Waiting and stalking for roe bucks with middle sized antlers in Somogy county, to the south of Lake Balaton
We recommend Somogy county (on the south of Lake Balaton) to those hunters who wish to shoot roe bucks with small and medium sized antlers. The hunting-grounds’ are of 3000 to 7000 hectares, covering 30-40% of acacia and oak forests. Between the smaller thickets, reedy and rushy spots there are also agricultural fields. In this region, our guests shoot approximately 200-220 bucks in a year, most of them being of 250-400 grams. The average weight of the trophies is 320 grams, but every year there are a couple of trophies over 400 grams. In the morning hours, the hunt mostly consists of stalking, while in the afternoon jeeps and high seats are rather dominant. In some of the territories there is an opportunity to hunt with horsed carriage. Due to the relaxed style of hunting, it is possible to bring down 4-6 roe bucks in 3 days. Thanks to the natural endowments, the hunt for roe bucks can be easily combined with sitting up for wild boars. Accommodation: there are several smaller, comfortable hunting lodges and private pensions available for our guests.
Middle sized bucks at the foot of Mátra mountains
In the Mátra mountains’ region, 60-80 kms to the north-east of Budapest, we have several hunting-grounds. The landscape of this vine-district is strongly marked by the vineyards.
The hunting-grounds near Gyöngyös and Hatvan have several advantages.
Firstly: due to the natural endowment – the fact that the Great Plain begins at the foot of the mountain – makes a wide scale of hunting style options possible, from buck stalking in the forest to jeep hunt in the plain.
Our guests shoot 150-200 roe buck per year in the area. The trophies are usually between 300-450 grams but some over 500 grams are not unusual either. The average weight is over 350 grams.
Other important factor that we shouldn’t leave out of consideration is that coming from Vienna, you can reach the area driving on the highway (M1, M3) and the Budapest Airport is also only at a 80 kms distance from the hunting-ground.
In the autumn, we can also organize small game hunts for pheasants, ducks and hares in the same area. It’s worth spending some time visiting the touristic sights of the neighbourhood (Eger, Mátrafüred, Hollóko, Gödöllo), too.

Capital bucks on the Great Hungarian Plain
The Hungarian roe deer population is the best quality all over the world, particulary our roe deer population of the lowlands is the best within the country. On one hand, it is set down to the fact of the excellent natural endowment, also of the agricultural fields providing plentiful food, and on the other hand, to the high-standard game management. It is worth to mention that, according to the Hungarian principles of game management, the bucks over 350 grams can only be shot at the age of 6-7 in order to maintain good quality. Thanks to this, in the last 40 years, Hungarian Plain bucks are placed high up in the world ranking list.
Our hunting-grounds are in Szolnok, Békés, Hajdú-Bihar and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg counties. The average size of the hunting-grounds is of 5000-12000 hectares, and there are 2-3 professional hunters directing the hunt. The average trophy weight is of 350-450 grams, but bucks over 500-550 grams are not rare either.
Thanks to the quick and comfortable hunting from jeep, up to 10-15 roe bucks may be taken in a 3-days-hunting. Of course, we have to mention that due to the few hiding places, many times it’s neccessary to shoot to a distance of 150-250 meters. Most bucks are killed in the beginning of the hunting season, until middle of May, but in the rutting period (beginning of August) there are also favourable conditions to take some roe bucks.
Usually in small hotels, pensions near the hunting-ground or in simple hunting lodges in the territory.
Pheasant and hare hunting
Shooting pheasant and hare in the Great Hungarian Plane
The eastern part of Hungary forms a huge, continous plain with an intensive cultivation of grain and corn. In this area we are able to provide excellent brown hare and pheasant shooting opportunities for groups of 4-12 persons.
The daily bag is between 15-20 pieces of game/hunter. Half of the bag contains hare and the other half is pheasant.
We organize shootings to different territories of private hunting associations, these fields vary in size from 5000 to 15000 ha.
Apart from the shooters there are also 8-15 beaters taking part with dog-leaders among them as well.
Huntings are held in the form of walking up shooting, but sometimes – for the sake of a better result – some of the shooters block the way of the hares and pheasants not to escape from the beat too early.
The accommodation is usually provided in small hotels and pensions in a 20 kms area around the hunting-grounds.
Although the beginning of the hunting season 1st October we suggested arriving after 15th October.
Shooting hare is permitted until 31st December, pheasant is until end of February. In some areas we can extend the hunting by shooting driven mallard in the morning or afternoon

The 12000 hectares hunting-ground of Kereki has got excellent natural endowments. It’s situated on the South coast of Lake Balaton, at a distance of 20 kms from Siófok and is managed by SEFAG shareholding company. Near Kereki, we also dispose of further 3-6000 hectare areas which have the same characteristics as a Kereki itself.

Thanks to the excellent game population and the high standard management of the area, in the last years we’ve been able to offer a quite secure guarantee of the bag to satisfy the requirements of each group. We organize boar drives both in open and fenced areas. A great advantage of our hunt is that in the neighbourhood of each and every area of ours there’s also a possibility of hunting pheasants and mallards, so the different kinds of hunting can be combined according to the demand of the group. Due to the aboundant opportunities eventually 4 days of driving may be organized in the hunting-grounds that are situated close to each other. We usually make 3-6 drives a day, depending on the weather and the size of the area included in the beat. In the boar drives, according to the number of group members, a bag of 5-15 pieces/day can be expected in the open areas, while in the closed hunting-grounds the same number can reach 40-100 pcs/day. In some of the areas, red deer hinds and fallow does can be brought down in the small drive.
