ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Jose put this hunt together in less than a month.As usual Espacaza had every base covered that could cause a problem.If ever there is a decision Jose made it was always in my favor on this hunt and other hunts with Espacaza. The welcoming committee Jose met me with was one of the highlights.Two ladies,each named Roxann that spoke the language and knew the area we would hunt.They made the drive to our hunting area very entertaining. The drive from Bucharest is a few hours but went by very fast.We stopped to look at some bear shot by the late dictator Ceaucescu.Some very large bear for Romania and several of them exceeding 400 CIC. Brasov was the largest town we passed on the road to our final destination and was home to the driver and both ladies. On arrival we were treated to a quick drink and snack as we talked about our plans.I had the best buttermilk I have ever tasted and the meal could not have been better.I slept like a baby in his mothers arms as I was beat from the trip.The dinner was like a sleeping pill. The next afternoon we headed to the shooting house just after noon.After stopping to shoot the rifle I borrowed there was no doubt if I missed it was not because of equipment error.It was the second time in my life I had been taken hunting in a taxicab.The other was Swaziland. The local gamekeeper was named Zoult.He had over three hundred bear kills to his credit.You could tell from the first handshake you were in "good hands".The walk from the parked taxi was about an hour and long enough for me to know I did not have enough clothes on. Shooting houses come in all shapes and sizes.This was one of the best and oldest I have been in.It had been used a lot but the walls were lined with carpet and cardboard to muffle any sounds.As we set up Zoult got out a pencil and drew bear in different positions then putting an x where he wanted me to shoot.I still have his sketches and it again validated my original thoughts that this was not his first hunt.Once he was sure I knew where to shoot he put the drawings down and promptly went to sleep. He popped his head up at 5:30 like an alarm sounded.Previously he had told us the two bear he'd seen on this bait were coming after 6:00.Seven o'clock came and went. Then seven thirty.I was cold and getting colder.I stood to move around a bit and could not see out of the window facing the bait.I had been up no more than a few seconds when Jose pointed to the bait.I guess you'd call this socially late but welcomed just the same.Zoult had given previous instructions to not move until he sized the bear and the bruin was settled on the bait.This only took a few minutes.Zoult lifted his previous sketches and pointed to the one that reflected our visitors current position.He then opened the window to allow my gun to be put on the bench to steady the rest.Two quick shot's and my Romanian bear hunt was over almost as quick as it started. Once I shot Zoult took us to our waiting cab and Jose and I were on the way to a hot meal and sleep. The next morning Roxann,Jose and I made a loop by Zoults to see the bear and take a few more photo's.Roxann and I had a driver to take us back to Bucherest as Jose had another hunter arriving. This is one of several hunt's I have had with Espacaza and Jose.I have enjoyed each one more than the previous and look forward to the next one.
