(Rupicapra rupicapra L.)

In the areas where we hunt, we discern two chamois subspecies: Balkan (rupicapra rupicapra Balcanica l.) and Alpine (rupicapra rupicapra rupicapra l.) chamois. Balkan chamois is larger than Alpine. They can be found in large numbers in mountain massifs near Adriatic coast, on Velebit and on Bikovo. Hunting in these areas represents the unforgettable experience of hunting the chamois while gazing at the sea and its islands. Alpine chamois population in neighboring Slovenia is strong and stable. We usually hunt them in Julian and Kamnik Alps. Hunting chamois, this extremely valuable trophy of mountain cliffs, requires a hunter to be in very good physical condition, and to have sharp eye and firm arm. Chamois have very sharp senses; they have excellent sight, hearing and smell sense. This makes hunting them even more appealing. They are fired at from 200-300 m. We recommend using razant (higher muzzle velocity) calibers and “soft” jacketed bullets. The most successful period for hunting chamois is a mating season – “prsk”, in the first half of November.
