  • Choosing the hunting organization for a safari in South Africa from a taxidermy prospective – Trophex Taxidermy
    can hang the hunted carcasses it is very bad if the carcasses lay on the floor in the blood There should be a separate room where the skins can get salted and after get hanged to dry The skins that are dried and folded should get stored in a separate room because you don t want blood on these skins again There should also be a refrigerated room to keep the meat If you are planning to hunt as a big group of hunters then one needs to have a very good look at these facilities Normally with a big group if every hunter hunts 2 animals for the day it means that 10 to 20 carcasses will be dropped off at the skinning shed and then one will need space and good facilities to manage these carcasses Tagging of trophies Your trophies need to be well tagged with a proper water and chemical resistant tag I feel that tagging trophies should be done by the professional hunter not the skinner and in the presents of the hunter A simple mistake and you can end up receiving the wrong trophy The Hunting Outfitter should also have a register book to keep record of how you would like your trophies to be skinned The hunting outfitter must be familiar with basic field preparations as follows From the time when the animal was hunted until the skin is salted it is VERY important if you don t want hair slip The taxidermy cannot be held responsible for any hair losses due to the fact that the bacteria that cause hair slip will penetrate the skin during the time it takes to get the animal from the field to skinning area and the skin salted Please see below some key aspects that need to be taken into account to prevent damages to your trophies Trophy care in the field Try to keep the trophy animal cool always put the carcass in the shade of a tree or cool area Remember that blood and heat are very bad for the skin Don t drag the animal around it will cause the hair to fall out Always load the animal head first Don t leave the animal lying in its blood You can take out the stomach just remember to wash the blood off NB Skin the trophy ASAP and salt the skin Who will be skinning the trophies and where did he get his training Skinning should be done by a trained professional A hunting or safari company must have a well trained skinner The Hunting outfitter must be able to proof that his Skinners are as good as his Professional hunters and trackers From my perspective are these skinners very important staff and a simple mistake can spoil your trophies for life Only a serious hunting outfitter will have good professional skinning staff because bad skinning work is the first thing that gets pointed out by the taxidermist because we don t want

    opinion is that we can do the same work as any other taxidermy around the world if one has the talent or the ability I don t feel that we are not equipped to do it If you manage to choose the right Taxidermy in South Africa I can assure you that you will receive very competitive mounts Comparing prices Taxidermies in South Africa manage to give very good prices on taxidermy work due to the exchange rate of the Rand and Dollar also the Rand and Euro Let s make a rough calculation on a normal hunting packet Impala Gemsbok Blue wildebeest Kudu Steenbok Common Duiker Dip and Pack option Dipping and packing 980 Export 900 Import charges Transportation too tannery Tanning of the skins 780 Transportation from tannery to taxidermy Mounting of your trophies 4800 Transport from taxidermy to you Total 7460 Taxidermy in South Africa option Mounting of your trophies 3518 Packing and admin 630 Export 2300 00 Import charges Transport to your house Grand total 6448 You can safe another 50 on the exporting if you do it by see freight that will bring the grand total to 5298 and then it really starts to make sense NB Please remember that these prices will defer from taxidermy to taxidermy I have just worked it out based on my own research and averages but I do advise you to make the same calculation Also remember that the exportation is calculated by the volumetric weight of the crate and that one can easily add another Zebra hide and even a small antelope like a Blesbok or a Klipspringer to this order and the exporting charges will stay the same If you are hunting as a group of friends you will also find that there are even more ways to get the trophies to you cheaper Risks in exporting Please visit my website to see how we pack mounted trophies it truly is safe I have experienced some minor incidence but there was nothing that we could not get fixed and the insurance covered all the expenses The real risk comes when you look at the route the trophies take to get to your home If you for example choose to dip and pack your trophies Then your trophies will need to go to a taxidermy and get dipped and packed After that it needs to go the customs in South Africa where nature conservation needs to check it again How do they do it well they unpack your crate and repack it Because one cannot see what is at the bottom of the crate if you don t unpack it Then it goes on the plane to your country and when it arrives customs need to check your crate again So they have to unpack and repack your crate again Then your crate goes to the tanning company and they need to unpack your crate and tan the skins When your skins are tanned all the trophies are
