The process for your Taxidermy

The process for your taxidermy – Nick Bowker Hunting

Alternative one is that you dip and pack your trophies and have your taxidermist do the Taxidermy. Dip and pack is a chemical treatment of your trophies and a legal requirement for entrance in the United States.

Alternative two is that you use a South African taxidermist and have the final product shipped.

For both alternatives, you need to decide which trophies you will be doing a shoulder mount for and which trophies you will be doing a European skull mount for. (And if you wish to do a back skin or flat skin)

Most hunters only decide that on the completion of their hunt.

We take care of all the field preparation of trophies and delivery to the Taxidermy, all of which are included in your package. Our skinners have a lifetime of experience in field trophy preparation. African Wildlife Taxidermy collects trophies after each hunt.

Nick Bowker hunting and African Wildlife Artsitery ensure that your Taxidermy is of high quality, follow up on delivery, and ensure that your trophies are delivered safely and sound.

The process for your taxidermy – African Wildlife Artistry

We work on an eight-month to yearly basis from the date of deposit and will keep you updated on the progress.  

Please also advise us of how you want your trophies mounted, for example, looking to the left or the right or straight from the animal’s point of view.

Please specify when having a floor pedestal what kind of pedestal you would want (rustic, teak), and please specify if you have any height restrictions?

You can view our website for mounting instructions.

We used trusted shipping agents.  Once trophies are ready to go and are delivered to the shipping agent, he will email you with the airfreight amount which you can deposit directly into his account, and then he will send the trophies.

Please also email us the clearing agent’s details you will be using on your side to clear your trophies.  If you do not know one, we can assist with emailing you details of one. Please confirm with your clearing agent if Import permits are needed, especially if there are CITES animals.
