Getting Your Mounts Back.
Birds mounted on dirftwood or bases can be shipped in a box. Cost for these boxes start at $65.00 and can go up form there.
If you would like to send us birds, please follow these procedures:
B. Contact us prior to sending your specimens. Shipping on Mondays is the most desireable if at all possible.
C. Remove bird from freezer and insulate with 3-4 inches of newspaper (leave in plastic bag). Purchase a cheap styrofoam cooler, and pack bird(s) inside with more newspapers. Fit cooler into a cardboard box and tape shut. The outside of the box should be labeled in one of the corners stating contents. Example; 3 Mallard drakes 1 Pintail drake.
D. Make sure each bird contained in the shipment has its own "ID" tag. An index card can be used for this purpose. USFWS REQUIRES THIS FOR POSSESSION AND SHIPMENT ACROSS STATE LINES. This info should state your name, street address, phone #, date collected, Where collected and your signature.
E. We prefer shipment made via UPS, or FED-EX. We would prefer you NOT send birds via US Post Office. 2 to 3 day shipping is recommended depending on your location nationally. Larger coolers should be used for multiple birds.
F. For information on importing birds or any other questions please contact us.
