European hunting license:
Since 1995 every member of the European Union who would like to go abroad for a hunt has to have a European Hunting License. Please claim this license long before the start of your hunt and contact the local authorities regarding the subject.
Hungarian hunting license including insurance:
All guests who would like to come to Hungary for hunting have to have a Hungarian hunting license which our office issues for you. For this we need the number of your passport and the number of your European hunting license which need to be given to our office at the time of signing of the hunting contract, with the names of the participants.
When issuing the Hungarian hunting licence, at the same time we issue obligatory responsibility insurance for our hunters, the price of which is included in the price of the hunting licence.
You will have to keep the Hungarian hunting licence issued for you, including the insurance with you during the whole time period while you are in Hungary.
Bringing the weapon for hunt into Hungary
You certify the aim of your travel with an invitation letter issued for you by our office, sent to you 1 month prior your trip. You need to present this letter to the Hungarian custom authorities at the border of the country.
In the airport coming into Hungary, after the passport check and picking up your luggage you need to choose the red corridor that is where you can settle bringing in your weapon to the country.
After the passport- and weapon check, you have to report the weapon to the Hungarian custom officer.
This license must be presented when leaving Hungary and it must be left in the office of the border station where you cross the border. In case visitors fail to observe this regulation the Hungarian custom authorities will bring an action against them.
Our office does not organise plane tickets, this is always the task of the guest.
Usually 20 kg is the allowed weight of luggage. In case of heavier luggage the traveller has to pay a surcharge including taking the trophies home.
Trophy judgement and taking the trophy home:
In Hungary, hunters have to submit the following trophies for judgement: the antler of red deer stag, fallow deer stag and roe deer buck; the horn of moufflon ram; the tusk of wild boar if its average size exceeds 16 cm. Trophies have to be submitted for judgement within 30 days after the killing of the game. Taking out of the territory of Hungary the above mentioned trophies without trophy judgement is considered to be a crime.
If the time of the hunting of the game having a trophy does not allow the trophy judgement taking place before the departure of the hunter then he/she has to leave the trophy in Hungary for the judgement.
After the trophy judgement, according to a mutual agreement in a certain time and in a certain way we send you the trophy.
If you have such a hunter luck that you shoot a game with a trophy reaching the international IP point limits, in that case the trophy has to be submitted by the hunting authority to the ministry for further judging, in order to declare that the trophy is a national value.
Minimum IPs for those hunters has to submit the trophy for further judgement:
– red deer 240 IP
– fallow deer 200 IP
– moufflon 220 IP
– roe deer 170 IP
– wild boar 130 IP
The hunting authority certifies the submission, judgement and export of the trophy by providing a certification with the serial number of the identifier, a signature and a stamp.
The hunting authority marks the judged trophies (except tusks of wild boar) by drilling a hole into the base of the right antler. Trophy judgement certificate issued by the hunting authority must be provided when requested at the custom or to any authority authorized to inspect to origin of the trophy. If the hunters have hunting license the certification has to be noted in the personal bag list column of the hunting license.
Hunters need a permission from the hunting authorities to take the following trophies: antler of red deer stag, fallow deer stag and roe deer buck; the horn of moufflon ram; the tusk of wild boar (this permission is noted on the hunting license at the time of refereeing).
The hunters have to show this permission to the custom authority when they leave the country.
The hunting authority provides a medal and a certificate to the hunter if the quality of the trophy reaches the medal-threshold and the game was killed in the proper way.
The hunting authority provides a duplicate of trophy to the hunter in case the trophy is a national value. Then the ministry organises the display of the trophy.
When it is declared that the trophy is a national value the hunter may submit a claim for compensation. The maximum amount of the compensation is the fee paid by the hunter for the hunting contract.
