    Hello again,
    as I promised in my presentation, I am back with a description about species and hunting methods, as said a fellow hunter from the forum "in my part of world" - Romania.

    Red stag ( Cervus elaphus)
    Period of hunt:
    - male: 1 september - 31 december
    - female and youth: 1 september - 15 february
    Optimal period from the male is during the rut. It is influenced by the weather, when is cold weather is start faster, about 15 september - 10 october.
    We have 3 different types of hunting areas with forest: in the plain, hills and mountains. In the plain we can combine with other hunted species: roe deer, fallow deer, wild boar, and start to 1 october with wild pheasant. In hills area can hunt also: roe deer, wild boar, wolf and brown bear. In mountains area combine with: chamois, wild boar, wolf and brown bear.
    Hunting methods: stalking and waiting in hight seat.

    Fallow deer (Dama dama)
    Period of hunt:
    - male: 1 september - 15 december
    - female and youth: 1 september - 15 february
    Optimal period for the male is during the rut, about 10 october - 10 november
    The hunting areas are in forest plains. In this period we can hunt also: red deer, stag, wild boar and wild pheasant.
    Hunting methods: stalking and waiting in hight seat.

    Roe deer (Capreolus capreolus)
    Is the most huntes species of deers family in Romania. We have very good population, the largest densities are in plain areas.
    Period of hunt:
    - male: 1 may -15 october
    - female and youth: 1 september - 15 february
    Optimal period for the male: 1 may - 15 june(when the vegetation is low) and 20 july - 10 august(during the rut).
    We hunt in plain areas with forests and agricultural crops, or hills areas with forests, agricultural crops and meadows. We can combine with wild boar.
    Hunting methods: stalking and waiting in hight seat.

    Chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra carpatica)
    Is the largest chamois in the world, as body but also like as trophy.
    Period of hunt: 1 september - 15 december
    Optimal period: 1 september - 30 november, before snowing heavily in the mountains.
    We hunt in the Carpathian Mountain. In this type of hunt we need a good physical condition, because we must climb up 3 - 4 hours.
    We have 2 types of hunting area: one lower at altitude of 1000 - 1500 m where the hunt is in the forests areas, another in mountain peaks at 2000 - 2500 m. We can hunt also: red stag, wild boar, brown bear and wolf.
    Hunting method: stalking

    Wild boar (Sus scrofa)
    Wild boars driven hunt is the most popular and excited hunting method in Romania.
    Romania do not have a very very big population of wild boars like others countries, but is the place where if you have luck can hunt bigs males over 250-300 kg.
    Period of hunt:
    - male: all year
    - female and youth: 1 june - 31 january
    Optimal period:
    - waiting at feeding places: january - may ; october - december
    - driven hunt with dogs: 1 november -31 january
    We hunt in forests plains, forest hills and mountains. Depending of the period and hunting area we can combine with: roe deer, stag, fallow deer, chamois, brown bear, wolf and small game.
    Hunting methods: stalking, waiting in hight seat and driven hunt.

    Brown bear (Ursus arctos)
    Romania is the country with the largest population of brown bears in Europe, in this moment it is estimated there are almost 6000. Is the species that makes most damage in agricultural and domestic animals industry.
    Period of hunt: 15 march - 14 may ; 1 october - 31 december
    Optimal period: 1 april - 10 may (waiting in hight seat at feeding places) ; 20 october - 30 november (waiting in hight seat at feeding places and driven hunt).

    Small games
    Hare (Lepus europaeus):
