Modern Huntsmanship: Big game trophy hunt
Traditionally, there are four major European systems of hunting: the Scandinavian, the Anglo-Saxon, the Mediterranean and the German. Historically, Hungary belongs to the German system.
Since the Baroque period, the German system has been characterized by the cult of big game trophies. The hunter considers the trophy as a unique creation of nature. Exceptional trophies are highly valued, the acquisition of which indicates the hunter's skill, perseverance, and luck, of course, but it is also an assessment of the work of the gamekeeper. Since the end of the 19th century, the quality of the trophy has represented a hunter's achievement as well as the condition of the game stock.
