ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Letter from Mr. Cintorino to Editor Barbara Crown, 1/23/2013

Dear Report,

I have been a subscriber for several years now and have never turned in a report.  However, with over fifty years of solid hunting in over twelve countries, I have my share of stories.  Yet I hate to be a complainer, so usually I just write it off as "that's hunting."  About myself, I have been an avid bowhunter all my life and I usually hunt one hundred days plus every year.  There is hardly ever a year I don't hunt whitetail deer, and I have hunted them in twenty states.

This letter is to complain about a deer hunt in November of 2011 with Jack Cassidy Outfitters out of Colorado.  During the 2011 SCI convention in Reno, my hunting partner, Jan Vanerhoef, and myself booked a five-day whitetail deer hunt with Jack out of Lamar, Colorado, down on the Arkansas River bottoms.  He sold this hunt to us as a never-hunted ranch except for four bowhunters a year on three thousand acres of bottom land surrounded by alpha fields and cow pastures.  Our lodging was supposed to be in a ranch bunk house with cook service, etc.  When I questioned him about hunt methods and the number of stands he had out there, I was told he had so many stands set up along the river bottom that he can no long find half of them.  He would have them all checked out prior to our hunt, and not to worry about it, the place is loaded with big deer and we will be there and the peak of the rut and have a great hunt.

On this particular hunt, we drove from Boise, ID and hunted for seven days in Kansas.  After our Kansas hunt, we drove to southeast Colorado where we were supposed to meet Jack in Las Animas at the fairgrounds.  When the meet was finally met, Jack was not there but one of his guides was.  At that time we were informed that we wouldn't be staying on the ranch but in town instead.  We figured no big deal, we could still handle that.  However when we arrived at the house, it was an old house where the owners' special needs son lived and never even knew anyone was going to be staying there until the day before.  There were four of us hunters and two guides and this son, all using the same one bathroom facility.  Again, my partner and I figured we could handle it, even though the World War II spring cots didn't sleep very well, if the hunt produced the deer Jack said it would.  The next day as were driven to our stands, we found out they only had six stands which were put out the day before we got there, and one of the guides even sat in one of them the first night they were put in.  Still, that was not the worst of it; there were no alpha fields that we could see.  There was a lot of cattle pasturing on over-grazed land where the rancher had to feed them daily from the feed truck.  Since Jack never met us and was never in camp, no one knew where the property boundaries were and we were told we had to hunt the strip of land on one side of the river only.  Long story short, everyone saw the same and only small 120-inch class buck numerous times and a few does.  After three and a half days, Jon and I couldn't handle it anymore and drove back to Boise.

This hunt was one of the most misrepresented hunts I have ever been on.  Nothing we were told was accurate, and I feel like we were severely taken advantage of with misinformation.  The reason I am so late in filing this report is that when reviewing the 2013 Colorado Outfitter Guide magazine, I came across a full page ad on page five of Jack Cassidy Outfitters, and it got me upset.  I think we should get a full refund or he should be made to produce what he said he had when he sold us this hunt.  Now I know this is not some high-lama expensive hunt and I have been on several of them also, but a man's word is what you end up buying a hunt on.

Your attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated.  We need to hold guides and outfitters up to the right expectations.  I will be sending in some other reports in the future.  Most will be good reports, however some will be as I see it, which is not always good.

Respectfully,
Pete Cintorino

Letter from Jack Cassidy to editor Barbara Crown, March 13, 2013:

To: Hunting Report

Subject: Hunting Report, Pete Cintorino

Thank you for sending me the hunting report filed by Mr. Cintorino on January 2013.  The hunt was taken almost two years ago in November of 2011.

I have been in the outfitting business for over 35 years and have taken hundreds of individuals hunting, and not all have taken game.  During this time I have tried to make all hunters happy.

The archery hunt that Mr. Cintorino was on on the Arkansas River bottom in eastern Colorado, this ranch/farm is about 5,000 acres along the river adjoining hay fields.  The blinds/stands have been in place for the last 5 years, with replacement prior to each hunt.

Housing is in a house, and yes, there is only one bathroom for 4 hunters.  Also TV, comfortable house.

The Whitetail rut was early and over prior to our hunt.  This made for poor hunting as the larger bucks had moved out.  The hunt would have been very good if I had scheduled it earlier in November.  The Whitetail rut in this area is very difficult to predict and we set hunt dates a year in advance.

I have NEVER had any feedback from Mr. Cintorino concerning this hunt.  It has been almost two years and now he writes a poor hunting report.  If a hunter who is unhappy would contact the outfitter directly, most times something can be worked out.

I am very sorry that Mr. Cintorino had an unpleasant hunt, I would have done what was needed to make adjustments, and can assure you we could have worked something out had he contacted me after his hunt.

The cots were steel beds with mattresses used by our soldiers for many years.

If the Hunting Report would require any unhappy hunters to contact the outfitter directly prior to publishing a report, in most cases the situation could be resolved for everyone's benefit.  The problem is that some hunters do not want the situation resolved, they just want to complain.

I will contact Mr. Cintorino concerning his report.

I can assure you I do not tell the hunters something that is not correct.  This property has produced many great Whitetails in the past.  If anyone reading this report would like to contact any of my previous hunters, I will be glad to supply a list of as many names as they want.

Again, thank you for sending me the report.

Sincerely,
Jack Cassidy

E-mail from Pete Cintorino to editor Barbara Crown, 3/18/2013:


DEAR SIR, I JUST GOT FINISHED RESUBSCRIBING TO THE HUNT REPORT WHOM I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER FOR MANY YEARS. HOWEVER I ALMOST DIDNT BECAUSE OF A LACK OF RESPONSE TO A LETTER OF COMPLAINT I FILED ON JACK CASSIDY OUTFITTERS A COUPLE MONTHS AGO. I ALSO SENT IN ANOTHER LETTER ABOUT A GREAT HUNT I HAD IN MONGOLIA A FEW YEARS BACK IN WHICH I NEVER GOT A RESPONSE. I HAVE A VERY POSITIVE REPORT TO MAKE ON A GREAT HUNT I HAD THIS PAST YEAR IN KANSAS WITH A RELATIVELY NEW OUTFITTER BUT HESITATE TO SPEND THE TIME IF I AM NOT TO GET A RESPONSE.
RESPECTFULLY, PETE CINTORINO

E-mail from Barbara Crown to Pete Cintorino, 3/18/2013:

Dear Pete,

First of all, thank you for deciding to renew your subscription and also for your email informing me directly of how you feel. I owe you an apology and take personal responsibility for your Jack Cassidy report not getting processed on a more timely basis. I'm sorry, and I will not offer any excuses for not having this done sooner.

I want you to know that I did send a copy of your complaint with a letter to Jack Cassidy earlier this month requesting a response from him. I know he received it, as he confirmed by email that he had. As you know from reading The Hunting Report, our policy is to provide both parties the opportunity to explain things from their points of view. We do this to be as fair and even-handed as possible, to practice balanced journalism and also to protect our subscribes and ourselves from possible law suits. We present both sides and allow readers to draw their own conclusions. Jack knows he has until mid April to send me his response. After that time, whether I have a response from him or not, your report will go in the queue to be aired in the newsletter and also will appear in our online database. I hope to have it appear in the May issue as I will be finalizing the April issue by the end of this week. Should I get a response from him in the next day or so, I will get it into this issue.

Regarding your Mongolia report. I have conducted a search and am unable to locate your letter. I would like to find it if it is in our system somewhere, not only to get it into our database for you but also to figure out where it fell through the cracks and plug the hole. Positive reports are supposed to go into an inbox which is emptied each month when we begin planning that next issue, and then goes to our data input person and proof reader to be uploaded at the end of the month when the issue goes to press. Do you remember how far back it was? I took over from Don in August 2008, so if it was after that, I'm hoping it is either in a hard copy or electronic file here in our offices. Do you remember if you sent the report by snail mail or email? Did you submit it online? I had to let go of the person who was previously in charge of processing these, and if I know how the report was filed, I may be able to track it down better and get it into our system. Again, I apologize for this screw up on our part.

As for your new Kansas report, please do send it. If you email it, send it directly to my email address Barbara@huntingreport.com. If you send my snail mail, send it to my attention. I will make sure it is processed properly. In fact, we are running an update on Kansas deer hunting in the April issue and your report would make a fantastic follow up report in May. So, YES, please send it. I will use in the newsletter.

Pete, I do not anticipate you having another problem but, if you ever have a difficulty or a question in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me immediately. If there is a problem I need to know so I can fix it. I am making changes to fix this report problem now and thank you for bringing it to my attention.

With much humility and appreciation for your continued support and understanding,

Barbara Crown

E-mail from Pete Cintorino to Barbara Crown, 3/19/2013:

Dear Barbara, Thank you for the very nice reply and of course your apology is accepted. As far as the report I mailed on Mongolia it was probably in 2006 or2007 since I went the first time in Nov 2004 and then again in April 2005. I missed what would have definitely been the new world record Altia Ibex with a bow on the first trip and couldn't sleep all winter thinking about him so I went back again in the spring. I didn't get the big one but did get a 42" Altia Ibex and a 34 " Gobi Ibex with my bow when I went back in the spring. I will try do send you a report in the next day or two on my hunt with Carney Creek outfitters. It will make for a good report.
Respectfully, Pete

E-mail from Barabara Crown to Pete Cintorino, 3/19/2013:

Pete,

Much appreciated. Ahhh! How we all have one of those videos of the lost "big one" playing in our heads! But that is part of hunting, is it not? I'm sorry your report was not handled back then. While I worked for Don at that time as his editor it was on a contract basis outside of the office and I have no idea what could have happened to it. I have tried looking through our old files, but I'm afraid it it lost. Regardless, you may wish to post the photos to our online Trophy Snapshots for posterity.

As for the Kansas report, I am anxious to see it and have already put it in our line up for May.

By the way, I sent you earlier a response from Jack Cassidy. Take a look and let me know if you have additional comments. It will run in the April issue going to press on Monday.

Warmest regards,

Barbara Crown

E-mail from Pete Cintorino to Barbara Crown, 3/21/2013:

Barbara, received your latest email and unfortunately have to say I didn't receive anything form you on Jack Cassidy's response other than he had not responded at the time of your first mail. With that being said I am going to give you a report on an
enjoyable whitetail hunt in Kansas this past fall. However first I would like to tell you a little about myself so you don't think I am some stranger or new comer to the hunting world.
I am sixty six years old and have been hunting since a child, for the past fifty years exclusively with a bow for big game. Usually I will hunt between fifty to 125 days a year and have hunted in over 13 different countries. In reality have probably booked in excess
of one hundred trips over the years with outfitters and guides. I am currently the #1 world record holder of a mountain caribou in both SCI and Pope an Young. Ok enough about me now to tell you about last years whitetail hunt.

In the past twenty years I have never missed a whitetail hunting season and I usually head for either Kansas or Iowa. Unfortunately the real trophy over 150" just has never presented itself for the shot for me so I am always as the saying goes looking for greener pasture
to harvest a big trophy whitetail. About mid winter of last year I contacted John Andres of shoeshone wilderness adventure team in Montana, and ask him for a good recommendation. He recommended Jerry Meacham of Carney Creek outfitters down in south central Kansas.
After speaking with Jerry a few times on the phone I could tell he was a man who took his business seriously and felt I could count on him for a good hunt. After the first conversation with Jerry I found out that guiding and outfitting are Jerry's full time occupation and works not just in Kansas but also Alaska and several other states. He is definitely a professional and a delight to hunt with always doing his best to get you your trophy. My partner Jon Vanderhoef and I flew into Tulsa OK. a couple days early and visited some other outfitters I had
hunted with over the years in that area. It is only about a hour drive from either Tulsa or Wichita to the main hunting cabin just out of Sedan Kansas. What a delight once we arrived the cabin itself. It was everything a hunter could dream of having in a hunting camp.
It is a real first class operation with many trophies on the walls and all done up in quality. Jerry told me he basically built the cabin him self over the years and you could tell he was proud of it by the way it is immaculately kept up. He had a few guides in camp and all were polite and knowledgeable. From what I could tell Jerry had over several thousand acres leased and over a hundred tree stands and blinds in place year round. Personally I didn't get the trophy I had wanted but did shoot a 130" class buck on the next to the last day. I am sure everyone understands ground shrinkage and this was one of those cases where you watched a buck from a distance chase off other bucks. Then all of a sudden he is in front of you and the arrow is released. However I am very happy with him although he was not the biggest buck I saw. My hunting partner Jon never did shoot a deer. He pasted on several waiting for that real trophy that never showed. This area of Jerry Meacham is an area of big bucks, it seems like every year Boone and Crocket deer are shot in this general vicinity. Carny Creek outfitters takes both rifle and archery hunters and has so much land that I don't think the animals get over hunted at all.
I can highly recommend this company, it was a pure delight compared to other hunts. Cost ranges between $3,500 and $4,000 plus tips depending on your arrangements. I have nothing negative to say other than five days are just not enough in my opinion if your hunting for a real trophy. However guys do it every year on five day hunts. Jerry can usually be reached at 907-723-2399 however there is always the possibility he out in the field somewhere guiding so his email is : jerycmeach@aol.com.
Hope everyone has a great year of hunting in 2013.
Pete Cintorino

Well Barbara that is my report feel free to change it around to suit your bulletin> I only wish I had started doing this with you several years ago. I have had so many rip off trips . Including a very expensive trip to Camroon where I shot Bongo, Forest sitatunga and a few different duikers all to have them lost and never returned to me back in 2004. Plus bad grizzly bear hunts, ETc. In the future I will be sure you get a report from me good or bad

---------------

E-mail from Barbara Crown to Pete Cintorino, 3/21/2013:

Pete,

Perhaps I hit the send button on my last email without attaching the letter from Cassidy. I have attached here. Sorry about that. Sometimes I work too fast for my own good!

Thank you for the report on Kansas. I am forwarding it to my managing editor Tim Jones to put together for a Kansas follow up in May. He may be in touch for additional details. Hope your 2013 season is a productive one!

Warm regards,

Barbara Crown

E-mail from Pete Cintorino to Barbara Crown, 3/23/2013:

Barbara, I read Jack Cassidy's reply and I have to admit he was right about a few things. Those beds must have been slept in during world war two since
i slept in much better beds in Vietnam in 1966. Next his hay fields which he described to us as alfalfa fields were over grazed prairie fields in which daily the farmer would drive out and feed a large some of cattle. To give you an idea it would usually take the rancher one to two hours every morning just to get enough feed out to feed the cattle. Plus if it was a hay field it was on the other side of the railroad tracks. His comment about the stands makes me laugh. Before booking I specifically asked him how many stands he had out and his exact reply was " I have so many stands out in that river bottom I can't even find half of them anymore. The only stands he had out when we were there was six that were put out be guides who were not experienced in whitetail hunting. Our guide told us he never hunted whitetail himself before this hunt.
well enough said let us see if he gets back to me. I know in my business I always check with the customer after we have finished our work to be sure they are happy and satisfied. He must have been told we had a bad hunt by his guides since we left a day and a half early. the guides knew situation a understood when we left. Jack is a honest looking smooth talking likable cowboy type guy and we took him for his word.
Thanks for your co-operation, Pete Cintorino

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I bought this hunt two years ago at the SCI Convention. Animals were as expected by explanation of the outfitter. Camp was as expected by explanation of the outfitter; small, but comfortable cabin heated with a propane heater, water in a container and camp stove to heat water; long drop "privy"; separate cabin served as the "mess", outfitter, guides and other client(s) either had or shared other similiar cabins. There are no "creature comforts" - camp was well stocked and organized, but clients should be prepared for a rustic type setting. Weather was cold (to freezing and below) at night, with clear skies during the day when it warmed up considerably so layering is a must. We traveled by four wheel drive pick-up, 4-wheelers or walking, all on private ground. While my hunt was not physically demanding you are in the mountains and should be physically able to walk/hike if necessary for your hunt to be successful.
