AH2 – Fallow Buck Hunt – Adria Hunt
Fallow Deer Hunting in Croatia
Croatia is among the rare countries that can boast of having a tradition of organized hunting more than 120 years old. It is a beautiful country, and you may recognize it if you watch Game of Thrones. Kings Landing is filmed in Croatia.
The Romans were the first to bring fallow deer to the Adriatic area over 1,000 years ago and they have flourished since then. The trophy quality on this hunt is excellent to good.
