Vadex Mezőföld J.S.C.

These historical hunting areas, well known all over Europe, have been managing game for many years with great success. About 1,500-2,000 heads of game and 10,000 game birds are shot per year, mostly by foreign hunters. The excellent quality of the game and the high level of the hunts and service lure more and more hunters to Mezőföld.

Székesfehérvár and Sárrét with its reed-beds and rivers were always an Eldorado for fish and water fowl. The forests of the Bakony and Vértes mountains the woods and meadows were even earlier full of game.
It was probably important that Prince Géza laid the foundation stone for Székesfehérvár in 1972 in the heart of the region. This oldest of the Hungarian towns, where in the later centuries 37 Hungarian kings were crowned and 14 kings were buried, was the most important culture and trade centre up until the time of the Turks. Many royal hunts are immortalized in the chronicles of the town.
Later the forests were planted by the land owners who imported game and built fences. During the World Wars the game was almost completely extinct. The Mezőföld Forestry manages 16,500 ha of forest and hunting areas of 30,000 ha.

This J.S.C. has the biggest and best stocked fenced areas in Hungary, with very good opportunities for hunting all game.
Vért (Red deer, wild boar and fallow deer) 875 ha
Fehérvárcsurgó (Red deer, wild boar and fallow deer) 842 ha
Tímár (Red deer, wild boar and fallow deer) 819 ha
Vál (Red deer, wild boar, fallow deer and moufflon) 653 ha
Vadhányás (Wild boar) 510 ha
Soponya (Wild boar) 436 ha
Tác-Belsőbáránd (Wild boar) 563 ha


One particular advantage of hunting in fenced areas is that the hunting seasons do not apply. So one can hunt behind fences at such times when it is not permitted in the wide open.

The hunting clients of Vadex J.S.C. have also many other opportunities for leisure activities besides hunting: relaxing, taking pictures, videos, driving with a horse and coach or fishing. The quietness and the fresh air will help you unwind. The hunting lodges belonging to the Vadex J.S.C. are situated in the woods and very suitable for guests, who wish to get away from it all, whilst enjoying Hungarian dishes.
