ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Late evening of the first day we flew in, Sam my guide walked over to the beach to do some last minute checking and there was a big bear lying watching our tent. Sam came back and got me and we watched him, eventually he got up and strolled over to the creek and out of sight. In Alaska you cant shoot until 3 am of the following day that you fly so we were approximately four hours short but still a good way to start off a hunt. Before I go further I must tell you about Sam Madrid. Hes the most ambitious knowledgeable guide you will ever want to meet. No sooner out of bed than checking the beaches and hills and last thing at night and during the day you would think his binoculars were glued to his face! Anyhow we had the coldest wettest spring Kelly or Sam had seen since the 70s. We had rain, snow sleet and winds up about 75 mph which kept us in the extremely well built tent with plenty of tie downs for two days. In spite of it all we saw bear every day, a sow in the process of driving her cub off, mating bears, a sow running down a hill and suddenly rolling and all sorts of antics. We made a long stalk on a big bore only to have him pull the disappearing act. We saw bears despite the weather. I dont shoot just anything much to the disappointment and anger of a different guide outfitter I had last year. I didnt shoot a bear due to anyones fault but my own. I have the very highest regards for both my guide Sam Madrid and my outfitter Kelly Vrem. In fact when Kelly flew in to get us on the 11th day of the 10 day hunt he suggested we stay the two more days until the end of the season, we already had broke camp and had it on the beach, he had us stay so we could hunt that day, flew out and then back in that evening to get us even though it made a second round trip for him. Quite a guy!

GAME DESCRIPTION
Major Game Animals Taken: Bear, Brown - Availability: Average - Trophy Size: 9 1/2 foot bear.
Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: I hunted with Kelly last year in April 2003 for 14 days. I saw 10-15 bears but none over 9 foot. Kelly was gracious enough to give me a price break to return this spring. This spring we saw 15 or more bear before spotting the big one on day ten. Kelly and Lu's crew worked hard to find me my bear. Scott Simmons and Terry Lawson were excellent guides. We would usually find one or more bears per day. But as always the true trophys are harder to find.

Three rifle hunters in the camp had an experience similar to mine.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
To: The Hunting Report From: Wes Vining of The Trophy Connection Re: Complaint registered by Mr. Nathan Andersohn Date: April 24, 2000

I'm writing this to respond to your letter concerning a complaint registered by Mr. Nathan Andersohn.

There is no question that Mr. Andersohn had a disappointing hunt for caribou. However, it is important to note that he booked at the very last moment and that Mr. Toby Griffith told him that this was the end of the season and that he should talk with the outfitter directly before booking. He did talk to the outfitter and the outfitter told him the situation and furthermore told him that it was not the best time for an archer. It is true the outfitter thought that he could he could get a caribou with the bow. The outfitter reduced the price of the hunt because of the time of year and the fact that Mr. Andersohn booked only three days before the hunt. As a matter of fact, Mr. Andersohn never paid us a penny as we had him talk to the outfitter and book directly, due largely to the fact that there wasn't time.

Now as far as follow-up, this is simply not true. Toby Griffith has followed-up, he left a phone message after the hunt, and when he received a letter of concern on January 4, 2000 his response was in the mail on January 6, 2000. See attached.

Thanks again for letting us respond to the report of a disappointed hunter. Sometimes I think we should open a meat market and forget about the aspects of hunting.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- NEW DOCUMENT ---------------------------------------------------------------------

To: Toby Griffith From: Nathan Andersohn Re: Caribou Hunt - Rough and Ready Guide Service Date: January 4, 2000

The caribou hunt you booked for me with Kelly Vrim was a total failure. It was obvious that booking a hunt in the last week of the season was not a good idea, as everyone was ready to shut down camp. While I enjoyed Kelly and my guide, I don't feel the best effort was made to get me into the caribou.

On the first day of the hunt I was taken to a spike camp seven miles from the main camp and told by Kelly that he would move me as soon as he located the main caribou herd. I found out later that he told the other camps the same thing. At the end of the week none of us had been moved and I had seen a total of 13 caribou. I only saw one mature bull, and he would not have even made the Pope & Young record book. The highlight of the trip was getting a 40-yard shot at a wolf and stalking a black bear.

I believe that at the time this hunt was booked the outfitter knew there was not many caribou in the area, as I only booked three days before I left. At the end of my seven-day hunt the weather had cleared, but no effort was made to extend our hunt.

I don't feel that you did a very good job of checking out the caribou populations in the area before I left, and I am obviously disappointed that more effort wasn't made to get me into the caribou. You should note that the three rifle hunters in the other camp didn't fare much better than I, with only one of them harvesting two immature bulls.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- NEW DOCUMENT --------------------------------------------------------------------- To: Nathan Andersohn From: Toby Griffith Re: Hunt with Rough and Ready Guide Service Date: January 6, 2000

In reference to your letter on January 6, 2000 regarding your caribou hunt with Rough & Ready Guide Service, owned and operated by Kelly Vrem, I am responding accordingly.

First, let me thank you for taking the time in providing me with a written report of your "failed" caribou hunt. I spoke with Kelly Vrem shortly after your hunt and he too was discouraged with the limited number of caribou in his guide area during your hunt. However, when the arrangements were made Kelly felt confident that even though a large portion of the 500,000 Mulchatna Herd had moved south, many of the caribou were beginning to move back into his area and he was positive the hunt would be a success. Based on this, having hunted with and knowing Kelly for many years, I too felt comfortable in recommending the hunt. In fact, if I recall both you and I have talked with his guide who had confirmed this movement. I'm not making excuses for Kelly or myself, but it sound like either the caribou didn't move far enough north or, within the short period between the booking and your arrival, they began moving back to the south. This can and will happen.

In any case, I am disappointed in the fact that Kelly did not move you to a different area to increase your opportunity of success. As I mentioned, I had hunted with Kelly a couple years ago and found his area and operation to be excellent in virtually all aspects. Moving clients to various camps to increase their opportunity of success has always been a strong selling point for Kelly. He has always made arrangements to do this, barring any major weather problems, so I don't know why he didn't move you and the other hunters. This question and why he couldn't extent the hunt will hopefully be answered when I see him in Reno for Safari Club International.

Nathan, I understand your disappointment and I apologize for making a decision which, at this time, appears to have been incorrect, however, if Kelly says the caribou are there and he is the person flying the area, knowing what is going on, I will make the same decision again. Please, if you have any questions or wish to discuss this in more detail with me or Kelly, give us a call. Until then, I wish you the very best during this New "2000" Year!

To: The Hunting Report From: Wes Vining of the Trophy Connection Re: Complaint registered by Mr. Nathan Andersohn

We see your report from Mr. Nathan Andersohn and would like to make a brief comment, but I think you got an earlier report from Mr. Toby Griffith.

At any rate, Mr. Andersohn booked this hunt with very brief notice, and in fact was told by Toby that this was late for an archery hunt (Sept. 26th start) and that the season was to close, I believe on the 30th, so he would have only a few days to hunt. He was advised of all this but still wanted to go because these were the only dates that fit his schedule.

Mr. Vrem also explained the situation to the client.

We do know that the client was disappointed in not seeing more caribou, but he is not being fair to this outfitter, since we all explained the situation to him.
