We're Still Buying Pre Ban Ivory
NEW BAN TO TAKE PLACE
Effective July 6, 2016 there will be a nationwide ban rendering all ivory virtually worthless. We will still be selling ivory interstate thru June 30th 2016 and then that's it.
Beginning July 1, 2016 we will only sell pre-ban ivory within our state of Florida as the law still permits Intrastate commerce.
Florida has always accounted for about 60% of our business with Texas right behind it at about 30% and the rest of the USA only accounted for about 10% of our market. It's unfortunate to lose all our friends but the clueless won this round. We're fortunate to live in our largest market. Business here in Florida as usual.

To All The Tree-Huggers Who Like To Profess Their Ignorance
And want to send us their hate emails....
We are not interested in your ignorance which many of you seem to profess. Please email someone who cares to listen to your nonsense and chatter. Learn the law.
Here is a lesson in ivory: It is legal to purchase pre ban ivory
. Do you understand that? If you don't understand that, we cannot help you.
Now, if someone poached the ivory in Africa, they would somehow have to smuggle it into the USA. Smuggling illegal complete ivory tusks into the USA is virtually impossible. For them to smuggle ivory tusks into the USA, you would have to believe that USA customs and Fish & Wildlife are inept at their jobs. If you believe that, then write your Congressman. If you believe they are very capable at their jobs (which they are), then you also believe that no illegal full ivory tusks enters our country and marketplace. If you believe that, then ivory dealers such as us have no access to illegal tusks and therefore we can't purchase them. If we can't (and won't) purchase them, it cannot affect current poaching because the poachers in Africa can't sell their illegally poached tusks here. Any legal entity (such as us) buying and selling legal pre ban ivory report any illegal trafficking faster than a New York minute. No legal pre ban ivory buyers here in the USA want any part of illegal trafficking. If they (the poachers) cannot sell it here, the USA is not a factor or market in current poaching. If that is the case (which it is) then us buying pre ban ivory tusks
has nothing to do with poaching current wildlife populations. Don't you hate logic. Here is some additional valuable information as to the legality of buying and selling pre-ban ivory.
Now, if all that is too deep for you to understand or perhaps you are too ignorant to understand simple logic and rationale, then you have our sympathy. If you still believe that trading in Pre Ban ivory affects current ivory there is no hope for you as you are stuck on incorrect facts. As such, you probably need to get a life. From what we understand, eBay auctions them occasionally and we suggest that you go and buy yourself one. Have a nice day.
The WWF (World Wildlife Fund) which claims to be a worthwhile organization promotes the preservation of nature and that's a good thing. However, one should read here to gain a better understanding of this organization and its highly paid top executives and what donations actually fund.
They need donations from unsuspecting like minded uninformed individuals to push their agenda so that funds keep flowing in and its top executives keep remaining fat.
Unfortunately, they make the following statement which is irresponsible, misleading and incorrect. "And some say if the elephant's already dead, why not buy the item, right? Wrong. If people keep buying these products the illegal trade will continue, and poachers will keep killing for more'.
That would be true IF
one were able to import ivory into the USA and one were able to export ivory to the USA. It is against international and USA law to import or export ivory; period! USA Customs and FWS does a wonderful job of enforcing the law. Since that is the case and law, the WWF has it all wrong. Buying and selling pre-ban ivory already in the USA since before the ban is quite legal and does nothing
to harm current elephant populations. To the contrary, current elephant populations are at an all time high due to their protection. And, that last statement, like it or not, is very true despite all the propaganda to the contrary.
The fact remains that thousands of hunters prior to 1989 and especially in the 1940's through 1970's is when hunters went after their trophies. Much of this ivory still remains and is coming onto the market today as these generations of hunters are passing on their trophies, selling off estates and/or selling it themselves. When these people pass on, there will be no more. The greatest generation gave us the freedom as we know it today and their ranks are dwindling on a daily basis as is legal pre ban ivory.
