Austria is a relatively unknown hunting destination, even though the country has good populations of chamois, ibex, red and roe deer in a breathtaking alpine setting. Moreover Austrian hunting abounds with traditions - there is no better place to experience central European hunting traditions with its associated woolen loden clothes, lederhosen and Tyrol hats decorated with the “gamsbart” (a trophy traditionally made from the winter coat of the chamois and worn on hats).
We offer hunting on an excellent district in the beautiful state of Kärnten (Carinthia) where we have been helping our customers realise their dreams of hunting big alpine chamois for many years now. Here both your physical fitness and your hunting skills will really be put to the test. Further we also have access to good areas for Alpine ibex, red stag, mouflon and roebuck.
