Hello all, I have been lurking on this page for sometime reading hunt reports and just gathering information. This page is a wealth of information!
I am from the Appalachian Mountains and planning my first African hunt next year. I want to hunt Namibia, with primary target animals being Kudu, Gemsbok, and Hartmann Zebra.
I was wondering if I would have any problems get the zebra skin back to the States if I was fortunate enough to harvest one?

Welcome aboard Hookboy88. I had no trouble getting my Zebra imported to the States from South Africa. However if you want to be sure contact Laura Durbin at D & L Customs Brokers. All skins, capes , horns etc. coming from Africa need to go through a clearing house. You will find that AH is an excellent resource. You can get straight forward answers from guys that have been down the road you want to travel.

I thought the "mountain zebra"forgot the official name, was illegal to import into the U.S.
No?

Welcome to AH. You’re right, if you have any questions, there are a lot of people on this forum that have “been there, done that” and are more than willing to assist.
I’m not sure about the zebra, but as Shootist43 suggests, get in touch with D&L. They handled the importation on my first safari. It went off without a hitch.

Hartmann's Zebra = Mountain Zebra, last I looked it was no problem bringing them in.

Hartmanns Mtn Zebra is a CITES animal.

Common name: Hartmann's Mountain Zebra
Scientific name: Equus zebra hartmannae
CITES listing: Appendix II

Yes as long as you have the proper hunting permits to obtain a CITES export permit to import it back to the US. The export of hunting trophies of species listed in Appendix I or II should be conditional upon issuance of a CITES export permit.

Attached pdf doc: Trade in hunting trophies of species listed in Appendix I or II

Welcome aboard. Just thinking out loud, after your hunt, you'll probably want to change your username to Hookedboy88. ;)

Haha! Even in the planning stages I am more excited than any other Hunt I have done yet. Been a dream since I was a little boy to hunt Africa. And I acknowledged the fact if I don’t go now then it will just be one of those “One day I will” things.

Welcome to AH! You should have no problems exporting any of the animals you are looking for in Africa.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
