Who flew home from Alaska with meat and horns as checked bagage in 2011? Who did you fly with and did it go smoothly? Every year the airlines get more and more uptight about horns and meat. Back home here in Cleveland Ohio you can forget taking either on a flight out (techniqually you can but it is very likely whoever is checking you in is going to say "no" for some bs reason).
I see AK airlines says you can take a set of horns home, they must be reasonably cleaned cut in 1/2 (I think) points wrapped, etc and it costs $150 each. Did anyone run into problems? What did you do to prepare them. Do you think you coul have taken 2 sets of horns for the $150 or would they want $300?
What about meat, I would get a cooler/fish box and take 40#'s of meat.
Did anyone use a taxidermist (or someone else) to prep horns and ship them? I am not to keen on having to get a taxi, go to store, buy materials, find somewhere to prep horns/meat etc to fly it myself if it does not save quite a bit. I can easily see this taking 1/2 a day and being a pain. What did it cost to have the person prep/ship horns from a carbiou and moose (each)?
