    I am new to all this. I am currently I. The process of getting my first hunting trip out to SA.
    Got a few questions for you boys that have done this before.
    What is dip and pack. What sort of cost is it.
    I am wanting to do mostly euro mount and hides.
    The only trophy I would like to get shoulder mounted is a kudu bull.
    Does any know of the price to tan the hides or am I better getting someone over here to do that. Ie Scotland
    Sorry one more.
    How do I get them shipped out here
    Thanks for you time cheers
    Alan

    D&P is treating the raw hides, skulls (dried) and packing them to be sent to you.
    This allows your taxidermist to do the work at home.

    This can be done at either end of the shipping.

    If that is what you want, thats what you'll get.


    Processing hides into rugs or leather can be arranged by any of the good taxidermists in RSA.
    Look them up and ask for current prices.
    Sometimes local tanners will not do some hides. ie. buffalo.


    There are plenty of shipping companies providing this service in RSA.
    Research threads on shipping.

    good luck.
