First, your trophies will be skinned, salted, and transported to an agent of your choice. For mounting trophies, we suggest you do it in Africa. Remember, it takes time, at least 18 months, before you will get it. This is, however, the cheapest option since you do not have to pay dip and ship and then taxidermy charges back home. The negative side is that you do not have control over your artwork as you would with a taxidermist close to you. You could also start accumulating funds, as your final bill will only be approximately 14 to 18 months after leaving Africa. The alternative is Dip & Ship, which is much quicker, about 6 months until you have it in the USA. It is more expensive because you have it dipped and shipped, and then taxidermy only takes place back home. However, you could do your mounts later when you have funds available. You could also control the taxidermy work since it is close by. In general, you save about a (3rd) 33% to 50% BY doing it in South Africa.
