    Default TROPHY CONFISCATION IN LIMPOPO

    FYI. I just got this note from a taxidermist.

    Dear Client
    I just want to bring the following under your attention:
    A couple of weeks ago we had a visit from the green scorpions. With their visit several trophies were confiscated
    because it was not handed in with the legal hunting documentation.
    For me to run a taxidermy I have to comply with the regulations of nature conservation and veterinary regulations.
    Nature conservation require that when I take a trophy in it must be accompanied by the legal hunting
    documentation. Department of Veterinary require that trophies handed in must be accompanied by the
    legal transport permit. Please make sure that you have all the necessary documentation before you leave the
    farm.
    In future I will unfortunately not accept any trophies without these documents accompanying the trophies. I
    ask for your co-operation in this matter.


    Geagte Klient
    Hiermee wil ek net die volgende onder u aandag bring.
    創 Paar weke terug het ons 創 besoek van die groenskerpioene gehad. Met hul besoek is verskeie trofee konfiskeer
    omdat die jagdokumentasie nie saam met die trofee ingehandig is nie.
    Vir my om 創 taksidermie te bedryf moet ek aan natuurbewaring en veeartseny se regulasies voldoen.
    Natuurbewaring vereis dat wanneer ek 創 trofee ontvang moet die wettige jagdokumentasie dit vergesel.
    Veeartseny vereis dat die wettige vervoerpermit die trofee vergesel. Maak dus seker dat julle al die regte dokumentasie
    het voordat julle die jagplaas verlaat.
    Ek sal in die toekoms ongelukkig geen trofee kan aanvaar sonder dat dit hierdie dokumentasie vergesel nie.
    Ek vra asb. u samewerking in die verband.
    Ek wil ook die volgende onder u aandag bring:
    Ek sal nie by die taksidermie wees vanaf 12 Oktober nie , ek sal eers 24 Oktober terug wees op kantoor.
    Indien daar iets dringend is kontak my asb. voor hierdie datum om 創 reeling te tref.


    Please take note:
    I will be out of office from 12 October and I will only be back on 24 October. For any urgent matter
    please contact me before this date to make arrangements.

    Vriendelike Groete/ Kind Regards

    This is 100 % correct. There were quite a few inspections or raids if you want to call it that. It is imperitive that us as oufitters do make sure all the paperwork are in order when trophies are transported or hunted. On the other hand it is alsontrue that we sometimes deal with incompetant people that gets authority without knowing left from right ! I am sure this will be resolved though !

    OH BOY, someone's not going to happy about this? It's always the paperwork!!! And the fact that people are lazy and don't follow through with commitment and honor.

    I do hope that this is a general letter to his clients and that your trophy's are all doing well...

    Have you received any additional information regarding your trophy's?

    Mine are all safely on the wall.

    My other hunting partners trophies have just arrived last week. (Ubombo via Safari Cargo) All look good and the packing is great.

    The last hunter in our party is still waiting for his trophies, (a different taxidermist and shipping company)
    British Airways refused to allow his trophies on the plane. Some crap about pigs.
    Mine went through, other buddies went the same route.

    I am starting to think it is political amongst the various shipping companies.
