Chamois Bulgaria





Informations about chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra)

The chamois is a species of wild goats native to Europe and Asia Minor. Weights up to 40 kg and shoulder heights of up to 85 cm can be reached. Characteristic of both sexes are the horns and the pale yellow to yellow-gray skin with black dorsal stripe in summer, and the dark gray to black skin in winter. In the winter the bucks form up to 25 cm long back hairs with a bright tip, that is the so-called "Gamsbart".

The main ranges are in the Alps, but also other European mountain ranges from Spain to Bulgaria. Also New Zealand has good populations. The chamois lives depending on subspecies and region in altitudes from 700 m to over 3,000 m.

The does live with the fawns in small herds of about 15 to 30 pieces. In case of danger they give a whistling warning sound. Bucks are rather solitary most of the time. During the rut (mid-November to mid-December), they move to the does.

Chamois are excellent climbers and have outstanding abilities to see, hear and smell.

In Bulgaria we hunt the Balkan chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra balcanica). From the trophy and body strength it is comparable to the alpine chamois. The horns usually bring it up to 80 - 90 CIC points.

Hunting season/hunting method

Hunting is primarily on the stalk. During the day, the promising slopes will be observed. When the chamois appear the harder part begins. Now it is necessary to make the ascent carefully to surpass the height of the chamois or at least reach the same height. If then there is a suitable chamois, it is important to get a good shot. As with all mountain hunts, the shooting distances are slightly higher than usual.


The clothes should be adapted to the season you want to hunt. Windproof and breathable clothing and well-worn, the ankle-stabilizing footwear are generally recommended in mountain hunts.

When hunting in the mountains you shoot more often at long distances than usual and therefore you should definitely have a variable target optics with appropriate magnification. Likewise,  powerful binoculars (at least 10x magnification), a spotting scope and a rangefinder are very helpful.

For hunting chamois you can use all common calibers from 6,5 mm and higher.


During your stay you will live in well-developed hunting lodges within the hunting district, which are usually comfortably equipped. The sanitary facilities meet western standards and the food is of good quality. In Bulgaria, even the more demanding hunters will find accommodation that should meet their requirements.
