Driven hunts gets into your blood - and for many hunters Poland is permanently linked to their annual hunt on their regular district, where they are coming year after year. That the number of regular customers is as high as it is, is simply due to the quality of these hunts on our many Stateowned districts.
We have access to a wide range of the very best State Forest Districts in western Poland, of which the vast majority offer top quality driven hunting. These State Forest Districts all have well trained, experienced and very responsible hunting personnel, who all have a job connected to the district.
The hunt starts with a briefing around dawn, where the head gamekeeper tells about how the hunt will progress, and inform you about the safety procedures during the hunt.
Normally our driven hunting packages take place over 3-4 days and include 3 days of hunting. Typically between 12-14 guns are needed to sufficiently cover the drives. Between 8 - 10 drives are carried out every day, from early in the morning to late in the afternoon. The areas driven are selected in advance, taking into account game movements in the district.
For many hunters driven hunts are the ultimate form of rifle hunting. Moving game, adrenaline pumping in your veins, difficult shots and plenty of game on parade afterwards. A lot happens during a good driven hunt!
Many groups book their hunts together year after year, but we also arrange driven hunts which are open to bookings from smaller groups and individuals. You can choose to hunt on a fixed-price package or following the pricelist, just as you wish - we can offer an action packed experience to everyone!

The accommodation is classified as category “S”, which is the highest category.

Transport during the hunt
For most hunting districts a fixed price for transport during the hunt has been agreed. The price is per hunter, regardless if you are provided with an “individual” vehicle or not. The prices vary from Euro 40 – 60 per hunter per day.
In Poland all hunting is on 1:1 basis – so that each hunter has his own hunting guide. The Polish hunting guide is responsible for choosing the game to be shot, but it is always the guest hunter who – after having been given the permission to shoot - decides if he/she wants to shoot or not. The hunting guide always does his best to
comply with the wishes of the hunter, but it is always the person behind the rifle who takes the final decision.
Extra days hunting
If you wish to extend your stay by one or more days, this should be arranged with your interpreter or us during your stay. In some cases an extension may not be

An interpreter is obligatory for all hunting districts. Please inform us in advance whether you would prefer an English or German speaking interpreter. In some districts the interpreter = hunt manager or hunting guide.
Agreements between DIANA’s clients and staff/forester in the districts will not be accepted under any circumstances. Any hunting guest is responsible for his signed protocol - regardless of ”private” agreements - verbal or written.

We advice all hunters to oversee the weighing and measurement of trophies before signing the hunting protocol – regardless of which package you bought. If a hunter wishes to bring home the whole head of a game animal, its weight will be set in the hunting district. The cost will then be calculated from that weight. We therefore
can NOT recognise any claims arising from this. This also applies to the measurement of wild boar tusks. If a hunter wishes to bring home the whole head, the tusks
will be measured with the visible part being assumed to make up 1/3 of the total length. Trophies are normally weighed and measured 24 hours after boiling. If a hunter
leaves the district earlier than 24 hours after the trophy was boiled, it will be the wet weight that will be entered on the protocol and it will not be possible afterwards to
claim any refund on the price charged – regardless of circumstances. If you, for any reason, have cause to lodge a complaint or request a refund, this HAS TO be done in the protocol or it will not be possible for us to handle your case after you return home. Please note that when you sign the protocol you confirm that everything stated within it is 100% correct.
Settling of your final account
The settling of your final account will take place after we has received the hunting protocol from Poland, which can take 4-6 weeks, regardless if monies will be refunded
or an extra charge made. An extra invoice has to be paid within 10 days, also if you by any reason have decided to leave the trophy and/or skins etc. in the district for later pick up or posting. Please be aware that sick or previously wounded game shot by the guest hunter and entered into the protocol has to be paid according to the usual price lists.
It has been determined by law that all hunts are to be reported to the police not later than 7 days before the beginning of the hunt - stating the exact dates for the hunt
and the address of the accommodation. This means that unannounced inspections can occur. They want to check if all personal papers are okay and also if the hunters are hunting with alcohol in the blood. The blood alcohol level for driving in Poland is 0.0% and the same goes for carrying a rifle.
Choice of calibre
Polish regulations state the following ROE DEER: From 100m the bullet must have energy on impact of 1,000 joules. OTHER GAME: From 100m the bullet must have energy on impact of 2,000 joules.
Driven-/small driven hunts
Please be aware that it is only allowed to use telescopic sights of max. x3 magnification for driven and small-driven hunting. Variable sights that can be adjusted down
to x3 magnification and below are allowed. That is to say that, for example a 2.5 – 10x magnification is allowed. Sights with a fixed magnification of more than x3 are not allowed. According to the polish law each hunter HAS to wear min. 2 elements in fluorescent colours – et means yellow or orange.
It is normal to give a small tip to your hunting guide, to the translator and the kitchen. How much you give is up to your own discretion.
