Roe Deer | Capreolus Capreolus L.
Roe deer is the most gracious among antler animals in Bulgaria. Very widespread game in Bulgaria and one of the favorite hunting animals for many Bulgarians because the hunting season starts at 1st of May when the mountains offer breathtaking views. Often we combine roe deer hunting in Bulgaria with capercaillie which is hunted from 15th of April till May 15th when is the capercaillie mating season.
The roe deers in the mountains have longer antlers but less massive, while the ones harvested in the northeastern plain part of Bulgaria are shorter in length but quite massive. Recommended calibers are .223rem, .243win.
