This is the kind of stuff that has me worried. My fiished trophies are sitting at the shipper now. I got the first email from shipper on the 9th of March. He informed me that he picked up the trophies but the export permits where expired. He said it would take a couple of weeks to get them re-issued. So on April 4th I got the email that they got the new permits. Problem is they only issued one export permit for our two Impala. So here I am the 27th of April still missing a permit. Shipper said on the 24th that the SA Conservation Dept. has issued the new permit. They are just waiting for the authorized person to sign off on the permit. As soon as this happens he will pick up the permit. Now the only other question I have is, I have not paid the shipper. I dont feel that I should pay him until he has "everything" ready to be sent including the permit? Am I wrong?
