Europe: Austria

Austria is also called the land of castles and palaces or the Alpine republic. And not without reason, because a large part of the country is characterized by the Alps. This picturesque, but also rugged mountain landscape provides a magnificent backdrop for hunting chamois, marmot and even the black grouse. Especially the chamois hunt attracts many hunters to Austria every year. Hunting in the Alps for chamois is of course a challenge, but success makes forget all the effort. Every hunter should have experienced the courtship of the Black Cock once in his life. It is an unforgettable event when in the early morning hours the first black grouse starts humming and plodding on the courts and then the roosters carry out their courtship fights. Experience this exciting hunt for chamois, black grouse or marmots.
