Program Information

The Carpathian chamois is considered the biggest of all chammy subspecies. The length of its black hooked horns is usually bigger than all the other sub-species and its winter fur, combining black, orange, and white colors, make it one of the most beautiful game animals in Europe. The hunting of an old trophy is a real challenge for the mountain hunters.

We hunt in two different areas: the Fagaras mountains, the highest mountains in the south of the Carpathians range, where the World Record was harvested in 1937. Most of the biggest trophies of Carpathian chamois have been taken in this privileged area. Altitude from 1500 to 2500 mt. It´s a demanding area and the hunter must be in a good shape.

The second area is Valcea, close to the Cozia mountain, between 1400 and 1900 mts altitude.  Hunting biotope is a mix between forest and some rocky areas, combined with cliffs and grass slopes. We have 100% of success the last 5 years, and each season we harvest some medal class “boucs”. Some areas have good access by car and are adapted to all kind of physical conditions.

Carpatian chamois belongs to Capra Grand Slam list.

Hunting season

September 15th   to  January 31th. Rut time is from mid October and we highly recommend you the hunting in this month, when the old males, who are hided in the forest during the rest of the year, join the herds of females. It´s from October up to December when the biggest trophies are taken.


We hunt in two territories: Fagaras mountains and Valcea area. The world record chamois of all sub-species was taken in the same lands where we hunt, scoring 141,1 CIC points.
