You were absolutely right, Rita and Doug run an absolutely awesome facility. Accommodations, food, hospitality, and hunting all first class. Thanks again for a great recommendation on a truly wonderful hunt. Doug and Rita along with their crew put a lot of effort into making everyone welcome and successful! As you well know, I have many outfits throughout the world to compare to, and North 49 ranks certainly in the top three if not number one.
"Wow what an experience! From the time we arrived the hospitality was second to none. We were also provided with one great meal after another. This was my first elk hunt and I was very impressed by the efforts the guides put forth. We did see an incredible amount of elk and I was fortunate enough to get one. I would highly recommend this trip especially if its your first elk hunt!"
"Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how much we enjoyed our trip with Vacances Adventures. It was a pleasure to meet and hunt with Ivan and Damion, both are true gentlemen and professionals. We found Mauritius to be a unique and exotic destination with wonderful beaches and stunning scenery. The hunting territory was both rugged and beautiful and made for challenging stalking. The quality and quantity of Rusa deer was simply spectacular. We also had a day on the ocean, and even though we weren’t there during peak fishing season, we still scored on a couple of skipjack tuna and a 200 pound yellowfin. This was a great add-on to our South African trip. Overall, a wonderful experience we’d love to do again."

"Wes, wonderful trip! Nice job! Thanks!"
"First off, I had the time of my life on this trip! Words can't express how impressed I was with the hunting, cultural experience, attention to detail, etc. There was NOTHING on this trip that was short of exemplary! George and Rike treated us like friends and totally part of their family. This really made the trip special. George was an absolute pleasure to hunt with every day and he was so willing to stop for photos of birds and other wildlife. I will tell you that this is my second hunt booked through your company and I will NEVER book through anyone else. I am convinced that there are few people in this industry that are as truthful, professional and helpful as you!"
"In 35 years going out of state hunting (at least 50 trips) I would rank it in the top three I have been on. It's hard to decide what was the best part - whether it was the people or scenery or quality of game. It was by far undersold and over delivered of any hunt I have been on. Thanks again for all your help putting it together."
"In 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 I have made six trips to Lake Baccarac and fished a total of 20 days. During those 20 days of fishing I have caught, weighed and released 28 Largemouth Bass weighing 10 pounds or better, with my two largest fish weighing in at 16 pounds 13 ounces and 15 pounds 9 ounces. During 2005, two of our guests caught Bass weighing 18 pounds 3 ounces and 18 pounds 8 ounces! Even on the worst day, Lake Baccarac Bass fishing is awesome and some days are totally unbelievable. I could use a whole paragraph just listing the names of men, women and children who caught their first bass over 10 pounds during 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. I cannot even begin to estimate how many Bass weighing between 6 and 9 pounds I've caught during my trips. For 30-plus years I have loved to Bass fish. I have bass fished from Zimbabwe, Africa to Ontario, Canada, and never have I fished a place like Lake Baccarac. Its is special for not only the number of fish, but also quality of fish."
"This was my first time billfishing and I boated 11 sails and 1 Dorado the first day! In July, the off season! I can't wait to experience the high season. Captain Erik and crew were absolutely first class. How many of you have fished aboard off shore boats that grill fresh lunch daily? Casa Vieja will spoil you."
"This hunt vastly exceeded all my expectations. The game density on the property is very good. There are good herds of Zebra, Gemsbok, Kudu, Black Wildebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Hartebeest, Springbok and Steenbok. There also are good numbers of Warthogs, Jackals, Klipspringer and Baboons. We didn't see (or seek to hunt) any Leopards or Hyenas, but we saw plenty of their tracks. In addition to game animals, we also saw Hyrax, Red-Eared Fox, an Aardwolf and a Honey Badger. Although we had 4 active hunters on the Deloch farm, none of us had any trouble filling our tickets."
"First I would like to thank you and Peter for this hunt. Sharon and I had a wonderful time and the camp and staff were great. Sharon even ate some of the game we harvested!"
