SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: Nothing unexpected. You cannot hunt in a dangerous game area in early season and expect to see much plains game. Cat baits were therefore hard to get.
Highlights of Hunt: Taking big male leopard in daylight. Saw 7 leopards in total including 2 on the Zambian shore of the Zambesi. Took a really old Buffalo, loosing his teeth. Huge bosses and huge body
Equipment Recommendations: Camp rifle .375 Ruger is accurate and effective. Bang- dead. Don't need your own gun.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? Beautiful camp, great people, lots of dangerous game, effective well-run outfit.
