    I have a client that is in NZ and has 2 black swans 2 paradise ducks and 2 pukekoes that he wants me to mount for him I was wondering how to go about getting them into the US. I imagine they would have to be skinned and fleshed and salted. I dont know anything about the importing of wildlife. Thanks for any help

    Flesh and salt, apply for a NZ export permit from their department of environment/conservation, can take a few days, and then proceed with the usual at your end, ie 3-177 , in through a designated port of US entry and then onto an approved USDA facility,

    I've brought birds in from NZ several times. Since NZ isn't a hot country they don't have to be consigned to an Approved Facility, even though I am an AE I've sent several hunters there that brought birds back with no trouble. The Export Permit on all my trips was gotten for me by my outfitters. Simple process and brought back whole birds and unsalted skins in the case of Swans and Turkeys to reduce weight and space. You enter into the U.S. with your 3-177 and declaration and then wait for the TSA/Customs in L.A. to try and figure out the procedure and every time they seem lost trying to do so!
