Good Hunting ........ Dan Lewis, Taxidermist
Most guides / outfitters know how to prepare your trophy. Below are some guidelines for all hunters & fishermen to use.
Transport / Shipping Hunting or Fishing Trophies in the US:
Wrap trophy in plastic.
Insulate with 2 - 3 inches of paper is prefered
Mark box "Perishable" & use next day air or overnight.
Contact Backcounty Taxidermy so we know when to expect your shipment.
Make sure hide / cape has dried completely, eyes, lips, and ears have been turned, and all excess meat has been removed from the hide.
DO NOT wrap in plastic! Place the hide /cape in the box by itself or wrap in paper or burlap.
Skullcaps of large antlers can be split to allow for easier shipping.
Wrap antlers with packing to protect them during shipping.
Use pieces of cut up garden hose over the tines to prevent the tines from poking out the box.
