      I will be travelling and staying in Dubai for a day and night at the end of next month and was wondering what the process is. I'm assuming it involves having security or the police keep the weapon but I was curious as to your experience. Any info on you could provide would be appreciated. Rick.

        Hey Rick! I'm not sure about what to do since you're staying a day and a half. Both times I flew thru Dubai my firearms were kept by Emirates. The first time I had a ten hour layover and they put us up in a hotel. I would see if they could check them thru in your instance too?

        Thank you. It looks like they will hold on to them for the duration of the quick stay. Thank again.

      70 mounts? Yikes!

      I guess you have quite a frame of reference to work from!

      Thanks for the feedback. I will definitely add Bullseye to my short list.

      All else being roughly equal, I would like to have them mounted in RSA to support the local economy. I know a lot of guys say that is crazy...that you lose control. But there surely are folks in RSA who do a good job...

      Hi Wes

      I was reading your post regarding your satisfaction with Bullseye Taxidermy. Their prices seem very competitive with Karoo and others in the EC.

      All else being equal, a personal testimony is worth a lot...

      I figure I am going to be spending $8k more or less on taxidermy and shipping...I really don't want to make a stupid mistake.

      Sounds like you would use them again?

      Thanks for any feedback!

        Hey Tim,
        Have have nothing but good things to say about Craig and Bullseye. I have over 70 mounts in my home from four different taxidermist I'ved used over the years. (including Bullseye) I consider Craig's work to be right at the top with the other US taxidermist that I have used. Where it really pays off is when you have life sized mounts done.. I trust Bullseye. To me that is "priceless".
