Lábod

   There is the biggest contiguous hunting area in Hungary called Lábod, with its 48,200 hectare. The Southern-Somogy area, which is sweeping toward the river Dráva, has a world famous red deer and a uniquely big fallow deer stock. This plain area, slashed densely with streams, fishing ponds, agricultural lands and forests worthily called legendary. The quality and quantity of the game stock living here is unique and in 1994 it was rewarded with Edmon Blanc-Prize by the International for the Game and Wildlife Conversation (C.I.C.).

 

                                                                   

 

The red deer, representing outstanding genetic values from hunting aspects, has been a determinative factor and world famous emblem of this area for many decades. The annual bag including 120-150 stags is of high quality. In 2001 a stag, having 16.83 kg trophy, being 9th in the world ranking list and being judged with 265.67 C.I.C. point, was bagged here. One of the biggest fallow deer stocks in Hungary lives here in Lábod area. The bag has around 100-150 stags every year. In addition of stand and stalking hunt, we provide wide scale of opportunities from horse-drawn carriage to driven hunts. Upon request beating is organised in the wild boar enclosure near to village Lábod. Regarding the size of stock, 2000 hectare cropland for game is managed here.
