Verebes was surprised at how much game he found. Before the hunt he wondered whether he would get the four roe buck trophies he was allotted in the hunt price. Olah had assured him there was plenty of game, and Verebes says there was no problem taking his limit. The hunting took place mornings and late afternoons on open farm fields where the deer come to feed, so finding the trophies was easy.
Verebes says the best stalk of the hunt was "about 20 minutes along a riverbank, keeping low. My guide, Attila, made excellent use of the wind and sun to get me within 100 yards of a roe buck that was bedded down in a field. This one turned out to be the best trophy at 424 grams." In general, Verebes says the shots are not too long, 100-plus yards, but the hunter should be prepared to shoot more than 200 yards. Verebes used Olah's .30-06 during the hunt.
Verebes' wife accompanied him on the trip. Olah arranged sightseeing and horseback riding for her when she did not accompany them on the hunt. "Olah also had suggestions and recommendations for sightseeing after the hunt," Verebes says. Accommodations were near the hunt area in a hotel that Verebes rates as very good. All meals, typical Hungarian fare, were off the menu but included in the price of the hunt. European mounts are also included in the $3,900 price for a three-day hunt with four nights' lodging.
Verebes says he will probably go back next year to hunt wild boar. Contact Hungarian Hunting at 800-631-0347; or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Hungarianhunting@gmail.com.
