    Let me clarify. Whatever your safari costs, add that for taxidermy over there plus shipping, CITES and import handling costs.
    I did a package the first year for 5k and it was another 5k for the mounts' expenses, 10k total.

    You can ABSOLUTELY do better than Hogpatrol's numbers with some pre-planning. I will get some exact numbers later (I am on the cell right now).

    But three very quick ways to reduce costs: 1) Don't shot an animal that requires a CITES permit. Warthogs are cute in an ugly way...but they REALLY complicate it if you chose step 2. 2) Clear your own trophies. This easy to do if you are within a day drive of an entry port. 3) Shot less trophies...seriously! I intentionally chose to shoot less animals...and I thought better animals...to reduce taxidermy and shipping cost. You might be able to shoot three smaller animals...including one of those dann warthogs (or a free baboons-more CITES) for the same trophy cost as a kudu. But, three mounts...will cost more and take up more space (which is usually more important in calculating shipping costs) than the kudu.

    PS A Zebra rug REALLY saves taxidermy and shipping costs vs similar trophy fee priced plains game.

    Lots of info and entertainment here. This forum does not have all the bickering that a lot of them do. Everyone is respectful of everyone else's opinion.

    Thank you! I think your name is Lori if Im not mistaken.
    An USA rep for a sponsor already pinned many roses on you and your abilities to find great airfare.
    I will def keep you in mind when I get all my ducks in a row.
