Ok so I am writing this being a little frustrated so I know I will leave something out but I need your help.
I had the great opportunity to hunt barren ground caribou in Canada last month with a great group of guys. Well now its been a month and I finally spoke to the taxidermist that has all our antlers and hides. He has been very responsive and helpful until now. Now that he found out that all we would like done is for out antlers and hides to just be fleshed salted and shipped. I think he was thinking he was going to get to mount all 10-12 caribou and ship them to us. He would not give me any kind of fleshing salt or shipping number over the phone... I even asked for just a ball park and he just said maybe 250 to ship 1 set of antlers and 2 capes but that's all I got.
He was suppose to send me a estimate today and did not. So I am thinking about loading up and driving 19 hours one way to get my trophy and hell everyones for that matter bringing it back frozen.

I am being lazy and not doing my own research and probably jumping the gun on this deal I want to give the taxidermist the benefit of doubt but the phone call I had with him has me more than frustrated.

So my question is what kind of paperwork will I need to import my animals back to the states? I tried lazily looking and I do not believe a CITES permits are required.
Can I bring back all 10-12 antlers sets and hides from my group? I don't see why I couldn't but you never know
Or does anyone know who or work in the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service I can call to talk to.

As always thanks to anyone with help in advance.
