A lot of people commented asking what the fuck was going on, so Geoff posted a comment that I am reposting right below:
It was shot by my good friend Tony Hoza, one of the most respected lion hunters in the West, he retired from guiding after 40 years a few years ago and ever since has been trying to catch one really big cat for himself. In forty years he has only shot two other cats, one was in defense, the other was mounted and then later ruined when his house was flooded. This 170lb male cat was cleanly killed and all the meat packed out to be eaten. The thrill of the hunt is in the chase and the beauty of the surroundings, not the "kill" i have accompanied him on these hunts every year for the last five years and every time has been a pleasure, it is not for the timid or anybody out of shape as the days can be grueling with the snow at times waist deep for hours and the terrain very dangerous.
I'm smiling because i cannot pick the fucker up!!
