The Conservation Medal

Trophies that do not qualify for the above-mentioned medals because of old age or because the trophy is deformed or broken, qualify for the Conservation Medal minted in "Old Silver".

The Game Field Medal

The prestigious Game Field Medal is to reward the hunting client for harvesting a gold medal trophy of extreme age. It is crucial for the hunters of the future that the hunters of today preserve strong gene pools by harvesting trophies that are past their prime - thereby ensuring superior genetics for future generations.

Hunting professionals apply for the Game Fields Medal following the dame procedure as for the other medals, with the exception that a trophy photo must be supplied to substantiate the application.
