Red Stag - Cervus Elaphus L./01.09-31.01/

Red deer-CERVUS ELAPHUS L. /1.09-31.01/
The red deer is a symbol of the Bulgarian hunting management. Because of the rich natural biotope and the good management, there are particularly strong populations with very good trophy qualities.
In Bulgaria the red deer is hunted walking and from high seat. In many Hunting Areas red deer trophies over 9-10kg can be gained. Hunting Areas located in Northeast Bulgaria offer capital trophies over 12- 14kg. The red deer in the mountainous areas in Rhodope Mountain, Vitosha, and Old Mountain have weight between 7-9kg.

WILD BOAR - Sus Scrofa L. ALL YEAR

WILD BOAR INDIVIDUAL HUNTING - ALL YEAR

In Bulgaria, wild boar hunting is much loved, preferred and traditional. Hunting is from high seat, driven hunting, and in some hunting regions – walking and stalking. There are very good wild boar trophies in all parts of the country. The most frequently shot wild boars have tusks with length 20-24cm, and usually get silver and gold medals. Wild boars with length of tusks over 24 cm are often shot. The best time for hunting form high seat is just before or after full moon, from November until March. The longest tusks from the last hunting season are 28, 8 cm. The national record was shot in Rhodope Mountain and its appraisal is 158,20 CIC points. For 18 years (until 2004) it was the World record as well.

DRIVEN HUNT /1.10 – 14.01/

Driven hunting is emotional and attractive experience on the territory of the whole country, in high mountains and plains. Hunting can take place in open areas, as well as in special large hunting enclosures (over 300 ha). The chasing dogs, the running game and tense expectation – you can personally feel this in many hunting regions in Bulgaria.

ROE DEER - Capreolus Capreolus L./01.05-30.10/

CAPREOLUS CAPREOLUS L./1.05-30.10/
From end of spring until beginning of autumn the large game rests. Only hunting on roe bucks is allowed during this period. In May or in the beginning of June, the most suitable time is early morning or at nightfall.
The other good possibility is in September and October. Hunting on roe bucks is not easy, but waiting and stalking is worthy for a trophy with a weight of 300-450g (in mountainous Hunting Areas) and 400-550g (in the lowlands of Northeast Bulgaria).

MOUFLON - Ovis Musimon Pall. ALL YEAR

MOUFLON - OVIS MUSIMON PALL. ALL YEAR
The mouflon has also been acclimatized decades ago and now is developing very well in many areas of Bulgaria. Proof of that is the extraordinary trophy with 234, 40 CIC points shot in Hunting Area "Voden". Its horns are long and symmetric– between 80- 90 сm, and it is a favourite trophy for many hunters. Hunting is through stalking and from high seat.

Fallow deer - Cervus Dama L./1.09-31.01/

Fallow deer - CERVUS DAMA L./1.09-31.01/
This large game has been acclimatized 100 years ago. Its management is especially successful through the last 30-40years. Trophies of 3-4кg can be gained. In 2005 there were shot many trophies, 5 of which over 200 CIC points.

CHAMOIS - Rupicapra Rupicapra L. /15.09. - 31.10. females, 01.12. - 15.01. males/

CHAMOIS - RUPICAPRA RUPICAPRA L. /15.09.-31.10.2011 females, 01.12.2008-15.01.2012 males/
The Chamois hunting is carried out under a special regime, fixed in the Biological variety Law, accordingly the directives of European Union. The chamois inhabits all high mountains of Bulgaria – Rila, Rhodope, Pirin and Old Mountain. The local variety is Rupicarpa Balkanika. Its hunting areas are usually over 1800 m altitude. Its hunting is hard, but extremely emotional. Stalking in the virgin and untouched by human biotopes is an unforgettable experience. In Rhodope Mountains can be hunted even over 800 m altitude. The offered trophies are between 85-110 CIC points, predominantly 95 CIC points.

CAPERCAILIES - Tetrau Urogallus L. /15.04-15.5/

Bulgaria is one of not many countries in Europe, where this rare and valuable trophy can be obtained.

The natural habitats of the capercaillies are high in Rhodope Mountains and Rila, and during the winter are hard to hunt because of the thick snow.

Carnivores

Carnivores
In Bulgaria, their population is very high, so their hunting is allowed. In not many countries in Europe, carnivores are known as local game, or if there are any, they are under special regime. Their hunting is very rarely allowed. During the winter months, you can successfully hunt on wolfs and jackals through stalking, from a high seat or even taking part in driven hunting. Annually hundreds of foxes are shot, as well as about 300 wolfs and 4000 jackals.
