Adrenaline Rush of Shooting in the Jungle

8 months 1 week ago #663523 by trsmith
In a former life, I worked for a World Renown Archaeologist/Anthropologist Dr. Richard Hansen and spent time in the Mirador Basin of Northern Guatemala on one of our many digs. This is a virgin rainforest and happens to have the highest concentration of jaguar in the world. I was in a tree next to a watering hole miles away from the main camp in the middle of nowhere. They are called the White Lipped Peccary and are considered dangerous. They are known to kill jaguar defending themselves. I had to tie myself into the tree to avoid falling. If I had fallen out these guys would have chewed my leg off.
