ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Problems of hunt:

Driving one and a half hours round trip to pick up game scout who had a camp of about 30 people in prime elephant area by Luvuvhu River. Staying in a photo camp instead of a normal hunting camp, not told about in advance. I was told it was Wayne Wagner's Safari camp, which I assumed was a hunting camp just for hunters. Had 16 people digging up the old war fence on the Limpopa River in one spot then a pick up truck with a torch cutting off the railroad rails imbedded in a five foot square concrete block they used as fence poles then a large flatbed truck picking up the railroad rails in another spot. Also a crew of 12 people spraying for alien plants and digging up plants from the year 2000 flood. The army also had a crew in there training in a jeep driving around. And then we had the hard road going thru the middle of the area for the tourist. Last of all we had the photo camp people setting up at least two new camps on the Luvuvhu River, surveying and driving around sightseeing right where the jumbo elephants should cross into our area. They had about 10 cars and trucks at one camp and five or six at the other camp. And we had a few poachers in the area but that is normal for Africa. Across the Luvuvhu River we had a very large construction tractor putting in a new road, also where the elephant should cross. This is not the hunt I expected or quality that I feel should have been there. When I asked Wayne Wagner about this he said, "I have no control over it". The actual area too hunt was too small. Looking at the map it looks big but when you take out dried up areas with no food the game park people area and the hard road etc, the good area can be covered in half a day. Maybe if the trophy fee was not prepaid we might have gotten a lot more cooperation in moving out the people and getting a bigger area to hunt. Prepaying the fee leaves you with no bargaining power.

The park is shutting down all hunting October 30, 2003 because the photo camp people do not want hunters in their area. This was the second to last hunt in Kruger National Park.

Highlights of hunt:

The constant thought that maybe a one hundred plus pound elephant will cross over into our area, they are there. Seeing elephant bulls sleeping on their side (five or six). Constant cow elephant fake charges; a bull in must following the jeep and wanting to smash us. Lots of game to see with many trophy nyala. Wayne Wagner, Gavin Godfrey and Ian Brown working to their limits to find a big bull. I did pass on shooting a small bull in the last hour of the hunt.

Notes for the Hunting Report for Hunters Contract Agreement:

Never ever prepay a trophy fee as the people have no incentive to solve any problems that come up and you will lose. If the outfitter is sure of getting what you want they don't need you to prepay.

Also we need something spelling out the type of camp. (Can be a short description).

We need something more than "I have no control over it". We need to have the right to cancel a hunt if the outfitter can't supply a quality hunt whatever the reason. Why is it only our responsibility to accept problems? Can't the outfitter be responsible for his area or have knowledge of conditions ahead of time and inform the client in writing, as verbals don't get it.

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

Date: January 8, 2004 To: The Hunting Report From: Makuleke CPA RE: Critical Hunt Report by Felix Widlacki

I am writing this letter on behalf of the Makuleke Communal property Association (MCPA) in response to a complaint received from certain Mr. Felix Widlacki through our hunting outfitter Mr. Wayne Wagner Safaris. I have read Mr. Widlacki's report and our response is as follows:

Firstly, we would like to apologize to Mr. Widlacki for any inconveniences caused to him by certain activities that were taking place in the Makuleke area during his October safari.

The Makuleke area is jointly managed by members of the MCPA and members of the South African National Parks Board who obviously manage the Kruger National Park, onto which the Makuleke area borders. The Makuleke area was formerly a part of the Kruger Park.

Mr. Widlacki complained about read construction south of the Livubu River. Unfortunately, that area is not belonging to the MCPA and we have no control or knowledge as to when or what activities take place in the National Park. These reads are constructed and maintained by private companies on contract and activities cannot simply be halted.

With regards to Mr. Widlacki's complaints about activities within the hunting area, we must apologize to Mr. Wayne Wager for not notifying him of such activities. The main camp is anti-poaching base camp, the rangers performing anti-poaching patrols and their section ranger live there. With neighbors such as Mozambique and Zimbabwe you can appreciate the need for these people in the hunting area. We must emphasize that we do not believe that such activities had any influence on Mr. Widlacki's chances of success. There are activities that take place daily in the Makuleke area and in the KNP. All the animals, especially elephants are extremely accustomed on vehicles, noise and human activity. There is no way that any of these activities would have influenced the outcome of Mr. Widlacki's safaris.

In conclusion, we admit that we did not inform our hunting outfitter Mr. Wayne Wagner of these activities. When we were confronted about these activities at the beginning of Mr. Widlacki's safari by Mr. Wayne Wagner there was nothing that we could do to stop such activities. Again, we do not believe that any of the activities mentioned by Mr. Widlacki, (even the non-routine activities i.e. fence removal and surveying) would have affected the movement of elephants in and out of the area.

Please accept our humble apologies for any inconveniences caused by such activities.

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

Date: February 24, 2004 To: The Hunting Report From: Wayne Wagner Safaris RE: Critical Hunt Report from Felix Widlacki

Thank you for the opportunity to respond to the problems that Mr. Widlacki experienced on his elephant safari in the Makuleke region during October 2003.

I would firstly like to urge you to publish anything about this report in the context that Mr. Widlacki's report was written. I am sure that Mr. Widlacki will confirm having said to me "that he had a good safari, he would hunt with me again, but that he was unhappy with certain activities that were taking place in the hunting area."

Unfortunately, your reports cause outfitters an enormous amount of negative press in the hunting world, regardless of who is right or wrong.

As an introduction I would like to make a point of how Mr. Widlacki and myself came to be on safari together. At the 2003 SCI convention in Reno, I was marketing elephants in the Makuleke region of the Kruger National Park. As you know quotas in this region are very small an during 2002 I had shot a big elephant - 93 x 76 pounds and another of 74 x 72 pounds. This caused a lot of conversation and hype about the prospect of doing the same during 2003. Gavin Godfrey, a PH who does most of his hunting in Botswana and some in RSA, came and spoke to me regarding and elephant in the Makuleke area for a client of his. We discussed the details of the safari (costs, accommodation, area, PH's, etc). Gavin Godfrey said that he would speak to his client and if he was interested he would bring him by to look at photos, maps of the area and to introduce him to me. Later that day Gavin returned with Mr. Widlacki and we started to discuss a possible safari.

Mr. Widlacki, Gavin and myself discussed the details of the safari was well as the potential of taking a big tusker, the size of the area (looked at a map of the area) and the accommodations - I showed them photos of the camp that we could stay at while on the safari. The main point that we discussed was the payment of the trophy fee regardless of whether we took a big elephant or not. I explained to Mr. Widlacki that this was because I was bound contractually by the Makuleke community to pay for the elephants even if we did not manage to find big ones or even shoot one. Mr. Widlacki thought that this was unusual as it was not the way it worked in Botswana.

Gavin Godfrey and I agreed that as Mr. Widlacki was his client he would set up the safari and let me know what was going on. I did not hear from Mr. Widlacki again until a week before his safari was due to start. Mr. Widlacki left a message on my answering service expressing his concern about connecting flights from Johannesburg International to the hunting area and mentioned that he did not know what was going on. At one point I spoke with Mr. Widlacki on the phone and told him that I also did not know what was happening and that Gavin Godfrey was supposed to have made the arrangements. Mr. Widlacki had not heard anything from Gavin Godfrey. I tried to call Gavin but could not get hold of him. I then called a friend of Gavin's and told him that they needed to call Mr. Widlacki urgently as he was concerned about the arrangements. I did not hear from Mr. Widlacki again until he arrived at the hunting camp with Gavin Godfrey.

Mr. Widlacki is a client of Gavin Godfrey's who acted as an agent. Gavin negotiated the costs, terms and everything about the hunt with Mr. Widlacki.

Regardless of the above, there were certain activities that took place in the Makuleke area that I was not informed about and Mr. Widlacki has every right to be disappointed. However these were certainly not the reason that Mr. Widlacki failed to take a good elephant. A week after Mr. Widlacki's safari, under exactly the same circumstances we took a 76 x 74 pounder and a 57 x 54 pounder with clients. Elephant hunting is one of the activities that cannot be forced no matter how bad we would like to get a big tusker. A report saying that we took a 100-pounder is obviously more beneficial to everybody and we do our best to get them.

Certain activities that Mr. Widlacki reported as problems were normal daily activities, i.e. anti-poaching. There were no army crews busy with training, these were in fact anti-poaching scouts on their way to be dropped off at different points to go out on patrols.

The most important facts that I would like to establish with this report is that pre-paying the trophy fee was not the reason the activities could not be stopped and that we did everything possible to get Mr. Widlacki a big elephant. The final point that I would like to emphasize is the fact that pre-paying of a trophy fee is not dictated by myself but is implemented by the Makuleke community. I would like to change this and agree with Mr. Widlacki that it is unfair towards the client.

The Makuleke area has produced some excellent elephant trophies during 2001, 2002 and 2003. Unfortunately on Mr. Widlacki's safari this was not the case. Nobody will ever know exactly why, was it bad luck, drought conditions, activities in the area or was it simply just not meant to be? As I mentioned before, we shot two very good, elephant bulls a week after Mr. Widlacki's safari.

I hope that this sheds some light on Mr. Widlacki's problems with regard to his safari. From my side I regret the unknown activities in the Makuleke area but there was truly nothing that could be done about it.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Date: December 6, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: Robert Johnson RE: Wayne Wagner Safaris Complaint

I have followed all of the Wagner Safaris hunting reports since the opening of their Makuleke Kruger concession. In fact, a friend of mine hunted with Wayne on one of his first buffalo hunts. He killed a spectacular bull. After reading the August hunting report, I filled out a questionnaire from the Wagner Safaris web page asking specific questions regarding Wayne's Makuleke Kruger's concession cost, length of hunt, best time of year, average size of buffalo, and permits available). I was very specific about my desire to hunt on Wayne's Makuleke Kruger concession. On Aug 16, I received this email: AI Lammert wrote:

Sir, One of our concessions is in the northern province of South Africa. ... comprising over 1 million acres of unfenced land the borders are several of the major rivers, including some of the Kruger National Park. Trophy cape (40+ inches) hunting in this area is $12,000 usd all-inclusive with the exception of airfare to and from Phalaborwa, RSA. This would be about another $2,000usd from Seattle.

We actually do have one permit left in this area at this time, and is available if you could travel) this fall. I am anticipating a $2,000 to $3,000 price increase for the year 2003 hunting season. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions. Al Lammert

After I received this email, I called Al Lammert (Wayne's business partner/ relative) and talked at length about Wayne's Makuleke Kruger concession... I told AI that I wanted to hunt buffalo in the 43" to 45" class. That's why I was interested in hunting Wayne's Makuleke Kruger concession in fall 2002 spring of 2003. Al assured me Wayne was killing buffalo well into the mid 40s and there was always a chance at a monster. I told Al I was willing to walk the entire 24,000 hectares of the Makuleke concession, and I would sleep in the field, in order to get a chance at a true trophy buffalo. Al warned me that hunting later than mid September could make it much harder to shoot a buffalo of this size, because the upcoming rains would limit visibility to a few yards. I told Al I was very interested and wanted book this hunt & I could hunt anytime after Sept. 11. Al told me he would immediately emai Wayne and call him in the morning (South Africa time) and go over the hunt.

On Aug.18. I called Wayne and asked if he had received the email from AI. He said he had and he then read the emails back to me. Wayne told me he had offered his last Makuleke Kruger buffalo permit to another PH and he had to make sure he hadn't sold the hunt, before he could commit the permit to me. He told me he would tell me in two hours if he could get the permit back.

Wayne called me back in an hour and a half and said he had "A" buffalo permit. I was elated; we were over the proposed hunt (the size of buffalo, type of shells to bring, etc.). Wayne told me he had a "plains game" hunt booked around the same time frame. However, he would arrange for me to start my hunt with his PH. Iam Brown. When Wayne finished with his "plains game" hunts, he would, if needed, hunt with me for the remainder of my buffalo hunt. Wayne assured me that lam was a good PH and he knew Waynes hunting area well. In order to give me the best chance of success, we agreed I should extend my 7-day hunt by paying for two additional days at Wayne's big game daily rate. I agreed to this arrangement and sent a deposit on the Aug. 16 to Al Lammert. (Wayne's business partner)

On Aug. 19, I emailed and called Wayne, to confim my airline itinerary. Wayne gave me Lam's cell phone number and said he would pick me up at the Phalaborwa Airport on Sept. 11.

9-1-02 After not having received any paper work or emails from Al or Wayne, I emailed Wayne; I wanted to know how everything was going and to emphasize to him how important this hunt was to me. The following is my email:

Wayne, I picked up 2 boxes of Remington 375 300 gr. a-frame shells and 2 boxes of Remington 270 130 gr. shells. If you would like I would more than happy to buy you some more shells to pay you back for using your rifle. If there is anything I can get for some of your staff please tell me their likes & sizes.

Wayne I would like to emphasize the reason I booked this hunt with you is the chance to shoot a true trophy Buffalo in your Kruger concession. I can shoot 4 Buffalo ( 36"-41") on a 14 day hunt in the Selous for the same amount of money but this is not what I am after. I am 42 years old and am in good shape. I am willing to walk 24 hours a day, sleep in the dirt & eat carrion if that is what it takes to get a chance at a big bull. This is truly a once in a lifetime hunt for me. (I am not a rich man & my wife will kill me if I even think about spending this much money again) I know nothing is guarantied when it comes to hunting. In fact the last two guided hunting trips I went on I didn't kill anything. But I went home happy because I hunted in good areas with great guides who tried their best. This is all I ever ask for.

Can't wait to be in South Africa, Robert Johnson

When I arrived in Phalorwa, I was picked up by lam Brown as prearranged. On the drive to Hodspr lam infonned me that we were not going to be hunting on Wayne's Makuleke concession but not to worry because Wayne said the area we where going to hunt was as good as or better than the Makuleke concession. I could not believe what I was being told. I just sat there in shock. I finally told me when I booked this hunt I specifically requested to hunt on Wayne's Makuleke concession. I never once talked to anyone about hunting anywhere else!

The next morning lam & I drove to the hunting area. lam told me he had never been to the hunt area. Which was quite obvious, since he had the directions written on a piece of paper! (So much for knowing the area well)

When we arrived at the gate of the hunting concession I was introduced to yet another outfitter. At that point I learned my hunt had been subcontracted out thru a completely different hunting organization.

That evening I talked to the area outfitter, I told him about my troubles, and how I had planned to hunt 9 days on Wayne's Kruger concession for a trophy buffalo in the 43"- 46"range. The area PH was very sympathetic; he told me he would try as hard as he could. But the best buffalo I could honestly expect would be a bull in the 40"- 42"range. His last 3 buffalo hunters all shot bulls under 40" He also informed me he would only be able to guide me for three or four days. After that he would need to leave for a day or two to check up on two other hunting parties of his own. (This meant I needed to shoot a buffalo in the next 3 or 4 days). On the third day of the hunt we came across a bull 39"- 40". Even though the buffalo was nowhere near the size of buffalo I had planed on hunting. The area PH said the bull was as good of a bull as I could expect. Both PHs agreed, I shot it, and it was in fact the largest of 4 buffalo he shot that year in the area.

After the buffalo hunt, I shot a large warthog & 26" nyala in a different area. At the end my hunt, we drove back to the ranch house where I met Wayne for the first time. He said he was sorry about the "mix up", however there was no real attempt to discuss how this hunt was booked. He took approximately $1,200 off my bill. At this point, arguing about the hunt was a total waste of time. I paid my bill and asked Iam to take me to the airport.

I specifically asked and paid to hunt on the Makuleke Kruger concession. Only Wayne knows why the area was changed

Wayne told me his PH Iam Brown knew the hunt area well. When in fact he had never hunted or even seen the hunt area! Wayne never told me he subcontracted my hunt out to a different safari service in a totally different area. He was in fact just a middle man! If I had booked directly with the area PH I would have saved, at least $4,000.

I never received a written contract, was this an afford to keep me informed or uninformed?

The concession I ended up hunting is under some sort of native claims. All of the lodges and outpost building on the concession have been looted; all that is left of the buildings are the walls. (We did stay in the last remaining tent camp, which was very nice) Poaching (snaring) by the people living in and around the concession has decimated all of the plains game. I saw a dozen impala, one small warthog & a doe bushbuck in all the time I was there. The big 5 animals have fared better and there are in fact several hundred buffalo in the concession. During my entire buffalo hunt we saw one bull that was though to be 41" The reason I mention this, is to point out this area is by no means as a premium concession and in no way can it be described 'as good" or better" than the Makuleke concession.

No matter how highly trusted or recommended this outfitter was. I should never paid a deposit on this hunt, without getting a contract in witting, with a complete summary of the proposed hunt. Detailing a Ranches and Concessions by their Legal names & All PHs involved. Hunting contracts are for the client's protection. In South Africa it is against the law to conduct a hunt with out one.

I let the excitement of the up coming hunt cloud my better judgment. Thus forgetting Outfitting is business and if allowed, decisions can be made that aren't necessarily in the clien's best interests. I can only hope this report well help someone in the future from making the same mistakes I did.

Date: January 14, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: Wayne Wagner Safaris RE: Complaint from Robert Johnson

Regretfully I write a letter of this nature to your Hunting Report. I would rather be reporting a 105-pound elephant that I had hunted, but unfortunately no such luck. With referral to your fax dated 30th December 2002 herewith the following:

For simplicity I will go through your fax in page order and pass comment on certain issues as I received them from you. I will start with Page 1 - 'Hunting Trip Report Form"

Area/Concession: listed as Makuleke Kruger Concession - this information is incorrect. Robert Johnson hunted in three (3) different concessions namely Letaba Ranch (buffalo) and the warthog. grey duiker and nyala were hunted on two (2) other concessions.

Comment on availability of game are his opinion. I do not agree, but fair enough." Generel comments of game condition - Robert reports that this area was a military test area. A small section of the concession was home to a military station at one time, but by no means even close to the whole concession as he is insinuating. All different types of game (including buffalo) flourish in this area and there has never been any military related danger to hunting in this area. The military were mainly responsible for patrols to capture illegal immigrants and poachers crossing from Mozambique into Kruger and Letaba Ranch. Letaba Ranch borders onto Kruger National Park for a long stretch and any fence that is between the two is virtually non-existent. I find it rather strange that Robert did not mention that the concession he hunted is slightly larger than the Makuleke Concession and borders onto the KNP for more than the Makuleke CPA does. Rather strange that reference is made in his letter on Page 4 to "your Kruger concession". He could be referring to probably about 10 different concessions that border onto the KNP all of which do limited hunting - None of them are called "Kruger concession". They all have specific names i.e.. Klaserie PNR, Timbavati PNR, Umbabaat PNR, Makuleke CPA. Leta.a Ranch. etc.

Ratings - I appreciate Robert's ratings, I just find it strange that the outfit is only rated as good as the outfit employs and supplies most of the excellent services & equipment. If all these ratings are in Robert's mind so high, why would a quality operation "as he said" misrepresent an area or anything else. I am not sure which part of our telephone conversation of around the 18th of August 2002 Robert misunderstood but I strongly despise and deny his allegations. Costs - in hindsight I am very sorry that I gave Robert any kind of discount on his safari. I did this in an attempt to show my regret for the misunderstanding that had occurred, knowing well that there was no good reason to do so - stupid on my behalf. It is a tough one when "I am so easy to get along with" clients turn around and stab you in the back.

Summary remarks - the safari was under no circumstances subcontracted to any other outfitter. Wayne Wagner Safaris supplied the professional hunter, accommodation, meals, caterer, vehicles, tracker/skinner, trophy care and all equipment. My only arrangement with another outfitter was the actual purchase of the buffalo.

On Page 3 Robert writes 'Wayne told me he had offered his last Makuleke Kruger buffalo permit to another PH and he had to make sure he had not sold the hunt before he could commit the permit to me". This is rubbish. I am the sole holder of the hunting rights in the Makuleke CPA and would not have to check with anyone before knowing whether I had a buffalo permit left or not. I hold all the permits for the Makuleke CPA quota. My response to Robert was "I have no buffalo permits left for the Makuleke conceession, but there is another area similar to the Makuleke area also bordering on the Kruger where I believe that we can find a buffalo if we spend the time like the one you are looking for. I will have to call a friend of mine to make sure if there are still buffalo available for 2002. I called this friend of mine who said he still had buffalo available. This is when I called Robert back and told him that I could get a permit. I repeated to Robert in an area similar to the Makuleke CPA area and that if the time was spent he could get the buffalo he was looking for.

Further down on Page 3 Robert says "Wayne assured me that Ian was a good PH and he knew Wayne's hunting area well". This is rubbish!!! I said to Robert that I knew the hunting area well when we were discussing the area. Robert had also said that he did not mind if I could not hunt with him and this is when I assured him that Ian was a good PH. Robert is blatantly twisting what I told him to try and make us look bad.

Page 4 has been dealt with in previous paragraphs.

When Robert arrived in South Africa I was on a plains game safari with clients I had previously committed to. The evening of his arrival I called him from the Eastern Cape to welcome him, wish him well and make sure that he was comfortable and satisfied with everything so far. According to him everything was great. I asked Ian to be sure and phone my home and leave a message with my wife on how it was going with the safari if there was cell reception. As it turned out there was no cell reception and I heard from my wife that they had shot a buffalo on the 3rd or 4th day. I was surprised that they had found a buffalo to Robert's likings in such a short time. Nowhere that I know does anybody just go out and shoot a massive buffalo without putting in lot of time. I figured that they had got lucky and had loads of time to spare. When they returned I called to congratulate Robert and see how he had enjoyed the buffalo hunt. This was the first time I heard about the area problems and Ian was the one to mention it to me. When I spoke to Robert on the phone I mentioned that I heard there was a problem. He was reluctant to talk about it and assured me it was nothing serious and that we could talk about it when I returned form the Eastern Cape. I was very surprised that there was a problem and that Robert was not happy. Robert & Ian continued to hunt for warthog and the next day left for another hunting area to try and find a nyala. Robert had requested to hunt a nyala if there was time and this was then arranged.

The paragraph's marked on Page 5 have been dealt with. Obviously I cannot vouch or comment on what Robert, Ian and the other PH spoke about as I was not there (refer to letter from Ian Brown). It is strange to me though that this particular PH/Outfitter has an advert running with a very large buffalo hunted on the same concession during 2002.

The last paragraph of Robert's letter on Page 5 says; that I made no attempt to discuss the matter. I feel that apologizing (for what I do not know) is bringing up the subject and trying to resolve it, but since I did not do anything wrong what is there to talk about'?

Page 6 - Robert needs to go and rethink his safari. His allegations are unfounded and untrue. I have never misrepresented trophy quality or hunting areas to anyone including Robert Johnson. I am sure that if Robert goes through his correspondence he will find most of the facts that a "contract" would contain. The rest I confirmed telephonically with him around the 18th August 2002. I do not know how he can make such allegations but I guess he must live with his conscience. With reference to native claims in the area, so what? The Makuleke CPA concession is also a native claim.

Robert's comments of scarcity of plains game I cannot comment on since I was not there. I must make reference to the letter from the PH (Ian Brown). On my trips to Letaba Ranch I have always seen an abundance of game, large & small. If Robert had taken his time he would have got the buffalo he was looking for (Ref: PH letter).

Don, Robert Johnson has tried for reasons unbeknown to me to put myself and Wayne Wagner Safaris in a bad light. Our company and reputation has been built on honesty, quality service and areas. I did not misrepresent area or trophy quality. In conclusion I leave you with a letter marked Page 7 from a client/friend that I received a couple of weeks after Robert's safari. I have removed his name and email address for confidentiality. I found it interesting reading as I received this email out of the blue. It was definitely appreciated.

Next time we communicate let us hope it is about that large elephent. Wayne Wagner Safaris will be hunting elephant and buffalo in the Makuleke CPA concession during 2003.

Date: January 14, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: Ian Brown RE: Complaint from Robert Johnson

After reading Robert Johnson's report I would like to make some comments on our hunt in Letaba Ranch. My name is Ian Brown and I am the professional hunter who accompanied Robert on his hunt. Here is my interpretation of the safari. 1. Robert Johnson did mention that there was a misunderstanding between himself & Wayne. 2. The area we hunted was approximately 100,000 acres bordering on the Kruger National Park. Elephants have destroyed the fence in a lot of places so the game is able to move freely from Kruger to Letaba Ranch. The resident outfitter/professional hunter mentioned that there are a permanent number of about 600 buffalo that move to and through the concession. 3. Plenty of game was spotted in this area and they are as follows: . Elephant . Buffalo . Lion . Hippo . Giraffe . Burchell's Zebra . Bushbuck (rams & ewes) . Waterbuck (bulls & cows) . Kudu (bulls & cows) . Warthog (boars & sows) . Steenbuck . Duiker . Impala Many of the above mentioned species were good quality trophies. I do not understand why Robert missed everything. 4. A small part of the area had been used as a South African Defence Force training area but has obviously been declared safe as we were in a game park area and allowed to enter the training area. 5. The buffalo that Robert shot was an exceptional animal. He was a big old bull with very large bosses (one of Robert's requirements) and a very good spread. The quality of the bull was explained to him before he shot - he made that decision all on his own. 6. Although I did not know the area, the professional hunter/outfitter that accompanied us has hunted in this area for a very long time and knew the area well as does Wayne. 7. The Outfitter/professional hunter who accompanied us did mention that he would only be with us for 4 days but that Robert & myself could carryon with the safari with the assistance of a good game scout that knew the area. I am most certainly capable of hunting good quality buffalo. 8. Robert was aware of the above mentioned fact and he knew that time was no problem. 9. We stayed in a very good tented camp. I would recommend it to any professional hunter to make use of it. 10. Overall, Robert had a very good time. I know that Wayne went out of his way to sort out any misunderstanding that might have occurred.

Date: February 11, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: Robert Johnson Re: Rebuttal to Wayne Wagner's Rebuttal

First I need to point out I had no problems with lam Brown he is a tough & young experienced hunter and a great guy to hunt with. If anybody's to blame it's Wayne for sending him out with a client on a buffalo hunt in an area he had never been to, or even seen for that matter.

The area PH from Lataba Ranch (I decided not to use his name because he is not an employee of Wagner Safaris) seemed to be an honest person. He was very experienced and knew the area like the back of his hand. There's no question without his knowledge of the buffalo & their watering holes, my hunt would have been a complete disaster. I truly thank him for helping. Evidently he was only paid for the buffalo and not to guide me.

Lataba Ranch Was a military training ground for the South African military. The Area PH told me he did his basic training in Lataba when he was in the military. We came across many exploded mortar rounds, hundreds if not thousands of spent rifle cartridges, numerous fox holes & mortar bunkers. I was never afraid to hunt in this area. I liked looking for the mortars & and enjoyed seeing the military history of the area. The reason a mentioned the military training base, decimated plains game & the looting of all buildings, was to dispel any belief tha it's some sort of Garden of Eden & as good as Wayne's Makuleke concession.

The letter from Ian Brown Take it for what it is a letter typed & written by Wayne & signed by Iam. It would be impossible for lam to publicly say anything bad about Wayne.

The letter from Mike Flannery This looks like a personal business letter. I can only hope Wayne got Mike Flannery's permission to publish it. Nothing earth shattering, He says I think I am a South African expert with a big mouth. No need to get in to calling people names. But I challenge anybody to find one person that can call me dishonest. Mike booked & hunted buffalo on Wayne's Makuleke concession killing a tremendous 46" bull. Mike paid $3,500 and only had to pay a $10,000 trophy fee if he killed a bull. I wish I had been treated that fairly.

Wayne you advertise you have a concession in the Northern Province comprising 1 million acres of unfenced land, some of which borders Kruger Park. That its legal name?

On Aug. 16 after talking to AI Lammert about hunting on your Makuleke concession. He emailed saying we actually do have one permit left in this area at this time, and its available if you could travel yet this fall. He wasn't sure you were going to be able to keep the Makulcke concession next year. And if you did he anticipated a $2,000 to $3,000 price increase for the year 2003 hunting season. Who bought the Makuleke permit you advertised in August? When did he hunt?

I should never put a deposit on this hunt, without getting written contract, with a complete summary of the proposed hunt. Detailing all Concessions by their Legal names & all PHs involved. If I had I would have immediately spotted the change of hunting concessions.

Wayne is the one ultimately reasonable for this disaster. He is the one that broke the law. By not providing me with a written contract before I left for South Africa.

I would appreciate hearing from anybody who had a similar misunderstanding.

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

Date: April 10, 2003 To: The Hunting Report From: Dave Tucker RE: Complaint about Wayne Wagner Safaris from Robert Johnson

I am writing you this letter in response to your recent hunting report on Wayne Wagner Safaris from Robert B. Johnson.

I have hunted with Wayne Wagner and Ian Brown several times, and can assure you that Wayne would never ever do a bait and switch hunt.

Wayne and Ian have both given 1,000 % and more for me on my safaris. I wouldn't ever hesitate to hunt with them again.

What Mr. Johnson did not mention was if Wayne promised him that he would be hunting in the Makuleke Kruger concession, I don't think that Wayne would have been on another safari with other clients. Wayne is the only PH who has access to that concession and would most certainly be the PH there.

If you look at the trophy size of the buffalo, nyala and warthog that Mr. Johnson got, he did very well on the hunt. They most certainly score very high in the SCI record book. It took me three safaris before I finally got a warthog.

I first met Wayne back in 1996 at a local SCI show in Charlotte, NC. I had just returned from a very bad safari in Zimbabwe where I didn't see a single animal that we were supposed to be hunting in twelve days of hard hunting.

Wayne told me that he didn't know what the problem there was but you won't have any problems with him and that was most certainly true!

I was really impressed with Wayne's high degree of professionalism and am not disappointed that I booked that first safari with him.

I hope this letter will help clear things up.

Dear Mr Wagner, Attached please find a copy of the charge sheet in your matter vs. Mr Johnson.

If you require any documentation for the hearing, please submit a written request for it to the PHASA Office. Regards, Marianna Louwrens Snr Admin Assistant Tel: 012 667 2048
