    Early booking or last minute?

    I agree you can get some unbelievable deals on last minute cancellations. The problem that I have is scheduling off from work for 2 weeks without a lot of notice. Guys with flexible schedules or are retired can definitely take advantage of the great deals.

    Frugal Hunter

    Great advice so far. The shipping is what will get you. I paid 6600.00 to get my finished work home from SA in shipping and to clear (10 trophies finished work). It was my first time over so glad I did it but will really think about what to do with trophies on second hunt. My advice would to...

    Hunting multiple buffalo

    Thanks for the replies. Good information. I should have been more specific. Tanzania is going to be out of my budget. Been looking at Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. If only one buff makes sense might do a buff/eland combo. Outfitter suggestions in those countries you guys have hunted with...

    Am I being scammed? Import into Toronto

    Yes sir I paid 200.00 a day waiting to clear customs. I was expecting it though. Trophy Shippers gave me warning. Worst thing that can happen is your trophies make it in Friday afternoon and sit until Monday over the weekend. 4 days 200 per day.

    Mounts on the wall

    I have 3/4 inch plywood behind the wall. I just mounted them on a large bolt. I really didn’t plan out I picked my mounts off the taxidermist website with the form that I liked and then when they arrived mounted them on the wall.

    Mounts on the wall

    Yeah I agree but knew they were coming. Trophy shippers warned me about them and they are out of his control until they clear. I would be ok at 50/per day or something reasonable. Two hundred a day a little excessive.
