Meat processing, Taxidermy & Shipping the Trophy:
There are several options for you to choose from with regards of what to do with your meat. First of all, it is your responsibility to get the meat to Iliamna. Once there, you can have it all shipped to Anchorage for processing, and then air-freighted to you. You could have some shipped to Anchorage for processing and then donate the rest locally, or you could donate all of it locally. Donated meat does not go to waste. Generally, wild game processing in Anchorage runs about $2-3 per pound and air freight will be an additional $3-4 per pound (domestically), depending on your location.
Our obligation and hospitality doesn’t stop when you leave camp. After you leave we will have all of the antlers, capes and hides for your hunt shipped to Anchorage. We will notify you when your trophy leaves our hands and is on the way to the expeditor. You will deal directly with the expeditor – no middle men. Normally, they set up an account for you and present you with one itemized bill for all the charges when you get your trophy(s). Very professional and convenient. If you use Dave Dunn, the taxidermist we recommend, you can expect to receive your trophy 4-5 months after your hunt. Click here for more information.
