Hidden costs

I don’t care what you are buying, chances are there are some kind of hidden costs. Well the hunting world is no difference. You save and save for that great hunting trip you have been dreaming  of forever and now it’s time to go where ever you are going . All goes well during the hunt/ fishing trip but it’s when you are done with the adventure , they start to nickel and dime you on items that you thought were included in the adventure. Say you are hunting internationally and now you are bring some of your trophies to the taxidermist and now you find out that each one of those trophies are going to cost you money to have them dip and packed and also for the trophies to be delivered to him. I  have  had some clients skin out the game themselves  and cut the racks and still get nailed full cost even when the people at the taxidermist shop said they will give them a break on the cost—wrong . Then there are the gun fees, sales tax, air freight for the trophies, custom fees, broker fees,  etc.etc.., hell,in some parts of the world I swear they would charge you for the air you breath if they could !. So  when you go, make sure you ask all the questions, use a travel co. So they can go what they do the best like meet and greet at the airport, hotels and all the travel needs and also get all the names, numbers of who,what ,where so if something is not right, you can contact the people there  and then its time go to the taxidermist  like Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLC  and talk to them. We will answer all of those quetions and if we can’t, we will find them out for you and we will also give you the hunting pack which will have most of those questions answered plus all shipping tags for your trophies-2per critter so when they contact you from over there and ask what you want to do with these animals, you can say what you said when you dropped them off–ship them to the addresses on the tags and do nothing else !! (that is a famous line for some taxidermist ). So ask, ask and ask some more for there are always hidden cost and if it’s small things or just bad luck, then that’s just the way it goes but it’s better to be somewhat prepared. So save a little more money cuz you will be needing it…….
