room!

    Yes a windstorm, they get bad in the summer when cold air from the north meets the warm air from the south. I don’t think there is too much damage. I will get working on it when I get a chain saw.
