    Default importing trophies

    On my first hunts in Namibia, I had my trophies imported directly to my taxidermist here in the States. I never had anything to do with them until I picked them up after they were finished.
    My trophies from my most recent hunt in Zimbabwe, are to be finished in Zimbabwe.
    Is there anything I need to know relating to importing my finished trophies from Zim? Do I need an import broker to handle the paperwork? Should the shipper in Zimbabwe be familiar with the process?

    If you have not done it before I would certainly be asking who they might be using or suggest.
    You can handle the paperwork.
    A Broker certainly can cut down on the effort expended.

    I think Scott (Sestopelman) used Spherical and had reasonable success on his trophy repatriation.
