    Hank2211 ~ I'm just guessing there wasn't any coverage for the trophies by the storage facility. I know you can pay to insure your trophies via the freight company when they ship them to the U.S. but other than that had really not thought whether there's any type of policy you can get to cover your stuff from the time you take it to the time you get it home. This is probably going to raise a lot of issues for future safaris! There may be some insurance companies that will step forward now to take your premiums - lol!

    Maybe your current home insurance and a good lawyer. They are your property after all.
    Good luck.

    WOW!!! That is unbelievable, for what it's worth, looks like some Cape Buff horns in the lower left hand corner of the picture and "a" Kudu horn above them. Doubtful, but maybe some of the horns and skulls can be salvaged at least. Kind of like being at a funeral, my condolences to all affected.

    That sucks ses. It probably won't make you feel better but I heard that there was a guy who lost a leopard in the fire. And it was a TOAD!

    In regards to the topic of insurance coverage. It sounds to me like all of these mounts had left the various taxidermists and therefore in my mind would be considered "in transit"? Isn't this when the insurance is now in effect? I know I didn't pay for insurance on my mounts until the transportation kicked in. Once they left the taxidermist and were under the care of the shipping company, I was under the impression that was when the insurance took effect.

    Just heard back from Colletts and my stuff is with another shipper so not part of the fire. They did have one clients order in that fire who had asked for a different shipper than the one they usually use.

    Guys, this is why it's so very important to take and have proper photo's of your hunt! If you can afford it, get a videographer film your hunt. Take hundreds of pics....they're worth the effort! Make sure your PH spends the time doing the pictures right! They may be all you have!
