The small Republic of North Macedonia is a safe and friendly country, with hospitable people and an excellent gastronomy mixing Greek, Turkish and typical cuisine from the Mediterranean basin. It is a perfect destination for a short trip of 4/5 days, both in August, where you can combine with family vacations. But the most amazing season for the chamois hunting is from mid-October to begin of November, during the rut.
Balkan chamois is one of the 10 sub-species of chammys whose hunting is currently open, and it´s part of the Capra Grand Slam.
In Macedonia we find the highest concentration of Balkan chamois in the world. Altitude is between 1500 to 2500 meters, normally in an alpine biotope, on the border between the black pine forest and the grassy slopes. The mountains are stunningly beautiful, and the number of chamois, especially in some Reserves, is unmatched. In the Mavrovo area, which we recommend in case you want to hunt a trophy chamois: it is easy to spot more than 70 or 80 chamois in a single day.
An English-speaker translator will be permanently with the hunters from their arrival in Skopje.
From August 1st to December 31th. Females from October 1st to December 31th. The best time is late October, during the rut. For the combination with wolf, December is recommended.
