My brother and I will be hunting in southern France for Red Stag in October, I just got the quote from them for there shipping quote and it seams pretty steep on all the extra fees like 300 euro per animal to crate and then charging per animal for each step of the process is this normal? Or should I try to find a different taxidermist there?
 
Just a guess, but it's likely your animal(s) will be on one set of paperwork and your brother's on a separate set of paperwork. So yes, there are many charges along the way and they do tend to add up.

Some countries allow all the animals to be listed under one name, if it's a father/son or father/daughter type of hunt.
 
Does $300 include them boiling and cleaning the skull? That’s not that bad if it does. How many are you planning to shoot?

It’s the US that requires them shipped separately. A hunter can legally do it for an under 18 son or daughter but that’s it. However, a non-cites animal like a red stag would be very easy to list under 1 name if 1 hunter would claim both.
 
Planning on 1 stag 1 chamois 1 roe deer my brother will just be hunting 1 stag and the part that is bothering me is the little fees per animal not total like xray, pick up fee drop off fee plus shipping per animal not total

I realize how hard the bug has bit. I’m on the cusp of safari #2 and I’m looking to plan #3 with my 11 year old a year from now while looking at my work schedule for overtime and computing the math of how many shifts are needed….
