Zimbabwe Leopard HuntingZimbabwe Leopard Hunting

This is literally a game of chess, usually the only time you get to see a leopard is when you shoot it. A mentally challenging hunt, pitting a craft sly cat, against the mental aptitude and patience of the hunter. Leopard hunts starts off by baiting, ideal leopard bait is either zebra or impala, and depending on where you are hunting, even baboons. Once you have your bait, the critical thing is to find an ideal sport to hang it. After  you hang your bait, you make a series of drags towards the bait. Your drags consist of the blood and internal organs of the bait animal, then  a game of patience follows. You  wait for the leopard to pick up the drag and follow it to get to your strategically positioned bait. Then  you shoot your leopard from a blind of which its position is carefully thought out. Once the leopard is on the bait, it is now all about stealth and discretion on your part as the hunter.    After that its picture time!
