My daughter and son in law were just back there in WI for a drifting event, he drives. It was early June I think. They said it was quite warm.

I forgot to mention we ate the leopard. I thought leopard steaks were delicious. We also ate some Cape buffalo, impala, zebra and wildebeest.

I’m not a 100% sure yet. I would like to get a Cape buffalo. There are a few of the tiny ten to get yet. I want to get a serval.

I still love kudu and bushbuck hunting, to me that is what I really love to pursue, it reminding me of whitetail hunting!

Nice! I’d love to eat a leopard backstrap! I’ve had bobcat and it was excellent!
Congratulations again and thanks for sharing your great success with us! Oh am I envious!

I enjoyed reading your story, you were rewarded with a nice cat. I don't know though about leopard steaks.

Day 12
I went out to pond that was seeing a lot of action. We made a blind in the reeds. We had the wind in our favor. We were waiting for on last impala. There were a lot of birds flying overhead. Cattle coming in to drink water. As the day got hotter, we spotted a male impala coming in to drink. I got into position and shot him through both lungs as he came into drink. We wrapped up the hunt with lunch at camp.

We cut the hunt short and went back to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. I let the guys spend time with their family before the next hunt. Wayne is usually dropping off one hunter and picking the next hunter up for the next hunt. I had a very successful hunt. I could catch up on some of things I missed while I was gone by being in the city. I have a super heavy load of work lined up for me when I get back. I really want to hit the ground running full speed.

Nyamazana Safaris offered me an excellent hunt to fulfill my dream of getting a leopard. Wayne and his staff are ready to fulfill anyone’s dream of hunting in Zimbabwe.

The hunter before me shot a leopard that scored 17 1/8. They measure the width and length of the skull on the leopard and add it up. Mine measured 17. I’m not even into the numbers game or record book but those are big skulls from mature leopards. Every hunter there this year was a first time leopard hunter and we were all successful, that speaks to the quality of the operation Wayne runs in Zimbabwe.
Unreal!

Super Congrats on a wonderful hunt and trophy. One of the finest pictures in my mind is you and your Tom next to the fire. Spectacular hunt, again congrats. I look forward to hunting with Wayne next year.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
