    Professional Hunters' Association of South Africa (PHASA) Trophy Medal Program

    Overseas clients that hunt with PHASA members have the opportunity to enter their trophies for PHASA Medals and Certificates.

    The PHASA Trophy Medal Program, patterned after a similar and highly successful system operating in Namibia, is based on the SCI Methods of Measurement. It was introduced primarily as a way to acknowledge the client’s success in the form of a medal / certificate, which is issued according to the size of the trophy. Clients can qualify for Gold, Silver or Bronze medals that come with attractive certificates that are suitable for framing.

    Scoring Information
    • Use SCI methods of measurement for the PHASA Trophy Medal Scoring System.
    • All measurements are "Green" measurements without drying period except for White Rhinoceros horns which must be measured 30 days after collection.
    • All measurements in inches and fractions to the nearest 1/8 except for cat skulls which are measured to the nearest 1/16.
    • The PHASA trophy medal measurements are not automatic entries into any record book.

    Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals, each medal is accompanied by an attractive certificate which includes hunter's name, trophy, score, place, date, and name of professional hunter and outfitter. This is to promote the basic idea of selective trophy hunting.

    Gold Medal (22 carat gold plated)

    Silver Medal (pure silver plated)

    Bronze Medal (bronze plated)

    Clients that would like to have the opportunity to enter their trophies for PHASA Trophy Medal Program and Certificate can check with their hunting outfitter who are members of the Professional Hunters' Association of South Africa (PHASA). For further information on the medals, you can contact PHASA directly at

    Thanks for the info looks like I will still need to enter them into SCI once I know what the measurements are. Suspense is killing me.
