Over the course of the years, when it comes to stories of negative experiences that I have heard from hunters, by far more issues arise from hunting trophy shipping and importation. The challenges of getting all of the paperwork details in order and getting hunting trophies back home is more challenging than the hunt. Today more than ever before you have to dot your i's and cross your t's, (and hope everyone else involved in the process has too). It is daunting even for me to keep up with all the different laws and changing regulations and requirements in the many countries from where you hunt to where you live. I have long believed that it is well worth your while to hire experts to help you navigate this process. Not only will you save yourself a lot of time, hassle and stress but more importantly you will avoid the MANY obstacles, compliance issues and complications that you can encounter during the process of importing your hunting trophies. And most importantly you will reduce the risk that your trophies may be delayed, lost or confiscated.

As any of you who have spent any time on here well know I strive to make AfricaHunting.com the best hunting site and resource for hunting in Africa and abroad. I want all of you to have access to the very best people and companies to work with, as well as reliable information and advice from those who really know what they are talking about. For this reason I am happy to announce that Tom Kelly from TROPHY SHIPPERS (www.trophyshippers.com) along with their team have joined AH as our recommended hunting trophy shipping and importation specialist.

I’ve had Trophy Shippers quite busy lately. They have cleared my Cameroon shipment which was complicated because it goes to Paris and then all the paperwork is redone to ship. They are working on my Namibia shipment that is coming this week and they cleared my rhino just before Biden raised his right hand in January 20th!
The Namibia and South African shipment were a complete circus. I am sure Tom is going to be very tired of me after all of this! Complete, raw incompetence at every level in Namibia and South Africa as it relates to export paperwork and shipping. The childish excuse making, lack of foresight, and the inability to see a better way to do business shocks me! I am so thankful I have Trophy Shippers, who answer the phone and email, to help me though all of this.
Thanks @TROPHY SHIPPERS

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
