Sambar Stag

This may sound like a really dumb question, but here goes anyways.

I understand that it's illegal to use Elephant ivory without some sort of certificate. Is that also true with stag since India stopped exporting it? Reason I ask is I have 5 sets of 25 year old scales that I want to use.

The certificate for ivory is because it is illegal to import. The certificate is verification that the ivory was sold before the import ban.

Just because India has stopped exporting doesn't necessarily make stag illegal to import. I don't know that it is. The certificates are for legal issues with anything coming into the U.S., not whatever country it is coming out of, generally. (In some cases you need certificates for both).

Ah, should have did a google search before. There's a bunch of sellers out there and I don't see anything mentioned about coa so I guess it's safe. Just don't want those infernal revenuers coming to my door.

I would like to know about the certificate for ivory. I have pre-ban ivory and when there was no ban, there was no paper work re-quired and since it has been banned, there is no ivory coming in. Where did you find info as I have done a Google search and find nothing.

I just searched for Stag and found a bunch of vendors. None were giving any kind of certificate. Those that carried Ivory though, did give certificate of origin with it.
