Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:I wanted to mainly respond to your email concerning the new gun regulations. If they cannot figure out a way to get the people in the Buenos Aires airport customs to do their job, I will never return to Argentina. We spent 2 hours mostly waiting for someone to fill out forms again. RENAR was very efficient and courteous. Customs both coming and going was very slow. It took nearly 5 hours on exiting the country to get through all the hoops. Immigration treated me like a criminal because RENAR stamped in black instead of red. I was forced to return with an agent while he stamped in black in front of him. I have hunted 10 times with big and small groups in Argentina. It has gone from a fun place to visit to the most painful gun process in my expierence. They have more than just a form replacement to fix.
