Slovakia (Slovak Republic & Czech Republic)
Formerly Czechoslovakia, these two small republics split from each other over political differences in 1993. Both are growing democracies, prospering after 4 decades of Communistic rule after World War II. Both have a rich hunting heritage and both have thinly populated forested areas, rich in wildlife and agricultural land where species such as roe deer prosper.
The infrastructure is better in the modern, industrialized CzechRepublic. Now there are many comfortable hunting lodges and quaint hotels in the rolling hill country of Bohemia and the beautiful JesenikyMountains of Moravia. Slovakia is less developed, but the wild Tatra Mountains are home to the Tatra chamois, unique to this country.
Modest prices, rich hunting traditions, and friendly people, have made Slovakia a preferred destination for European hunters for generations. The Bohemian atmosphere and abundance of wildlife, attract thousands of visiting sportsmen each season. While Slovakia has excellent populations of roe deer, red deer, wild boar, and mouflon, it is the only country where the Tatra Chamois is found.
Slovakia is rapidly developing its own hunting industry today. It too can boast great mouflon rams, red stags and wild boar. The Tatra chamois can only be hunted here.
