Am I the only one, or does it seem like the dip and pack companies in Africa have a real scam going? After talking to a number of people about hunting in Africa they, to a person, stated that the dip and pack companies are a problem. After a great safari, for many of us a once in a life time deal, our trophies are given over to a nameless faceless company whose only objective seems to be to make as much money as possible. Charging $150 per animal to dip and pack is ridiculous. My trophies were put in a box that was way to large and cost several hundreds of dollars extra to ship to Alaska. They also sent me a tusk that was not from my warthog! It seems that when we try to deal with them all communication stops. We have no recourse. What can be done? How can this system be improved? It has left me with a very sour taste in my mouth!!!
