A: Bowhunting leopard from a grass ground blind in Zimbabwe some 15 years ago, a large Tom finally came to our bait late at night. It was legal to use a light there so we settled in for an all nighter. About 1:30 a.m. the leopard came to our bait, a warthog wired into a thornbush just eight yards away. As he began eating and crunching bones my PH tapped me with one of my arrows, signifying that it was time to get ready for the shot. I drew my bow and the PH touched the light switch. The leopard disappeared. Ten minutes later he was back. Again came the tap, I drew my bow, the light slowly came up and the leopard once again disappeared into the darkness. Not a word had been said between us. Ten or fifteen minutes later, Chui was back again, feasting on our warthog. The drill was repeated again, still without a word being said. And once again Chui disappeared, only to plant himself about 40" directly behind our heads. He sat there grumbling at us, spitting and snarling for nearly half an hour. We were in a ground blind made of dead grass! Hardly a defense against a leopard. The PH finally clicked his radio several times, signaling the trackers to come to the blind in the cruiser. The trackers pulled up tightly to our blind, brushing the blind with the tires. We looked at one another, signaled time, pulled the door off the blind, tossed my bow and the PH's .458 into the Cruiser's bed, the trackers pulled forward just slightly and we both dove into the back of the cruiser which was immediately under way. About half a mile down the road the PH tapped me and said, "You did well back there." What did I do? I didn't do anything! "Which is exactly what you should have done is nothing for if you had the leopard would have come straight into the blind and killed us both. Well done!
