Transporting trophies from Canada to the U.S.

Jan 15, 2019
I am heading to the NWT this September to hunt Musk Ox.

I was planning to contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Customs to find out what the process is for bringing the hide and horns back into the U.S. when I fly home.

The outfitter told me that I will need to overnight in Edmonton AB on the way up, and on the way back. When I flew through Calgary last year, I was able to get my firearms paperwork handled with U.S. Customs at the Calgary International Airport. I was hoping I could do the same this year in Edmonton, and possibly process any paperwork for the trophy.

If anyone has any advice, or knowledge of the process, what forms I need to fill out etc, I would really appreciate any help I can get.

Thank you,
