SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: Ongoing conflict between PH and landowner, only spent one night (the last night) in the blind, despite leopard hitting the bait three nights in a row. Appeared to be a difference of opinion between PH and landowner, which puts the client in a bad spot. Lots of shooting for meat animals, and free baboons, though. Great for plains game, not so great for leopard.
