Sounds like some people.

Such majestic animals, it would be tough for me to hunt one unless it was a real spot and stalk in a huge area.

(Mvuu is Shona for hippo. The lion wears a collar with a tracking device fitted four years ago by scientists from Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU). They gave him his name after they spotted him chasing a hippo).

Ask me after your out in the bush with 5 lionesses surrounding you.

More correctly I expect you would never purposefully hunt a lion. I would under the right circumstances, but as of now I have no desire to.

Now a cape buffalo at 20 yards by bow? You bet. At the least it would be a good way to die.

It's now common for hunters to give names to deer they see and track in photos.

Just sayin.

Beautiful cat!

My old man shot a big male lion in the Kalahari in the late 80's. Tracking cats or 15 days until catching up with a big male, that's exactly the way I want to do it.
