ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
DHURUPUTJPI- Honest to Gawd! That's the airport/hunting camp in never-never land. Everybody knows the location. Just travel to the back-of-beyond, take a hard left, and stop at the first water buffalo.

Our Australian safari was confirmed in December after the usual fooferah of letters, phone calls and faxes.

Took-off from LAX on May 16th and finally arrived in Amhemland, Northern Territory on May 20th. (Don't forget: you lose a day.) Flying time was 22 hours 35 minutes.

NOTE: from LAX through Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin and return, not once were we asked for permits or licenses for the rifle. (A brand new SAKO .375 H and H Magnum.) The rifle case was first opened in "buffalo" camp while getting ready to go out amongst them. Figure that!?

The topography of our hunting area: dead flat, streams and rivers all over the place, scattered trees up to 50 feet tall. Some straight stretches of streams, later identified as roads. Weather dry and fairly comfortable. Heat in afternoon. Pleasant evenings.

Went scouting on the first afternoon with Mark Sergeant an excellent guide. What a mess! Roads flooded, the Land Cruiser required frequent debogging. Much time spent winching from tree-to-tree. My hunting partner, our Godson Christian Douglas, reckoned we pulled ourselves out of the muck and mire at least 40 times.

Running slipshod, through the cowshed wasn't much easier. Fell flat on my face several times, which didn't further my reputation as the dauntless, fearsome "Great Hunter."

At the end of three days we encountered just three buffalos, all non-trophy, and things were looking pretty bleak for Black! I was going to stay in camp for a day, but changed my mind. THANK GOODNESS!

On the fourth day we left camp in the early morning. Christian and Mark went scouting.

Christian took a buffalo, after wounding and then tracking him down. To recover his trophy we all went fifty yards across a swamp, shoulder deep water and mud with possible resident crocodiles. That adventure alone made the whole trip worthwhile! A fine, representative trophy, and we all worked like hell to put him on the wall for Christian.

Anyway, back through the swamps and loaded into the Jeep (The Land Cruiser gave up the ghost yesterday.) Spotted a good bull in early afternoon. Mark and I went tracking and shot him a half hour later. Another good spread with a beautiful hide. Will make a great shoulder mount. I'm out of walls in our house, so may have to hang him from the ceiling.

Drove back to camp in 2 1/2 hours, which shows distance and difficulty in getting around.

Changed camps the next day, Smith's Point on the Cobourg Peninsula. The vista was much the same, without the Niagara of Buffalo Camp. We called it the BANTENG CAMP, and you could drive 1/4 mile, at least, without getting stuck in the mud! Out early and took a good banteng (a brother to the Asian Gaur) in less than two hours. Easy walking and tracking -- Hurrah! Called it a day, sent for the plane and back in Darwin by late afternoon. Home the next day.

All in all it was a great hunt. Personnel in both camps had fine attitudes. Facilities were more than adequate. Food was first class. And, of course, how can you argue with success?

This type of safari is really geared for the dedicated hunter. Hunt Australia, Ltd. did their job, as promised.

It may be my Swan song for Safari hunting. However, there is a place called Cameroon, with a magnificent Bongo waiting there.

We may have an appointment in Saniara!

Basic cost of safari was $20,000. Trophy fees and charter plane were $10,000.

Good hunt. Helluva long way away no matter where you start from. Slogging around gets old very quickly.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
To: The Hunting Report From: Bob Penfold of Hunt Australia Date: July 7, 1999 Re: Rex Baker's hunt

Thank you for the Rex Baker Hunt Report and the opportunity to reply.

In 1997, I arranged to take over 100 hunters in 1999. Maximum number of hunters was planned to be four per camp with four guides, five Toyotas and a cook. In March 1999, everything was in place and every vehicle was serviced and all camps set up ready to go.

By this time, we had a record rainfall in the wet season of 1997. This record was exceeded by a new record rainfall in the 1998 wet season, and again, a new rainfall record was set in the 1999 wet season. Still we were OK. But then disaster struck, with 80 inches of rain in two weeks in late April, totally flooding our buffalo camp, and washing most of our equipment away and totally drowning our hunting car fleet under six feet of flood water.

As the flood receded, the rush was on to totally rebuild our camp, strip down and totally rebuild our Toyotas, fly fuel and food in (three hours flight one way), and totally restock the camp again.

We had extreme difficulty in getting our clients 100 percent kill on record book buffalo, with horrendous hunting conditions. However, due to the hard work and skill of my guide team, we managed it.

At the time that Rex Baker landed in the banteng camp, we had had a low-pressure weather system over Cobourg Peninsula, making banteng hunting extremely difficult. We had had no hunting success with the four hunters in camp for four days, but fortunately managed five big banteng bulls in just two days after the weather depression passed, relieving the hunting pressure quite a bit.

Rex did lose one hunting day on his arrival, but did get a big banteng bull on his first hunting day, and proceeded down to my culling camp, (where I had 15 people in camp including clients, guides and staff). Rex had a couple of days donkey shooting, where he shot with some of his hunting friends who were hunting in that camp with me at that time. He was not charged for these hunting days. That seemed to be a pretty fair deal to me.

What else can I say? How would you handle 80 inches of rain at the start of your hunting season? Just give up, or ask your clients to work with us, and show a bit of patience, and they did.

For your further information, I have two other complaints from the 76 successful hunters we have guided so far in 1999. It is drying out now and we are back to hunting in normal circumstances.

Normally we start hunting in May and June, the "dry" season, when the country is dried out and the grass mostly burned off. July and August would have been better hunting in 1999, and ironically, most of our hunters, have already been and gone. What will the weather do in 2000? No one can predict or control that.

Thank again for the opportunity to explain our situation.

To: The Hunting Report From: Rex Baker Date: July 13, 1999 Re: Banteng hunt with Hunt Australia in May 1999

I would like to confirm that I did not mean for my hunt report sent June 14, 1999 to be construed as a negative report.

Many hunters were attending a conservation function in Australia in early June and a lot of us took the opportunity to do some hunting. I was aware that I was hunting banteng before the "best time." Add to that the abnormal rainfall and the result is a lot of high grass.

Yes, there were too many hunters in camp. The good news is I am friends with all of them. I lost two days of hunting, but I still got my banteng.

Per your question as to would I recommend this hunt to a friend, the answer is still yes.

To: The Hunting Report From: Bert Klineburger of International Hunting Consultants Date: July 12, 1999 Re: Rex Baker's report

Thanks for your letter and a copy of Rex Baker's hunting report. Also thanks for your chance to hear our reply.

Everything Rex Baker (a good friend, and the most active hunter in the world today) said is true. The Shikar Safari Club International had its convention May 30 to June 6, 1999, at Port Douglas, Australia. Many members wanted to hunt, going that far, so we booked them with Hunt Australia, a company that we had used with fine success over the years.

It was early. We always suggest hunters go after mid June to mid September. Also, there was 80 inches (yes, 80 inches) of rain that even today, in July, is still causing problems. All camps and much equipment was damaged and had to be rebuilt. Getting around was very difficult.

In some cases the outfitter did, at times, over-crowd some camps. This made for some complaints from others, just like Rex Baker. We had many hunters booked for the period two weeks before and two weeks after, and I expect you might receive other complaints from some of those. If you do, I suggest you put this letter with all the complaints.

I can say that most hunters "rolled with the punches" and came away very successful. Most, like Baker, got their game and some very fine trophies were taken. Some said everything was great. Others reported about like Baker, but some complaints were worse.

From a booking agent's standpoint, if I had it to do over, I would have told everybody, "You arrange your own hunts!" I talked with every hunter (and spent a week with many of them at the convention) and we are all still friends.

Too bad the weather and everything else was not perfect. But, in 50 years of hunting all over the world, I have found everything is not always perfect.
