Hunting fields of Szatmár-Bereg

Although the Szatmár-Bereg Region is in the eastern most corner of Hungary, on the Hungarian-Rumanian-Ukrainian border, we recommend this area to our clients because of the excellent roebuck hunting and because the landscape here has a special atmosphere and the people here are very hospitable and warm hearted. Guests, who are prepared to drive for several hours from Budapest towards the east can expect a special roebuck hunting experience in April and May as well as during rutting. The professional hunters are proud of the old roebucks which live here and usually have dark coloured, well pearled antlers. The quality of the trophies is good. Antlers with a weight of about 500 g are no rarity.

These roebuck with the wonderful trophies come from nearby Carpathians and Transylvania and find an excellent habitat along the rivers Tisza, Szamos, Túr and Kraszna. There is plenty of water here and this shows in the vegetation. The bushes and reeds along the waterways, the marshy meadows, the orchards and oak tree woods, as well as the cultivated ground offer the game shelter and food. This biotope offers roe deer and other small game as well as waterfowl ideal conditions, although there are red deer and wild boars in some parts of the area.
Roebuck hunting in the spring usually is done from a vehicle, but it is also possible to stalk or use raised hides. During rutting a roe-caller is used, which offers guests as well as professional hunters an unforgettable experience.
Small game is shot on traditional drive hunts, and the mornings and evenings offer an ideal chance to shoot waterfowl.

This 7,817 ha hunting area is on the Bereki plains in the administrational region of Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg in the most eastern part of Hungary, and the forests of Bockereki get their name from the plains. This hunting area which is on the Ukrainian border is one of the coldest areas on the Alföld (Hungarian Great Plains). There is a lot of still water in the area which offers all game, waterfowl and other birds an ideal habitat. Even our ancestors loved hunting in the Bereger woods. Oak, ash and elm trees are characteristic for this area along with the forests in the flood plains.
