Welcome to the forum Jonathan, you are in the right place!
Hi Jonathan, welcome to AH !
Welcome to the dark side, you have picked a great place to begin your quest. Enjoy the journey.
Welcome Jonathan! You can find anything you want to know about hunting in Africa on this forum. It's all here, just have to learn to use the site!
Yes I am learning little by little. Thanks!
Welcome to AH.
Good luck .
Welcome to AH! You will find a solid knowledge base here!
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.
