JOHN SHARP AND ROBIN HURT AWARD APPLICATION FORM

·         Must be a full APHA member to apply.

·         Awards will be presented at the annual APHA function.

·         All entries must be for animals taken in the calendar year prior to the APHA function and must be received by December 31 of that year.

·         All entries must have been hunted on a free range basis and in countries in which the species can be legally hunted.  "Canned" hunts will be automatically disqualified.  [Note: white rhino must not be from hunts that are limited to a one animal permit where the hunter has no selection possibilities.]

·         A member can enter more than one trophy.  Please use a separate submission for each.

·         Scoring will be done by the APHA Executive Committee and will be based on the APHA's official TROPHY JUDGING PARAMETERS

·         Executive Committee members will not be allowed to be involved in judging any award in which they have an entry.

 

*Brief description of the hunt: Points will be awarded for the difficulty of obtaining the trophy; therefore a brief description of the hunt is necessary.  Factors that need to be clarified must include the weapon used and whether the trophy was taken using bait, blinds, tracking, dogs, etc.  This is a very important part of the judging, so please be as thorough as possible; this DOES NOT need to be written in a “story” format.

Additional Required Information:

PLEASE EMAIL ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO THE A.P.H.A. EXECUTIVE OFFICER: executiveofficer@africanpha.org

1. Trophy measurements: It is essential that an accurate measurement of the trophy being submitted is included. These measurements must follow the SCI measurement system. Measurements can be submitted any of the following ways:

a. Fully completed SCI measurement form*, signed by an official SCI measurer (Copies OK).

b. SCI measurement form* filled in by the PH, and witnessed and signed by one member of a registered African Professional Hunters Association (Copies OK).

* SCI measurement forms are available for download from www.scifirstforhunters.org or click HERE for official SCI measurement forms.  

WHITE RHINO will be judged under the SCI system only and ELEPHANT IVORY will be based on individual tusk weight.

Additional measurements:

LEOPARD:    - Body length (nose to tip of tail, not following the contour of                                         the body)

- If possible, accurate weight on a scale (no estimates)

BUFFALO:    - Widest width of the horns, as per the old Rowland Ward system  

2. Trophy photographs: Please submit at least 1 quality field photo of the trophy. (The photos may be uploaded via the application form, attached to an email, or mail paper prints.) 

Additional photos:

LION:              - In order to accurately judge the trophy, additional photographs that clearly show the lion's face, mane and body are required.  

LEOPARD:    - Additional photographs that will help authenticate the supplemental measurements need to be included. This may involve the professional hunter holding the leopard in order to give a better idea of scale and body size.


            CROCODILE: - For scale a person must be present in the photo.
