Big cat update: Here’s a new one!!
« on: January 27, 2020, 10:11:10 PM »
Found this Sambar deer deadhead today in Periyar India in the State of Kerala. We were out looking for Tigers. No Tiger spottings, but found this guy in the jungle

"oh I was walking through the jungle looking for tigers and just stumbled across this deer head"

Really!?  Did you ever think you would get to the point in your life where you would say that?  When you say something like that do you just know that's going to be the most bad-a thing the other person has ever heard?  I'm jealous, awesome find!

Haha, definitely the last thing I ever thought I’d be saying!! I think India gets a bad wrap sometimes, but it’s pretty amazing out here!

I always think of this video when it comes to Indian elephants and tigers...

They used to carry Howdah pistols, is that still common over there?

Hey Tbob, ever read jim corbetts books?  Theyll make a guy want to pack some serious heat in tiger / leopard country.  Man that guy had gigantic steel balls.  I think if i was even half the man he was, id have taken over the world by now.  Im assuming youve read his stuff.  If not, i promise youll love it.

Yeah, I’ve seen that video as well. I wasn’t super “comfortable” when he said we were going out on foot, but we went anyways. No pistols like that, just a few shotguns with the guides. Those things look pretty bad-a$$ though!
