we just recieved our animals as part of a large group that hunted r.s.a. last year. the animals came in country through calgary. we then had the luck of getting an anti hunting women for a canadian customs officer to clear our trophys. customs inspected the crates, which, by the way was 6 crates of 180 animals. they found a bug, and threatened to send the shipment back to r.s.a. our broker intervened and had the crates fumigated. then they would not release the animals until we payed taxes on trophy fees. toal cost of taxes was 3,800.00 and fumigation charges were 3,200.00 this was hard to swallow after the cost of dip and pack as well as shipping. fortunately, everything arrived in great shape and i am now waiting on taxi work. so i would recommend avoiding calgary as a point of entry for your shipments. we have appealed the taxes and are waiting on that. i find it bizarre that i can be taxed on my safari after returning home.

I'm real sorry to hear of your troubles, bugs in crates...not good. I'd like to hear Skyline's response to your thread...ask for his two cents. More taxes never good.

Hello,
Unfortunately, bugs are not all that unusual- we always advise hunters to open their crates outside or in a garage.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
