Video of leopard chasing baby monkey while jumping on trees goes viral | LOOK

Leopards are known to be masters of prey. However, a recent video of a leopard crawling on and chasing a baby monkey has gone wildly viral, catching the eyeballs of netizens. The 31-second music video revealed a leopard stealthily climbing one tree before suddenly pouncing on another to kill its prey, a baby monkey. Although the big cat manages to pounce on the small creature and grab it in its mouth, the giant leap forces the leopard to tumble from a great height. However, as the leopard gets up on its paws, it seems unaffected by the fall and sits down with the now dead baby monkey in its mouth.

Taking to Twitter, Madhya Pradesh’s Panna Tiger Reserve wrote: “A rare sight… A leopard can be seen chasing a baby monkey while jumping on the tree.”

Looked:

As soon as the video appeared on Twitter, the microblogging site was inundated with reactions to the gruesome and intriguing images.

“Brute force of nature,” wrote one Twitter user. “A rare sight indeed,” another user commented. “Good photography no doubt, but I was shocked to see the child monkey caught by the chita (leopard). Baboons are dangerous fighters and they used to fight lions or chitaas for the distort…” wrote a third Twitterati.

The viral video has garnered over 5,000 views and received over 198 likes so far.

Salinas wide receiver Nyziah Hunter commits to Cal – Monterey Herald https://suffolkbrc.org.uk/salinas-wide-receiver-nyziah-hunter-commits-to-cal-monterey-herald/ Fri, 01 Jul 2022 04:50:05 +0000 https://suffolkbrc.org.uk/salinas-wide-receiver-nyziah-hunter-commits-to-cal-monterey-herald/ SALINAS — The offers were flattering — sometimes overwhelming for a 17-year-old to ponder.

SALINAS — The offers were flattering — sometimes overwhelming for a 17-year-old to ponder.

Anxiety was starting to mount for Nyziah Hunter, as offers from many Division I football programs filtered through.

One, however, left a mark for arguably Salinas High’s most recruited player since offensive tackle Brian Thure in 1991.

“I felt Cal was right for me,” Hunter said.

Like Thure, Hunter landed at Berkeley, where the senior receiver pledged Thursday to be a Bear.

“I told coach (Cal) Wilcox on Monday that I was going to commit on Thursday,” Hunter said. “I just felt the end of the month was the perfect time to make my decision.”

With that came a sense of relief for the 6-foot-2, 200-pound fighter, who also had offers from Pac-12 rivals Oregon State and Washington.

“Knowing that my family, friends and coaches can come and support me was important to me in my decision,” Hunter said.

Hunter, who set a school record last spring in Salinas by reaching the state track and field championships in the 100 yards at 10.62, said Cal ticked a lot of boxes.

During his visit two weeks ago, he found a comfort zone meeting the coaches, touring the campus and setting foot in historic Memorial Stadium.

“I really liked the relationship the coaches had with their players,” Hunter said. “It felt like they were a family. There was a lot of laughter. It was a nice experience. It was a good time.”

Hunter is coming off a season in which he caught 41 passes for nearly 700 yards and eight touchdowns in nine games for the defending Gabilan Division champion Cowboys.

Boasting breakaway speed and soft hands, Hunter often encountered doubles teams in the second half of the season last fall.

“Hard work has paid off for a great kid,” said Salinas football coach Steve Zenk, who learned of his decision while in Jamaica. “He’s going somewhere to get a great education, play a great brand of football and play in the same position in a familiar offense.”

The fact that Cal’s offense was similar to Salinas’ was a selling point for Hunter, who was also drafted as a defensive back by half a dozen colleges.

“Knowing that I can make plays in this offense without learning a whole new playbook was a selling point,” Hunter said.

With Hunter garnering so much attention last fall, Zenk found other ways to get the ball for his top student, as evidenced by the fact that he turned 12 carries into over 150 yards and four touchdowns. .

“I couldn’t be happier for him,” Zenk said. “He’s just a great boy. He’s a great role model for all of our kids at 831.”

Hunter’s athleticism off the football field caught the eye of scouts as he led Salinas in rebounds on the hardwood and won two events in the on-track league finals.

“It was brought up,” Hunter said. “When I was at Colorado State, the coaches asked me what else I did? When I told them, they said ‘it’s you.

Colorado State and Washington both signed Hunter as a defensive back, where he was used last year as a corner lock for Salinas.

“I wanted to be a catcher,” Hunter said. “I mean – affected!”

Cal went 5-7 last year, closing the season winning three of its last four games, including a decision against USC.

During his visit to Oregon State, one of his hosts was former Carmel tight end JT Byrne, who delivered a compelling pitch to Hunter.

“I spent a lot of time with JT,” Hunter said. “After the visit, it was a consideration. I liked what Oregon State offered. But after visiting Cal, I knew he was the right person for me.

Hunter, who can’t officially sign until November, didn’t want to delay his decision until his senior season. Finding the right school took a weight off her shoulders.

“I can go into my senior season and just play football,” Hunter said. “I enjoyed the process. But now I can breathe deeply, relax a bit and enjoy the rest of my summer.

Around the same time, it was announced on Monday that the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot would hold a surprise hearing on Tuesday “to present newly obtained evidence and receive testimony.” Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) apparently tried to deflect by tweeting a photo of his favorite hobby. And actress Daryl Hannah was just one of many to poke fun at the state representative.

“The AR-15 is my favorite shotgun,” Greene bragged on Twitter Monday afternoon, less than an hour before news of the hearing hit news outlets. In the attached photo, Greene is pictured sitting in a jeep with a helmet and earmuffs. It’s also worth pointing out that she wears a seatbelt across her chest, so obviously all basic, common-sense safety precautions aren’t out of her reach.

As the tweet began to go viral, gun safety advocates and avid hunters ridiculed his weapon choice. Although AR-15 style semi-automatic rifles have become increasingly popular among NRA types in recent years, this is primarily due to the fact that they have become the weapon of choice in very mass shootings. hyped and that Democrats want to ban them. And although some hunters prefer to hunt with AR-15s, they were inspired by assault rifles used in wartime and were not originally designed for animal hunting.

In other words, it goes without saying that most truly experienced hunters would prefer to hunt with a more accurate rifle, not something that, well, makes your prey unrecognizable.

Unsurprisingly, political feminist account TheVolatile Mermaid was one to jump into the fray, tweeting at Greene: “A chainsaw is my favorite tool for making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.” The Splash The actress also built on the tweet, joking, “And a hacksaw is great for flossing.”

“A street sweeper works wonders on my kitchen floor” tweeted another user, while others added: “A leaf blower certainly cools my morning coffee quickly” and “A hedge trimmer gets rid of pesky hemorrhoids.”

Yippee! The latter sounds like a fairly spicy meatball.

Given that Greene is almost certainly complicit in the Jan. 6 insurrection, it’s understandable that she would want to distract from Tuesday’s hearing. We won’t have to wait long to find out what new evidence the committee is about to uncover, and whether Greene was involved and his degree of involvement. Buckle up the kids, it should be a wild ride.

  • Best Palico Support Moves

Rise of the Monster Hunter reintroduced the ability to hire multiple buddies after World limited you to one Palico for the entire game. To keep Felynes distinct from the new Canyne buddies, Palicos come with a wide variety of support moves and will periodically use these moves during hunts to help the player.

RELATED: Monster Hunter Rise: Everything You Need To Know About Pals

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

Palicos are divided into different support types, but even within a small number of types there is plenty of variety to be found. However, not all moves are created equal – there are a few pitfalls to avoid. A well-equipped Palico tailored to your personal preferences and playstyle can be a tremendous asset on even the most dangerous hunts.

What are the types of Palico?

There are five types of Palico – Healer, Assist, Combat, Bomber, and Rally. The type determines the Palico’s support moves. Each Palico has a range of five support movements which will unlock as it levels up. Level 1 and Level 20 moves are the same for all Palicos of the same type.

For example, all Assist Palicos have Felyne Silkbind and Poison Purr-ison. Level 5, 10 and 15 support moves are Random. There is a slightly greater chance that the move in these slots will match the type of Palico – as in, the most common level 5 move found in Healer Palicos is Healing Bubble – but they will frequently have moves of other types as well .

To sum up, the first and last support moves are locked and type-exclusive, but the middle three are random. Support types and moves do not affect a Palico’s skills or stats. You cannot change a Palico’s type or skills after you engage it.

Healer

Level Support the move Effect
1 herbal healing Places a plant with restorative powers that continuously heals all nearby allies.
5 healing bubble Create bubbles that burst and heal when touched. Big bubbles heal better.
ten Vase of Vitality Places a vase that cures various status ailments. Stand in the smoke to receive its effects.
15 Furbid Acorn Heals a friend and temporarily prevents their health from being lost.
20 horn of health Significantly recovers Buddy and player health.

healer palicos are all about restoring health. herbal healing and Vase of Vitality act as the hunting aides Escuregot and Antidobra, respectively. healing bubble creates two bubbles, one small and one large, which will restore health when you burst them with an attack. Bubbles last for a certain amount of time and attacks from monsters or buddies will not cause them to burst.

horn of health will restore your health without having to interact with anything or stay in a certain area. Furbid Acorn is the least useful move. If a buddy loses all their health, they will simply leave the battle for a few moments until they regenerate. All other moves can heal buddies and hunters, so there’s no reason to use one that only helps the former.

If Palico healers suffer from anything, it’s overspecialization. As you get better at hunting and stockpile better healing items, a Palico with only healing moves is a bit of a stretch. They are still very good for new players, and even late game is good to have at least one Healer skill on a Palico of any type.

To help

Level Support the move Effect
1 Felyne Silk Link Fires movement-impairing iron silk at large monsters, using a Palico-sized ballista.
5 Come on, fight, win Reduces hunter stamina drain while your Palico is dancing.
ten Summeown Endemic Life Places a scented pouch that entices nearby endemic life to approach.
15 Shock Purr-ison Sets up a shock trap that prevents large monsters from moving.
20 Poison Purr Sets a trap that immobilizes large monsters and inflicts poison on them.

Assist Palicos have a variety of support moves that aren’t direct damage or healing. Come on, fight, win is very good for hunters who are often concerned about their stamina. The real prices are the two purring movements. Any monster walking into a Palico’s trap will be immobilized for as long as it would be by a hunter’s trap. You can’t capture monsters with Palico traps, but they’re great opportunities to breathe or just deal uninterrupted damage. Shock Purr-ison is available for Palicos of all types, and it’s definitely best support move for this slot.


Felyne Silk Link will restrict a monster’s movement, but it can still attack. Summeown Endemic Life spawns Endemic Life in the area, including a free Wirebug. That’s fine but there are much better options for the level 10 slot.

Struggle

Level Support the move Effect
1 rousing roar Unleashes a fearsome roar, empowering buddies and hunters.
5 Whirling Assault Spin around using their weapon to create a whirlwind then crash into monsters.
ten power drum Sounds a drum that increases the attack and defense of hunters and buddies.
15 The feat of the foot of the fleet Attract a monster’s attention, skillfully dodge its attack, then launch a counterattack.
20 Furr-ious Your Palico becomes furious. In this state, their attack power increases significantly.

Fight the palicos support their hunter with extra DPS. They are more aggressive than other types and often attract the attention of monsters. But when it comes to dealing damage, even Fight Palicos are upgraded by Palamutes in almost every way. Most self-buffing moves in the Fight Palico have an equivalent Palamute Gear scroll.

The real reason to choose a Fight Palico is their hunter moves. rousing roar will give you a considerable affinity boost that lasts a long time – over two minutes. Power Drum is also excellent. Although Rousing Roar is extremely good, picking a Fight Palico will also lock its level 20 move because Furr-iouswhich is not very helpful. Whirling Assault and The feat of the foot of the fleet are also unremarkable.


RELATED: Monster Hunter Rise: Elemental Blights Explained

Bomber

Level Support the move Effect
1 Felyne Wyvernblast Fires Palico-sized Wyvernblast shells at monsters, setting off explosions when they hit.
5 Zap Blast Spinner Unleash a horde of spinning top-shaped bombs that hunt down monsters.
ten anti-monster mine Places a mine that explodes when triggered by a large monster, sometimes staggering it.
15 Bombay Lightning Place a bomb that flies through the air and emits a flash of light.
20 Giga Barrel Bombay Dash an enemy with a Giga Barrel Bomb.

Palico Bomber also focus on dealing damage. The main difference between them and Fight Palicos is that Bombers have a bit more utility. Their explosive attacks are also good for smash monster parts.

Felyne Wyvernblast, Zap Blast Spinnerand Giga Barrel Bombay are all good moves that deal good damage. anti-monster mine is a good attack that has the added utility of inducing a flinch. Bombay Lightning works similarly to throwing flash bomb fighters. This can be very useful if timed at the right time, but Palicos will miss their shot quite often. None of Palico Bomber’s moves are inherently bad, but neither are they great. Flash Bombay is a decent option on a Palico of a different type, but that’s about it.

Gathering

Level Support the move Effect
1 Endemic Life Dam Cast endemic life on monsters from a ballista. Results vary depending on the creatures thrown.
5 Mega boomerang Throws a gargantuan boomerang based on weapon attack type at enemies.
ten Camouflage Your Palico temporarily cloaks itself, preventing it from being targeted by monsters.
15 shock tripper Releases a lingering electrical field that inflicts lightning on monsters within.
20 pilfer A boomerang attack that steals materials from monsters.

Gathering of the palicos are very popular among late game hunters for a reason: pilfer. If your Palico hits with Pilfer, it take an extra material from the monster. You can view stolen items on the reward screen at the end of a hunt. Rare drops like plates and gems are included in the item pool for Pilfer, and a Palico will likely get 2-3 Pilfer hits in a single hunt.

The other exclusive rally movement, Endemic Life Dam, is unpredictable. When your Palico uses the move, it will fire a Blastoad, Poisontoad, Paratoad, or Sleeptoad at the monster. Sometimes they will forget to catch a toad and the move will fail. Toads your Palico shoots are not part of your Endemic Life inventory. It is completely random whether the move works or not. When it works it’s extremely effective for a level 1 move.


Mega boomerang, Camouflageand shock tripper aren’t particularly good compared to support moves of other types at these levels. In reality, Camouflage is to be avoided. One of the biggest functions of buddies is to draw aggro, so going invisible defeats the purpose.

Best Palico Support Moves

There are many good options for support moves in each slot. Much depends on your style of play and your needs. If you want the best all-around buddy, look for a Gathering Palico with the following moveset. This Palico will be able to buff the hunter, heal blights, hinder the monster, and steal additional materials.

  • Level 1: Endemic Life Dam
  • Level 5: Come on, fight, win
  • Level 10: Vase of Vitality
  • Level 15: Shock Purr-ison
  • Level 20: pilfer

While talking to Iori at Buddy Plaza, use the Scout option to select Gathering Palicos. After that, it’s pure luck if a Palico with a certain moveset will be available for rent.

Amit Mital, senior director of cybersecurity and policy at the White House National Security Council (NSC), is looking for a unified and trusted secure digital identity technology that he says has the potential to significantly reduce identity-based fraud and the success of attempted ransomware attacks.

Speaking at an event hosted by Okta on June 23, Mital said unifying themes of such technology would include interoperability, ease of use and the ability to be legally binding. The White House NSC official didn’t indicate any particular technology being developed, but he offered a list of requirements and gains.

“The question is how to link [identity technologies] for an interoperable solution,” he said. Individual identity solutions, he said, tend to be “isolated” and lead to “ever more complex password requirements”.

“We need a solution that works for all areas,” he said.

One of the defining requirements for future identity technologies is the critical need for people to present online identification that rises to the level of legality currently offered by the presentation of a driver’s license or passport. .

Mital endorsed the usefulness of multi-factor authentication schemes, saying they work well in enterprise environments, but also explained that they cause unnecessary “friction” for users because they are also time consuming.

This biggest stumbling block of user friction, he said, becomes evident when citizens try to manage their health records. The problem is particularly troublesome, he said, because Americans have an average of 17 health care “relationships” with service providers ranging from doctors to insurers. The need to prove one’s identity in this range of relationships “causes enormous friction”, he said.

“Imagine if I could prove my identification all at once” with a secure and trusted digital identity that would be “reusable in any scenario,” he said. Achieving this goal, he said, would significantly reduce credential-based fraud and ransomware attacks motivated by credential theft.

This year’s edition of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup is coming into the home stretch, with just eight teams remaining in pursuit of the 2022 trophy. Six of those teams are from MLS, while two of them are from lower divisions of the American football hierarchy. Sacramento Republic FC, who were just moments away from securing an expansion berth in MLS, play in the second-tier league USL Championship, while Union Omaha SC competes in USL League One. third level.

What is the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup?

The US Open Cup is the oldest national football cup tournament in the United States, dating back to 1913. Any team that plays in a league that is part of the American football organization can qualify for the tournament, opening it to many lower division teams who can try their hand at making a deep run.

2022 marks the first edition of the USOC since 2019, with subsequent editions in 2020 and 2021 having been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

How does the Open Cup work?

All clubs enter the tournament at different stages, with the first round starting with clubs from the lowest divisions like the NPSL, USL League Two and the Open Division which allows amateur teams from local competitions to qualify. The second round sees more clubs from lower divisions joining, including the USL Championship, MLS Next Pro and USL League One.

MLS teams only begin to join in the third round, when 17 of the league’s teams entered in April and faced the remaining lower division teams that advanced from the second round. The fourth round, or round of 16, sees the entry of the bottom eight MLS teams, which consist of the four teams playing in the CONCACAF Champions League, followed by the next two best teams that have achieved the best results from each conference in last year’s MLS season. .

Only 25 of the 28 MLS teams participate in the tournament, as the competition is only open to clubs based in the United States. Vancouver Whitecaps, CF Montreal and Toronto FC are not eligible to participate in the USOC.

Who won last year’s tournament?

Since no tournament was held in 2020 or 2021, MLS team Atlanta United FC have been defending USOC champions since 2019. They beat Minnesota United with a final score of 2-1, thanks to first two goals before the 20th minute.

Who should win this year’s tournament?

Although odds for the winner of the tournament are not yet known on DraftKings Sportsbook, there are still two lower division teams in Union Omaha SC and Sacramento Republic FC fighting to stay alive in the competition against tougher MLS clubs. .

History will show that an MLS team is usually favored to win, as the last non-MLS club to win the trophy was the Rochester Rhinos of the now defunct A-League in the 1999 edition of the tournament. The Rhinos have since changed their name and now compete in MLS Next Pro as Rochester New York FC.

How can I watch the Open Cup?

All US Open Cup matches will be shown live on ESPN+ as they have exclusive rights to the tournament until 2022.

An Aboriginal drumming group kicked off the first of many summer events designed to teach residents how to discard and stretch deer hides.

The first “Deer in the City” cultural event kicked off Saturday outside the Prince Albert Arts Center at the Downtown Street Fair. The group collectively acquired portable stretching frames set up to string and stretch the skin of a mule deer over it.

Leading the charge was organizer and activist Jennifer Lenny, who said she wanted to give people the opportunity to explore this aspect of Indigenous culture.

“A few years ago, someone I knew in Ottawa did some deer hide scraping around town, and I thought that was a pretty cool idea,” Lenny said. “My thought was, ‘why not do that here in Prince Albert?'”

Lenny is part of an all-female, two-spirited drumming group called the Spirit Strong Singers. They applied for funding through the City of Prince Albert and the Prince Albert Municipal Cultural Action Plan to help sponsor supplies and hide the scratching.

“The pelts were donated by local hunters,” Lenny explained. “We show both processes, scraping the fur and scraping the flesh.”

Lenny said it can be very difficult for people to access cultural activities, especially those like the disposal of hides, which usually only happen in camps and not in urban areas. Lack of transportation and funding for extended visits to rural areas made it difficult, so the Spirit Strong Singers decided to bring the practice to Prince Albert.

“That’s what I hope people take away: understanding what processing hides is like and developing an appreciation for the work that goes into making end products like moccasins or mukluks,” Lenny explained. “It starts with scratching the fur and eventually that hide is tanned or made into rawhide, drums, rattles or other works of art. I think it’s beneficial to learn what this process actually entails, and why not do it here in the heart of the city where people can see what it’s all about? »

The Spirit Strong Singers plan to hold “Dear in the City” events throughout the summer, including one in Kinsmen Park to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day on Tuesday. They will also be hosting events July 23 and August 21 in Kinsmen Park, July 24 at the Shoreline, and August 20 at the downtown sidewalk sale.

Lenny said the group wanted to make good use of Prince Albert’s parks, while giving residents a glimpse of something they don’t normally see.

“There are many other opportunities for people to explore an indigenous culture with skin scraping.”

PEABODY — Beyond the obvious significance of the Peabody softball team going for a state title today (5:30) against Taunton, the game will have added significance for coach Tawny Palmieri.

The game itself is important because it is the first time in the history of the program that the Tanners have made it this far.

“We reached the North Final a few times,” Palmieri said, “but we just couldn’t get past it.”

This year, there was no North Finals to worry about as it was a statewide competition. So, naturally, the Tanners blew up until they found themselves at UMass Amherst. And for Palmieri, it’s surreal.

“It certainly is, going back to UMass and coaching instead of playing,” she said. “It will be a special moment, because I was involved in the UMass program and played on this court.”

In fact, Palmieri played on the pitch where today’s match is being played. He didn’t have a name when she was there. Now it does: the Elaine Sortino Field — named after the coach she played for during the two years she was at UMass. Sortino died of breast cancer in 2013.

Palmieri, who played at Peabody High, was at Amherst for a redshirt freshman season and then made the roster as a rookie. However, she read the writing on the wall and saw that her playing time would be limited.

“When you want to play,” she said, “it’s hard to sit on the bench watching 65 games.

But I learned so much about how to play at this level,” Palmieri said. “I learned a lot about the game. It will be really nice to play on Elaine Sortino Field and win a state title.

Palmieri’s time at UMass ended after that first year. She transferred to Merrimack to wind down her career and ended up as an All-America third baseman.

Peabody earned the right to play in that game after Tuesday’s 3-2 bare-knuckle win over Wachusett in the semifinals. Abby and Isabel Bettencourt’s battery held Wachusett’s bats in check while on defense the Tanners made all the ordinary plays and even a few gems. The game of the game came in the fourth inning when Logan Lomasney, at second, dived one way to throw a ground ball toward the middle, then threw, the other way, to first with the bases charged and two outputs. At the time, Peabody was leading 1-0.

Then, after the Tanners increased that lead to 3-1, came the bottom of the seventh, when Wachusetts’ Tiegen O’Brien hit a one-out triple and scored on a hit. At that moment, Palmieri felt she needed to talk to Abby.

“She’s a good pitcher and she’s had a great year,” Palmieri said. “I just wanted to let him know that everything would be fine.”

And they were. Bettencourt struck out the next two batters for the victory.

Taunton is the 2021 defending champion, so Palmieri thinks he has the experience and knows how to win.

“But our kids will take on anyone,” she said. “They have a first-year pitcher and ours is a second. It should be a good game. I hope so.”

Deer hunting in the beautiful Scottish Highlands https://suffolkbrc.org.uk/deer-hunting-in-the-beautiful-scottish-highlands/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 09:08:33 +0000 https://suffolkbrc.org.uk/deer-hunting-in-the-beautiful-scottish-highlands/ In 2019 I read an article by renowned outdoor writer Craig Boddington regarding deer hunting in Scotland, something that has long been on my to-do list.

In 2019 I read an article by renowned outdoor writer Craig Boddington regarding deer hunting in Scotland, something that has long been on my to-do list. Boddington had hunted with International Adventures, which he highly recommended, and I went online to look into the questions, then emailed. Within minutes, I received a phone call from Michael Grosse, who along with his wife Danielle and son Justin run the company, which provides hunting opportunities around the world.

My son, Josh, and I would immediately book a deer hunt in Scotland, and my wife, Ginny, would come for half price as a non-hunter. A tour bus and guide are readily available, not only for non-hunters, but also for hunters wishing to see all the sites.


Well folks, due to the COVID pandemic Scotland was shut down completely in 2020 and then again in 2021. At the start of 2022 we were wondering if our hunt would ever come to fruition, but we finally learned that it was a hit, and Josh and I were soon booked to hunt during the first week of June.

A real beauty about International Adventures is that they arrange everything for you, including planning and even round-trip airfare, which is included in the overall cost of the hunt. International Adventures also only has four deer hunters at a time, to keep things small and very nice playground, and it’s one-on-one field guiding service that I was really looking forward to.

We planned our trip to arrive in Edinburgh three days early to explore and enjoy the sites, with five days for the hunt (followed by two more days in Edinburgh before returning home). Our bus picked us all up at the hotel and then it was a three hour drive due north through the scenic Highlands to the very quaint and pleasant Loch Kinord Hotel in the small market town of Dinnet. The meals provided there were prepared by a bona fide chef, and well, folks, it was such a pleasant atmosphere, we all got along very easily. Sitting on a terrace and listening to the wood pigeons cooing as the sun set really topped off the evening.

Our location in Scotland was at the same latitude as Sitka, Alaska and had the same long days at this time of year. You can literally hunt from 4 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., but deer are usually only out in the open early in the morning and late at night and spend the rest of the day under cover. Because the nights and sleep time were short, it was strongly recommended to take a nap at noon.

I always inform my hunting guides of any physical limitations I may have well before I show up, as it is best never to take them by surprise. In my case, I haven’t fully recovered from losing an argument with an unruly horse, and my left knee needs a brace, and trekking poles are needed to cover rough terrain. Right now I’m not very nimble or fast, but I get around. Michael Grosse assured me that it was not a problem at all and that we were going to do it! He was right.

The alarm clock woke me up that first morning at 3 a.m., and soon after, I was riding with Justin Grosse to meet the game warden who was to be my guide that morning. Sean Emmett is the chief game warden of a 27,000 acre estate, of which he knows every detail very well. First, he presented me with his rifle, which I would use. Bringing your own firearm to the UK isn’t impossible, but in my mind it’s very impractical due to all the bureaucracy and rules. For a small fee per hunt, it was very wise to use the game warden’s rifle and ammunition.
