We know that it’s a crucial and important question for all trophy hunters. We are committed to provide the maximum safety and perfect treatment for trophies. Transporting trophies within the European Union does not require veterinary inspections at the border, except in cases when there is an epidemic alert.
Transporting trophies to outside the European Union (e.g. USA, Canada):
When exporting trophies, our office will provide local veterinarian documents, trophy judgement certification, and invoice of your payment. According to current North American regulations, wild game meat transport is not allowed into the U.S and Canada. Upon request and for additional costs, our custom agent partner will issue a custom declaration. Hunters can choose any shipping company, otherwise our partner custom agency will proceed.
Please inquire in advance about your country’s legislation of trophy, mount, and wild game meat import and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
As we do not offer hunt for restricted or endangered species, no need to obtain special permit for importing them into the U. S or Canada. However, we encourage our guests to check the trophy and mount import regulations of their country.
Our responsibilities include the field preparation and cleaning for official measurement. We also provide transportation of your trophies to the taxidermy studio. We work only with professional taxidermists with good recommendations, but as the taxidermy fee is NOT included in our service and package price, our responsibility is limited in that point.
We are willing to share the contact information of our preferred taxidermy studio’s and introduce you to their high standards and the artistic venue they work with. Upon request, we can assist tracking taxidermy and trophy shipping.
The average shooting distance is 100-200 yards. Based on this, the recommended calibers are as follows:
- For red deer, fallow deer, wild boar: 7×64 ; 30.06 ; 308 ; 300 win-mag ( 150-180 grains)
- For roe deer: .223 Rem ; 6.5 x 57 ; .243 Win ( 50-140 grains)
Most of our hunting areas are relatively flat, however, certain conditions and terrain require vertical adjustment for the proper shooting according to the actual angle and distance. Please be aware that test shooting and ballistic checkout before hunting are highly recommended. Attached to the hunting contract we provide a “what to bring “ checklist according to the season and hunting method.
All guests who come to Hungary for hunting must possess the following documents:
- firearm license,
- invitation letter or valid Hungarian Hunting license including hunting insurance (provided by Passion and Prey office)
- hunting contract (detailed document includes participants’ name, contact information, desired wild game trophy and number, method of payment, and credit card information)
A gun import licence is no longer needed. Hunting guns can be carried into Hungary with a European Firearms Pass. Today, hunters can cross the border without registering their firearms. However, it is the hunters’ responsibility to be aware of the current legislation. When arriving by plane, guns will be controlled by the customs authority.
Upon entering into Hungary with firearm, guest hunters should apply for a gun import licence by presenting the invitation letter and a copy of the Hungarian hunting license, a declaration form and their own firearm license and hunting license (if available). The firearm import license fee is 20 Euro. (Payment is due upon arrival to Hungary)
Insurance: As general hunting insurance (including the hunting license we provide) protect hunters only during the hunt and lodging, we suggest our guests to acquire global personal coverage to be protected outside the hunting field.
SCI trophy scoring
All the trophies will be presented and scored, based on the CIC point system, by the official valuation committee as a part of our service. We also have access to measure and score trophies by SCI official measurer at Hungarian Chapter. Please ask for details.
