Total taxidermy cost (Moredou Taxidermy, Safari Cargo Systems, and Fauna and Flora)
Ok. I am doing a total cost report for my taxi work I recieved today. Hunt took place the first week of May 2011. So total turn arround was just over 13 months. It would have been sooner if it was not for expired export permits. Probably about 10 months.
Work done by Moredou taxidermy:
White Blesbok: shoulder mnt
Springbok: skull, flat skin
Common Blesbok: skull, flat skin
Impala: shoulder mnt
Impala #2: skull, flat skin
Blue Wildebeast: shoulder mnt
Gemsbok: ped shoulder mnt
Jackal: flat skin
Bushbok: ped shoulder mnt
Total paid to Moredou taxidermy was just under $2300. This included the packaging of the crate for shipment. They where always in contact and answered any questions I had.
Next was Safari Cargo Systems. They picked up my crate from Moredou and handled my export to the U.S. Andrew was more than helpful through the entire process. This is where I ran into my export permit problem. Took an extra month only to find out they forgot impala #2 permit. So added another month. Once this was taken care of my trophies where state side in about 2 weeks. Set up the air fare and insurance as well.
Total cost from SCS: $1644.06
Final leg of the trip was handled by Fauna and Flora. They got my crate from New York and cleared all the paperwork. Also set up the shipment from NYC to Ohio via YRC. This took about 2 weeks to my front door.
Total cost from F&F: $882.69. (freight from NYC to Ohio $384.15)
Grand total was $4826.75 give or take cent :D
Here are some pics....I will give better ones as I get them out.
