Hunting medals in Namibia
Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA)
|Minimum measurements for trophy hunting|
In the beginning
and middle of seventies epidemic of rabies and prolonged drought took severe toll on
population of old bulls which necessitated adoption (1983) of legislation which determined
a minimum measurements for trophy hunting.
The main purpose of the legislation was to clearly define and determine which animal can be regarded as trophy. The legislation enabled to monitor statistics on quantity and quality of animals taken in the country.
|Requirements and specifications|
|The measurements (in centimetres) consider the length and mention the circumferences at the base. The length is measured according according to Rowland Ward System. This method is also used by the American Safari Club International. In case of wear-off horns the method allows more accurate determination of the age of an animal. With spiralling horns of such antelopes as Kudu and Eland it is measured around each spiral and both length are added.|
|The idea to promote selective hunting and to reward exceptional trophies was implemented by Namibian Professional Hunting Association. Gold, silver and bronze medals with corresponding certificates are rewarded for exceptional trophies. Special ''Conservation medal'' is rewarded for exceptionally old trophies.|
|The NAPHA charges US$ 40 for a gold medal, US$ 35 for silver, US$ 30 for bronze and US$ 25 for conservation medal. If certificate is ordered without medal the price is US$ 10 otherwise included in the medal's price.|
