Yes, but at least when it comes to roe deer in Central Europe you can almost always choose to hunt according to a price list with fixed prices just like in Africa. This model implies that you agree with the booking agent upon a fixed price, but the guide then later charges the booking agent "by the inch". You will of course pay a premium because the agent takes on a risk, but on the other hand you are guaranteed that the guide will work hard to find you the biggest possible deer.You are correct - my apologies - I painted the Continent with a pretty broad brush. However, it is pretty much the universal model through Spain, Germany, Austria, France's Alpine region, and much of central Europe - at least when hunting high game. I have not hunted Scandinavia. Russian Red Stag are certainly marketed by medal class. I would suspect that covers about 90% of the territory hunted by foreign hunters on the Continent.
