In one of Europe’s far corners is a free-range Chamois hunt that many would rank as arguably the best out there. Living in this region of the Suva-Planina mountains is a thriving population of Balkan chamois that rivals any other. Hunts are scenic, and while challenging, not overly brutal, making them very rewarding. With a long season, Balkan Chamois can be hunted from late August to the end of December, with the rut occurring in November.
At x3 all-inclusive 1x1 guided hunting days, these Chamois packages are not lengthy yet boast near 100% success rates year after year. Hunters are welcome to add any additional days if desired, but not usually necessary. Game management is strict and meticulous, and these Chamois are harvested on a quota basis per unit to ensure excellent genetics, sustainability and trophy quality. Most hunters can usually add a second Chamois (permit depending) to their hunt if desired for a fairly priced flat-rate trophy fee, only due upon success. While not always available, the region also boasts a healthy Red Stag and Wild Boar population, that can occasionally be combined with on certain Chamois hunts.
What resonates long after a hunter returns home is not only the incredible views or Chamois numbers seen, but the warm hospitality of the hosts and guides/stalkers. As well as the incredible fresh, local and traditional cuisine, wines, beers and liquors. An exciting and memorable mountain hunting adventure, often best experienced with a fellow hunting partner or non-hunting observer, with lots to see or do while already in Europe.
"For anyone seeking a great free-range European mountain hunt in a target-rich environment and amazingly beautiful country - this one should be at the top of your list. Adrian provided a detailed trip summary which answered nearly every one of my questions before I even needed to ask them. Thanks Adrian and TAIGA!"

"I have hunted Europe several times now, this being the second chamois hunt that Adrian/TAIGA helped arrange. In my opinion, Macedonia easily offers one of the best European mountain hunts. The guides went above and beyond, we saw large numbers of chamois, multiple shooters, and I ended the hunt with a big medal class billy!"
