  1. in open field they will do little damages, they love to stalk in the forests
  2. In areas where we have a lynx family, roe completely disappears in 2-3 years. They are moving away from danger or they are eaten. I'm saying this from experience, I'm not quoting here from National Geographic or from some TV documentary.
  3. No need to go to Africa for seeing hypocritical "green" behavior. In Romania we are forced to fully protect bears, wolves and lynxes only because we had bad representatives when we negotiated EU membership. The management of big predators was well organized, hunting ~400-500 bears each year and still maintaining a strong population. Now everything is out of controls, human attacks are often, crop and cattle damages are high (and rarely paid!) and revenge killing is a common thing. Bunch of "conservationists" from Germany, France or Holland are lecturing us on how to coexists! It is simply outraging
  4. I don't know the situation from Scotland
  5. they could put down even adult male stags (even big stags, like ours from Romania). They will stalk from high points (trees or cliffs) and jump at the throat of the the prey. The most affected game will be roe deer. Of course, it will need hiding points to stalk and large forest areas in order to avoid humans. It is very shy. Human attacks are very rare but they exists. Damage in domestic animals are not so bad as the ones from wolves or bears but they exist (especially lambs and goats) The wild cats from the area will be killed and pushed back.
  6. It is always fun to search for roe bucks in rut season, you have good chances to see some old males that are forgetting the safety measures for a while. This one came up to 2m from me Not too heavy but with long antlers and an unique configuration
  7. Thank you all! I just realized that the last post on this topic was from 2018. I was annoyed back then by the fact that I encountered some weird error while posting the story behind one of my roebucks. I'm posting bellow some of my dearest memories related to roebuck hunting, the ones that I managed to shot open sight. They are not the biggest ones on my wall, but the ones that helped me to improve my hunting skills This is my personal best in terms of distance. I managed to get close until I was 6m away from him Not enough vegetation to use as cover for this one. Solution: crawling for 30m. In the evening I also found 5 ticks on my belly! Nasty little creatures! Heart shot at ~70m
  8. As I said on another topic, this year I started late the season due to expanding family and to the damn COVID-19 outbreak. Roe deer hunting is one of my favorite hunts and I was surprised to notice that is July and I have no new buck on my wall. Also, my wife started to complain because she wanted some good pasta with roe deer minced meat and the freezer was full only with wild boar meat . I try in each year to hunt one roe buck with this little rifle (Mannlicher Schonauer mod 1903, in 6.5x54MS) that belonged to a dear friend of mine that now is in "the lands of eternal hunting". For my personal pleasure, I try to do it open sights. After a very hot day and a loooong wait, I started to loose the hope. The gamekeeper also wanted to move, hoping that we will see some male in the last 15 min while going back to our car. I insisted to remain, because the old males should came out at the last light of the day, especially when is very hot outside. And I was right! I was barely able to see it when he came out of the woods. The wind was perfect and I had to wait for him to get closer because I was unable to see it trough mechanical sights when aiming at long distance. He came in about 30m and managed to surprise me due to some thick bushes and ... I missed The buck was surprised and stopped 10m further. Luckily, I'm reloading instantly after I take a shot and I was able to take him with the second one. The joy was immense, especially when I noticed the unique design and the thickness of the trophy. A picture with the trophy before whitening
  9. I had little time for hunting lately because I have been very busy due to family expanding (my first daughter, hopefully she will become a huntress ) and to some work responsibilities. However, I managed to stalk 2 nice boars (a good size 4-5 years male and a gold medal old tusker). The green grass of the spring was irresistible for them and the full moon provided enough light for my trusted Leica Magnus 2.4-16x56. The first one is the young male. A very well developed for his age. I feel sorry somehow for hunting him, a male like this will become a gold medal in another ~3 years. The old tusker came 2 weeks after. This one was starting to have problems feeding himself and would get weak and "surrender" to wolves in maximum 2 years The Norma Oryx bullet worked perfectly in both cases (not that would be very important in an ear shot ) When I will have some time, I will mount the tusks on proper wooden boards. Until then, they are filled with epoxy resin and oiled to prevent cracking.
  10. After receiving the invitation, I started to clean the oil from my usually unused shotgun. Then I put 3 alarms to be able to wake up at 2am and drive ~150km until the hunting area. The day was windy and cold with some thin ice near shores but the place was excellent - a huge are filled with artificial lakes and not harvested rice fields near the Danube. I was a terrible shot but I somehow managed to shot 24 ducks from 6:30 until 1 pm (2 of them not in the pictures, destroyed by prey birds before having the chance to recover them). Drive back home for another 2h and then start taking off the feathers, burning the skin for any remaining ones and extract all the internal organs until ...4am. Too much work, next time I will offer some of them as "gifts" to my friends. The reward was sweet after I picked up a young one for getting the breast out and quickly throwing that in a hot pan with garlic, butter, salt, pepper, white wine and some oranges at the end For all the other ones, I will cook them in the oven, filled with dry plums and oranges and with cabbage on the side.
  11. I'm always keeping the bones of the hunted animals. The spine will add a great flavor to any soup. One of my favorite delicacy is this one: the big round bones from a red stag put in a hot oven until the bone marrow is boiling inside (~30-45 min, depending on the temperature) To be served hot with salt & pepper, on toasted bred and with some Merlot.
  12. I had a very busy summer and I was unable to hunt as often as in the last years, but I could not miss the first night with full moon and no clouds. Especially now, when the first apples and plums are falling from the trees and the wild boars are looking for them the entire night. I was lucky and I had my chance for a few second with this big boy here (>200kg of skin, bones and muscles. A little amount of fat). It is considered very big for mountain area because here the food is not so easy to find (no crops in the area for at least 20km south). I was able to see only his back for a while but he exposed a little bit of his right side for half of a second just before entering a thick bush. I took the shot and the bullet smashed his ribs (2 broken at entry), completely destroyed the lungs (the heart was missed only with 5 cm), broke another rib at exit and remained in the thick armor skin of the left shoulder, in front of the first left leg. The bad part was that it was a moving target and he was able to make a jump. Right after that bush, it was a deep slope (~20 m deep) and we had to use a winch to pull him out Then we had to drink hot coffee and talk for another 3 hours while the meet was cooling enough to be put in the freezer. Norma Oryx 18.5g, impeccable again Not a huge tusker compared with his body size but is still a beautiful trophy. The right fang was longer with 1 cm.
  13. A nice summer morning, a young roebuck, some fresh mushrooms, hot chili peppers, garlic, juniper seeds, white wine. Mix them all and don't burn the meat Then...enjoy!
  14. The permit for the other one is sold, the offer from this topic is no longer available
  15. For the ones that are looking for adrenaline, nothing beats a driven hunt for bears The animals are running and are chased by dogs. Hard to beat that Anyway, one of the problem bears was shot by a gamekeeper a few days ago after he was spotted near the village. The stomach was full of pork meat and he had the teethes damaged (possible after he was trying to escape a snare). It's a male and is evaluated at ~400 CIC points.
