Stalking

In densely settled Central Europe, the hunt is more indispensible than ever. Crop damage in agricultural monocultures as well as the widespread policy of ‘woods before game’ often clouds the joy of hunting on one's own ground to a great extent. What a joy it then becomes to hunt in a country like Hungary, a place where these problems hardly seem to exist.

A heavenly quiet of the sort that is almost never seen anymore in old Germany pervades the hilly landscape of extensive and primeval mixed woodlands that are a paradise not only for red deer but for boar and roe deer as well.

Long-range shooting is regarded as one of the most challenging forms of hunting. Besides outstanding shooting skills, the hunter has to consider many different aspects such as gravity, wind and velocity. Aiming accurately at very long distances and then making a sure shot in a wide open space is definitely an art in itself and requires an incredible amount of experience and skill.

If you as a passionate hunter are interested in long-range shooting, you have to become familiar with ballistics, the science of mechanics that deals with the flight of projectiles. There are two basic yet crucial factors that affect the bullet's flight on a long shot: gravity and wind.

Scandinavia. Desolated and varied landscapes, endless forests and clear lakes make up the nature of the Nordic countries. Scandinavia refers to the cultural, historical and ethnic region of northern Europe, reaching from the Baltic Sea to the Arctic Circle. It includes the three kingdoms of Sweden, Norway and Denmark and additionally the republics of Finland and Iceland.

With such an enormous land area and a relatively small number of inhabitants, large parts of Scandinavia are unoccupied by people. They are also home to numerous species of game and offer unique and exciting hunts. Every country has its unique and special charm.
