ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I just returned from a first class hunting trip with Hans (Scruff) Vermaak of Coenraad Vermaak Safaris. I am a past president of the Dallas Safari Club and this was my tenth trip to Africa.

The trophy quality of the animals was outstanding (7 gold and 3 silver). We had to cover some miles to get the animals that I was after and to get the trophy quality that Hans wanted to find. However, Scruff was up to the task and had everything planned plus a backup plan if the original plan didnt work. The goal of Coenraad Vermaak Safaris is Dedicated to Exceed Your Expectations. There is no doubt that this was accomplished on this hunt. Scruff has a great personality and is a great judge of trophy quality. He judge animals quickly and accurately. He is just a Good Guy to spend time with on a hunt. This was one of those hunts that makes up for some of the not so good hunts that all of us have. It was one of those hunt that was just right out fun. Coenraad and Hans Vermaak have been coming to the Dallas Safari Club convention for a long time and it was finally time that I go to Africa and hunted with them. What a great decision. I look forward to the next hunt that I have with Scruff Vermaak.

My hunt began by flying into East London from Johannesburg where I was met by Scruff. We then worked our way across the Eastern Cape taking the first five animals in four different locations. We then headed to the Northern Cape where we harvested the springboks and ultimately ended up at the Rooipoort Game Reserve in which Coenraad Vermaak Safaris has exclusive rights. I wished I would have had more time to spend at Rooipoort because it is a beautiful place with a ton of game.

Coenraad Vermaak Safaris is an excellent company with excellent staff. They treat their employees with respect and that is the reason so many of their employees have been with them for a long time. I recommend them highly.

Ian Newmarch is an excellent PH and his trackers are very good. You will enjoy hunting with them. Coenraad Vermaack safaris is a very reputable outfitter and prepared my hunt very well. I highly recommend them. In Sankuyo concession area NG 34, normally you will see elephants bulls every day: 50 to 60 pounds are quite abundants; 60 + are there and with luck and hard working you can find a 70 + pounder or more. The food is excellent and the staff very sympathetic.The landscape is beautifull and the camp comfortable.I recommend that hunt without any restriction.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I am tardy in filing my hunting reports but after spending 30 days in Africa this year, and being a one man business, I had a lot of catching up to do upon my return to Wisconsin. I filled out two forms last evening, but there wasn't enough room on them to vent and rant about South African Air and Johannesburg Airport. Nor was there enough room to pay sufficient compliments to both of the professional hunters I hunted with.

First, South African Air. I am not a fan of New York City but ended up having to stay in NY overnight on my way out. My trip through the overseas terminal turned out to be a breeze given my business class status. Others did not fare so well. The flight over was normal. But once I arrived in Johannesburg the dick dance began.

I had been tipped off that Johannesburg Airport (Whatever Airport, as I call it), was a mess, that gun transport through it was a pain so I wisely elected to file all of my paperwork through PHASA for a fee of $100 or so which turned out to be a blessing. PHASA also arranged meet and greet service for me with Bangy Travel, which was a godsend!

After waiting for an hour or more for our guns to finally come through, about a dozen US hunters were lead on a merry trail by one of the airport workers who insisted on moving our guns to the police department area on a trolley. So far so good. We followed with our luggage trolleys. I then met my Bangy Travel meet and greet representative, Sharon. She proceeded to whisk me through the needlessly complex South African Gestapo, utilizing the PHASA paperwork. After which she took me, my luggage and my guns outside so I could have a much needed cigarette.

She then took me to SAA check in for my flight to Durban. I had to open my gun case two more times, (inside the airport after being cleared by the SA Police Dept.) for a connecting in-country flight. Sharon got me headed in the right direction so I bid goodbye to Sharon and told her I would be back in 12 days and wished to enlist her services once again.

Johannesburg airport had changed since I was last there in 2005 I noticed. It seemed a lot bigger. Oh well. I just passed if off as progress.

After an overnight stay in Durban, where once again I had to open my gun case upon arrival, just to prove that I wasn't a terrorist, my PH Rayno Egner from Coenraad Vermaak Safaris picked me up for our trip into the bush.

12 days later Rayno dropped me at the airport in Durban and helped me through the once again, needlessly complex SA Gestapo so I could fly to Johannesburg. Once on the plane I started looking at my watch, wondering why we were not taking off. It was a cool bluebird day without a cloud in the sky. The luggage was loaded. The hatches closed. The airport was not busy. Finally about 40 minutes after scheduled takeoff we lumbered down the runway.

As soon as we arrived in Johannesburg an hour late I grabbed a luggage trolley and collected my luggage. Sharon being held back by the SA Gestapo, yelling at me, "Hurry!" I had to wait for my guns. Finally I was given my guns and was hustled to the SA Police once again. Here there was a line of very friendly Americans being checked. They could see that I was a bit agitated as I was trying to get checked through so I could make my connecting flight to Namibia yet that night. They offered to allow me to go in front of them, for which I was very grateful.

Once cleared through the Police I was allowed to wheel my cart out into the general population with Sharon running interference in front of me telling me to "come this way", to "hurry."

Johannesburg airport now became a nightmare. None of the Police Department checkpoints where I was supposed to check my guns, yet again, were open. We ran from one desk to the next and were met with blank stares by the SAA ticket agents. Finally, sweating and panting, both Sharon and I realized I was going to miss my flight...because SAA decided to arrive an hour late and the airport was such a disorganized mess and because of the SA Police didn't man their check stations. I had allowed four hours to make the plane. Not enough in SA as it turns out!

Sharon went to bat for me at the SAA desk, reaming them out for their ineptitude and demanding that I be provided free lodging for the night, which she obtained. I was rebooked on a 7 a.m. flight to Namibia and then taken to a goof ball airport hotel for the evening. No porters, no bellman, no carts! So I had to drag all of my gear and guns 20 yards at a time to the elevator, then to my room and then repeat it the next morning. The night was a disaster with planes taking off and landing all night, no sleep and having to get up at 3 a.m. to meet Sharon the next morning to go to the airport.

Sharon picked me up as planned at 4 a.m., three hours before flight time for the 4 minute drive to the airport. When we arrived at the airport Sharon dropped me and my gear at the curb and I got a trolley while she parked the car. We then went up the escalator with the trolley as all of the elevators at "whatever airport Johannesburg" were not running. Once up top we went to the huge new bank of check in desks...where no one had shown up yet. We were first in line but had to wait well over an hour before the first ticket agent showed up.

Then we were told we would have to go elsewhere to check the guns in. Nobody there. We sought assistance. We wheeled all my gear to another checkpoint. Nobody there. Finally after going up and down escalators and going to four checkpoints someone finally took my dread guns. I wasn't quite sure I would ever see them again but I was tired of the run around.

Content in knowing that my nightmare in "Whatever Airport" was now over, I went to the gate, which was about a mile away, seriously, and waited. We were finally checked in and ushered out to a cold bus, where we waited some more. Finally underway we were given a wonderful full tour of "Whatever Airport"...the entire thing! We arrived at the plane but the doors didn't open. We could see our plane...see them loading luggage...see them loading food and beverage, but we waited some more.

After more than 45 minutes standing on the bus, the bus returned to the terminal. Finally another SAA employee came onto the bus, said something to the driver and off we went again, back to the plane. This time we were allowed to board the plane. Orange juice was served. Then an announcement:

"Sorry for the delay. A crew is on its way and it will be only a few more minutes".

This turned into another 45 minutes. SAA had not called a crew. Unbelievable. They forgot. They finally fired the engines about 20 minutes after I was to have landed in Windhoek and we were gloriously off.

When I finally arrived in Windhoek, collected my gear and guns, I was in for another long wait. Nobody was at the Namibian Police Department. So, all three of us hunters on board, waited some more. And some more.

I was to have arrived in Windhoek at 7:30 a.m. We arrived about 9 a.m. By the time we cleared the Namibian Police Department it was almost 11 a.m. and my poor PH's wife had been sitting and waiting for me all that time. Monica Lamprecht is a dear! A wonderful, unflappable lady who takes all of this stuff in stride. She even brought a Jack Russell puppy to hold on the way to their fabulous lodge. ( I love Jack Russells).

My hunt in South Africa with Coenraad Vermaak Safaris and PH Rayno Edner went off without a hitch. Everything went picture perfect with the exception of the weather. A good nyala was my main quarry. On the second day of our safari Rayno told me to stay on the cruiser with the trackers while he hiked up the side of the mountain to get a better look at a good nyala, telling me he had called the office for a weather report and there was a huge cold front rolling up from Cape town and if it were to arrive that we would probably not see another good nyala for the rest of my safari. I followed his advice, hiked up the mountain and sat patiently for the nyala to clear a bush. An hour or so later he did and I took him at about 300 yards. To Rayno's credit the cold front arrived that afternoon, turning the weather sour and cold and windy. And we never did see another nyala. I took a great black wildebeest and a red hartebeest as well.

Namibia was wonderful, save for five days in "Hell" in theWestern Namibian Mountains. Hunters Namibia Safaris, owned and operated by Joof and Jofie Lamprecht, is a class act. Their lodges are better than the Ritz Carlton. The food five star. Everything was beyond expectation. If you are seeking a five star resort...with hunting...Hunters Namibia is the place.

I did not get my leopard due to the extreme cold and wind. Nothing was moving. It happens. Leopard hunting is hard. I understand that. It was not Jofie Lamprecht's fault in any way. We hunted leopard hard some nine to 12 hours a day. The team did everything possible to put a leopard on bait. It just wasn't meant to be. That's hunting. But still Jofie felt somehow responsible. I finally related to him that I had been on 34 high altitude elk hunts in my life. I have taken 12 bulls on 34 hunts...barely 30%. And only two of the 12 were record book animals. Hunting is hunting. Not his fault whatever.

While hunting with the Lamprechts I took a fantastic old Hartmann's zebra stallion and a high ranking steenbok. Jofie also had me take a couple meat animals for the staff, a "cull" gemsbok, (which happened to be better than the one I have on the wall), and a red hartebeest. We also hunted birds almost every day to my delight, doves, sand grouse, guinea fowl and francolin, geese and ducks and jackals. And, I was surrounded by wonderful little Jack Russells at all times. What a great experience!

On leaving Namibia, SAA was at it again. I had traveled more than 15,000 miles with the same gear and guns but now at the Windhoek Airport, SAA tagged me an additional $250 for an "extra piece of luggage", (the same ammo case that had been with me since leaving Minneapolis). I just paid it so I could go home and be done with SAA. But it still irks me. I was traveling business class. I knew the rules and had abided by them in the number of pieces and weight. But SAA for some reason, on the third to the last leg of my 9-flight trip, just wanted to piss me off one more time! And they did!

The trip home was uneventful once I got out of "Whatever Airport". Coming down out of the clouds over New York City, I had to admit, that NYC never looked so good. I was glad to be back home. 30 days is too long to be gone.

I would highly recommend avoiding SAA at all costs. And, avoid Johannesburg if at all possible. The next time I go over I will fly through Germany just so I don't have to ever give SAA another dime of my money and I don't have to see Johannesburg again. The two of them combined are enough to put you off hunting. (Almost).

Fifteen years ago when I went on my first African safari, SAA was a great airline, even in coach. Since it has deteriorated into a cattle call airline that shows little if any regard for its passengers. As hunters we have choices - we do not need to support these people.

On the subject of traveling with firearms, I find it terribly curious that one can buy a "street sweeper"...an AK-47...on any street corner in South Africa for $50 to $75 US on any given evening yet the South African Gestapo treats visiting hunters like muslim (lower case intended), terrorists while American, German, British, Italian, Spanish hunters bring millions of dollars into the South African economy every year and never harm a soul. Yet they treat us all the same...as if we are criminals. For a country with out of control crime, such treatment to visiting hunters flies in the face of reality. It makes no sense.

One more thing, Barbara, I was told that "Whatever Airport" had been expanded and juiced up to accommodate the world soccer tournament during which South Africa hopes to cash a multibillion dollar check. Good luck! Soccer is not important to traveling hunters, I am sorry. But being treated like armed derelicts really grinds me. I have to wonder how many of the real terrorists who will be lurking in SA during the "lawn fairy" tournaments will be checked and rechecked every time they enter an airport. Progress in SA comes at a price. Unfortunately, traveling hunters are paying the considerable price for South Africa's morbidly-slow learning curve. Wake up over there!

Barbara, thus ends my rant. I had great hunts...and if it weren't for SAA and the SA Gestapo, it would have been a tremendous trip. But I arrived home glad to be back in an organized, civilized rational country. I still have a bit of a bad taste in mouth for South Africa. It will be some time before I return, if ever, because of it.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I just wanted to take a few minutes to give you our thoughts on our most wonderful trip.

First and foremost Belinda is awesome to work with, she did more than anyone could ask and every single detail was more than perfect on both ends of the trip, mine and the girls. Not to mention she is fun to work with.

The camp in Borakaloro was an extra pleasure because we got to spend some very quality time with your family, we love Sarah but to get the time with Caleb and Emily was really special. Pat loved the time with Emily and Caleb and the girls thought Emily was great (she thought she was a big girl for the week).

What a treat it was for Ian to be there, our family really loves Ian and I think he is a good PH. The girls had great time hunting with him so that really turned out nice for us. I hope it works so he can be the second PH when we bring the whole family back, I know Glenn would love hunting with him, Ian went with us duck hunting here and Glenn has committed several times how much he enjoyed Ian.

You have told me many times I would enjoy the Eastern Cape, WOW! Did I have a great time! Ashley King is a great PH but even a greater person; we really bonded and had the time of our lives. One other thing I think is important for CVS, Ashley has the best connections with all the places we went, he was constantly treated like he was "King". We whacked em and stacked em. We took 12 record book animals with two being in the top ten, a common springbok that scored 44 6/8 new number 2 and a black springbok that scored 40 7/8 the new number 6 SCI. I think the Copper is top ten as well but don't know as yet.

You will not be surprised to know that I missed Vaal rhebok ten more times. I never want to hunt the thing again. I am sure Ashley was ready to shoot me like you were but I just have a thing. I can't get it.

Chappy is a treat, what a great host they are and their place is really fun. They treated me with the greatest hospitality you can imagine. The Scotch, food and wine were all great. It is a truly great place to stay and hunt from.

I was a little concerned when you told me I had a young lady for my video (I was hoping for Cliff again, ha) but I was soon quite surprised and pleased. Kerry worked her tail off getting shots and staying put in tough situations. You will see the rhino charge and she didn't move she got it all. I was really impressed with how hard she worked, up and down the mountains and always in the right spot. Ashley and I both commented several times about how hard she worked and she was always ready to go and stay until we were ready to quit and was always very pleasant. She is a real asset for CVS.

I don't know anything I would change except my shooting.

One other thing I want you to know, Dale Brand from Iowa called this morning to tell me about his trip to Africa (he was there while we were) with CVS. Have I told you that he is the current world record holder in Nitro Funny Cars going over 300 MPH in under four seconds, really an amazing guy). When I first started telling him about why he should go to Africa his wife got interested and started researching where and what to do. I told them forget it and call CVS, they did and then came back to me telling me that is more expensive and "is it worth it". Finally he flew his plane here and spent the night asking me a million questions. I kept assuring him that this was a deal he wanted to get right and he finally pulled the trigger and signed up.

He thinks you all are the greatest deal he has ever made. He told me this morning. "We toasted Carl McKee at every stop along the way, man are we glad we listened to you". Thank the staff for making me look good with a very important supplier of mine; I really believe they would go anywhere I told them now because of CVS. He said they are already talking about the "next trip with CVS".

I sent you a disc of all the pictures we took in South Africa along with many prints I printed out, please make sure the various people get them for me, I promised I would send them.

Thanks to all for everything, we can't wait to come back (no vaal rhebok though),
