Now we have been sitting in Chicago for 8 days so far. They say it is a code 2H, which means USDA inspection. Now multiply this with the CV19 factor. I hope the trophies are in climate control facilities.
any idea on extra charges concerning this?
Since I work in a Fedex facility I get to know a few things. 2H is the agriculture inspection hold code for CBP Agriculture inspection. CBP Agriculture does the USDA inspections. Same uniform as a CBP officer, different job. Anyway, it will be in a warehouse. How climate controlled is up to the warehouse. But it's probably as controlled if not more climate controlled than the ones in South Africa it was in. Eight days is long, seems to me something might be going on. Is their a baboon in the shipment? Then CDC would have to look it over. Just a guess. Hang in there.
Thanks, We have a zebra hide with head, gold wildebeast shoulder, gemsbok shoulder, impala European and a sable shoulder Mounts.
We had Limcroma’s taxidermist which is very good. Better than any taxidermist that we have used here in the US.
Just got a message from my broker. Just came off of hold. Now it has to travel to Memphis, F&W insp and we get to finally see our heads. I am excited, since they did not find my gemsbok while we were there. So I have only got videos. They eventually found it, since it split off immediately and they were looking farther away.
Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
