Tips for Preserving Your Trophy
It is important to protect the animal skin from damage and decay so that your trophy looks as lifelike as possible. Here are some tips for preserving your trophy until it can be delivered to our shop:
Skin out the animal, removing as much fat and flesh as possible. If you are going to bring the animal within a day, the head can be left unskinned, as we will skin and flesh it out here. After the hide is removed apply large quantities of salt, especially to the claws and around the head. Keep cool if possible until ready to be shipped.
All specimens should be carefully and properly labeled; please enclose a letter of instructions.
For Return Shipping
We ship out all specimens in a solid wood crate to insure that your trophy will arrive in perfect condition.
Raw Fur: All skins or hides of fur-bearing animals or game animals must be accompanied by an export permit.
Secure packaging is a must and the label should read, "Rush Perishables" and do request the courier service to phone when the shipment reaches its destination, as someone will be on call after hours.
Important: Do not ship raw furs via parcel post; only skins that have been stretched and dried may be transported in this manner.
