Hunting in Macedonia

Karadzica




OVERVIEW

Along with Alpine race, Balkan chamois probably has the largest distribution among all the subspecies of chamois. Although it can be hunted in a number of different countries, Macedonia probably offers the best opportunity to the trophy hunters due to it’s healthy population of chamois. The area where we hunt these creatures holds a population of 3500 animals.





HOW TO ARRIVE

Macedonia has only one international, yet small airport in the capitol city of Skopje. Prague may be the best option to land in Europe before taking off for Macedonia. Turkish airlines also fly 3 times a week from Istanbul. The camp is within easy reach from the airport. It takes about an hour on a good asphalt road.




AREAS, ALTITUDE, METHOD

There is a national park called Karadzica in the outskirts of Skopje where a good population of Balkan chamois live. Adjacent to the park there are also several other places where one can pursue these game animals out of the same camp. The area is also rich in diversity which gives the hunter an option for a combination hunt.

The altitude for the hunting grounds varies between 5000’ – 7000’ according to chosen area for the hunt. Reaching the areas every morning takes about 45 – 60 minutes by car and then some walking before spotting the animals is in order.




SEASON, WEATHER, ACCOMMODATION

The hunting season for chamois in Macedonia runs from August 1 through December 31. However, the period between October 25- November 15 when the rut is on seems to be the best time as with all other game animals. The weather is usually warm and nice during this period.

The hunters are accommodated in a nice hunting lodge with three guest rooms and a large living room. The food is excellent and the wine is quite cheap.




DAY BY DAY ITINERARY

Most of our hunts are completed in one single day. However as hunting goes, a second or third day may be needed in some cases. Therefore we plan our hunts for three hunting days.

Day 01. Arrival to Skopje and transfer to the area.

Day 02-04. Hunt Balkan chamois

Day 05. Drive back to airport and return home.
