ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Flight from Phoenix to Hermosillo was overloaded with freight. Baggage was left behind, including guns. Sent on next flight to another airport about 120 kilometers away. Hunters had to be driven to other airport to claim guns and baggage. Reason given was military would not release firearms to anyone but the owner who was in possession of the firearms import permit. About five hours was lost accomplishing this. This was the only glitch in the adventure.
