ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Rick Herscher from Alaska booked the hunt and he did a bang up job of providing us with all we'd need to be prepared for anything that came up. Also, he has found himself a great outfitter in John Lucas and family who run a great business, as well as providing the hunter with a great chance of securing his trophy. I spoke with John just two days ago and he said he just returned from a polar bear hunt and they had harvested a monster of a bear.
