    looking at your brokers fees there bob its alot cheaper than bringing trophies home to australia
    that box of goodies of your wuold cost around $2400 to$ 2800 aussie dollars, and on top of that you would have declare what the taxidermy cost and then pay 10% g.s.t(goods and services tax)
    on top of that .
    my wife and daughter last year went to new zealand and between them 7 trophiesanimals and to dip and pack them and crate em with vet certificates and ship across the the tasman was 940 aussie dollars and to import in throuigh customs with broker fees and thier little side charges came to 1670$

    Thanks Trond the Nyala is now my favorite and no the warthog may not be handsome but you have to admit they look better dead then alive.:wink:

    when you get ready to go for the other three let me know maybe we can make it a 2x1 deal. Bob

    Wow Bob, those are great, and you got them mounted and home in about the same time as it took to get my skins and horns that I shot last July in South Africa to the tannery here in Montana that my taxidermist uses.

    Thanks, thats the reason I get mine done in South Africa they were actually done on the 15 of Dec but South Africa has the nerve to take a holiday while I'm waiting on my Trophies can you believe that. LOL the sad part is here in the states depending on tannery and taxidermist you could still have a year or more before there on your wall. be sure to post some pics when you get them, what animals did you get?

    Looks great Bob! That's quite a trophy wall. I particularly love the wildebeests with their tails pegged to the wall!

    Thanks JN those came as a surprize to me when I did the hunt for them I told them I wanted the tails tanned so I could show my friends the difference in them Cecil not only tanned them he put handles on them like the fly swaters you see in those old African movies.
