Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:Mechanical breakdown (Jeep/Van). I saw in your last report about Adilet and I felt I must also come forward. I wanted to take my sheep with me. Adilet would not let me. Daily e-mails were ignored. I waited until after my CITES expired to get my sheep. They issued a new one (Mike Carpenter). To keep my sheep 8 months after the hunt; the skin was ready when I left Bishkek.
