Romania is one of the few countries in Europe that still retains its true wilderness character. Bison, Wolves, brown bears, chamois and wild boar inhabit the forests, and along with the three species of deer roe,red and fallow.
The country offers a wide variety of hunting experiences, from rustic hunts by carriage for roe deer to classic hunts for red stags in sprawling forests, to hunts in the dead of winter for wild boars and wolves. It has one of the largest areas of undisturbed forest in Europe.
Roe and wild boar hunts may take place in open areas, while red deer and brown bear are often be hunted in heavily forested regions. Hunting methods vary, depending on species and location, and you may use more than one method during any hunt so it may be necessary to have clothing appropriate for both walking and standing. Driven hunts are common for most species.
While Chamois hunts take place at high elevations so prepare as you would for any mountain hunt. Winter hunts for wolves and wild boar take place in extremely cold weather from stands.
