International Shipments

We are a U.S.D.A. certified institution and a licensed importer/exporter through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. We can assist you in getting your trophies cleared through the various government agencies and all of their confusing paperwork. We work very closely with a couple brokerage firms and have had very good success clearing international shipments with very little hassle. Contact us and we can provide you with the necessary paperwork, before you or your client’s hunt, to make the importation of trophies much easier.

International shipments should be addressed to us and include both the hunter’s and the taxidermists name. Unless otherwise instructed we will assume that the hides will be dry tanned upon arrival.
