LÁBOD

Nr. of the hunting field: 81

This area, 70 km south of the Lake Balaton, is one of the best known and best stocked hunting areas in Hungary and probably in Europe as well. The area of 48,000 ha near Nagyatád is flat and belonged for sixty years to the State. Since 2004 it is part of the Lábod Forestry which belongs to the SEFAG Zrt. In recognition of its work in game management, Labod received the CIC Edmond Blanc Prize in 1994.
The forests are spreading continually and exceed in the meantime 40%. Numerous large and small streams, which are almost always called Rinya, together with many still waters enrich the biotope. The woods and coppices, the sprawling meadows and almost 3,000 ha cultivated with food for the game offer an ideal habitat for the animals.
Red deer stags are the most important game species and their quality is one of the best in the world. About 800 red deer are shot per year: 120 of these are trophy stags. Amongst the many excellent trophies the stag shot in 2001, with an antler weight of 16.83 kg, stands out. These antlers, assessed by international measurers, received 265.67 points and is the world’s number seven trophy. Annually 1,000 wild boars are shot and these hunts offer interesting and exciting experiences. Apart from the drive hunts in the open areas there is also a possibility to hunt in the wild boar fenced area of 200 ha, which was built in 1998. In this area there is also the chance to shoot woodcock, which was greatly appreciated by the author Lásló Studinka. Pheasant hunting is possible (and hopefully in the future also partridge as they are returning to this area). Single hunting, still, stalking and in winter with horse and sleigh are the most successful hunting methods, and many hunters come back to Lábod every year.
