HUNTING IN AUSTRIA

Perhaps not so well known is the fact that Austria has some fantastic hunting for Chamois, mountain Red Stags and Russian Boar. Through good friends we have been able to gain access to some excellent hunting areas for Chamois.

The cultural opportunities for a non-hunting companion or in addition to a hunting tour are endless. Accommodations may vary between a small hotel in the valley and a hunting cabin in the mountains. That also depends on the species you plan to hunt, the time of year and the snow level.

Austria only allows hunting with rifles and usual shot distances seldom exceed 200 yards. The game populations are in such good conditions that the guide will be very selective of the animal he will allow the client to shoot. For the largest part the hunter has to manage the game populations in Europe by taking out the weak and the sick and to keep the populations at a healthy level to prevent crop damage or large epidemics that could wipe out whole herds.

That is perhaps the largest difference to our style of hunting here in North America. Hunting that way in Austria is not only very successful but also very enjoyable since you will see so much game and have a chance to watch and get to know it a bit in its natural habitat.

Hunting in AustriaOn a usual hunting day you will get up well before daylight and have a light breakfast. You and your guide usually pack a little food and perhaps a thermos of tea or coffee for snack time. Depending on where the trip will be based out of you might leave on foot right from the cabin or you might drive to a specific place first before the hunt begins.

Most hunting is done in a combination of walking and sitting at strategic places and doing the traditional spot and stalk. Good optics is extremely valuable on this hunt. They are not just important to find game but also to see and identify the particular animal the guide picked out for the client. A small good quality camera is something we highly recommend especially on this hunt. At lunchtime we usually meet back at the cabin or hotel and plan on going out for the evening hunt that afternoon.
