ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Enclosed is my report on my hunt last November with Giuseppe Carrizosa. Because of the success of the hunt, I thought it appropriate to supplement the report with this letter with the thought that what I experienced may be of value to your subscribers contemplating a similar hunt.

Selecting Giuseppe was a somewhat complicated process. A friend of mine, Bruce Brock, from LeMars, Iowa, has for many years been one of the auctioneers at the Safari Club annual meeting. About a year ago I asked Bruce to look into ibex hunting outfitters in Spain at the next convention and give me his opinion. Bruce sent me materials on three outfitters. I contacted all three and checked their references. One of Giuseppe's references was a fellow I have known for a number of years - a very experienced hunter. He had nothing but superlatives for the quality of Giuseppe's service.

I booked the hunt in February 2004 and began the process of obtaining a permit to import my rifle into Spain. I worked through the Spanish Consulate in Chicago (I have listed all address and phone numbers at the end). The information I received from the Consulate stated they wanted the original of my passport. I tired to convince them a certified copy would suffice but had no success. To support my application for the permit I sent the Consulate 1. Original passport, 2. Copy of my Iowa permit to carry a concealed weapon, 3. Copy of Iowa hunting license, and, 4. Copy of AFT Form F 4473 issued at time of purchase to prove ownership of the rifle. Price was $21.75 US, US Postal Money Order. I sent the materials by UPS overnight mail, enclosing a prepaid envelope for the return by UPS overnight mail. I received the permit back in three days.

No useful purpose would be served to chronicle the efforts I made to be certain I would have no problem in transporting the rifle with ammunition locked inside the gun case to Spain. Suffice to say I arrived very early for the flight and eventually satisfied Northwest Airlines and the TSA the rifle and ammunition were properly shipped in the same locked container. Though not required, I also put a lock on the trigger. The flight via Northwest and Continental was uneventful. On the Continental flight from Newark to Madrid I flew business class, and though expensive I thought it worth the price.

On arrival at Madrid airport, Giusepppe met me while I was waiting for my luggage. We then went to a window where I exchanged dollars for Euros. I wanted to use an ATM machine, but Giuseppe said there were none in the airport. When the rifle case and luggage arrived, we went to the office of the Guardia Civil, where I presented my rife permit and passport. The first thing I noticed about the office was a portrait of the King on the wall, because when I was last in Spain the only portrait I saw was one of General Franco. The personnel at the office knew Giuseppe, and the process took but a few minutes.

We went to Giuseppe's house where we transferred my rifle from heavy shipping case to a soft case and left for Calahonda on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, which would be our headquarters for the hunt for Southeast Ibex. We stayed in a not too elegant hotel, Hotel El Ancla, but it was clean and adequate to our needs. The restaurant was a different story - just superb. I say with confidence, let Giuseppe order the food. We had just an excellent meal, with different fresh fish from the Mediterranean coast, and far more food than I could eat.

Before booking the hunt I explained to Giuseppe that I had injured my right knee and despite surgery and two years of rehab, I could not run. In fact I could not walk very fast. I had no difficulty climbing, but was very slow in descending. He assured me this disability could be accommodated, and that certainly proved to be the fact. Nevertheless, until the last trophy was taken, my problem (plus my age) was a concern to me.

Before hunting for the Southeast ibex, I told Giuseppe, I wanted to fire my rifle a couple times to make sure it was still correct. I explained to him for the first time in my life I had shot (100 yards) a 3-shot group from a bench with the rifle that I could cover with a dime - never happened before and will never probably happen again. A target was set up on a hill above where we were parked with the Landcruiser, about 135 yards distance. For the first time in my life I fired a rifle using the hood of a car for a rest. The results were not good. Giuseppe fired the rifle as did one of the guides, and they then began, to my silent consternation, adjusting the scope and doing a "bore-sight". I tried to keep track of the clickes they were doing, but finally gave up. In all events I finally shot the rifle again and the result was found to be good enough. When we left the "range", my self-confidence in my ability to shoot the rifle was very low. I had told Giuseppe that the rifle was sighted in 2.5 inches high at 100 yards, and I had taped to my stock a ballistics chart showing trajectory to ranges out to 400 yards, just in case my Alzheimer's hit me at a bad time. Giuseppe said the 2.5 inches at 100 yards was too high, but obviously I did not argue with him.

We agreed that I would not hunt with a round in the chamber, but Giuseppe would tell me when to chamber a round and give me the range. I brought a rangefinder, but he said I did not need to carry is since he would have his. I also brought a wind gauge, but Giuseppe said I would not need it. We drove on some rough roads, usually with one-way traffic. We left the road and drove cross county were we parked. The ibex was sighted, and Giuseppe suggested using the hood of the vehicle as a rest with the rifle supported by the pack. I asked the range and I thought he said "80 yards". I could tell by the animal in the scope that it was over 80 so I held for 150. The bullet struck the right rear and exited the left front of the ibex. The game warden with us and Giuseppe said the animal was hit, and they heard the bullet strike. We waited about 5 minutes and then walked to where the Ibex had been shot. The animal measure "gold" on the SCI standard. The game warden found him about 3 yards from where he had been hit. I asked the game warden what he thought the range had been, and he said about 165 yards. I teased Giuseppe that his "80 yards" was nuts, and he said "I told you 180". My hearing is not the best and I had inserted earplugs, so I am sure I did not hear correctly.

We drove to Granada where we stayed at an excellent hotel, the Alhambra. Again, the staff all seemed to know Giuseppe and we were treated extremely well.

At the hotel I was able to use the ATM machine and obtain more Euros. We had tried an ATM machine in a small town and none of my cards would work. The exchange rate on the ATM machines was the best I received - even better than the MasterCard. A suggestion-if you plan to use ATM card or credit card overseas, the issuers prefer to be notified in advance to assure they will not block the transactions. I learned this by pure accident, but I had no trouble using any credit card or ATM card, save for the problem in the small town. I was told in Madrid that if you check with your bank before departure they can tell you if your card will not work in certain ATMs overseas.

We left Granada early the next day and drove West to an area near the town of Villanueva. We met the game warden and drove into the mountains. We stopped and glassed. We saw different herds of male ibex with their females. Suddenly Giuseppe pointed out an ibex on the horizon that he said would probably run "gold". He explained that if the ibex went over the other side of the mountain, we could not shoot it. The climb would have been about two hours, and I did not think it worth the effort. We drove on and stopped when the game warded sighted some other ibex. Then we saw one that looked good further down and drove on to find a place where we could turn around and drove a distance down the mountain. We dropped the car, walked up the road for around 100 yards, stopped and saw the ibex. Giuseppe said he was not a "gold", but would measure silver or bronze. Giuseppe gave me the range of 130 yards. I fired and missed, Giuseppe said I had shot over, but I'm 95% certain I shot low. The shot was from a very steep angle shooting downhill. The ibex did not know where the shot had come from and continued to walk slowly up the mountain. I shot a second time and the animal went down. I reloaded and shot again, and all I heard was Giuseppe shouting, "Stop shooting - he's dead." I explained I shot because the ibex was still moving, and Giuseppe said he was only rolling down the mountain. It took us sometime to climb down to the ibex. He had been hit twice - both shots would have been fatal. He scored "Bronze", just short of silver.

The most difficult part of the hunt was climbing up the mountain from where the Ronda had been shot.

We returned to Granada for a victory celebration - two ibex in two days, both taken before noon. An old man's dream.

Since I had several days of hunting remaining, we discussed what to do. Giuseppet suggested I consider hunting for Mouflon and I told him I would think it over. The next day I toured the Alhambra, which is a tour not to be missed. Quite an impressive structure.

Giuseppe was suffering from a horrible cold. Bad cough, and as he said his cigarettes did not help. I told Giuseppe I did not want to push my luck. I had a marvelous hunt, beyond any realistic expectations and was satisfied with what we had done. I explained I would like to have his office change my reservation for the flight home to three days ealier, and I would then spend the planned three days sightseeing in Madrid. Unfortunately, Continental was going to charge me $200-300 to change the reservation and would only put me in tourist class with no refund for the difference between business class and tourist. I decided I would just spend more time in Spain, and leave as scheduled.

We returned to Madrid, and I stayed at Giuseppe's home Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights. Giuseppe arranged a guide for me (at Giuseppe's expense, to take me to the Escorial and the "Valley of the Fallen". The guide we had at the Escorial was amazing. He could have taught European History at any college. The next day we went to Segovia to see the Roman aqueduct, the Cathedral, and the Alcazar. On our return we stopped for a late lunch in Torrecaballeros (Segovias) at a restaurant called la Portada del Mediodia. The specialty was pork in the form of a small pig, about 20 days old, which had only had milk for nourishment. They call it suckling pig "cochinillo". It was truly delicious.

In Madrid I again saw the Prado, though on a Sunday and it was crowded. A caution, on Monday almost all the museums are closed. I went to the Royal Palace on Monday, which was open and well worth the time.

A word about rifles and ammunition. I used a new Winchester Custom made 7mm. Rem. Mag., way more gun than needed, but a gift from my wife and I had to use it. The scope used was a Leupold Vari-X 1.5 X 5 X 50 illuminated reticle. The ammunition was handloaded, new Winchester cases, IMR-4350-58.8. Fed. RL Mag-match Primer, and 160gr Nosler Partition. As Giuseppe said, a 270 with a 130 grain would be plenty. All three rounds of the 7mm exited the animal.

When it came time to settle up the financial score, I told Giuseppe I wanted to pay extra to compensate for the loss he would take on the decline of the value of the US dollar. He absolutely refused, reciting that his contract was in dollars, and he would stand by the contract - without variation. The closest we came to an argument is when I insisted in fairness he was entitled to an increase, and he remained adamant. Finally, I told him I had endorsed the cashier's check to his order and would not take it home. He then took the check, with a little more grumbling, but with sincere appreciation. Giuseppe told me that 2004 was the busiest year they had ever had, but with the decline of the dollar, it would not be the best he ever had at all. He also said I was the only US hunter that took into account the decline of the dollar in settlement. I was sorry to hear that because I think all of us dealing with outfitters have to understand that notwithstanding the language of the contract, a loss of the kind taken by outfitters caused by the dollar decline is a loss the hunter should bear in part. My total payment to Giuseppe was $18,215.00 + 16% VAT: US $21,129.40, of which $US 13,800 + 16% VAT: US $16,008 was trophy fees for the two ibex. The total did not include my supplemental payment to compensate for the decline in value of the $US. The airfare from Sioux City, Iowa, to Madrid, roundtrip was $1,535. I spent about $1,300 for hotel, meals, tips, etc. when I was not with Giuseppe.

It is obvious few have the good fortune to enjoy the result I had on this hunt. Giuseppe is organized to the extreme. An e-mail to him is answered within 24 hours, even if he is out of town and the initial response is by his secretary. In the field, his people, including the game warden, are on time. We never waited for anyone at any time. The pre-hunt scouting, which I could tell is the key of the success in Giuseppe's operation, was outstanding. We knew in a general vicinity where the animals were, and for me such was a real plus with my bad knee. In all, the hunt was extraordinary and is recommended without reservation.
