Hunting has a long and rich tradition in the lands that are now part of the Czech Republic. At least as far back as the 11th century, nobles rode out in groups to hunt deer and Wild Boar. Special hunting castles were built to accommodate the hunters, and gamekeepers were employed and trained on most landholdings. To this day, the Czech Republic holds excellent populations of alpine Chamois, Red Deer, Fallow Deer, Roe Deer, Mouflon, and Wild Boar. The country is especially known for Mouflon, which grow to impressive size here.
Introduced from Corsica by Count Forgach in 1868, Mouflon have thrived in the high hills of the Czech Republic ever since. Seven out of ten of the largest Mouflon heads in the world have been taken in this region. The countryside features large forested areas and broad, sparsely populated agricultural lands. There are numerous hunting lodges and hotels to cater to the travelling hunter. With an abundance of castles and chateaux and with many of them filled with magnificent hunting tapestries as well as stag trophies, the past is always close at hand in the Czech Republic. Hunt prices here remain relatively modest despite the high quality of the experience.
The Czech Republic still has large forested areas and sparsely populated rural farming areas, therefore wildlife is abundant. Hunting methods vary, depending on species and location, and you may use more than one method during any hunt so it may be necessary to have clothing appropriate for both walking and standing. Both spot-and-stalk and hunting from a stand are widely practised. Driven hunts are common for species such as wild boar; if you will be taking part in a driven hunt, fast-handling rifles with low-power scopes are generally recommended. As with most European hunts, dark green or tan clothing is usually worn, and always be prepared for chilly temperatures because you will likely be at higher elevations.
