Got the call from Terry Wagner on Monday that my stuff was ready for pickup at the Delta Air Cargo office at SeaTac airport south of Seattle. Called them and also Fish and Wildlife and setup a time to do all the baloney for today, Tuesday. Drove down to Delta, got the paperwork, drove up the hill to F&W and Customs, let them do their paperwork, drove back to Delta, gave it all to them, paid the $50 storage, loaded my box and left. Piece of cake, third time I have cleared my own trophies. Now of course no CITES animals, or pigs were involved which simplifies things no end. All I had was two skulls, cleaned and bleached and one flat skin rug, the gnu. All nicely done by Colletts Taxidermy in Bulawayo. Glad thats all over with.

My experiences in Seattle also. F&G is upstairs from Customs and they go out of the way to make things easy. No $800 paperwork charge from a broker either.

They shuffled things around since last I was there at the office I was at up the hill from Delta Cargo. F&W is in another bldg so had to walk a short distance from it to Customs. No big deal, both were helpful and easy to deal with. Like you say, save some bucks as well.

That is a nice story to read.
Wish there was more to clear for you but, as you say, at least you got that over with!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
