Anyone out there ever shipped US hunting trophies TO Africa? I took a friend from Africa hunting in Alaska. Now I need to ship his Brown Bear (CITES) rug to Namibia. USFWS gave me a good line on how to get the paperwork done but does anyone have experience with the logistics of it?
You might want to reach out to Knight’s Taxidermy. I am quite sure Russell can either handle the exporting process or point you towards the right direction.

Alternatively you could contact either Coppersmith (Seattle office) or Trophy Shippers.

Also this is just for your reference from Alaska Fish and Game re: exporting trophies out of Alaska.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
