    I’m going to wait to apply for mine, I don’t want it to expire before I can get it out of Zimbabwe! My mind is so clear and relaxed after getting that huge leopard.

    Man, I can’t believe how quickly things are progressing along. I posted recently how I received my import tag from USFW in less the 3 months. Yesterday I received an email notification that my capes etc were ready to be picked up and to send money for crate,flight etc. Crate will clear customs in Baltimore airport and then onto my taxidermist in Pennsylvania.

    Got an email from my shipper in Namibia yesterday told me MET told him the permits will be issued next week and export of capes ,horns will begin. I’m very surprised on again how quickly everything is moving forward.

    Moving right along! Cities permit received on the African side. Vet permit will be in hand early next week. I’m again very surprised this process came together so quickly.

    Unbelievable! I wonder if it’s just because Namibia tries to help hunters out? RSA is like watching frozen molasses!

    Right! Just amazing it got here so quickly! I’m still waiting on Limpopo to approve a civet from 2018!
    Namibia must be much better about CITIES approvals.

    . Not only has the cities process gone well in Namibia but to get the cities permit here in only 3 months really surprised me. I think it helped that my PH is best friends with the owner of Kings Taxidermy so dip and pack too went quickly.

    To be honest everything except communication I like. I send emails and rarely get one back. Leave phone messages with the same response.
