Importing a European mount into Europe
I have some non-hunting friends from Poland that would like to know what procedures it entails to take home a Whitetail Deer euro mount that was gifted to them. Any ideas?
It's a heck of a lot more work and cost than you'd think. You will need a USDA taxidermist and an export agent. You'll have to write a letter of legal take, describing how, where and when the animal was killed and by whom. You'll also need an export broker/agent to file all the paperwork for you.
This process is ridiculous and slow as can be. I've exported several trophies to Poland. It's a tough exercise in patience.
Or you can just stick it in a duffle bag and play dumb if they find it. Just sayin’
HAHA Thanks Pat-this is a heavy metal band so I'm guessing they get checked enough as it is. LOL
Tell them it’s just a prop for their stage show!?
