I think we have brought this testy subject up before to. (Must come up every time I am traumatized.) Oh, this guy was going to charge tax on Trophy Fees AND Taxidermy costs AND likely anything else they could dream up. If it were just the Taxidermy I'd accept it. Value added, fair enough. (Been there done that, just like you) Your story reinforces the idea that they use intimidation to get people to conform. Threaten an unreasonable amount and you settle for a lower amount, even though it is not reasonable either, just to save your time and energy and expense. Taxation by frustration. Maybe they learned from Insurance claims department policies. Being creative, I have taken care of the hostage thing and my very reasonable taxes are paid in full. The over zealous do not work every day. Thankfully. :satisfied: I have been searching the CBSA Memorandum (NRC) data base to find the threatened policy. It is nowhere to be found. I will be showing up to interview this expert and then climb the ladder and see if hunters can quit being extorted and start being treated fairly and equitably with a National policy.
