Nice animals. Been to both. Great areas, great outfitter. Also nice to see a lefty double.

Already I was beginning to fall into the African way of thinking: That if
you properly respect what you are after, and shoot it cleanly and on
the animal's terrain, if you imprison in your mind all the wonder of the
day from sky to smell to breeze to flowers—then you have not merely
killed an animal. You have lent immortality to a beast you have killed
because you loved him and wanted him forever so that you could always
recapture the day - Robert Ruark

Awesome!!

I see you got your leopard with a double as well. I'm envious. I took my lion with a double back in 2012 with CMS and although I've take a couple of leopard, I want to do so with my double. Tried in 2013 in combo with an ele bull but as is the case sometimes, the bull took more time than we thought and we just didn't have enough time to properly pursue Mr. Spots. I definitely need to try again with the double.

Congrats on an awesome hunt.

Congratulations!

You may have rewritten the book on hunting with a double rifle.

Your scoped Heym is clearly a great rifle, and your use of it was exemplary.

Love that leopard!

Thanks.

Though, @Todd Williams videos shooting game at distance with a 9.3x74R double is what inspired me to try it as well.
