Importing Finished Taxidermy from RSA to Canada Info Needed
I got the call that my stuff is all done (finished taxidermy) in RSA and is ready to be shipped to Toronto. I have decided to clear the trophies on my own to save a few bucks and am looking for info from those who have done this. I have 6 tanned flatskins (kudu, blue wildebeest, blesbuck, springbuck, impala & zebra) and 5 euro skulls w/ horns (kudu, black wildebeest, springbuck, impala & warthog).
What forms did you need from your taxidermist?
What forms did you need to fill out for Customs here?
Did you pay duties or taxes?
Anything else you found out the hard way that you could share?
The Canada Customs website is a mind-numbing labyrinth. I'll head over to their office on Front St. on Monday to inquire there but would like the benefit of some firsthand experience to back up what they tell me.
Thanks in advance, gents.
