The Expediting Process

Once you have completed your hunt, you must fill out an Expediting form which has all the details that is required.  The Outfitter / Safari Park that you choose to hunt with has this form and will provide you with them to complete before you go home. 

When we have received your trophies, we will send you an introduction email stating the trophies you have harvested and confirming all your details.  This is the time for you to confirm with us that the details we have are correct and provide us with any additional information that we may require.

Then the processing of your trophies starts.  This involves head skin prepping, fleshing and salting of skins and boiling and cleaning of antlers. Your skins will be sent dry-salted and can be tanned by your taxidermist or tannery when they receive them.

During this time, we organize all the appropriate paperwork / permits, and complete the shipping and freight documentation. 

Our crates are made from quality plywood and are very sturdy.  They are custom built to the dimensions of your antlers, so you are not paying for any un -used space.  The crate is strong, and able to withstand the numerous stops that it has on its journey.

We will advise you when we have completed your shipment, and once we have received payment, your crate will be sent to Auckland International Airport and it will be booked on a flight through our shipping company GVI Logistics Ltd.

Your shipment will be sent to a Designated US Fish & Wildlife Port that is closest to your Taxidermist / Tannery.  Once it reaches there, it will need to be cleared through Customs.  We highly recommended that you use a broker to do this.  For more information on brokers and the shipping process please refer to the Brokerage & Freight. 

The whole process from when we receive your trophies until they are shipped to the nearest Designated US Fish & Wildlife Port will take approximately 12 weeks.
