So, I have planned a first-time safari to the RSA next May for plains game. I think I have a handle on the cost for the safari itself, and I have identified a great taxidermist here in the states and know what that will cost. I'm trying to get a handle on what it will cost to prepare my trophies in the RSA, ship them to the states and get them trough customs to the taxidermist. I'm not looking for precise figures, just ballpark so I know what to budget. FYI I will be hunting in Kwazulu Natal and I (along with my taxidermist) am located in SW Missouri. My son and I plan to ship back 6-8 plains trophies, all shoulder mounts (capes). Any advice?
