Cull Hunting Packages in South Africa

What is Cull Hunting?

Cull hunting packages are needed for the management of certain animals. This need stems from the animals having no natural predators.

Cull hunting is ideal for long-range enthusiasts and is certainly not limited to long-range hunting. Cull hunting is for mature males and older females and not for substandard or young animals.

Management or cull hunts are no different from a trophy hunt, except you target other animals in the herd.

Cull hunting packages are needed for the management of certain animals. This need stems from the animals having no natural predators.

Taxidermy Alternatives and Cost

Alternative one is that you dip and pack your trophies and have your taxidermist do the taxidermy. Dip and pack is a chemical treatment of your trophies and a legal requirement for entrance in the united states.

Alternative two is that you have the taxidermy work done in South Africa and the final product shipped.

For both alternatives, you need to decide which Trophies you will be doing a shoulder mount for and which trophies you will be doing a European skull mount for. Most hunters only decide that on the completion of their hunt.

Cost of Taxidermy for the Kudu, Nyala, and Gemsbok Package

The images below set out your taxidermy costs for the Kudu, Nyala, and Gemsbok package. The cost will depend on how much of your taxidermy is shoulder-mounted versus skull mounted. There are no additional costs.

The only variable we do not have control of is the shipping costs (which include taxes), which is a function of exchange rates, oil prices, and other costs.

We take care of all the field preparation of trophies and delivery to the taxidermy, all of which are included in your package. Our skinners have a lifetime of experience in field trophy preparation.

We ensure that your taxidermy is of high quality, follow up on delivery, and ensure that your trophies are delivered safely and sound.
