General conditions of hunting in Hungary:
The hunter is obliged to only use the guides furnished to him. They are local Hungarian hunting guides living in Hungary. The hunting guest must strictly follow the instructions of the hunting guide and can only bag the game identified and permitted to be shot by the hunting guide. The guide is the judge.
The harvested trophies have to be presented to the official Trophy Assessment Commission after the hunt and cannot be taken along by the hunter. The trophies will later be sent to the stated address.
The chargeable weight of the horns needs to be entered into the hunting protocol by the game reserve. If the weight has not been determined in the game reserve, you should be present at the trophy assessment. (meaning the weighing). In case this is not possible, you are obliged to accept and pay the weight of the horns as determined by the Trophy Assessment Commission.
The basis of invoicing is the trophy weight that has been officially determined by the Trophy Assessment Commission 24 hours after boiling. If the trophy is assessed more than 24 hours after boiling (different opening hours of the Assessment offices), a computerized weight (drying of skull bone) is added.
The harvested and paid trophy is the property of the hunter, except for the game meat, which can be acquired by the hunting guest at an extra charge. The same applies to coats.
The final invoice is based on the completed and mutually signed shooting list according to the respective price list. The tolerance of 15 % for trophy weight estimation by the hunting guide has to be accepted by the hunting guest. For wounded game 50% of estimated trophy weight and/or harvest fee is charged. The necessary documents, such as shooting list and hunting license, are sent to the game reserve prior to the hunt.
The hunting guest must possess a hunting license valid in the home country and a European Firearms Pass in which the firearm carried along by the hunter is mentioned. Additionally, the hunting guest is obliged to pay for potential damage caused by him or her. If a trophy is harvested that is declared a new world record by the Trophy Assessment Commission, the original trophy must not be exported from Hungary. In this case the hunting guest receives a replica trophy and has to pay only 50 % of the harvest fee.
Before the start of the hunt each hunting guest needs to purchase a hunting license for the respective state. Our contacts will take care of that for you..
