    I was wondering if anyone here has hunted with EAI Outdoors? If so, how was it?

    Note - Please ignore my post about ESI outdoors. As Ed pointed out, I had the name wrong.

    Bearkat,

    I leave in 58 days for EAI RSA two person package. My wife will go with me to ride along on my plains game hunt.

    I checked several to a dozen references and I only had one that was in question and would be happy to share with you. Obliviously it did not worry me enough to change my mind. When I return on 16 October I will be happy to give you or any AH member any feedback you or they may want.

    Best of luck,
    Steve

    I've never hunted with EAI but I've been emailing back and forth with Ed and He seems to be a up and up guy send him a message and address and he'll mail you a free dvd on the hunting area. Fearnot4me what days have you got booked to hunt in June I'm guessing you'l be Flying in to East London your only a couple of hours away from where I'll be hunting in Tarkastad. :D

    Dear Brickburn:


    Our records show that we did indeed send out the refund but to Allen's father as that was the mailing address we had on the file. They were both planning on coming together and booked together. That check was never cashed. Apprently his father had taken ill and that was the reason for not being able to hunt. Allen then called us about this and he informed us that his father had moved and had a different address. We then sent out a refund to the new address Allen gave us and it also has not been cashed. Not sure what is going on here.

    Dear Brickburn:

    I am pleased to report this has been sorted out. I called Allen today and we decided that it was best to send a replacement again but this time Certified Mail with tracking numbers so we can always know what is going on.

    I just met Ed at DSC. I'm curious to see if there was ever a gunting report posted here that I missed. The couples package seems like a heck of a deal at $4400.... Any further insight would be greatly appreciated.
