Tucuman

 Dear Larry, I think the first thing I did upon returning from Argentina was to call you and tell you about the really great trip we had. Gustavo Olsen and his staff run what is probably the best operation in Argentina. I have been shooting in Argentina since 1991 and this is the best ever. The shooting, staff, lodge, food are the Best! Moreover we were able to be with Gustavo personally for all but one day during our shoot. His selection of guns makes it unnecessary to bring guns into Argentina and avoid that agony at the airport. My friend Reed Morian, greatly recommended this operation to me as he has been going down yearly for many years and he was certainly correct. I appreciate your recommendation as well as your help organizing out trip; TREK has always been first class! We are certainly planning on a yearly trip to Inti Malal and I want to bring my entire family. Again, Many Thanks



Guyascate Lodge   [top]

Guyascate Lodge

We have just returned from the most memorable trip with Tommy and our group. All I can say is that we were completely blown away by our stay and the shooting at Guayascate! Every bit of our experience was absolutely enjoyable and I must congratulate and thank you and everyone at Trek for your contribution to making this trip an absolute highlight for Vicky and me! Having been in the same industry for 43 years we know what it takes to provide the excellence which is so conspicuous at the marvelous lodge. Without exception every aspect of our trip was out of the top draw. The spectacular and super comfortable lodge, the gracious and highly experienced staff, the culinary delights, the highly professional operations management, the efficient and easy tranfers and of course the superb Dove shooting all collectively set a standard that I am sure cannot be equaled anywhere in Argentina. Thank you very much!



Bolivia La Leyenda   [top]

Bolivia La Leyenda

This is a follow up as you requested on our trip to Carlos & Olga’s La Leynda lodge. The trip went very smooth. Carlos and his people have always gone out of their way to provide the most enjoyable trouble free hunts that we have experienced with any of the outfitters in South America. This trip was no exception. The population of birds seems to have increased since our last visit and he has put together multiple types of shooting areas that provides the hunters with something different each hunt. Carlos was able to provide the 28 gage shells that I requested and was also able to increase the quantity of shells to accommodate my usage. The temperatures were perfect we did not need AC the whole trip which is a first for us. The lodge has hired a new cook and the meals were outstanding. I will be in the gym for weeks to come getting shed of the pounds I added during our stay.



Costa Rica   [top]

Costa Rica

Took off couple days over the fourth, sorry for the delay in responding.  I think we had a wonderful time and don’t have anything bad or critical to say.  Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a good time.  I’ve attached a few pictures, so you can see we had wonderful luck with the fishing and everyone caught what they were wishing for.  Captain and crew were nice people and worked very hard to insure we had a great experience.  Thanks for all your help, ideas and hard work.  Whenever I take a trek trip, I don’t have to worry about a thing and that is worth a lot to me.



Cordoba La Portenita   [top]

Cordoba La Portenita

I just wanted you to know our dove hunt last month couldn’t have gone better. Your representative, Gloria, met us at the Buenos Aires airport and flawlessly handled our transfers and accommodations coming and going. La Portinita lodge exceeded any expectations we may have had. It is a beautiful hacienda and the household staff, led by Cynthia, anticipated our every need. The cold towels, sparkling wine and hot hors d’ouvers waiting for us outside the front door when we returned from shooting was a particularly nice touch. We would enjoy the wine sitting outside around the fire pit talking about missed shots and eared dove evasive maneuvers before grabbing a shower and eating a perfectly prepared dinner with great malbec wine. There is no way to adequately describe the shooting. I had heard there were a lot of dove but this was beyond my wildest dreams. We both were able to shoot over a thousand birds each full day and B.B. killed over two thousand the first full day (the boy got carried away!). The Argentine barbeques in the field were as elegant as it gets and the siestas in the hammocks were a welcome break after a hard morning’s shooting. The afternoon shooting seemed to me to even outpace the frantic action of the morning. It was a great five days and, true to your prediction, we opted to forego the last morning’s shoot in favor of a massage for our tired bodies – we were shot out!

 

Thank you and the Argentina staff for the dove hunt of a lifetime!

I am at my desk physically but continue to be distracted by visions of river, fish, grandson, and new friends. Kevin, what an outrageous place to take a kid as it offers the total package from river rafting, fishing, camping, hiking and all in an extremely beautiful surrounding with the mountains and wildlife.

I could not have hand picked a more perfect guide and teacher than Bob Evans for this trip with my grandson. Bob was extremely patient with Nathan and the two of them became best buddies minutes into the first day. In the course of three days of fishing Nathan boated 200 fish, lost at least 25 jig heads with a couple hundred yards of 10 pound monofilament, those two were quite the pair. I personally caught over 200 fish with the largest being 18”. Gill, other guide, also served as the camp cook and what a “chef”!! Nathan made his trip by commenting to the others that this was five star restaurant quality and of course everyone was quick to share with Gill. These two and the two gear guys were all very attentive to our needs.



Bolivia   [top]

Bolivia

Simply put, this last trip just could not have been any better.  As you know, we're no strangers to hunting in Bolivia, but Jorge kind of outdid himself on this trip. The morning shoots were the best we've ever been on and the afternoon shoots were--well--typical afternoon roost shoots with more birds than the mind can process. Jorge took us a bit farther away on a couple of afternoons to shoot pigeons....and I'm hooked--more damned pigeons than I have seen anywhere in my life!  Terrific fun.

Larry, I suspect Tom has contacted you already, and I wish to add my comments.  I have been taking these trips for about 20 years now and several to South America with TREK.  The trip to Inti Malal in Argentina just completed was, in a word, outstanding! Everything within Gustavo’s control was beautifully executed. He was able to deliver the high bird that we so much seek to challenge us. The lodge staff, headed by Mercedes (who is an absolute sweetheart!) was exemplary. We could not have asked for better  Bird boys were experienced and served us well.  All in all, this was the very best trip I have had the pleasure to be on.  A big “well done” to all involved

Kevin looking back over the 20 years and the numerous great trips you have put together for me I would have to say this has been one of the very best. Great Bill fishing one day and awesome inshore the next. We caught 6 nice sails and a big black marlin the first day and 5 snook (two over 30lbs) plus 2 rooster fish the second. The last day we went south along the beautiful Costa Rican coastline. We stopped and caught some nice jacks but for the most part we just relaxed and enjoyed the day. Capt Rafa and his mate Kevin were very competent, hard working, knowledgeable, and friendly. Also the boat and equipment were top flight. As usual everyone associated with Trek was very cordial and helpful and Milena was a delight. Please tell her again how much we appreciated all her hard work. Finally, we loved the Tulemar bunglow.
Thanks Kaster



Costa Rica   [top]

Kevin, Glen and I had a great time at Parismina Lodge. The Tarpon fishing was excellent. The equipment was first rate, the boats were well suited for that area and our guide Ragy was very good. I would also like to note that the accommodations were very nice and the food and service was first class. I will definitely go there again. My only regret was not getting into any snook. Next time I would like to limit my fishing to snook with Ragy.

 After several days of catching big tarpon in the mouth of the Rio Colorado River we tried snook fishing one morning w/o success. We are aware that there are giant world record snook caught here but they were not biting that day. The wind picked up in the afternoon so Tarpon was the only fishing option. Since we had already caught plenty of big tarpon in the river mouth we decided to have our guide take us upriver into the jungle. We found BIG salt water crocodiles, caiman, two toe sloth, spider monkeys, otter, giant iguana in bright breeding colors, parrots and lots of other exotic birds and plants. It was a memorable trip. That night we caught smaller crocodiles. We will send you some pictures. Thanks for all your assistance. Kaster



Cordoba La Portenita   [top]

Cordoba La Portenita

Larry,
 

I think was my 6th or 7th  trip with TREK. I started with a combo hunt at Ariel Seminov’s and have since gone to La Portenita.  In all these trips we have NEVER experienced one glitch, hiccup , problem etc.  If we have flown into BA your rep has always handled things flawlessly whether we have chartered or transited to the domestic airport.

 The experience through H and H is beyond comparison from top to bottom from the time they meet us at the airport til we depart.  That includes Javier, the house staff, bird boys and of course Gabriel who coordinates it all.  I have been invited on other Cordoba hunts but always respectfully decline as I know the experience will not be on the same level as what I become accustomed through with TREK / H and H.
 
I have taken many different groups. Some of them have hunted through other outfitters.  They tell me that the TREK experience is far superior to any other hunt they have done in Cordoba.
 
So thanks, as always for you professional help (and Kathy’s) on this end.  We will be booking more trips in the future.
 
 
Yours Very Truly,
Ric

Cara, you are a true superstar!  It was the trip of a lifetime, thanks to you, Milton, and Trek Safaris overall.  Your recommendations were amazing, I literally wouldn't change a thing.  It was so well handled by Trek and Wilderness, and the hotels/lodges were out of this world.  The food, wines, animals, hotels, people, were all just so incredible!!  I hope we have paved the way for you/Trek to send many many others on similar southern African adventures.  Thank you thank you thank you!!

Nicaragua Duck Hunt

 

Dear Kevin,

Just a note to advise you that we had a fantastic hunt in Nicaragua the few days before Thanksgiving. There were more ducks this year than on many of my several hunts to Nicaragua. The new hotel was beautiful with good food and a nice bar. Please forward a copy of this letter to Richard as he took good care of us as always.

Sincerely,
Emerson



Honduras Dove Shoot   [top]

Honduras Dove Shoot

Dear Kevin,

I wanted to write and express to you my appreciation for the arrangements which you made on the Honduras Dove Shoot. I truly felt that it was an outstanding hunting experience because of the versatility of the different hunts. The management in Honduars, as well as the accommodations, were truly outstanding. I would recommend anyone who enjoys dove hunting to consider a trip to Honduras such as that which you have provided.

Sincerely,
John

Kevin,

Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you that we had a great time.  The Condo was great, the boat and crew were first class, and Felipe went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of.  Lauren said it 'exceeded her expectations", which I had never heard her say.  If you ever need a reference for the trip, I would be happy to provide it.

Thanks,
Mark

Kevin,

Wanted to let you know that everything was as advertised on our Jan. hunt. Food good, hotel good, and the hunting was excellent. No glitches whatsoever. Please let me know when the Fall dates are set. We probably will book again for late Nov. or early Dec. Keep me posted on the schedule. Again, it was a great hunt.

Tecka Lodge

 

Trek,

 

From Monica Knull in B.A. to the Alvear Palace to my excellent guide (Tomas gave me best six days of fishing I have ever had) to the wonderful staff at Tecka (Caridad) and their special attend to my wife Charlotte. She did't fish but had great fun with Frederico's puppy. I am sure she spoiled him with the attention she gave him.

Milton we need to get Billy S. and his group to Tecka. If Frederico will have me I plan to go back next year at the same time. It is the BEST LOCATION for your clients in South America.

 

Take care,

Hal N.

Hi Larry,
 
the stay was nothing short of excellent. Both the Americans and the British were great to be with – colorful, interesting people always makes for a good trip. Their expressions both during the shooting and in the lodge was particularly good. As for me personally – I must say it’s one of the best places I’ve ever been and it is such an incredible place to stay - thanks to the assistance and kindness of Zeke and his staff. I will talk to him at a later point, but give him my warmest regards.
 
Best,
Christian
