Gavin Lipjes is back on the show to do another episode on hunting with hounds. Specifically, we talked about caracal and Bushpig hunting with hounds today. We talk briefly about just what caracal and Bushpig are, how they’re commonly hunted, and how hunting them with hounds is both unique for each species and similar to each other.
