GAME DESCRIPTION
Major Game Animals Taken: Nyala - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size:
Bushbuck - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size:
Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: My rating of Bushbuck as "abundant" is based on my experience and the knowledge gained of others who hunt with Crusader. I have not listed trophy size because I don't hunt with a tape measure. We hunted for mature animals that well represented the species.


SERVICE RATINGS (excellent, good, fair or poor)
Quality of Outfit: Excellent Guide/PH Ability: Excellent
Condition of Camp: Excellent Condition of Equipment: Excellent
Quality of Food: Excellent Trophy Care: N/A
Name of Airline: Delta (ATL-JNB) and SAA (JNB-DUR) Airline Service: Good
Airline Comments: No issues with Delta or SAA regarding traveling with rifle. Normal process with SA Temporary Import Permit. For traveling on SAA between Durban and JoBerg on the return the ammunition has to be in a separate locked box that is checked on its own. Thus, make sure you are traveling with such a box. Otherwise, leave the ammunition behind after your hunt.

Hunting Fees: Amount: $0
Trophy Fees: Amount: $0
Permits/Licenses: Amount: $0
Commercial Airfares: Amount: $0
Charter Airfares: Amount: $0
Other Costs: Amount: $0
Total: $0


SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: 1. access to great amounts of land holding the game. 2. an honest, free-range hunt for the listed species. 3. killing a Black-Backed Jackal. 4. excellent food and accommodations. 5. hunting in mountain conditions. 6. seeing many other species. 7. getting in a little bit of fishing. 8. seeing lots of Nyala (and other game).
Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? With most of South Africa being high fence, game ranch "hunting", this is pure free range, honest pursuit of your species. It is recommended to everyone.

IMPORTANT NOTES (actions taken if hunter unhappy with hunt)
Notified Outfitter? no Notified Personal Guide? no Notified Booking Agent? no
Seeking any kind of restitution or other settlement from agent, outfitter or guide? no
If Seeking Restitution, What is Sought?


ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I cannot over-stress the quality experience of the free-range aspect of this hunt. This hunt is best described as an African elk hunt due to the terrain and vegetation. Everyday was an honest effort to get on game. The ranches on which we hunted were all within a 25 minute drive. Be prepared to shoot upwards of 200 yards.
