Shipping Your Trophies
For your convenience, we will prepare laminated shipping tags so that you can attach them to your hides and skulls for shipment to Backwoods Taxidermy. These tags will help keep your trophies properly identified for where you're hunting and help us identify the trophies when we check them in.
Trophies within the U.S.:
1. Be sure the items being shipped to us are properly preserved. (contact us for instruction)
2. Wrap salted hides in burlap or cloth. Plastic bags may cause irreparable hair slippage.
Please enclose the following:
➢ Full name
➢ Complete address
➢ Telephone number
➢ Hunting license number
➢ Email address
3. Make sure every package is carefully addressed and that your name and return address appears on the outside of each package.
