    Hello all. I just wanted to let anyone know who is thinking of hunting with LBG safaris to be careful. I'm coming up on three years now from hunting with Bossie and still have not received my trophies. I can't even get an answer to where they are. Not to mention the $1500 I left with him for a deposit on an elephant hunt. But what do you expect from an outfitter that sells illegal leopard hunts. Be warned!

    I will not take a side here given this limited information. Either Bossie's or yours. You've leveled some serious accusations, however you've not provided any information to support those accusations. I would recommend you do so if you intend to gather support from the members here.

    I repeat, I'm not taking a side in this situation at this point.

    I could understand your frustration but allegations of illegal hunts without some substantiation is rather suspect.

    Do share some details.

    Bossie is right here on AH. Feel free to contact him.

    Once again you come onto a public forum with the same story as two years ago.

    First time you started your complaints was on AR ,where I put all the facts in writing. When you didn't get the satisfaction you hoped for you posted in the TH Forum where your post was quickly removed and you were banned by the moderator.

    As before you come onto a public forum trying to insult and humiliate me and make up your own version of the facts.
    You insulted Me, My late Wife and my Son without setting the actual facts down. You threatened me with lawyers and I kindly advised you to see someone that can handle your issues on a civilized manner. You sent me several threatening emails.

    Now fact is. You have issues that are not my place to mention on a public forum. As before and as it always will be, please consult with your lawyer so he can contact me.

    Oh.... I remember this guy.... There was indeed a thread on AR where he jumped into a separate hunt report of Bossie's with all sorts of unsubstantiated accusations, just like he did here. The thread didn't even go to page 2, I think likely due to the incoherent ramblings of the accuser at the time. I do recall someone asking the gentleman if he was intoxicated.

    As others have said, facts need to be provided for serious accusations such as these. The fact that threads have been posted on other forums and facts never provided makes this even more suspect to me. Also, the gentleman started a post here last fall and never came back to it. I wonder why? Did he somehow forget he posted it?

    Full disclosure - I've hunted with Bossie before and will do so again. I consider him a close friend. He knows he's welcome in my home at anytime.

    @rtawy ,

    I share the same position as PHOENIX PHIL in that I am not taking sides, but I will say this from the prospective as a client myself who has hunted with many outfitters and currently represents one here on AH.com.... Regardless of whether or not there is merit to any of your allegations, without detailed support of those allegations, you have already, and unfairly, created an unfavorable portrayal of the outfitter that cannot be erased regardless of what comes next. You are using a tactic that is very popular in the mainstream media these days in that you are leveling some bombshell accusations without citing a backstory or any facts to support your claims. In my opinion, that is not only grossly unfair to the outfitter, it is reckless and dangerous...

    If you have grievances that are legitimate, then by all means state them clearly and with as much factual documentation as you can provide. Prospective clients can then decide for themselves from that point on... Otherwise, retract your comments and settle your dispute privately and directly with the outfitter. The internet can be a wonderful tool for research, but it can also do devastating damage to reputations that have taken a lifetime to build, and that power should be taken seriously and used responsibly...

    these kind of accusations really make my blood boil

    one unsubstantiated claim like this gets read by a potential client can cost an outfitter.

    i believe that people should air their grievences, in the proper way, through proper channels and with substantial evidence to back up their claims.

    best regards
