The hunting agency ARTEMIS is an intermediary between members of a hunting club and foreign customers (hunting operators abroad and the individual hunters) and is responsible for organization of hunting, preparation of hunting areas and taking the report after finished hunting trip.
Foreign hunters are obligated to respect game law and the Polish hunting regulations legally binding in Poland. Shooting animals during the close season is strictly prohibited.
Each individual hunter will be accompanied by an interpreter throughout the whole period of stay and a guide/stalker in the hunting grounds, where hunting finds place.
Each hunter can take the trophies with him home. Relevant papers are to be issued before his or her departure. Should there be any import charges, they are to be covered individually by the hunter. The measurement and evaluation of trophies as well as weighting should be taken 24 hours after the preparation and shall be carried out in the presence of a representative of the appropriate hunting district, interested hunter and the representative of the hunting agency as well as guide/interpreter. Can the 24 hours drying period for the trophy not be kept due to formal circumstances, for example because of an earlier departure of a hunter – then the actual weight of the trophy (without drying weight loss) is valid and no further complains or requests will be considered. Should circumstances allow, complaints or any other contentious issues should be settled at the spot.
Wounded animals will be charged according to appropriate pricelist if the wounding can be proved to the shooter – traces of coat/fur, blood, pieces of bone, fragments of venison (shooting).
