Why? In eight trips this is one of the best outfitters we have been with. Extremely dedicated, caring, and knowledgeable. Keeps his help and camps year around most of the staff has been with him for several years and are very loyal. Saw many elephants but were not hunting them this time, but just wait until next year. Jumbo also took an 80# this year. Extremely personable person.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
While we noticed the difficulties in the country at no time did we feel unsafe or uncomfortable (wife was along) the triangle area was somewhat isolated in that the sugarcane fields and sugarcane company kept many employed. Jumbo is a lifelong resident. This was my fourth try for cats (leopard) and the first one successful. Jumbo had many cancellations from fearful people and we were able to take advantage of one to obtain the lion. This guy actually does things the way you think they should be done.
