Did the Germans give you a hard time in Frankfurt cause of you hunting equipment? I had an awesome meal on the Frankfurt airport a couple of years ago on my way to Norway. Awesome schnitzel.

There issue was my amount of Euro's & dollars.......just harrassment at best. Very odd based on our multiple trips abroad and very familiar with the maximum's! One glorified automatic rifle carrying idiot called me a liar.
Finally, one guy with a brain (after 10 others) was like, "no problem"!

What a bowhunting challenge it has been for 2 days near Ares, Spain!!!. (Another filming site for Game of Thrones)
This is the beast from the spotting scope that I believed my guides were crazy for attempting to bowhunt !!! 34 yard quartering away shot deep down in the "pit of misery"! So far down one of my guides tore his exterior cruciate ligament and had to be evacuated from that hail hole! Talk about a rough experience for all of us........ouch!!!

Oscar, you never cease to amaze me with your hunts and trophies. Congrats on another great trophy! Her I am being excited about killing a big whitetail and you are over the ocean experiencing the hunt of a lifetime for most and letting us live it thru a live thread. Congrats! Cannot wait to see your write ups for this hunt!

I'm sure. I leaned hard in Saskatchewan not to want food from home.

Really wanted a chicken fried steak and a sweet tea. I got breaded veal and instant tea.


And the ibex is a giant!
