“I promised to give you a brief hunt report as soon as possible after our return to the States. We returned home on Wednesday afternoon as scheduled with no problems either going to or coming home from Cordoba.
As expected, the accommodations were most comfortable and enjoyable in every way. The food and personal service were exceptional.
With respect to the shooting, to both my surprise and delight, it was better than I have ever enjoyed before. As you know, Alice and I were observers and our grandsons were the shooters. Prior to departing Kentucky, we had agreed that regardless of the volume of birds available each boy would stop at 1,000 birds per day. Frankly, I had little hope of attaining this lofty goal even for one day. The actual results were as follows:
Tom Monarch, Age 17, Day 1 – 1010 birds; Day 2, 1010 birds; Day 3, 1010 birds
Clay Monarch, Age 15, Day 1 – 1010 birds; Day 2, 1010 birds; Day 3, 1010 birds
Each day, I let the boys shoot 10 extra birds each just in case their bird boy had incorrectly counted a kill which should not have been counted.
Tom shot a total of 157 boxes which amounts to a success rate of 78%. (Note: Alice let Tom finish an open box of shells after our official limit of 1010 birds was reached.)
Clay shot a total of 158 boxes which amounts to a success rate of 77%.
All in all, the trip was wonderful and if you ever need a reference, please do not hesitate to use me.”
