    Hi,

    I have read an article from africanhuntinggazette about a hunter name Wato from Australia but could not recall the issue number. I can get the issue number for you tomorrw if you want.

    From the article, I belive you will not be able to import elephant tusk into Australia.

    wahunter,
    I can tell you with absolute certainty that you can not import any elephant product what so ever in to Australia.

    Someone is always posing new questions on here and I appreciate the perspectives that other hunters bring to the table and the issues they have to address at home to be able to hunt. From this I get to learn just how lucky I am. Sorry for you mate.
