Here are some of the frequently asked questions. If you cannot find the answer you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Who can successfully hunt with us in the mountains?


Almost everybody if he/she wants to. Age or fitness is not the biggest barrier - attitude is! Our oldest hunter was 80 years old. (And he was successful).

How much fitness do I need?

Fitness is an important part when hunting in the mountains. If a hunter can walk more than 2 hours in a day over untracked ground and can climb at least 200m in altitude (600 feet), than we are confident that he/she can hunt successfully for Tahr, Chamois and/or Red Deer in a free range, fair chase situation.

No doubt, if the fitness level of the hunter is higher,  the more enjoyable the hunt  will become and the chances for getting bigger and more trophies increase.
