General information on trophy hunting in Namibia.
The history of trophy hunting in Namibia started in 1962 when several private farms owners decided to provide professional and controlled hunting on their farms. The Namibian Professional Hunting Association, one of the main controlling organizations in the country, was established in 1974 and now has more than 300 members. The Namibian code of hunting ethics was formed under strong influence of German hunting rules and regulations also because of large number of farms' owners of German origin.
According to Namibian hunting regulations the presence of professional hunter - guide is compulsory during the whole duration of hunting safari. It is illegal to start a safari without proper obtained hunting license, where all desired animals must be stated. The export trophies permits will not be issued for animals not stated in the hunting license. If, during the safari, an animal was wounded and its blood was found, the animal regarded as killed and paid in full.
Services of professional taxidermy studios in Namibia.
There are several professional taxidermy companies in Namibia. Their rates for preparing trophies depend on type of trophy (shoulder mount, full mount, etc.) and type of animal. As a general practice the preparation takes 8 - 12 month. The shipping costs normally charged separately.
