4 days from €870
Deep grunts rip through the silence of the richly coloured autumnal forest. The big, mature fallow buck are fighting a fierce battle to win the favours of the hinds. The excitement in the air feels electric …
The fallow buck hunts usually take place during the rutting season, which normally occurs from mid-October to the start of November. Hunting during the rutting season for the grunting bucks is just as intense and exciting as a red stag hunt, and carried out in the same way, a blend of stalking and lying in wait.
Even though the fallow bucks are quite a bit smaller than red stag, you will not notice the difference! The deep growls and the dramatic fights between the territorial fallow bucks characterise the vivid scenes of the rut.
In Poland fallow buck hunts take place exclusively in the open countryside - hunting in fenced enclosures is prohibited by Polish hunting legislation. Because of strict, long term game management policies, fallow deer are becoming more and more widespread, and in many places the populations are dense. This helps to make the experience of stalking them on their rutting grounds a really intense experience!
We can offer a wide range of the very best State Forest Districts in western Poland, all of which can deliver top quality fallow buck hunts. These State Forest Districts all have well trained, experienced and very responsible hunting guides, who each have their own areas in the districts, which they know like the back of their own hands.
The hunt usually takes the form of stalking or lying in wait on one of the towers that have been optimally placed in each district, with regard to the deer’s behavioural patterns during the rut. You will go out hunting twice a day, once in the early morning starting before dawn, and again in the late afternoon/evening during the hours around sunset.
It will always be possible to combine your hunt for fallow buck with hunting for hinds and wild boar, once you have shot your buck.
We can offer both fixed price and price-list hunts

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
Interruption of hunting

Please be aware that not all hunting districts will accept clients bringing their own dogs. To enter Poland a dog must have a valid dog passport and be able to be identified with a readable ear tattoo or microchip.
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.
