Question: I hired a trapper to trap my property and he gave me the raw fur, can I send it in?
Answer: No. The proper way to do this is to have the licensed trapper or wildlife control specialist send the fur to us in his name. Then he may give you the dressed fur and you may pay him for the tanning.
Question: A friend of mine gave me some skins as a gift; may I send them in with his license and information?
Answer: No. The harvester of the wildlife must be the one who sends in the fur. Then he may give you the dressed skins.
Question: I purchased some raw fur and in my state it is not required to have a fur buyer's license if the skins are for personal use; can I send those in?
Answer: No. Although this may be legal in your state, it is against our company policy. We cannot possibly keep track of every exception to every law for every animal in every state. Therefore, we do not accept purchased raw fur unless the client has a fur buyer's license. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Question: If you do not accept purchased raw fur from individuals other than those with a fur buyer's license, how can I have the legally raw fur I purchased for personal use tanned?
Answer: In this case we recommend that you take it to a professional taxidermist in your state that is familiar with the local regulations. He may accept the fur in his logbook, if legal in your state, and then send the raw fur to us by using his qualified client status as a professional taxidermist.
Question: Do I have to send a signed Lacey Act Compliance Statement in with each order, or can I just sign one for all of my shipments?
Answer: You must send a signed statement with each order. This is the only way we can be sure to protect your order in the event of a search by wildlife agencies.
Question: In my state taxidermists are allowed to remove government tags once we inventory the raw hides. So I should be able to send you hides with the tags removed, correct?
Not if your going to ship it out of state, or if it was harvested in another state.
