Hunting in Serbia

Serbia has one of the best-known hunting grounds in Europe. The nature and weather conditions allow the breeding of almost all kinds of animals. Among Serbian woods, and other hunting grounds from the flat Vojvodina to the untouched mountain regions, you can find champion specimens – the world-class trophies.

There are over 320 hunting grounds spread all over Serbia in a total area of 6,500,000 hectares. Around 90% of those grounds are protected and managed by hunting associations (24 enclosed hunting areas with 150 hunting lodges).

Serbia has well-established hunting tourism, where people from all around Europe and the world come. There is a strict rule of conduct from the very first moment of crossing a border to traveling to the hunting ground. Licenses for weapons are obligatory, and there is a strict set of rules regarding exporting games, that includes veterinary licenses. The hunter must possess documentation for hunting weapons, ammunition, optical sights, and hunting dogs. Only specimens listed can be shot.
