License Required:

Major Game Animals Taken: Wolf - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size: More than satisfying
Boar, Wild (Wild Hog Feral Hog) - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size: Very Good
Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: Stating that wolf is abundant in my ears sounds odd. But their presence supercedes any other area that I've hunted in Europe, although presently Bosnia and Macedonia also has a good rumor, but I haven't been there. Lots of tracks, lots of dead (taken) animals and lots of pooh. As for trophy quality wild boar only the best areas of Bulgaria and Turkey matches - having in mind that this is truly free range mountain hunting. No tricks played.

Highlights of Hunt: Talking my wolf. It's my 5th dedicated wolf hunt, and a desire of a lifetime. Words can't describe...
Equipment Recommendations: First class European optics for dedicated night hunting (Zeiss or Swarovski, sorry chaps - but you haven't beaten us there)
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? Kiss Attila and his Transylvanian Hunting is without comparison in their dedication, camp, equipment and quality of staff. They may be vastly more expensive as regards daily rate, but no where else in Europa have I ever had such an effort. Last winter I hunted for my wolf without succeeding. But actually I saw a wolf at 80 meters in a night vision scope. But in my US Riflescope (won't mention brand, but it's generally considered to be quality) it was just black. Two hunts, two chances for wolf. You try to find that anywhere else. And if you ask Attila for his succes rate, he won't promise you anything.

If Seeking Restitution, What is Sought?

This was close to my hunting experience of a lifetime, as I got a wolf - which for me is truly a dream come true. Although my wolf hunt was in the same place last winter; that because of myself went unsuccessful, was a far more intense hunt waiting at a mountain top sitting on the ground in a just self-made shelter consisting of some chopped of branches, with wolves howling and intensely fighting within 300 meters. This year was just plenty of waiting. But he came. And it was my 5th dedicated wolf hunt with two times in Romania with Attila, and three times in Bulgaria with Konstantin Kotsev of, who is also trustworthy, I was delighted.
My very close friend Mads, who joined me for the hunt was also seeking first wild boar but also wolf left empty handed. A German hunter in camp at the same time for that combo as well got a giant (CIC gold medal) wild boar, although sitting in tough minus degrees in front of a wolf-slain reed deer waiting for that wolf, but it once again outsmarted the human. I should of course be better to share these experiences, but with time constraints and so forth I don't always get it done. It was first when noticing your request for reports from Romania. I do have some experience with Romania and Bulgaria, so do feel free to mail or call for at least knowledge of my experience. I've heard of the Hungarian & Bulgarian stories to, but I will take too long too develop on here. Rgds. Jens
