International shipments (Canada, Mexico, overseas)

When shipping from overseas we advise all of our clients to use a customs broker. We recommend Hunter-International, contact them before your next safari or overseas hunt. They will take care of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service paperwork as well as tracking your shipment.

If you are traveling across the common border of Canada or Mexico with your trophies make sure that you get all of your animals checked at the border and declare them to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service by filling out a 3-177 form of importation as well as filling out a CA declaration upon entering the state. If you have any questions please contact us at (805) 472 2200.
