SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: There were no problems on this hunt.
Highlights of Hunt: Achieved personal quest to use only open sights (no scope) on my vintage John Rigby (London) .375 H&H. Wife made the stalks. Shooting a lion after stalking on foot on the open plains of Moyowosi "the old fashioned way" with no bait or blind. All Cape buffalo kills were one shot. Surprised a large male lion and his buddy on a kill behind a termite mound while we were using it for advantage in a buffalo stalk, really close stuff.
Equipment Recommendations: Goggles and ear plugs for the hours on the safari truck between stalks. Mosi Guard insect repellent works against tsetse flies. Good walking boots. Salad-suit jacket for stalks on buffalo herds. Satellite phone.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? Every aspect of this hunt was well beyond our expectations. This company just keeps getting better, especially the cooking. This was the dream safari with a great professional - Andy Payne - and a great support staff from Houston, to Arusha, to the camps at Fish Eagle and Sidai. Bravo for TGTS.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
It is impossible to overstate the level of professionlism and service that this company and the PH, Andy Payne, and the field staff provided for my wife and me on this safari. We have had some tough experiences over the years, with poor professional hunters, etc. with other outfits, but never with Legendary Adventures, Tanzania Game Trackers Safari or Andy Payne. I mean I have had two airplane crashes and dead people on two hunts over the years, so I am "seasoned". When you find the right combination, stick with it and work with them to make it even better. There was an incredible improvement in the food service from our first safari with this group in 2007, which was the only suggestion for improvement we made after that safari. These folks listen and care. How rare is that? Get out there and hunt Africa while we still can.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
There were eight of us on the hunt. Three hunters, two bird hunters and three observers.

It was a great hunt with all the game my sons wanted. The observers took a lot of pictures. Father Houlahan and I who have shot birds all over the world for 40 years rank this one of the best. The base camp in Arusha where we stayed from start to end was unbelieveably luxurious and even had a spa.

The professional hunters worked their butts off to get my sons trophy game and were great company.

The airplanes, vehicles and rifles were new and the best quality. The camps were very comfortable with great food and wine. The tents were in-suite. The location of the camps in Maswa were by a stream where elephants and other game visited daily.

While they changed camps our PH's took us to Ngorongoro Crater for two days which was spectacular.

On my wife's 80th birthday the camp staff sang happy birthday in Swahili and danced. She will never forget it.

The Friedkins who own the safari company work hard for conservation. They have even established a conservation foundation and this is evident in their safari companies which observe the best practices.

The Friedkins safari companies are the best of the best and they are to be congratulated for the time, effort and money it takes to accomplish this.

We had the hunt of a lifetime.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
If you want an African hunt that's different try Monduli for buffalo. This is a physical hunt at about 5,000 to 8,000 feet, air is at a premium and the buffalo are mobile. We hunted hard for three days trying to pattern the herds. This is complicated by the thick porini. The pillar wood trees are massive and harbor old mans beards and leopard ferns as thick as the forest floor. The lichens store all the moisture they can hold and are found on almost all trees. It reminds one of the old growth spruce forests of our northwest. The forest floor is entwined with lions paw and of course stinging nettle. Ants in all sizes and shapes some more aggressive than others will awaken you from your inattention very quickly. I started noticing when the tracker started moving fast up front it was time for me to do the same. More than once I dropped my pants to remove ants as well as pepper ticks. On the fourth day of our hunt we needed a break and my finger was getting the uncontrollable itch to shoot something. Doug made a plan to head for the lowlands for a quick Zebra stalk. As is usual everyone knew this but the Zebra, these things were wild! After a couple of stalks we got to within 200 meters of a fine stallion leading his ladies away from us ASAP. He made a fatal error in stopping to look back and allowing me to take a rest on a tree. I held the crosshairs on the top of his back and let a round go. He made a death run of about a hundred meters and folded. I made a lucky shot right through the heart, my longest shot ever with my .375. The next morning caught us face to face with a herd before daylight. The fog was thick and the air was cool. Doug picked a fine bull with good bosses and enough mass to get everyone's attention. I took a shot at 50 meters and much to our dismay he and the entire herd took off. As I had two tags for buff Doug made the right call to go after our second buff. We made a short walk to the Monduli crater and as we topped the rim Doug set the sticks and said here he comes. To this point I had not seen or heard a thing but I learned early in this hunt if this guy told you to do something do it and do it fast. I had barely gotten my gun on the sticks when an old dugga boy came across the crater floor headed for a cane thicket you'd never get him out of. After nixing my last shot I concentrated on the job at hand and I don't know who was more surprised when he folded - the guys with me, the buff or me. But he did not take another step. One insurance shot to the spine when we got to the bull and he was ours. Now we went back to the first buff and found blood but it was obvious I had made a bad shot. This is the first time I have ever shot an animal in Africa and not gotten it. I was sick!! Once the family was picked up we got our photos we started pacing to go to a much warmer climate. My daughter is twelve. She my wife and my nephew went on this safari. That morning they had gone to a Massi market. One of the tribesmen asked my wife how many cattle would it take to buy my daughter. She told him millions and millions, he shrugged his shoulders and said he couldn't afford her but asked if he could buy the jewelry on her teeth. They had never seen anyone in braces. This is the second hunt the family has gone on, their first to Africa. I won't go again without asking if they want to go. TGTS and Doug McNeil are a great combination. Doug is one of the most dedicated PH's I have had the pleasure to hunt behind. One day when the wildebeest were not allowing us within 300 meters Doug made a plan to get in a herd of cattle and follow them where they went. Within 30 minutes we had a bearded wildebeest on the ground, a very good one at that. I do not like being demoted to an observer but for me this was the last shot of our hunt. The next day we headed for Ngorongoro Crater. What an experience. No trip to Tanzania would be complete without a trip to the crater. A tar road goes to within twenty miles of the crater making this a lot shorter drive time from Arusha. We saw all the big five except leopard. We saw lions mating, rhino, elephants within twenty meters and huge buffalo were the highlights. The lodge and accommodations were first class. I cannot say enough about Adam Woodhams, camp manager and arranger of family trips. My daughter came back knowing more about the flora and fauna than most hunters. My hat is off to Adam. Doug McNeil is a man of patience, even when his hunter is on all fours throwing up; he is planning how to overcome any barriers to his hunters' success. I will always remember this trip as one of my best ever, not judged in animals harvested but all that goes into the hunt before and after the shot. TGTS has first class equipment and backup for all circumstances. I will be back to hunt with Doug, Lord willing.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This three-week classic tented Tanzanian safari by a top-shelf company (Wengert Windrose, now owned by Tanzania Game Trackers) was to be a general bag hunt for west Tanzanian game in the Moyowosi region, with a focus on certain game such as lion. Unfortunately, it came up short--I did not take any trophy quality game that I was looking for. Other than bait, I took an 8" Bohor reedbuck, a modest waterbuck (26" green), a warthog (11"x9") and a good topi (the most numerous plains game in the area). I passed on a sable (38" [green], a beautiful animal but a bit shy of trophy quality in my book) and a good oribi (a small antelope species). In my opinion, this safari was a bust--a waste of time and money. The outfitter attributes this primarily to drought and bad luck. I was hunting for good lion, buffalo, leopard, sable, roan, waterbuck, topi and sitatunga, amongst other things. We definitely had a focus: lion, and we spent a good deal of time on it. But, if you have hunted for lion before, you know that you will spend a substantial amount of time baiting and checking baits... so you troll the hunting grounds extensively, which should mean that you will come across other game. We trolled the entire concession, but we saw very little game at all other than at the eastern boundary swamp area. We saw a lot of buffalo (see below), topi, zebra, and bohor, but that was about it. What did I see in three weeks? Buffalo: about 5 herds of 50-250 heads, plus a couple of small groups. 37-39" were the largest mature males, but even then, it was a low odds proposition to take the biggest bull from a herd in the middle of a burned-out swamp with no cover for stalking (I was holding out for 41-42" at a minimum). Sable: two herds, one with the bull I wrote about above, and the other with a bull of 35". Roan: one herd with an immature 24" bull that was difficult to distinguish from the largest female in the group, and two or three youngsters that we saw elsewhere in the concession. Leopard: a few hit bait, and one returned when we were sitting in the blind just after dusk (sex unknown). However, leopard hunting was compromised by the pursuit of lion, so we not only left a bait that had been hit but not hunted thoroughly, but we also sat on a bait that had been hit but had also simultaneously been hit by a female lion (substantially reducing the chance that the leopard would return). Sitatunga: did not hunt them for many days b/c of lion focus and general hunting conditions, but in the five morning/afternoon sessions spent hunting them, we heard two individuals sneak near the blind, but we never actually saw one, male or female. Waterbuck: one small herd with a small male, one couple with the male being 26" (shot it), one small herd of young males, and a 2 or 3 small female herds with young males. Hartebeest: one female, one group of three running (not evaluated). Bushbuck: abundant in an area near the sitatunga fly camp; shot at and missed a modest specimen through thick brush (hit 5 branches b/4 reaching where he stood--should have known better). Lion: in the first 14 days of the hunt, we saw a pair of females and one male who was about 5 years old and would be very good... in few years. Two females (perhaps the ones we saw) hit baits. In total, we set nine lion baits. I never heard a lion roar. In the last week we uncovered a pride of six immature males, and a couple of females working together. Great video, close-up, but the price of admission was a bit steep compared to game parks even though the outcome was the same--photos. On the last day, saw one additional immature male. As of the 2003 season TGT/Wengert share my philosophy on lion: shoot only good, mature males. I suggest that a hunter document the TGT/Wengert success ratio in writing. I fear that the odds are not very good. To the best of my recollection, that's it. It would be wrong to complain that you don't get any one particular species--that's hunting. But to strike out on the entire dance card--that's absurd. In my opinion, there simply wasn't much game in the area, and what was there was poor. To be fair, I had a VERY good hunt with this outfitter in a different concession last year (see Hunt Report I.D. #3092). The camps and vehicles were in very good shape, and the staff and food were good (possible lack of tracking skills, though). In general, the infrastructure is top notch, except for the roads. On this score, it is a failing grade in my opinion. I can only compare to my seven weeks in the Masai and Selous. Wengert apparently plows the roads once at the beginning of each season, and this rough, hard-pan is what you will drive on. It beats the hell out of you much of the time, and this is unnecessary. There were times that it was so bad, and so slow going, that I considered getting out of the truck and walking. I am well aware that we were in the bush, but the roads could have used a little more TLC. Bad roads wear you down and make each day harder, and by comparison, my other Tanzania safaris were on virtual interstate highways which allow you to cover more ground and see more game (if it is there!). Excluding international airfare, this experience cost me about $57,000--quite a lot for such a pitiful outcome. Fortunately, I bought the hunt a year ago--today, it would cost you around $65,000 I believe (and probably $15,000 more if you had a successful hunt). As for the fees, everything worked out in the wash, but there was an unnecessary dispute over some of the "extras" fees: I was prepared to pay the price schedule published at the time of booking less than a year ago, but later the outfitter raised the trophy fee schedule on cats which they expected me to simply pay. As it was, I didn't shoot a cat, so this had no impact (lucky me!). However, they initially billed me for the charter fee from the old schedule, which was about $2,000 more, but I objected to the "outfitter pick and choose" pricing, and they ultimately agreed to allow me to pay the lower published charter fee. A client should confirm with them at the time of booking what they will charge for the extras such as charters and trophy fees, in clear and explicit writing. With respect to the trophy fee increases for cats, government tax increases were not the issue to the best of my knowledge. Do not allow arbitrary, unilateral price increases after booking and paying a deposit--You are then contractually bound, and the outfitter should be as well. In the end, the outfitter agreed to my concerns over the price confusion, and I am satisfied in this respect. However, I am disappointed that they did not offer any concessions whatsoever, even if it was just a goodwill gesture. No offer to come back and hunt with them at a discount; no offer to move me to a better concession before or during the hunt; no offer to waive the wasted bait trophy fees. They chalked it all up to drought and "bad luck." They spoke of the bad luck as if it were shared by them, but the fact is that I bore 100% of the bad luck and paid my bill in full, and that was that.

Date: January 9, 2004 To: The Hunting Report From: Mr. Charl Beukes (General Manager) RE: Wengert Windrose Safaris

Dear Hunting Report, The negative report submitted by Mr. Ellis addresses his personal expectations and disappointment relative to his hunt in Moyowosi. Unfortunately, this report, read in isolation excludes the numerous very successful safaris enjoyed by other hunters in the Moyowosi hunting block in previous years and during 2003. Wengert Windrose Safaris offers outstanding outfitting and guiding together with a selection of the finest free range hunting blocks in Africa. The hunting strategy practiced by WWS is clearly focused on managing the habitat and wildlife in order to ensure long term sustainable resource utilization. It was unfortunate that of all the lions seen by Mr. Ellis none were considered of trophy quality. Our objective is to collect trophies which the hunter can be proud of and the collecting of these trophies must in no way have a detrimental impact on the sustainability of the resource. Mr. Ellis was hunting in Moyowosi in order to collect his prime trophies, namely lion and sitatunga. Other areas were available but the P. hunter and the outfitter determined that although drought had caused a lot of game to move out of the area, Mr. Ellis still had a good chance of collecting his trophies. We talked to the PH frequently while on safari with Mr. Ellis. Although they did not shoot a lot, they were seeing good signs of lion and the PH felt they had a good chance of collecting a good trophy lion which was his main priority animal. For this reason it was determined that changing areas would cost time and possibly not increase Mr. Ellis's chances of success. Mr. Ellis is questioning the outfitters decision relative to placing him in a particular area for his priority species. After careful review of Mr. Ellis's priorities we are confident that we acted entirely in the clients interests. The same hunt undertaken by a different client and reported to The Hunting Report would in all probability have expressed disappointment in not having collected his prime species but no disappointment at having had a bad and costly experience. Our prime goal is to provide our clients with an outstanding hunting experience in truly wilderness areas. The management of these areas and outfitting to an exemplary standard is very costly and should not be compared to ranch style hunts or canned hunts where trophies are guaranteed. Reports submitted to The Hunting Report are published verbatim and in many cases do not address other issues which can have an influence on the success of a safari. This is no reflection on the "Hunting Report"; we believe that the Hunting Report is a useful forum for exposing bad practices in our industry. We do feel however that some client hunt reports downgrade an outfitter, agent or PH unfairly due to limited experience and lack of sufficient knowledge of the local operating conditions and/or hunting environment. Hunting success is not guaranteed, it is however directly related to the quality of the outfitting, hunting conditions, guiding and most importantly to the physical ability and determination of the hunter. Many hunters submit reports which within the industry are known to be totally unreliable and misleading. It is not uncommon to read reports claiming that; "the PH was the best in Africa" or "the area was the best? etc." but what framework does the hunter use to make these judgments? Clients have different levels of experience, personalities, attitudes, physical abilities and shooting skills, all aspects that determine the outcome of a safari and the trophies obtained. In the case of Mr. Ellis, he had been on two very successful safaris in Tanzania but in different hunting blocks and with different priorities. In the Natron block his PH was Martin Nel outfitted by WWS as was the case in Moyowosi. Moyowosi has a reputation for outstanding lion trophies and excellent sitatunga which can be substantiated by our trophy records. Based on our experience and knowledge of the area we feel that Mr. Ellis was placed in the right hunting block with exceptional support in terms of communications, supplies, transport etc. at no time did we feel we had made a bad decision. Had hunting conditions not been adversely affected due to very day conditions we have no doubt that Mr. Ellis would in all likelihood have collected his trophies. Sitatunga is an even more specialized hunt than lion due to it being habitat specific and in most instances requiring quality time in order to obtain a good trophy. Both Mr. Ellis's priority trophies are considered specialized trophies and seriously influenced our decision to hunt Mr. Ellis in Moyowosi. A good number of male lions were seen during the safari although in our opinion these lions were still to young to qualify as trophies. Many outfitters and PH's would consider them collectible trophies but careful research and management indicates that lions need to be of a certain age and older before they should be harvested. We have photographs of the lion seen during the safari and also photographs of all lions taken during the 2003 season. We are proud of our results. WWS upgraded all camps and hunting cars prior to the opening of the 2003 season. In addition many of the roads have been re-aligned to limit soil erosion and to act as firebreaks in sensitive areas. The roads in Moyowosi will never be as good as those in Natron, the terrain is very different and it is virtually impossible to build a high quality road network in a block extending to three million acres. In addition we feel that roads in wilderness areas should in no way be permanent or impact the appearance of the area, our road building is therefore restricted to tractors, mowers and ploughs. We are confident that our roads are more than adequate and in no way detrimental to the safari experience or restrict access to prime hunting areas. Mr. Ellis feels that his safari was costly and unproductive. WWS provides the best support and infrastructure available in Africa and at no time did Mr. Ellis experience a lapse in this service or a lack of determination on the part of his PH to achieve Mr. Ellis's objectives. Conditions and animal movement can change due to climatic conditions, uncontrolled burns, unseasonable rains etc., very often creating challenges to the hunter operating in free roaming wilderness areas. Hunting conditions are however beyond our control and in the case of Mr. Ellis unfortunately resulted in a less than productive safari. For this we are truly sorry and if Mr. Ellis would like to hunt with us again we will bend over backwards to make his next hunt a success. WWS management understand that certain safaris do not meet the expectations of the client and in all cases where the cause can be attributed to mismanagement on the part of WWS, concessions will be offered. WWS hunting blocks are rated as classic wilderness, supporting the largest and most varied collection of big game species found anywhere in Africa. The very nature of wilderness areas and totally free ranging animals can at times provide an over abundance of migratory species and at other times it can be extremely difficult to collect a reasonable bag of good trophies. Hunting safaris in the modern day are expensive; some clients feel that once they have paid for the hunt they have bought the right to shoot the animals they want. This might be true in areas that are not free ranging or where you buy a "canned lion" in the countries that allows such practices. However, when a client pays for a safari in a free roaming area the only right he or she has purchased is the right to hunt. Finally to summarize. Mr. Ellis by his own confession admits that Wengert Windrose did everything within their power to make sure that his safari was conducted in a professional manner availing to him the best chances to obtain his prime trophies. The issues Mr. Ellis discusses in length as being his main concerns are acts of nature and unfortunate although we try to cater for all outcomes there is nothing we can do about that. Moyowosi Game Reserves reputation has been documented may times before both on film and on paper, I am sure the Hunting Report has many such positive reports re this exceptional area. Anyone who has hunted free range lions seriously in Africa before will know how restrictive it really can be. Baits are obviously set up in areas where the PH feels his best chance will be to obtain his trophy and these areas sometimes are unfortunately not the same as some areas where other species occur and thus by hunting lions, as rightly mentioned by Mr. Ellis entails checking these baits daily which would obviously not allow anyone time to drive and hunt in other areas. Most trophies taken are shot incidentally while checking baits. Moyowosi is part of the Ram Star Wetlands area in Western Tanzania. Over two thirds of the area is flood plains or swamps. During normal rains these areas flood and with the annual migration of hippo, elephant and buffalo through this area and over the roads massive damage is done to them. We harrow all the roads every year to improve them otherwise they would be impassable. Other than constructing gravel highways at an exorbitant price (impractical) this is the best way to open our hunting roads and I must emphasize HUNTING ROADS. The hunting success achieved by WWS during 2003 is outstanding, please feel free to call for a 2003 newsletter which shows the quality of trophies collected or view our website: www.legendaryadventures.com Our newsletter can be obtained by calling: Legendary Adventures, Inc., 10777 Westheimer, Suite 1060, Houston, TX 77042; Tel: 713-580-7100 and Fax: 713-580-7110

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
To: The Hunting Report From: Julian Hutton of Tanzania Game Trackers Date: 12-15-98 Re: Mr. Raj Paul

Firstly please let me introduce myself. I am in the process of taking over as General Manager of Tanzania Game Tracker Safaris from Tom Schovsbo.

Thank you for your letter to our Houston office dated December 8, 1998. Not having been personally involved with Mr. Paul's safari I am obviously at a slight disadvantage, however I have reviewed all the correspondence and spoken to those involved from our side, and am confident that I am now in a position to be able to answer Mr. Paul's comments in your Hunt Report Form.

As we would be with any client, we are extremely sorry that Mr. Paul wasn't totally happy with the safari that we organized for him. However, Mr. Paul's very serious allegations are without substance and would seem to indicate a misconception on Mr. Paul's behalf of how the hunting safaris we operate are conducted. Mr. Paul's comments do not come as complete surprise as he made a number of complaints following his safari. Although he doesn't specify all of these complaints on the Hunt Report Form, I believe a full understanding of the circumstances leading up to his comments will enable you to make a fair assessment of all the facts. As such please find below the text of Mr. Paul's letter to us dated September 14, 1998 and our comments on this and his allegations in the Hunt Report Form:

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

To: Tanzania Game Trackers From: Raj Paul Date: September 14, 1998 Re: Hunt with Tanzania Game Trackers

I feel I should inform you as to how bitterly disappointed I was with my recent safari with your company. As you are aware, I bought the buffalo hunt you had donated to the Houston Safari Club in Feb. 97 and upgraded to include other species and additional days.

Upon my return from Tanzania, I looked over the donation papers and they did indeed specify the hunt to be conducted in the Selous area. However the auctioneer never announced it as such. Furthermore, I was told by your Houston staff that the Selous boasts the biggest buffalo in Africa - on the contrary, the Selous has mediocre buffalo at best, something that is well known to TGTS. I'm also finding out your company donated a hunt in the Selous as it's a hunting block you have trouble selling. I ask you, is that any way to run a business - you can't sell an area so you donate it, get your write off, and then make some unsuspecting fool think its your finest buffalo safari? I was mislead, knowingly and willfully and that is fraud!

When I met with Ms. Sonier to talk about upgrading the package, I informed her I wanted to get a lion. Since I did not have an interest in a leopard, I was advised to upgrade to 16 days. I was specifically told that unless I wanted two cats, a 21 day hunt was pointless. Upon arriving in Tanzania, I realized that several species I was interested in were available only on a 21 day safari. Yes, your brochure does indeed say that if one reads the small print but I made the mistake of relying upon the word of your staff who I assumed knew what they were talking about. Your brochure is not necessarily correct either, as we found out about the Hippo license.

As for trophy lion, the Selous area is a joke for that - you people know that the chances of getting a good maned lion are slim and none but yet you took my money and sent me there. TGTS also knew this was my 8th safari so I'm not an inexperienced hunter but I was sent there anyways. Did you really think I would say that since I've already taken a black maned lion in Loliondo, I would therefore be willing to settle for a mane - less beast in the Selous? I understand fully well that there are no guarantees in hunting but there has to be at least a decent chance for success. When I book any hunt, I ask what the outfitters success rate is and its usually 80% + for one to book a hunt. I would be curious to know what your success rate is in the Selous for a good mane lion if I was to subpoena your company records, which I am prepared to do if push comes to shove. That could also reveal whether or not you have the biggest buffalo!

Your camp, equipment, food and staff were outstanding - no complaints there at all. I'm still wondering why I was told to take cold weather gear to the Selous - perhaps I was sent a generic equipment list which is somewhat contrary to the individual attention TGTS claims it provides each client.

I bought this hunt to support my club as I have bought other donated hunts for the same reason. I upgrade to support the outfitter so that they may recuperate their cost and show a profit as well. This hunt cost me almost $50,000 which represented many years of hard work and saving for a dream hunt with one of the best known outfitters in the business. I now feel that dream became a nightmare having realized that I bought a hunt from you in an area you have trouble selling anything out of - essentially, this was something you dumped for the donation good will and write off. I was deliberately misled from day one by TGTS. Again I know there are no guarantees in hunting but there are laws and repercussions against deliberate misrepresentation of the facts. I will provide you with the courtesy of a response before I take any further action in this matter.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- NEW DOCUMENT --------------------------------------------------------------------- To: The Hunting Report From: Tom Schoubo Date: October 7, 1998 Re: Raj S. Paul's Negative Hunt Report

My comments:

1. AUCTIONED HUNT

At the request of the Houston Safari Club, in February 1997 Tanzania Game Tracker Safaris donated a seven day hunt in the Selous Game Reserve. In the printed program of that event it was very clear that the hunt was in the Selous Game Reserve. As we donated this it was our choice of which area to conduct the hunt in and we made this decision based on what areas we had available, and not because it was "a hunting block you have trouble selling".

We obviously had no control over what the auctioneer may, or may not, have said and do not think that we can held responsible if Mr. Paul failed to adequately determine what it was that he was bidding for. The hunt was specifically for the Selous Game Reserve. Nothing else was ever implied.

2. BUFFALO IN THE SELOUS

Mr. Paul says that Susan Sonier of our Houston office told him that "the Selous boasts the biggest buffalo in Africa". Ms. Sonier worked for our company for 22 years. During this time she was acknowledged as one of the most knowledgeable Tanzanian safari specialists in the United States and handled many hundreds of satisfied hunting clients to our areas. What reason does Mr. Paul think that Ms. Sonier would have in misleading him? Certainly not to make him buy one of our safaris as we had already given it away for free to support the Houston Safari Club. Without a recording of the conversation between Mr. Paul and Ms. Sonier it is obviously now impossible to determine exactly what was said. Ms. Sonier is certain that she never made such a statement. Given her length of time in the business, the professionalism for which she was well known, the fact that she wasn't trying to sell anything and that to make such a statement would have served no purpose, we strongly believe the balance must naturally rest in her favor. Nobody who had handled as many safaris to Tanzania as Ms. Sonier had, would claim that the Selous has the "biggest buffalo in Africa".

3. OTHER SPECIES

A license to hunt lion is issued on a 16 day permit. As Mr. Paul indicated to Ms. Sonier, he was interested in hunting a lion and Ms. Sonier told him he would be able to do this on a 16 day permit. What species are available on what permit are all clearly indicated in our brochure. What clients want to hunt is obviously a crucial part of the success of their safari and so to maintain that we put this in "the fine print" simply isn't true, as any reading of our brochure will prove. In fact it has an entire page to itself. In our "Quota/trophy priority form" Mr. Paul was asked to indicate what were his priority species. He returned this and indicated his first priority was lion, followed in order by buffalo, spotted hyena, crocodile and hippopotamus.

At this time all of the species he indicated he wanted to hunt were available on a 16 day license. Had Ms. Sonier tried to persuade Mr. Paul to upgrade his safari to a 21 day permit when all he required was a 16 day then he might have had reason to complain. But she did not. She sold him the correct permit for the type of game he wanted to take. I am at a loss as to why Mr. Paul believes this is ground for complaint.

Subsequent to the printing of our brochure the Tanzanian Game Department, without notice to us, changed their policy on hippopotamus and it became necessary to have a 21 day permit in order to shoot one. When we realized this we obtained a 21 day permit at our own expense, in order to allow Mr. Paul to shoot a hippopotamus. It is not uncommon for the Game Department to make policy changes without notice and, as in this case, we do everything to make sure the client is inconvenienced as little as possible.

4. TROPHY LION

The Professional Hunter, Charl Beukes, reports that Mr. Paul arrived with night vision equipment. Not only is this completely at odds with the principles of "Fair Chase" in which we conduct all of our safaris, hunting at night is also against the laws of Tanzania. Charl Beukes made this very clear to Mr. Paul and told him that under no circumstances would he be permitted to hunt for lion at night, with or without the use of night viewing equipment. As this was Mr. Paul's 8th African safari I am surprised that he was not aware of this.

It is a fact that this year there have been fewer lions throughout all areas of Tanzania. It is not yet clear what the reason for this is, whether it is a temporary natural cycle, or as a result of the abnormal weather conditions from El Nino or a longer term. However in order to help preserve lion stocks, with effect from the 1998 season TGTS has taken the step of only allowing lions to be shot in our areas with a 21 day permit. We naturally honored Mr. Paul's booking for a lion on a 16 day permit because he had made his booking before we made this change in policy.

There is sometimes a misconception that large lion are concentrated together in certain areas. For example we sometimes shoot our biggest lion in areas where few lion have been taken in the past. Likewise poorer specimens are sometimes found in areas which in the previous year have yielded the largest lion. It simply isn't true to say there are no trophy quality lion in the Selous, there have been many mature, good sized trophy lions taken out of there. Shortly after Mr. Paul departed the area a very good lion was seen and long black mane hair was recovered from a bait. We are sorry that Mr. Paul did not see any on his safari, but that does not mean that there weren't any there. Surely a large part of the thrill of hunting is that there are never any guarantees?

Mr. Paul says he only hunts with an operator that has over an 80% success rate. Any operator who claims that a client has over an 80 percent success rate is either shooting immature animals, operating very few safaris or hunting at night with lights or night vision equipment. As you know, no assumptions can be made on the certainty of shooting an animal as success is due to many diverse factors such as the weather, source of food, mortality rates etc. We never make any such assumptions and had Mr. Paul indicated that this was the criterion he uses for booking a safari we would have refunded his money rather than sell him a safari.

Mr. Paul, of his own volition, left the safari early. Had he stayed for the full duration of the hunt he would obviously have improved his chances of taking a lion. Before leaving he voiced his dissatisfaction and in at attempt, without prejudice, to mollify him we agreed to give him a refund amounting to almost $10,000. This is a substantial amount of money that in no way was we obliged to give him.

5. CONCLUSION

I hope that the above makes clear the facts behind Mr. Paul's complaints. We believe these allegations to be totally without substance. As Mr. Paul himself acknowledges, the TGTS "camp, equipment, food and staff were outstanding - no complaints there at all". The root of the problem seems to be that Mr. Paul didn't shoot the trophies he wanted. We are a service industry and the satisfaction of our clients is naturally foremost, and as such we wish that all our clients could return with the trophies they came for. However the extent to which this happens is governed by the vagaries of nature and not by any safari operator. Mr. Paul bought a buffalo hunt in the Selous and then added a lion hunt to it. This we provided, with one of our best Professional Hunters, and the high quality camp and staff for which we are well known. We are extremely sorry that Mr. Paul was unhappy with this safari but are confident that Tanzania Game Tracker Safaris acted with the highest professionalism and integrity throughout.
