Theres a bowhunting video called Africa at full draw,theres a few good leopards on there,even though they often predate on dogs there are a few american hunters who have taken packs over to africa and hunted leopard succesfully.

My friends dad was a very interesting man, parabat and now a ph, he has some tales about them big spotted boys ,

 

He reckons they are a serious force to be reckoned with even with proper fire power, more so than a lion

Para in the SA Army to PH in the Dark Continent, the man sounds like the lead character from a nineteenth century novel! What a life.

 

Anyway, part II from this series....

PS. I've really enjoyed reading some of the many articles from thefieldsportsmagizine.com. Cracking stuff if you're a shooting man with a broad interest.
