In the past years, Fagaras Mountains have become foreigners’ favorite hunting destination, particularly for the chamois species. Most hunters are coming from Finland, Denmark, Norway, but also from Germany and Austria. This year, game licences have been released for 16 chamois and the Hunters Association from Fagaras has requests also for the next year.

Foreign hunters have to pay EUR 1,300 for the shoot, Romanians within the Association have to pay RON 1,500 and those who come outside the association- RON 5,000. These are not the only taxes, as other money must be paid according to the animal’s size and weight.

On the average, a good hunter needs 3-4 days to hunt a chamois.

The hunt season kicks off on September 1 and lasts until December 15.

The chamois is a large sized mountain goat, native to the European mountains. Today, the range of the chamois includes Romania, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and parts of Turkey. The chamois has also been introduced to the mountainous regions of New Zealand’s South Island.

European laws prohibit the hunting of the chamois in order to preserve native mountainous animal species.
