The air is crisp and clear, the open sky high above you. You can feel the effects of the stalk in your legs. The chamois is grazing on a ledge high above. It is a difficult shot..... the way down the mountain with a freshly shot chamois in your rucksack is an indescribable experience!

Over the years we have sent many hunters to our Maltatal district in Kärten, where the experienced gamekeeper Ferdinand Kargl takes care of the hunting. Here you can hunt from the start of August to the end of December. During the summer the chamois stay high up in the mountains, setting a real challenge to the hunters fitness. Towards the end of the season, from mid-November onwards - the chamois are in their shining black winter coat, and can normally be found further down towards the valley.
Our hunt package includes four days accommodation in the charming inn in Gmünd and two days hunting for chamois with a very experienced guide. It is also possible to stay in a simple hunting cabin in the hunting district, which will help cut down time used in transport, but here you will have to cook all your own meals. We can warmly recommend combining chamois hunt with a family holiday - there are plenty of things for the whole family to enjoy in Austria during both summer and winter.
