Crate.jpg
after a long wait i finally have my crate back from my aug hunt with pawprints loaded on my truck! I want to tell ya my experience in clearing myself... called usfw once tracking showed it was at bwi. They were very easy and helpful, when i got there this morning all paper work was ready to go all i had to do was sign my name ok so less them a minute there. Now go across hall to customs, no prob sign in had to wait for a officer to walk out of back room waited 20mins he came grabbed my paper work from usfw went to back room and back out no more then 2 mins later. Told me where to go to pick up my crate from delta cargo 30sec drive there. Go in show ID cut a check and am told what dock to back up to. In and out of there in less then 5 mins. So what i can say is use a reputable dip and pack company and shipper and clear the shit yourself!!! It was so easy!! Thanks to swiftdip and safari cargo communication was excellent and prompt they had everything in order. Cant wait to open crate later! Hope all teeth are still in my giraffe skull!!

I'm glad she's still there, she told me 2 years ago that she was going to retire soon. Those two make clearing your own stuff so easy, it's almost a pleasure. Apparently not that way at other locations.

Glad it all went so well and so fast. Sometimes I think some people make it harder then it would be by how they may act. Sound like you just let it happen and in no time it was done and good for you. Looking forward to seeing the work when done and then we can start make the plans to get back and hunt some more.

Man, this is good to know. I'm going BWI next time. The Delta operation at Hartsfield leaves a lot to be desired and I won't even go near the stories I have about the Philly loading dock.

Everything looked good! Giraffe had all teeth. Kudu horns didnt look over boiled! "Beast" teeth missin a couple but not needed anyways! Hides will hit tannery in next couple weeks. Then when they come back kudu is first on list. My taxidermist will do 2/3 at a time so just gotta make my mind up on what to do at same time as the 60"er..

Jerry and I have been best friends for over 30 years, I live just a few miles down the road from him. So you want to hunt Eiders with Capt. Len, you will have a ball with him, that's for sure. My son and I are looking into hunting Eiders in Greenland next year, if we pull that off Jerry will have a bunch more work.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
