Hunting in Hungary is world-famous. The challenge is not to shoot a smaller roe buck too early. Just be patient, and you will find a big one. It is more like hunting rabbits more than hunting deer. So much fun! Hunting is mostly done in the plains and farms which consist of farmland with 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.
You will drive to an area and then the driver will drop you and your guide off off to begin stalking (Europeans call hunting “stalking”). Shooting distances will range from 15 to 200 yards, but a typical shot is 100-150 yards. Would you rather drive in the vehicle until you spot a deer and then stalk from there, or drive to a point and get out and still hunt until you spotted a deer to begin your stalk? We can set that up.
Hungary has Great Trophy Quality
You’ll be hunting mature bucks that are up to 7-8 years old. At a certain point, roe deer begin to either get larger and go non-typical, or the antlers can go downhill and start to get smaller. Europeans pride themselves on harvesting mature 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 you walk up on your harvest you will probably be under-impressed with the size of the deer itself. After a day or so of hunting this game though, you start to realize how awesome they are to hunt.
Make it a Combo Hunt
This is a natural combo hunt, you can easily add a boar hunt or driven pheasants on the side. Take our word for it…at least do a day of pheasant hunting. It is insane how many birds you will kick up in the fields.
Bow Hunting Roe Deer is Amazing
If you’re a bowhunter, we recommend you take your bow with you. 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.
Unbelievable one day hunt. I thank Mat Cervantes for putting me on another awesome European hunt. I’ve been on two European hunting trips with Outdoor International and have harvested 2 Gold and 2 Silver Medal animals.
