I can not say enough about how great this trip was! The whole experience was nothing less than excellent. It began with Umit meeting us at the airport in Istabul and ended up with Cuneyt putting us on the plane in Baku to come home. Every person that you had us dealing with was first class and did everything in their power to see that we had a wonderful time. Rob had some concerns about spending time in Istanbul before our trip began. But by the time we had to leave Istanbul to travel on to Baku, we were both wishing we had another day or two to spend with Umit. He was the best tour guide and people handler I have ever had and I can’t thank him enough. Then everyone in Baku was as good as Umit. I’m not sure if Cuneyt told you about his health problems, but we believe he had a kidney stone. That is as painful as it can get, even when you are in a hospital and Cuneyt was on top of the mountain with us when it hit him. But he was one of the most dedicated employees I have ever seen. He would not give in to the pain and would not give up his task of trying to take care of Rob and I and he definitely earned both mind and Rob’s utmost respect. He is a good person who cares for the people he is taking care of and he represents Caprinae in the best possible way. You have a very valuable employee with Cuneyt and I hope that you appreciate him as much as we did as hunters.
The animals were everything we expected and the local guides were also among the best in the business. They were all very caring and concerned about our well being and their hunting skills were wonderful. I would hunt with any of these people anytime under any circumstances and I would have the confidence of knowing I would be well taken care of.
Rob and I are seriously considering coming back for Bezoar Ibex, possible in February, 2017, if possible.
