Hunting in Croatia

Dalmatian Peninsula




OVERVIEW

As it is described by some, European mouflon is the ‘’best dressed‘’ of all the wild sheep around the world. With its spectacular coloration, big or small any mouflon specimen is an essential part of a trophy room. European mouflon is considered to be indigenous to the Mediterranean islands of Corsica and Sardinia. But because of the introductions that were made in the past two centuries, they are now widely distributed throughout Europe. However for the serious trophy hunters Croatia has become synonymous with the mouflon hunting because of the enormously big trophies that were collected in this country in the past couple of years. The attraction of mouflon hunting in Croatia is not only about collecting exceptional trophies but also doing so in a natural beauty of the country, unlike many other European countries where hunting takes place in high fenced areas. 





HOW TO ARRIVE

Zagreb, another international airport, is the port of entry for the ones in pursuit of big European mouflon. This is where the hunters are welcomed by our partner company representative. As you may not be able to fly into Croatia directly, the best idea is to first research which European city you can fly to reasonably easily. But London, Frankfurt and Rome seems to be the good cities to fly to in order to get connecting flights to Croatia.




AREAS, ALTITUDE, METHOD

Mouflon can be hunted both on the beautiful islands (Tijat islands) or Peliesac peninsula in Dalmatian cost along the Adriatic sea. Most hunting areas are along the cost line and overlooking the Adriatic sea which offers stunning view to the hunters. Although the highest point in the area is around 5500 feet, the hunt takes place at anywhere between 1000-3000 feet.

Hunting mouflon is carried out throughout the day, by actively searching for rams and stalking. It is not so difficult to find gold medal rams here which starts approximately at 80 cm especially during the rutting time. There are a good number of trophies here at the range of 80 – 90 cm ( approx 31’’ ½ -35 ‘’ ½ ).




SEASON, WEATHER, ACCOMMODATION

As with all other sheep hunting, the best period is the rutting time which is any time from late September through November 15th. However it is possible to hunt mouflon year round except the hottest period of the summer time as they tend to stay in shade and do not move until the last light. The weather for the most part of year in Croatia is sunny and warm. Other than being the rut, the weather conditions in October and early November at it’s best, not so warm and not so cool.

A number of good and clean hotels as well as some private lodgings are used as a means of accommodations. Since the area is a touristic destination, hotel standards are quite high and offers nice and clean lodging. Therefore this hunt may be considered as a family type of hunt – vacation.
