Costs change on a daily basis. Destinations and airlines change the whole game as well.
Take this for what it is worth.

This amount relates to the following trophy list.
Pongola to JNB Crating and cartage. There are five crates in the shipment.
For those in the US, you are no longer allowed to combine hunters shipments from my understanding. We still can. This was a combined shipment for 7 hunters, covering three countries, 8 Outfitters and 3 years.
118 trophies in all.

Final shipping JNB to YYC Airfreight.
I will do my own clearing for the shipment. It takes me, at the outside, two hours time, including driving to pick the trophies up. (Just proximity) I know the CFIA vets name and they have always been great.
I have already reviewed the export docs and invoices and everything is in order, as far as my rookie eyes are concerned.

Further costs we can expect:
  1. Fee per crate (I assume) for CFIA inspection It was $25.00 last go round.;
  2. a fee for the airline warehouse unloading the shipment from the plane Count on $60.00;
  3. GST (Tax on taxidermy, invoices accompanying shipment minus our personal exemption of $800 for each 7 day trip outside the country. I'll get a $1600.00 exemption on this shipment. )

It has been interesting. I have shared camps with these friends for a lot of years.
Putting them together was just to save some money for folks who only had a few trophies.

Just picked up a crate at YYC this morning. One being disinfected. Cost of shipping both was around $2,000 US, so not far off what you paid.

All things considered, not a lot of actual shoulder mounts (42 give or take of 118 animals) in the pile. I assume more mounts would have equaled more volume, more crate, weight etc and thus slightly higher shipping.
Glad to see they are headed home- look forward to seeing the pics of the finished product.

After having been there and done that, I cut back and was not shoulder mounting everything I took or there would be more.

Only 42 shoulder mounts. That's funny.
Bigger and more mounts means more volume and certainly more cost.

We visited Bullseye Taxidermy during my PH course. I saw this in his office and that was it. Simple elegant and shows the trophy off really well. I have great pictures of the fur in the computer. :)

In the end I am not sure just how happy the taxidermist was. Johannes remounted several after I noted the capes were not acceptable at all. We'll see the result when they are in some Canadian sunshine.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
