Hungary has the best Roe Deer hunting in the world!
Roe Deer Hunting Season is from mid-April through September.
Hunting in Hungary is done by stalking.
You will drive to an area and then the driver will drop you and your guide off off to begin stalking. Shooting distances will range from 15 to 200 yards, but a typical shot is 100-150 yards.
NOTE: Make sure you work out the details of your hunting preferences on day 1 with a translator and your guide.
Success rate is 100%
It is more like hunting rabbits more than hunting deer. So much fun!
Trophy quality is excellent to good.
You will be hunting mature bucks that are up to 7-8 years old. The Roe Deer begins to degenerate after a certain point and will either get larger and go non-typical, or the antlers can actually start to get smaller. Europeans pride themselves on harvesting bucks that have character.
Same as a whitetail, there are typical and non-typical scales for measuring the antlers.
* Hunter’s need to be forewarned and prepared for the ground shrinkage associated with hunting the Roe Deer. The first time they walk up on their harvest they will be very un-impressed with the size of the deer itself. After a day or so of hunting this game though, you start to realize how awesome this deer is to hunt.
Lots of game to hunt.
Wild boar, driven pheasants and dove hunting is available. Good fishing can also be found here.
Pheasant numbers are amazing. While walking in the field we were constantly kicking up pheasants. They annually harvest 150,000 pheasants.
There are more and more hunters who like connecting roe hunting with their summer holiday, flavored with a boar hunt on the stubble-field. Whatever you like, be it a relaxing holiday, stunted bucks to be shot or roes with surroyal crowns, we shall find the proper hunting-ground for you.”
Guides do not speak English. Some understand a little German but communication is mostly by hand gestures once you leave the lodge.
Translators can be coordinated. The facility manager speaks very good English and can be used daily to communicate with your guide prior to departing or at any point in the day.
Terrain is varied farmland and plains.
Hunting in Hungary is mostly done in the plains and farms which consist of high grass, sunflowers, corn, and orchards. There are lots of ditches and field edges.
Marijuana grows naturally in Hungary. It is a weed and hunters will encounter it like any other weed you would find in a crop field.
We recommend that the serious bowhunter take archery gear and try their skills on the ground against this deer. The sheer number of roe deer in the area lends itself to one exciting day of bowhunting. It is literally one deer after another. Roe deer respond positively to calling during the rut, 15 July – 15 Aug, and the ability to spot, call and maneuver on a buck for the shot is a ton of fun.
Travelling to Hungary is easy via shuttle.
The hunting lodge is located two hours East of Budapest. A shuttle service from Budapest is available.
Transportation on your hunt will be in a truck.
Your guides will be driving good, fairly new four-door Land Rovers, Ford Rangers and Toyotas that are set up for off-road travel. Some will have seats in the back and some won’t.
The trucks are set up great for hunters that must hunt from a vehicle (with seats and shooting rest). Drivers were good overall, though some were better than others.
Lodging is not fancy, but nice and clean.
The lodge has double rooms with bathroom/shower, and a refrigerator, table and chairs in the common area. There is a boot washing station for washing large chunks of mud off of boots before entering barracks. Televisions are available in some rooms with cable, but the only English channel is CNN.
The food is excellent and there is plenty of it.
