Some time ago we promised to tell you the story of the hunting paradise of Bulgaria. Its name is “Bukovetz” hunting preserve. It is situated in the middle of the Balkan mountain and the country, on an area of 29 000 hectares.

Needless to say, you can judge by yourself from the pictures, that in Bukovetz you can relish the delicious cuisine, enjoy the convenience and the comfort of the hunting lodge, to feel the trill of the real hunt and to get wonderful trophies.

The tranquillity and the virgin nature keep the natural habitats of the Red Deer, Fallow Deer, Wild Boar, Roe Deer and the Moufflon. The wealth of the wild fauna is presented from the partridge, pheasant, hare and all hunting kinds of migratory birds too.

It is possible to combine the hunt for big and small game within one day.

The vast meadows and the century-old forests, the great number of cornfields and the professional hunters offer successful hunt from a high stand and by stalking, so as a driven hunt too. The constructed convenient well heat- and noise- insulated raised hides and hunting high stands enable the absolute privacy in the wild nature.

The preserve disposes of two hunting lodges in the typical architectural Bulgarian National Revival style. For your evening summer comfort you can take a swim, Jacuzzi, have a dinner or simply enjoy the silence and the babble of the mountain stream in the open air. 




Il bulgaro Yavor Gancev dalla scuola Proto- bulgara “Baga – Tour” ha vinto la medaglia d’oro alla gara di tiro con l’arco tenutasi in Ungheria. Un’ altra partecipante bulgara Nina Yankova ha preso il bronzo ed è sempre della stessa scuola.  

Nella gara tradizionale ungherese partecipano 15 nazioni e più di 90 partecipanti.

Yavor Gancev considera che il suo segreto per il successo sta nell’arma con la quale ha partecipato. Il suo arco è di origine bulgara, ricavato da Marian Maniovski utilizzando tecnologie tradizionali senza materiali moderni ed è elaborato da corno e tendine. L’arco tiene più di 80 libbre anche a 38 gradi che è uno standard di battaglia.  

Yavor Gancev ha realizzato sette colpi favorevoli dei sette tiri a segno consecutivi per un tempo di record.
