If you deal with flaky 3rd world countries, the results can be just as flaky.

Back in '86, I led a diving expedition into central Andros Is Bahamas. San Andros/Stafford Creek area. One of the members wanted to shoot dove for dinner, so we went down the process of getting a 12 gauge legally onto the island. We had to engage the Police Commissioner, and ultimately had a signed document for the gun.

Fast forward a month or so to the customs arrival date; and we proudly presented both the shotgun and the signed paper. The customs officer equally proudly announced our paperwork was no good, since that Police Commissioner was no longer in power. What to do, what to do. It took some extra pocket $ to make this work.
We did eat dove, not sure they were worth the effort.
