    I always wonder why I drag a huge bag of clothing along when I go hunting in various provinces in Southern Africa. Africa can be bloody cold. Looks just like home in the winter time.

    What a difference:

    Same elevation 10 months later. Just plain luck.

    I just received 39 pages of documentation for my trophies (several years/ safaris worth) travels to get home.
    Export permits, vet docs, CITES, invoices, etc.

    Looking forward to getting these trophies in their rightful spots.

    So, close.

    These are the same trophies that certain airlines won't carry because they don't want to contribute to poaching?

    Maybe if you'd had 62 pages of documentation, they'd be reassured.

    Not for Canada, but somehow seems appropriate here....

    Just discovered a few omissions after reviewing it all and will be adding to the list. At least four more pages to come. :)

    Nothing is slipping by in this process for sure. The airlines can rest easy. Oh yeah, I get to avoid all the airlines that have placed these stupid :S Censored: embargoes with this shipment. :A Banana:

    This baby has to go through the EU to get here. I do not want to know about the number of pages of crap they require. That one is out of my hands. Thankfully.

    Turns out, it was seven more pages that were required to complete the bail.
    Three CITES permits are all in place and in hand.

    "We would like to confirm that we have received payment, thank you.
    Formal notification of your flight details are to follow soonest."


    Oh, so close. I won't start:E Dancing: yet though.

    the essential things are always simple.
    And at Pythagoras time (over 500 years before Christ) no one had to bring 28 Nations under one hat (in peace).
    Its a fine job for the EU-Commisioneers.Sure and very well paid :-(
    But I tell you, its much less complicated to visit Europe as a hunter with a gun ,than the USA.

    I have final an Airwaybill Number and flight numbers. I woke up to find it in my email. Yeah!

    The trophies are sitting in Luxembourg as I write this. One leg down.

    Then they get the joy of touring Scotland, Los Angeles, Seattle and finally home.

    Apparently nothing has changed in the CFIA process, same fees and notifications.

    Looking forward to this.

    Glad to see those Barnes TTSXs are catching on for Africa. Used them in a 300 WSM 180grains for plains game, worked perfect and have found a sub-MOA load gor thise 250 grainers in my 375 Ruger.

    I use nothing but TTSX in every rifle now. They get the job done.

    My stuff is actually in the same time zone, for the next ten minutes. Soon to land at LAX.

    Only 7.5 hours before it is scheduled to arrive at my airport!
