CZ Hunting can arrange such inexpensive expeditions because Rudolf Bukac, the father side of the team, lived in the Czech Republic for 30 years, where he was a taxidermy curator at the Museum of Prague and was fully involved in the hunting community. He made many contacts and established relationships with hunting clubs and key individuals throughout the country. Bukac moved to the United States in 1987, where he opened a taxidermist shop and started hunting throughout the US. Based on interest expressed by their clients, Bukac and his son, Jan, began to experiment, arranging hunting trips through their contacts in the Czech Republic and accompanying clients on the trips.
Depending on what a client wants, CZ Hunting can plan anything from a gold-medal trophy hunt to an economical one for representative animals. A gold medal roe deer on the previously mentioned package, for instance, brings the price up another $1,985 in the Czech Republic and $2,440 in Slovenia. The species they can arrange hunts for include red stag, fallow deer, roe deer, wild boar, mouflon sheep and chamois. Although the general hunting season in Eastern Europe begins in early August for most of these species, they have spring expeditions that begin in May. Roe deer may be harvested from May 16 to September 30. And although Prussian boar hunts don't begin until August, piglets and yearlings may be taken all year long.
Trips usually run one to two weeks........(continued)
