ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
We lost the first day due to weather that prevented us from flying. The second day we were flown out and within hours we were looking at our first legal Stone ram. He was not quite what I was looking for so we made plans to hunt an adjoining drainage the next day to look for a larger ram and then get a closer look at the first ram if needed. The third day we hunted the adjoining drainage hard and did not find any other rams. In the afternoon we went looking for the rams we spotted on the first day only to find some other hunters were working them. The next day we spiked out to another camp and hunted that area for four days. We spotted quite a few herds of ewes and lambs and a couple of bands of rams. None of the rams were what we were looking for so we went back to the main camp and made plans for another spike camp. Two of the other guides (Brent and Colin) had finished with their hunts and joined AJ and I for my hunt. On day eight we made a seven hour ride to the next spike camp and got camp set up just before dark. The night we arrived I came down with some intestinal distress that carried in to the next day. Somewhat fortunately we were weathered in on day nine so I tried to wait it out. I was not able to eat anything. On day ten I was not feeling any better but we made a hunt anyway. We spotted two young rams before getting weathered out of the high country. On the way back to camp I was able to take a nice mountain caribou. The next day Art was able to fly some medicine in for me and I spent the day recuperating while AJ and Colin scouted. After not eating for three days I needed rest and time for the medicines to work. AJ and Colin made it back late that night with a great report of two good rams. On day 12 I was feeling much better and was finally able to eat something. We made a hunt for the rams AJ and Colin had seen the day before. It was a tough climb but we were finally closing the distance on the rams. About that time a sleet squall came over the ridge and caused the wind to change direction right for the rams. The closest we got to them was about 700 yards. It was a disappointing end to the day's hunt. We spent the rest of the day climbing ridges trying to relocate the rams. We found several of the smaller rams and finally found one of the good rams we were after high on a far ridge. The next morning we were up and going early to see if one or both of the big rams had rejoined the band of smaller rams. Again it was a tough climb but we were finally within stalking distance. Our stalk worked perfectly and when the rams fed out of a cut at just over 300 yards I had my ram. It was a very nice ram at 38 and ¾ by 14 and ½ on the long horn. Nothing like waiting until the second to the last day to get a sheep!

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I had a great experience with an outfitter for stone sheep this year, and I just wanted to send you a copy of the report.

It takes at least two days to get from Arkansas to northern British Columbia and to the airport in Fort Nelson, but the Canadian scenery gets grander by the hour. My friends Moseley and Dann Hoover and I were met in Fort Nelson by our outfitter Arnold Henhapl of Muncho Lake Outfitters, and loaded up his truck for the three hour trip to his ranch near Muncho Lake off the Alaska/Canadian Highway about 160 miles further north. The next day, we met our guide Willie Edwards, who turned out to be a lot of fun to be with as well as an excellent guide. We loaded the packhorses and began our 20-mile journey to our base camp to the north in the higher elevations of the Rocky Mountains of northern British Columbia. We arrived in the valley of our spike camp around 1:30 a.m. tired but excited. We had just witnessed our first of many moonrises over the mountains. When we got up the next morning, we saw that our camp was in a basin at about 5,000 feet in elevation, near the tree line. The weather throughout the trip was 85 degrees and sunny skies.

After breakfast, we saddled up, descended to the valley floor, and headed northeast up a larger valley. We had not gone more than 100 yards from our camp before our path was temporarily blocked by a 6 1/2 foot grizzly. He was more perplexed than concerned, and quickly ambled off into the willows on the mountainside, as we continued on. There were occasional caribou, solitarily grazing amid the snowfields and green willows. We stopped many times to glass the mountainside and skyline, looking for rams, but saw little for the first few hours. Leaving the horses near a high lake above the tree line near the end of the valley, we climbed the mountain to a saddle to view the valley we had passed through, as well as the valleys beyond. We immediately spotted a young ram, which was more interested in watching us than he was in running away. After we determined that he was alone, we walked the skyline to another saddle for a different view. The scenery was breathtaking, but we saw few sheep.

After retreating back down to the high valley floor and retrieving our horses, we started the trip back to our camp about 9:00 p.m. With daylight until around 10:30 p.m., we had plenty of time to hunt. We stopped to glass a skyline we had watched earlier in the day, on a hunch by our guide. Sure enough, this time we spotted two rams, sunning themselves in the snow at the crest. One ram sported a 40-inch horn on one side, but had only a stub of a horn on the other, perhaps the result of battle or trauma. The other ram was very young. But, we determined that the opposite face of the mountain was the first place we should start the next day. Where there were two, there must be more.

After a good breakfast, we started out again on day two of our hunt by going up the second valley to see if we could spot more rams from the same party we had seen the previous evening. We climbed the mountain where we thought they should be, and as we crested the top, there was a good ram below the crest only about 35 yards away! In a hushed voice, our guide told me to creep up to the crest and take a look. I crawled into position, and sure enough there he was. And, he was coming closer and directly below me. At only 30 yards, I leveled a shot. There was a raised crest of rock five feet in front of me, and not thinking about my scope mounted two inches above the barrel and that I was sited in at 200 yards, I hit the crest of rocks on my first shot. I quickly shot a second time, but the sheep never flinched. I couldn't believe I had missed again, but soon he collapsed. After a couple of seconds, he kicked one last time and started to roll down the mountain. The sheep hunter's nightmare was beginning. How far would he tumble? Would he be out of reach? Would his horns suffer in the fall? We saw him stop fortunately on a ledge of the downhill face, which was considerably more rocky and steep than the side we had just climbed in our ascent to the top.

Deciding that he was more reachable from the north face, we retraced our climb down the south side, got on our horses, and journeyed around to the other valley and to the base of the cliffside where he was perched. I had bagged the ram at 3:30 p.m., but it was 7:30 p.m. by the time we arrived at the base of the mountain on which we correctly guessed he lay high above. There was nothing left to do but climb up the cliff side to retrieve my trophy. While my hunting partner Fred watched us through a spotting scope at the base of the mountain, Darin and I climbed even higher to the ledge where the ram lay. The climb was treacherous, but the view was fantastic. And, there he was. While his body was pretty banged up in the fall, his horns were intact. After a few pictures, and some initial caping, we started down. Our descent was made easier by "skiing" across snowfields and sliding down shale slides -- not necessarily recommended, but we were anxious to get my prize down the mountain.

We arrived back at camp at 2:30 a.m., tired but elated! I had a nice nine-year-old, 38 inch ram with a good curl and a beautiful cape. We celebrated by cooking steak and potatoes and looking forward a real meal of sheep steaks the next night. Sheep hunting is hard work, but the rewards of bagging a trophy animal in such majestic surroundings make the trip well worth the effort. I can highly recommend Muncho Lake Outfitters for a first class hunt, quality guide, and terrific scenery. They can be reached October through May at (250) 743-1560. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I know I wasn't.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
To: The Hunting Report From: Arnold Henhapl of Muncho Lake Outfitters Date: October 29, 1998 Re: Report filed by E. J. Deubler

Thank you for your letter concerning the report filed with you by our hunter Mr. E. J. Deubler. I understand from it, or better I know, that he was very dissatisfied with this hunt, his guide and the game in our hunting country. But let me start at the beginning.

E. J. came to us on the recommendation of a hunter that hunted with us for three years now. His name is Vance Gamso, 4641 Alba Road, New Orleans, LA 70129; phone: 504 254 1869.

While Mr. Gamso's wife took a moose in 1996 he himself had to leave without taking a trophy. He returned in 97 and was fortunate enough to take the biggest moose taken in Northeast British Columbia that year. A 65 inch Canadian moose. Would you please go through the trouble and verify this information.

At the time when E. J. arrived I had to make a decision and put him and his hunting partner to a camp with Angus McDonald, the guide, and John Domhof who was supposed to just keep Camp for them. He went into a spike camp situation with these gentlemen simply because I thought it would offer him the best chance of success.

The guide himself, Angus, is I believe 57 years old. An Indian that was born in this area a short while before anybody even thought about building the Alaska Highway. He continues to live in a small cabing about 15 miles from the highway on Moose Lake which is probably two hours from where they were camped by horse. Him and his brother also hold the trapping licence on this part of the country and know it well.

He has guided for us off and on for three years now, despite that he may not be the best communicator, has always done well for his hunters. But more to this later.

In any event, when I flew to their Camp on day four I found E. J. and his hunting partner quite exhausted, wet and misreble. I was told that his hunting partner got a goat and that there was more then one in the bunch. They did also spot another one right behing camp and Angus took E. J. up there. They blew this stalk as well.

Faced with these facts we talked this situation over and I proposed to take his hunting partner to the Rabbit River and himself to what we call Burn-off Camp. There was a grizzly bear making life hard for one hunter and his guide and E. J. was the only one with a bear tag. In fact there were seven bears around that camp at that time, with one even chewing the front post of the cabin. The other reason is that there is in fact a cabin there is and would make life hopefully better for him. You know as well as I do what a tent and foul weather can do to a person in Northern British Columbia.

To make a long story short, a different guide took him out for a day and they stalked a grizzly bear. They never got it. Angus joined up with the group again after moving horses and camp and I believe they stalked another grizzly they didn't get. Last but not least they came yet about another one standing upright on the trail about 50 or 60 yards away. E. J. finally got a shot at him but never did kill it either. According to him his bullet must have hit a twig which is more than understandable considering the buck-brush in this country.

While E. J. was there and immediatley after, our hunters managed to harvest three goats, three caribou, four moose and one stone sheep out of Burn-off Camp within a period of two and a half weeks. Angus McDonald never quit his job and was reponsible to guide for two Austrain hunters who both shot a moose and a caribou each within seven days.

The fact that I really regret is that when all was said and done, E. J. and I were sitting in my office and I was trying to find a solution on how to have him come back next year without charge just to get him his game. He declined saying that he would never even consider to hunt with an outfit like this. I guess you know that already.

In closing, I would like to supply you with names, addresses and phone numbers of all people that were in camp with E. J. and trust that you will go through the trouble and contact them for clarification on this matter.
