Back to the hunt in Nepal - Scott never bagged his tiger. He did shoot one, a great big male tiger, as I witnessed it from the machan platform he was on, but the tiger leaped over the vith, wall of white cloth surrounding the zone of the tiger, before he could fire again and disappeared. In hindsight I can say that this was a fitting finale to the hunt where I learnt so much about white tigers and now I have come to learn of the passion Ralph S. Scott had for tiger conservation and breeding.
