Trophy hunting tourism

By listening and observing wildlife in its natural environment we offer genuine contact with nature. In the subalpine region and the Alps this is a special experience, as in the middle of pristine nature you can enjoy listening to a variety of birds singing, the murmur of a mountain stream and tempting fragrances of mountain flowers.

The specialty of hunting in the LPN Kozorog Kamnik is the hunting of chamois in the idyllic Alpine environment. We can organize it irrespective of the physical condition of the hunting guest, as the latter can hunt chamois both in the medium mountain region and the high mountain range, of course, only within the period of chamois hunting, which extends from the beginning of August to the end of December.

The most common types of hunting are stalking and stand hunting from a high seat.

The hunting ground is divided into 13 districts where the work is carried out by professional district hunters.

Hunting guests, who come to visit us, need to be equipped for hunting in the medium mountain region and the high mountain range. Therefore, you will need robust footwear, appropriate clothing, a stick, proper physical fitness, a rifle which according to your needs can be calibrated before the hunt begins, and a backpack, as well as a steady hand and a good eyesight.

A trophy belongs to every hunting guest who shoots game. Depending on the customer’s wishes the district hunter prepares it for transportation. Prior to this the trophy is assessed under current CIC forms for evaluating trophies. If the hunting guest desires a taxidermy specimen of the hunted animal we provide him/her with an adequate conservator.

In the event that the customer is not from the EU, we will provide him/her in the shortest possible time with the necessary export documents. Upon completion of the statutory veterinary procedures it is also possible to purchase the meat of the hunted game.
