    Does anyone know what shipping costs would approximate be to ship 3 shoulder mounts and 4 European mounts? These have not been sent to the taxidermist. I am having it done in the US

    We just had two shipments arrive from last seasons hunts in Zimbabwe. They were between $1300-$1700 between shipping and customs clearing costs.

    Our 2009 trophies shipped in early 2010 from RSA. If I recall, we paid around $1500 air-shipped to Houston for two crates which contained at least 17 skulls and capes for shoulder mounts, 4 flat skins plus at least 6 backskins. There was a few hundred dollars more for customs and other fees.
