As mentioned before, roe deer can only be found in certain areas of Turkey, the main hunting districts are in the region around the Black Sea and the Marmara region. Generally these are very hill, forest clad districts, with a mix of oak- and conifer forests, clearings, meadows and very thick scrub. This is a really good habitat for both roe deer and wild boar. The districts vary in size, but generally are many thousands of hectares in size.
As in other parts of Europe hunting takes place as early morning and evening stalking sessions. Hunting can consist of stalking or lying in wait and guiding here is always 1:1. Even though you can hunt roebuck in Turkey from 1st May to 31st October, we recommend you visit either in May or during the rutting season, which takes place in the last half of July and the first half of August. In May daytime temperatures are around 20-25 ℃ while in the summer they are normally 30-35 ℃.
Please do not expect too much of your guides when it comes to their language skills, if they do not speak either a little English or German, there will be an interpreter where you are staying, and when out hunting you will rarely encounter any communication problems.
