CARNIVORES OF CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE.
EURASIAN BROWN BEAR (SCI Species ID E 17)
The European Brown Bear is often underestimated in its size by international hunters. Old Bears can reach a live weight of +700lbs and a head to body length of 6-8 feet. Brown bears in Europe can be hunted in Croatia and Slovenia but Romania is without doubt the place to go for the overseas trophy hunter looking for an exceptional majestic animal. The Bear population in Romania is high and has to be managed. It is not uncommon to see over 10 Bears per afternoon hunt.
We also organize driven hunts for Brown Bears in Romania where groups also have a chance to hunt boars, wolves and lynx according to available licenses.
EUROPEAN GREY WOLF (SCI Species ID E 39)
The Wolf population in some parts of Europe is high and growing. Even so due to political issues licenses are not abundant. In Central Europe Romania is the place to go but the hunter has to be patient to outfox these very smart animals.
EURASIAN LYNX (SCI Species ID E 30)
Lynx are tremendously shy animals that are seldom seen by humans due to their extremely good senses. The best populations are in the remote regions of Romania where huge old toms can be found.
EUROPEAN WILD CAT (SCI Species ID E 51)
Significantly smaller than the Lynx the Wild Cat is the second of the two Wild Cats roaming in Europe. The bushy tail identifies it clearly from the domestic cats. Hunting is done mainly by night. Serbia and Croatia are the main countries where Wild Cats can be found in sustainable numbers and licenses are issued.
"In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen."
Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)
