Welcome to North Country Legends Taxidermy

Importation Restrictions

For those who plan to hunt outside of Michigan this fall, it is important to note that regulations related to the importation of harvested cervids (deer, elk or moose) have changed substantially. Hunters who harvest a cervid in any other state or province can bring back only the following into Michigan:

  • Hides/capes
  • Deboned meat
  • Quarters (legs, including leg bones, that do not have any part of the spinal column or head attached).
  • Finished taxidermy products
  • Cleaned Elk ivories or other teeth
  • Antlers
  • Antlers attached to a skullcap cleaned of brain and muscle tissue

Please contact me prior to your hunt if you have any questions regarding this procedure. Also, please contact me and I will provide you with the measurements that need to be taken in the field prior to skinning and caping. For comprehensive caping and skinning instructions please see this important and urgent video.
