    Wow. Almost 4 1/2 years later and Werner hasn't made it to that Internet cafe or back home to his office computer to respond. Hmmmm.

    SOUTH AFRICA: Motshwere Safaris In Limpopo

    That's what we figured, too, when we arrived. It's what we were led to believe after arrival that ended up causing problems later. And, as I said in my original post, everything was awesome until we figured out he had been effectively deceived. Werner was funny, personable, engaging. His wife...

    Newbie taxidermy questions...

    Thanks, Dennis. If I have any more questions, I will PM or email you. Matt, the shipping tags were collected by the outfitter, at the end of the hunt, and I never actually saw them put on the animals. Guess that's another lesson learned. Thanks for the info. Heaney

    SOUTH AFRICA: Motshwere Safaris In Limpopo

    Enysse, Thanks. The actual price list wasn't the issue. We knew ahead of time that "non-package" animals would cost us. It was what we were led to believe after we arrived. It was that we were lead to believe we could take animals that were not part of our package and that we were no incurring...

    He's a helluva salesman. But, in my opinion, a dishonest one. Didn't figure it out until too late.
