    Default Importing Your Leopard or African Elephant Trophy

    bee keeper, Taking a trophy Elephant bull does not mean that you can export the tusks home. Note also that permits and importation procedures of sport hunted trophies are different from country to country, so one needs to look into the regulations pertaining specifically to where the sport hunted trophy will be imported...

    The attached pdf file from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service called Importing Your Leopard or African Elephant Trophy should answer your question.

    Feel free also to check out the following article for further information: Permits & Importation Procedures for Sport Hunted Trophies.

    If the Elephant is exportable from the country where it was taken and if it can be imported back in the country where it is to be exported to, most hunters will of course bring back the tusks as their trophy, and for some hunters the "trophy" to be brought back home may also comprise of the skull, bones, feet, tail and/or skin.
