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!

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.

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

I am interested in hearing about your wild lion hunts.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
