ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
It's a pleasure to forward the attached HUNT REPORT FORM.

It was both my wife, Patricia, and myself's first African hunt.

A total success!

We planned it for over 2.5 years and the detailed planning was well worth the adventure.

Yes we both hunt Patricia is most particularly a phenomenal shot. She had never held a gun in her hand until 1985 when I met her and she started hunting.

Now she consistently shoots a 10-shot group at 100 yards that can be covered with a dime regardless of our 20-40 mile-per-hour Texas winds.
