Red stag Bulgaria


The dream of many hunters is to bag a very strong red stag once. Bulgaria offers the best opportunities if you want to hunt in the wild. In the fertile lowlands in the north-east of the country, the conditions for red deer are ideal and the strict hunting and shooting guidelines ensure excellent game quality. From mid-September you can experience the impressive rut of the red deer in Bulgaria and hunt the stag of your lifetime. Such a natural spectacle is the best setting for an unforgettable hunt.


Informations about red deer (Cervus elaphus)

The red deer is a widespread species of the real deer. The main distribution areas spread over much of Europe, and it has also been successfully reintroduced in some areas of South and North America, as well as in New Zealand. Due to the high adaptability of this species, red deer can be found in many different habitats. In wooded highlands and high mountains, the almost treeless landscape of Scotland, the humid floodplains of southeastern Europe or the hot and dry plains of Spain, there are good populations.

Red deer can reach weights of up to 350 kg, depending on the habitat and the range offered, with a shoulder height of up to 150 cm.

The adult hinds form herds with their offspring. Younger stags also form smaller herds, whereas the older stags roam alone or with a smaller stag most of the time. During the rutting, the strongest deer keep a female pack. The distinctive roaring of the deer is then heard far and an impressive natural spectacle.

The trophy is very different in branching variety and strength depending on habitat.

Red deer have an excellent hearing, sense of smell and eyesight.

In Bulgaria we hunt the Central European red deer (Cervus elaphus hippelophus). The trophies reach international top values for hunting in the wild. The national record is an antler weight of 16.2 kg and 273.60 CIC.

Hunting method/hunting season

In Bulgaria, the rut starts in mid-September and during this time you have the best chances.

You will hunt from a raised hide. Under the guidance of an experienced deer hunter you will follow the rut and wait for a suitable stag. 


The equipment does not have any special requirements for this hunt. The clothes should be adapted to the late summer, it is best to bring a set of a little warmer and a set of lighter clothing with you. It can be warm as summer or cool as autumn. In addition, you should of course take good binoculars with 8x or higher magnification, to be able to spot the deer correctly. You can use all common calibre sizes from 7 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.
