Wow, I wonder why they shipped ours in cheap cardboard, no screws, I think there may have been tape though. I am just passing along the information to possibly spare one of our hunting friends a stressful post safari experience. take it for what it's worth. Good Hunting!we used karoo for a hunt in 2013 and couldn't be more pleased with the service and quality. the people we delt with were of great help through out the whole process and with all the screws we pulled out of our wooden crate we could have built a small deck. we plan on using them again.
