So many people think that trophy hunting is all about ego. For us, and so many other hunters, it’s quite the opposite. Taking a trophy is about honouring the animal, remembering the experience and sharing the story with friends and family.
Rod, Jess and Tash go behind the scenes at Highveld Taxidermy in Johannesburg to walk you through the process from the salting shed all the way through to the finished product.
Highveld Taxidermists are true artists. They take great pride in paying close attention to detail and providing you with a unique work of art to remember your African hunting experience.
Taking the trophies home
Your trophies can generally be brought back to your home country. There are a few exceptions though. For example, although a lot of the cat species can be legally hunted in Africa, Australia does not allow the importation of any trophies from the cat family (this includes lions, leopards etc.) You can check the relevant regulations for your country through the CITES website.
