- The minimum age requirement of using firearms is 18 years.
- Automatic or semi- automatic rifles are not permitted for big-game hunting
- Hunting activity shall be done only in the presence of a professional guide.
Clients can shoot only at permitted game species and with the guide’s permission. In case of unsafe manner or shooting direction, guides have the right to stop the hunt. In case of harvesting a protected species, the nature conservation value of the animal will be included in the fine.
The professional guide should recognize the species and provide an estimation about the size of the trophy. Given the perfect appraisal is impossible, hunters shall accept and pay for the trophy size difference within a 15% range in antlered species and mouflon ram. In case of the measured trophy weight or length exceeds the 15 % tolerance range, both parties shall come to an agreement. As the wild boar trophy cannot be estimated, the hunter shall accept and pay wild boar trophy with no size limitation.
Every trophy must be presented to and scored by the official valuation committee. Trophy valuation and scoring is based on the weight of antlers or length of horns and tusks. Measurement will be completed within 24 hours after the trophy has been cleaned. All antlered trophies are weighed with full skull, top jaw and antlers intact. A 90g deduction is made to roe buck skulls total weight. There is no deduction in measurement of red stag and fallow buck. Mouflon and wild boar trophies are measured by their outer curve. The officially measured trophy valuation will determine the payable trophy fee.</p>
Wounding fee: There is NO pressure for our clients to take a shot, they can take their time to wait until they feel comfortable with their and the animal’s position. Please release the trigger when you are ready, and take a responsible shot. A wounding fee (that is the 50% of the estimated trophy fee), determined by the professional hunting guide, is due upon wounding. If the animal wound is proven by blood found and the thorough tracking ends with no success, the wounding fee will apply. If the wounded animal is found dead within two weeks of completion of the hunt, the remaining 50 % trophy fee balance becomes due and payable.
The official trophy committee of the country is authorized to declare trophies with higher international credit (world record) as national assets. In this case, trophy will remain in the possession of the Hungarian State with the hunter paying a decreased trophy fee and receiving a replica of the trophy.
If unforeseen issues arise during the hunt, the issues should be reported to Passion & Prey representative, and an attempt at resolution should be made immediately. After the hunt is finished, complaints will no longer be accepted. Unresolved concerns shall be addressed accordance by Hungarian Civil Law.
We believe in respect for our quarry as that. Because our hunts are conducted in free range, under fair chase principals, your success cannot be guaranteed. Unexpected harsh weather conditions, missed shots or bad luck may result lower success rate occasionally, by the very nature of hunting. In this case, Passion and Prey will investigate all circumstances, and decide at its own discretion about the reimbursement of the trophy fee.
In Hungary there is no wild game breeding program or manipulated trophies. The Hungarian hunting law strictly prohibits using hormones or testosterone in wild game management. Our game population is born and raised by Mother Nature. In EU countries, the use of GMO technologies are banned, therefore their wild game meat is free of artificial agents and chemicals, providing the highest available quality of food source.
