Hello dear ones!
I am a new member from Romania. I leave in the mountain area so I like to hunt roe dear, chamois and especially wild boars and big carpathian dears (cervus elaphus).
For hunting, I use a Blaser R8 Professional in two different calibers:
- 9,3x62 barrel equipped with Zeiss V6 2,5-15x56
-7x64 barrel equipped with Schmidt&Bender Polar T96 3-12x54.
I hope to offer good advice and tips just as you do ... And in a few years I can hunt in the beautiful lands of Africa.
Ok!Hi and welcome razvan,
Great trophy photos! Can you please explain a little bit under the circumstances you hunt in Romania? You say that you hunt in a team, is it any type of syndicate? And how do you go about acquiring hunting rights in Romania if you aren’t a landowner? I have been sort of starting to compare information regarding roebuck hunting and found that the trophy prices are surprisingly high in Romania considering that it’s probably one of the least developed European countries (relatively low average income etc.). Trophy prices are in general almost on pair with Hungary and higher than Poland and even the UK. Are these tariffs set by the government? Please, tell us a little bit of how things work in Romania? It would be interesting to know. Thanks!
Thanks, I'm a Northern (Scandinavian). So, I assume it works in a similar way to Poland. If I recall correctly, they also have hunting associations that lease hunting rights. Can you also resell hunts, like they seem to do, directly to visiting hunters or indirectly through agents in order to cover your own costs? Is it correct that the non-Romanian in your team pays additional trophy fees for roe deer, chamois etc., while you as Romanians only pay the fixed price? By the way, the driven hunts for bears that President Ceaușescu was said to engage in is my future dream hunt.Ok!
I understand, you're from U.K.?
In Romania, all hunting funds are private or state-owned by Romsilva.
I am enrolled in a hunting association with 18 friends (I'm the head of the group) and pay an annual fee of apx. 250 euros. Therefore, the prices of a hunting piece for us are following: roebuck - 130euros,wild boar - 220 euros, chamois - 1000 euros and red stag - 1300 euros, (brown bear,wolf,lynx and wild cat are still forbidden in this hunting season).
For people outside of Romania, the price is slightly higher depending on the hunting association. In my hunting group, I also have a friend from US but also a Romanian citizen, so he pays the same as me.
Regarding the roe deer hunt, I know the C.I.C. points that are related to the weight of the trophy must be paid by foreigners.
I hope I have been helpful and I will stay at your disposal!!!
Hello Scandinavia!!!Thanks, I'm a Northern (Scandinavian). So, I assume it works in a similar way to Poland. If I recall correctly, they also have hunting associations that lease hunting rights.

Thanks, I might take you up on that offer some day (and offer another hunt in return). Life is a bit chaotic at the moment, but I will definitely keep it in mind for the future. 12 bears. I assume you have a healthy population of wolves as well. If I recall correctly, it was in Dealu Negru President Ceausescu hunted bears. Is it in the same area that you are hunting?Hello Scandinavia!!!
A hunting association sells hunting to finance its own costs. A member accepted in a hunting association pays equal to all other members (does not pay additional fees). If you want to hunt in Romania then you will pay extra because you are not a permanent member.
One month ago, to a wild boar driven hunt I saw 12 bears ... now hibernates!
If you want to come to hunt in Romania (like a friend), let me know early: roe buck season starts on 15 may,wild boar all year, red stags 1 september!!!
In the mountains area, an association must have at least 10.000 hectares of forest. We are limited in our area (apx. 12.000 hectares).I just finished looking up "mistret 350 Kg." from the number of listings it appears that there are more than just a few of them roaming around. Are you limited in the area that you can hunt or can your association use government owned or public land?
