ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I can't give this guy enough raps. I had a fantastic time even though I did not take a trophy(as hunters we all know the feeling of coming home empty handed),he gave me more than I thought I would ever get, a thorough gentleman. We stayed in very comfortable motel each night and dined at a resturant every night. Lunch was more or less a picnic on the mountain with fresh bread, cold meats, cheese, olives and fruit. My hunt was for seven days, during that time we saw many bezour Ibex, all the big billies were at the top of the mountain in difficult spots to get to. Time after time we would plan our stalk up the mountain, leaving in the dark to get into a shooting postion by first light, only to find the big billies had moved, only slightly but out of gun range. We were in snow when at the higher elevations sometimes up to our thighs. We lost a couple of days with bad weather and wind which didn't help the cause. When my seven days was up Erdogan asked if I could change my flights to get some more days hunting, which I did, this gave me another three days. But I couldn't shake the bloody monkey on my shoulder and our bad luck continued. It was time to go home I was physicaly and mentally spent. When I departed for the airport I asked Erdogan how much do I owe for the extra hunting days to which he replied "you have no Ibex, you no pay" That's the sort of gentleman he is. He is a winner.
