I just got thinking, the dried drips may be from the insecticide solution as well. Some latex gloves may be in order when washing them.
Look forward to your pictures of all your "presents" and a good story.
Canadian Shipping agent called today about picking it up. Something must be happening.
I packed Kraft's (repaired) mount up into the original crate and it was picked up on October 27th at my door for repatriation to Germany and hopefully onward to its rightful owner.
Apparently mine is headed my way and the Canadian shipping agent said it would be about three weeks.
They are handling everything required to get my trophy here. I await the email or phone call.
The other dust up will be with the original shipping agent, as he is about to get my bill for repairing the first mount.
After initially summarily dismissing the damage as "superficial" I have had no further discussions.
Other than his demand for more money.
I reviewed the shipping documents and I have noted that I paid him for insurance on the shipment.
I now wonder why he did not direct me in how to make a claim for the damage?
I'll let you know how this one turns out too.
