D&L Custom House Broker

Hunting International  isnt meant to be hard but it can be, if you miss little things such as trophy importation and exporting rules by a countries, some dont allow it others need diffrent permits and so on. You have worked hard to make this trip come true, this hunt is meant to be fun and enjoyable but dealing with a few of these small details can make your dream hunt a sucess or leave you with a headache before , during, and after your hunt. Without having the proper paper work it could cost you your trophies entirely and without the knowledge and help it could cost you thousands of extra dollars and months of emails and phones calls that weren't necessary.  Thats why I've deligated my tophy shipping to someone who knows the ins and outs of the trophy shippment  game. The small price you pay to make sure its done correctly is well worth your ease of travel and lack of headache and haert break you can encounter when leaving this up to you to do.

Thank you for giving D&L CHB, LLC the opportunity to introduce our company to you!




1. Contact with the client to explain the process that will go on to import their trophies. Send the client the documents that we require to be filled out either prior to or upon the hunters return from their hunt.

2. The hunter or U.S. taxidermist will need to send us back the clients paperwork, being the Hunter
Information Sheet, signed Power of Attorney and acceptable Proof of Identity.

3. Regarding animals taken that require a U.S. Fish and Wildlife cites permit: D&L has the ability to apply for the cites on behalf of the hunter for a minimal fee. If the hunter does not require our services we will need the original permit when the hunter receives.


4. Depending on the country of origin and what is being done to the trophy (just dip n pack or mounting) we will contact the overseas taxidermist to make sure they have our information on file. We will include the client in on the email to ensure you see the response from the taxidermy.

5. Ensure we have the shipping agents information or get it from the overseas taxidermy to make contact.
We will keep track of the shipment as it moves from the taxidermy to the shipper.

6. Once the trophies are ready to ship the shipper scans us copies of the documents to double check for any errors, along with a pre-alert to track your shipment.

7. D&L will call you as soon as the trophies have been processed through U.S. Customs, Agriculture and
Fish & Wildlife. If there are any problems we will notify you immediately.

8. When all has been completed we will send you a bill for our services. You have the option of sending us a check or paying via Visa or Mastercard. Our payment terms are 30 days.
