ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This is an excellent trip for a hunter and a non-hunting spouse. The hunting is challenging enough, without wearing you out and the overall experience is first class from start to finish.

The basic hunt cost is $ 4,950.00 for a hill stag. Most folks, but not all, opt to upgrade this to an estate stag for an additional $2,500.00 for up to 12 pts. After that, you can further update the trophy size for an additional $300.00 per point above 12. ( Note: the upgrade is actually an additional trophy fee and does not include a Hill Stag AND an estate stag. It only includes an estate stag). The outfitter will completely clarify this, in advance, if there are any questions. The Estate Stags are obviously much bigger than the Hill Stags. They are easier to hunt than a free ranging ones, but are as challenging as you want to make the hunt. They can wear you out if want, or anything in between. If you want to hunt a hill Stag, it can definitely be a challenging hunt. After your hunt is complete, you can join the non-hunters for touring and sight-seeing or additional hunting.

There are additional free ranging and estate hunting opportunities if the client has the time and/or desire to hunt additional animals. Again, the outfitter can cover these opportunities to any interested parties.

What makes this, I believe, a truly unique opportunity is the option to take a spouse along on a trip that is equally structured for her entertainment (I admit I am an old fashioned chauvinist, but you can change the roles around if required). While I was out hunting, the ladies were out touring and seeing the sights of the Scottish Highlands with Danielle Grosse (Michael's wife). This is not an ad hoc, "let's go see what we can see" outing. The day trips are well planned, interesting, and structured outings. The transportation is provided in a large touring van, all admissions to castles, Old St Andrews Golf Club, and other venues are included as well as all meals during the tours. Danielle acts as the tour guide and she knows her way around.

The other aspect of this trip that makes it special is what else is included. The above pricing includes airfare to Scotland, lodging at the Lands of Loyal's Estate/Hotel (first class), all meals (probably four star), and the usual trophy care and processing. Finally, in addition to the above services, Michael is a licensed importer and will import your trophies to the States for a fraction of normal import and shipping fees.

Last, but not at all least, the information provided before the hunt and as you plan the hunt is by far the best we have ever experienced. Both Danielle and Michael will answer any and all questions and leave absolutely nothing to be guessed at. They cover before and after the hunt logistics, firearms, trophy care, touring, food and beverage needs, insurance and everything in between. They have been doing this as a couple for 17 years and really do have it down pat. After hunting all over North America, South and Central America, and Africa, this was one of the more relaxing and enjoyable trips I have taken and definitely the best hunting trip I have ever taken my wife on. The only complaint is we are now looking to do this same type hunt in other countries and have had no success to date in doing so. We will keep looking.

Anyone interested in any aspect of our experience is welcome to call me at any time.
