Croatia is one of the only places where European brown bear hunting is available.
European brown bears are roughly the same size as North American grizzly bears, squaring 8-9 feet.
Croatia is EU member, and offers some great tourism on the coast and some excellent hunting combo possibilities. If you get your bear early you can combo with fallow deer or mouflon sheep in a nearby area.
This is a different spin on brown bear hunting with a higher success rate than most hunts in North America. You should definitely give it some consideration.
With a growing population, Gold medal brown bears are a real possibility and this hunt has an unheard of success rate of 90%! Croatia is also officially recognized by CITES, and for that reason exporting your trophy is no hassle.
Brown bear hunts in Croatia are done from “high seats” over bait with the possibility for some spot-and-stalk hunting. Spot-and-stalk hunting isn’t as successful as hunting bears over bait, so we highly recommend being patient and sitting it out.
