Come hunt with us in Hungary for the majestic King of the Forest, the Red Stag. Free range Red Stag’s require the combination of traditional, skillful stalking and calling techniques to successfully outsmart the highly alert and spooky females who surround these Stags during the roar. If you hope to close the distance on a spectacular roaring stag, you better be prepared to have nerves of steel and the patience of a sniper. If you have never experienced the roar, you are in for a serious shot of adrenaline and adventure.
Don’t be fooled, these are 100% wild Red Stags so when you see roaring bulls up close battling for dominance- you will know that you are truly in hunters heaven. In the predawn you will find yourself sitting up high in the calm and quiet until suddenly the silence is shattered by the roar that announces the King’s appearance. You owe it to yourself to hunt Red Stag in their natural environment and experience why Red Stag’s are one of the most desired trophies in the world.
You may ask yourself, why come hunt Stags in Hungary? Well our Hungarian Red Deer are wild animals, not pen raised or genetically modified. You will be hunting 100% wild animals in their native setting and because of Hungary’s management we have the population and genetics to make sure you have the Red Stag hunt of a lifetime.
Over the past few decades there have been a number of World Class trophies that have come out of Hungary and can speak to the quality of our game and our hunting. In fact, each year there are approximately 50,000 red deer harvested with almost 13,000 of those being Stags.
Red Deer hunting is the most popular and sought after trophy hunt in Hungary. As a result of our management and selective harvesting our natural genetics are second to none. In fact it is now possible to harvest wild free range Red Stags with 10-12kg of Antler Weight. These stags are massive animals weighing 250-300 kg and producing racks with up to 16-20 points. Under optimal weather conditions, the rutting season lasts for the entire month of September, much like North American Elk. During the rut you will typically find a Mature Stag with a harem of 8-12 hinds and 3-4 accompanying satellite stags.
