[portfolio_slideshow]Hunting Trophy Import
Using a Customs Broker is not required in the importing of your hunting trophies. However, it is highly recommended as there is a great deal of work involved as well as numerous documents that are required for the clearance of your trophies.
C & R Customs Brokers specializes in import clearance of all hunting trophies from around the world. Reducing the regulatory burdens to importing hunting trophies into the United States is one of our top priorities. C & R Customs Brokers works with both the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and through the Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) to reduce these burdens.
Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES): CITES regulates trade in protected species of wildlife, including the shipment of hunting trophies.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS): In addition to international CITES regulations, hunters attempting to import trophies to the United State are subject to stricter domestic measures that have been put into place under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). USFWS is the federal agency that regulates the importation of trophies and controls the movement of wildlife across borders.
