The 5 Steps to the Importing Process

No matter how you spin, importing is dreadful. There’s the planning, the waiting, the unknowns, the uncertainty. You are here and your trophies are there. A thousand questions buzz through your mind: Did I trust the right people? What happens next? Did I do everything I could do? Will it turn out all right? Should I have gotten my trophies done in Africa?

Just like many things in life, it helps to know you are not alone. For both the novice and well-seasoned veterans, the importing process can be quite daunting. It helps to understand the three to eight month process of how your trophies get from the harvested country to your taxidermist.

Let’s take some time to go over the different steps which occur after you’ve hunted your trophies.

1 – Skinned & Salted

2 – Dip & Packing

3 – Crated & Shipped

4 – Inspections & Import

5 – Shipping & Receiving

The different steps show you the process, but it’s the pre-planning that will save you a lot of pain from a possible headache. As soon as you have booked a hunt, contact Kanati Studios.
