    I would goto the taxidermy section of this website and do some research....I think there is a company called "Dip and Pack" and a lot of people use them...they guarantee your stuff is done in like 90 days. Anyway do some research....and get a quote.

    We have been working with Trophy Pro SA for the last 4 years and I will recommend them anytime.

    I had good luck with Swift Dip. Natasha provided excellent service and superior communications.

    She personally mounted these warthog tusks for me in order that they become a "finished" trophy and I could take direct receipt from the airport of the shipment.

    happy hunting, dv

    Another vote for Swift Dip. Natasha was very helpful every step of the way, including coordination of a European mount of my warthog to avoid having to ship to a USDA taxidermist.

    As far as importer, I worked with Coppersmith out of Chicago - Michael Lewis was our contact there and he was very helpful as well. We had some issues with our paperwork surrounding the warthog and he was able to deal with it and correct the situation. Was worth the extra price in my opinion to have someone involved who knew what to do if something went wrong.

    We just used Splitting Image Taxidermy on a recent trip to Eastern Cape and they were incredible to deal with. Fastest turnaround we've ever seen.
