This 14 days bow hunting trip in Bulgaria Includes full accommodation for one hunter and one observer for One Red deer gold medal (up to 10kg); One Fallow deer gold medal (up to 4kg); One Roe deer (up to 400g); One Alpine ibex (no limit); One Wild boar (up to 18 cm) ; One Mouflon (up to 80 cm) ; One Balkan chamois (up to 100p CIC) ; 1 Wolf (mature). This hunting trip offering an exclusive and personalized adventure for free-range gold trophy hunts. It captures the essence of legendary bow hunting in the rugged high mountain terrains, especially when targeting the most majestic Alpine ibex of Europe. This experience is highlighted by the extraordinary scenes during the rut season, where hunters witness the intense battles of red stags clashing amidst the verdant forest, and the dramatic encounters of fallow deer engaging in fierce skirmishes on rocky terrains. Adding to the allure, the trip features nocturnal vigils for massive wild boars and challenging hikes across high terrains in pursuit of the elusive Balkan chamois and Alpine ibex. These moments not only provide thrilling hunting experiences but also offer a closer connection to the wild, unspoiled nature of Bulgaria. Spearheaded by the top three bow hunters recognized by the Safari Club International (SCI) - Archie Nesbitt, Gary Bogner, and Tom Miranda - this journey stands as a testament to the gold medal achievements of big game trophies Bulgaria has to offer.
