muflonHungary’s hunting history stretches back to the time of the Romans, for the teeming wildlife of the province of Pannonia was an important source of food. For our ancestors who settled in the Carpathian Basin, the region of fertile soil, rivers and teeming wildlife assured food and survival.
Today hunting is a part of a conscious game economy, but the unspoilt natural environment and all-year-round organised hunts beckon ever more visitors to Hungary to participate in this unforgettable experience. Hungary’s ideal hunting areas are becoming an increasingly popular recreation option.
There are red, fallow and roe deer, wild boar and mouflon, to mention just a few of the larger game: more than one hunter has returned home from the Hungarian woods with a world-class trophy, for many world records were born here. The Plain and the flatlands mostly teem with small game; pheasant, rabbit and wild duck hunting are popular here. In the Bakony, in the vicinity of Lake Balaton, best-known as a summer vacation area, they hunt big game; the Hanság is rich in water game, the most common being the mallard, while the Szalonka is a real hunter’s treat. However, it is not only hunters with guns that will find what they are looking for; the configurations of the terrain guarantee ideal conditions for falconers as well.
Foreign citizens are allowed to hunt in Hungary together with a valid hunting permit from the Hungarian authorities. Conditions for application are a valid hunting contract, a letter of invitation, a gun-license and a permit to bring the weapon into the country.
Hungary has an all-year-round hunting season, each time of year having its own specialities. Moreover, this active recreation also provides an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with Hungarian cuisine and wines, immediately giving three good reasons why it is worth trying out a Hungarian hunting holiday.
