Marmot

Austria

There is always something fascinating about hunting in the mountains. But in the Ötztal in Tyrol it is even a little more beautiful. Here you can hunt chamois and marmots to your heart's content under the guidance of proven experts. 

 

Informations about marmot (marmota marmota)

Marmots have a body length of 40 to 50 cm. The tail length is between 10 and 20 cm. Adult males weigh between 3 and 4 kg, females slightly less. „Mankeis“, as they are called in Austria, live in large family groups. 

The burrows are often a complex network of interconnecting tunnels and chambers. While the summer burrows are often only 1,5 meters deep, the winter burrows can reach a depth of 5 meters and more. The hibernation of marmots lasts from late October to March.

Hunting season/hunting method

The single hunt and sometimes stalking are the most promising huntning methods for this rodent. You have to be patient, because marmots are very shy, at least in the areas where they are hunted. The hunting season in Tyrol is from 15 August to 30 September. 

Equipment

With the equipment, there is just little to consider. We recommend a small bullet (.22 Hornet, .222 or .223 Remington). We do not recommend larger calibres, as you don´t want to destroy the trophy and marmots are also a tasty delicacy.

It is recommended to choose lightweight and breathable clothing, because you can start to sweat a little during the ascent.

Accomodation

During your stay you will live in a small pension next to the house of the professional hunter. The accommodation is hearty and the family is very hospitable!
