This is the same area where the previous world record was taken. US hunters who aren't familiar with Hungary may want to know it is one of the prime hunting countries in Europe for wild boar, red deer, roe deer and mouflon sheep, as well as fallow deer.

Average temperatures in January range from 0 and -4 degrees C (from 32 to 25 degrees F); and in July from 18 to 23 degrees C (from 64 to 73 degrees F).
