Same - I was thinking of a brown hippo jumper on the 363 mod and there's only one full side with a little scarring left. Recommendation was to do a toe cap. Price was ~1500 (1050 for jumpers + 20% MTO upcharge + 200 CITES).I been waiting for a hippo makeup. But with CITIES and me being in the California. Its just not worth the work/costs. Otherwise definitely would have copped a hippo makeup
Grey market usually ... I would strongly advise against that. You ll support illegal hunting. I don't think EB is going to work with hides that have the smallest of chance to come from illegal hunting.Is it any faster if you can secure your own hide? I have family who regularly travels to Africa. Also, I think you can also purchase hides that have been through the import hoops at the safari shows.
Maybe, but the DSC show typically has lots of hides being sold by licensed PHs who deal with CITES exportation all the time for their hunting clients. At least they did this year when I was at DSC. Hunting hippos is entirely legal with the country-appropriate license.Grey market usually ... I would strongly advise against that. You ll support illegal hunting.
