When The Memory Fades, The Trophy Lasts Forever
First and foremost, we’re hunters, too. Trophy Shippers understands what goes into planning the hunt of a lifetime because we’ve taken that trip. Every hunt is a unique experience that can grow outrageously complex as the process unfolds. Because we hunt, we understand that process; because we’re freight forwarders, we know how to get that process right and ensure your trophy arrives at your door promptly and perfectly. As a division of Edward J. Zarach & Associates, we’re dedicated to providing the best customer service and logistics solutions that are finely tailored to the needs of the hunter, the outfitter, and the taxidermist. We’ll use our decades of experience and first-hand expertise in trophy hunting to help you navigate, prepare, and execute the documentation element of your event. The only concern that you have is making the shot.


Testimonial
“As a lifelong hunter, nothing can ruin an experience as fast as confusion during the import process. We hunters need a strong team to navigate the red tape that seems to grow like a weed. Trophy Shippers understands the needs of hunters and can predict with uncanny accuracy the pitfalls of working with the federal government to prevent problems before they arise. I owe my success as a hunter to my keen eye and patience, but I owe my trophies to the steady hands of the remarkable team at Trophy Shippers.” ~ Scott Anderson, hunting enthusiast and Trophy Shippers customer.


5 Steps To A Successful Hunt

Paperwork Presentation
The first step to a successful hunt is always going to be information. Trophy shippers will need you to fill out some forms that enable us to act on your behalf such as a Power of Attorney. After you’ve filled out and signed the forms, we will need to know the animals you’re planning to hunt, the location, and time when your excursion is scheduled, and we have an easy contact form where you can fill in the blanks! A copy of your itinerary with guide details, flight information, location specifics, and duration listed should suffice.

Outfitter And Taxidermist Information
Trophy Shippers works as a team with your outfitter and taxidermist all throughout the process taking the stress off the hunter. We’ll coordinate the documentation and planning with your professionals well in advance and make sure all parties are up to date on providing you the finest service for the duration of the hunt.

Hunt!
We think this is the most important step you can take. You’ve reached out to Trophy Shippers to have an experienced and knowledgeable advocate in your corner and we’re here to do just that. We want you to live in the moment and have the hunt of a lifetime knowing that Trophy Shippers has everything covered. This time should be spent hunting and making memories, not worrying or checking in with us. We know what needs to be done; all you need to do is hunt.

International Shipments and Customs Clearance
We can handle the export and transportation to bring your animal back to the United States. Trophy Shippers is on hand to manage the customs clearances and any necessary inspections. We’ve built strong relationships with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the USDA, CDC and US Customs and Border Protection and are expertts at the regulations and processes necessary to ensure a smooth trophy import.

Domestic Delivery
From the airport / seaport to your taxidermist and from your taxidermist to your door, Trophy Shippers can handle the movement of your mount between any points to ensure its kept in pristine condition. Shippers can’t waste time with pickups and deliveries when it comes to a hunting trophy and we understand the urgency. Let Trophy Shippers keep your skins moving so they’re preserved perfectly from one point of the journey to the next.

GETTING YOUR TROPHY HOME

Planning a hunt can be exhilarating, exciting, exhausting and overwhelming. Everywhere you turn there’s another decision, another option, another choice and because we at Trophy Shippers are hunters ourselves, we understand these confusing times. Here we will discuss the question we hear most often, “How do I get my trophy back home after my hunt?”

If this is your first time overseas, work with your outfitter to choose a taxidermist. Your outfitter is an expert at matching hunters with a reputable taxidermist who is skilled in the game you’re hunting. Reputable, experienced taxidermists are familiar with the processes and regulations of bringing home a hunting trophy and your outfitter’s recommendation is often invaluable when planning. This is not an uncomplicated process and having a team with experience and knowledge working for you is the greatest preparation you can take.

Once you’ve chosen a taxidermist to handle your animal, Trophy Shippers will handle the rest. We will work directly with your taxidermist to review, validate, and expedite all paperwork, to help ensure a smooth process. Trophy Shippers can arrange pick up from the taxidermist, export, and international shipment of your crates and handle any and all customs clearances necessary. By taking the guesswork out of the mountain of bureaucratic red tape, Trophy Shippers ensures a smooth return of your trophy. We can also handle any domestic transportation needed from your nearest US Fish and Wildlife Port of Entry to the final destination, right up to your front door.

With Trophy Shippers in your corner, your main responsibility is to enjoy your hunt. These excursions are often once in a lifetime events that give the hunter and their compatriots a chance to enjoy a sportsman’s paradise and work together as a team. The memories you’ll make and the trophies you’ll bring home are the most important part of this hunt and Trophy Shippers cares for them with as much attention as it took for you to create them.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
