It is only a few of the dozens of nice stags taken in the '013 red stag season so far. Gyulaj Hunting Hungary's South-Western Hungarian hunting grounds are more than good for red stag stalking. Let the pictures speak for themselves!

some early stags form the 2013 season

Posted on: August 7, 2013
 
In the spring of 2010, really impressive and great looking shed antlers were found in the woods of Gyulaj Hunting Hungary’s Hőgyész hunting area, South-West Hungary. Even at first sight it was c...lear as day from its heavy weight and the high numbers of points and tines that this antler shows a big potential. It was an interesting fact that the The Hőgyész Miracoulus stag in 2013 stag estimated to be between 6-7 years old at the time, was unknown to professional hunters. It had never been seen before, neither in the September rutting, nor in winter time. During the following rutting season the stag was finally seen in the main rutting place. He was easily recognizable by his special antlers. As it is a kind of local tradition, the professional staff named the miraculous stag. That is how he became „Eugen”. At that time he was still a really young stag, so all professional staff members and experts agreed that Eugen must see many more seasons before he is old enough to be bagged by a lucky hunter. We, at Gyulaj Hunting Hungary wanted to have a deserved CIC world ranklist „Top10 stag” finally as we had many wonderful and impressive trophy stags from Hőgyész, but none of them could achieved top 10 ranking so far. In the end of the winter of 2011 we were all excited about the found shed antlers. And we were not disappointed at all. Eugen’s antlers became much bigger just as we expected. The antlers were found just right in the heart of the Hőgyész area, where he was seen a couple of times, showing he felt safe and good there. The local trophy measurement using CIC- system provided us the following results:

Length of the beams: 104 and 106 cm
Circumference of the burrs: 25,5 and 26,0 cm
Number of points: 10 + 10
Calculated 24hrs trophy weight: 12,80 kg
The estimated CIC point was: 232,78 IP

Of course we were really looking forward what the next September would brings. A bit later than the previous year but he showed up at exactly the same place. He was even more powerful so our expectations and hopes grew even bigger. We hadn't seen a stag with such a huge trophy before on our hunting grounds. In that year Eugen shunned the fights and rut in the background. But the beautiful game was still too young to be bagged, even if many foreign and Hungarian hunters wanted to get him. For that winter he moved back his previous winter place. Those year’s shed antlers were found in the same area as before.
His trophy features were:

Lenght of the beams: 112,5 and 109 cm
Circumference of the burrs: 27,5 and 29,0 cm
Calculated 24hrs trophy weight: 14,10 kg
The estimated CIC point was: 248,83 IP

The following September we awaited Eugen to get back to his private rutting place but he didn’t come. And just as things go in this kind of situations rumors began to spread: „someone has seen him here and others have seen him there”, we even heard rumors that he was shot by different local hunters, but reliable news didn’t arrive. Until February. After a driven hunt close to Eugen’s rutting place our pro. hunters were checking blood of a wounded game and the dogs found a stag’s remains. The stag’s trophy was absolutely different looking but there was no doubt about the fact that they found Eugen’s remains. He had an accident in the velvet period when the stags grow their antlers. His head got smashed so badly, he lost almost the entire left beam, so after the accident he could grow only the remaining small piece of beam and the unharmed left brow tine. During the unknown accident his right beam was also damaged. In spite of all these things his trophy weighed 9,7kg with whole skull. Even with self- contained estimating, Eugen’s trophy weight should have achieved 15 kg without the accident. With his broken antlers probably he couldn’t fight and defend himself against other stags in the rut, so one of them could stab him to death. With his remaining power he could only go until the nearest wallowing place to cool down his wounds and that place became his final resting place.
Many people are asking us, if we are sorry Eugen’s story ended so sad? Yes, we are really sorry. Especially that we know Eugen could haves been our first CIC Top10 stag. Also we are being asked, if we are sorry we didn’t let one of our clients take a final shot, taking Eugen before the right time? Maybe it sounds crazy, but we say ’no’ without hesitation. We believe we have to show good example in wildlife management, so we don’t want our wildlife management to be driven by short therm, money-maker decisions instead of real professionalism. In the pictures Eugen’s last shed antlers can be seen built onto an other dead stag’s skull done by a professional taxidermist as a masterpiece. This beautiful set up trophy is now decorating one of our hunting lodges on Hőgyész Hunting Area, representing the excellence of the local habitat and professionalism for the following generations

Even if there is a good hunting ground with excellent fallow population, a client with a desire to bag a big trophy buck and the expertise to take the shot when needed, and a well experienced pro guide, a considerable measure of luck is still needed for taking an old buck with a world-class trophy. On 20th October, 2012 all these things above came together on Gyulaj Hunting Hungary’s Pincehely area. The result was a stunning old fallow buck with 5.40kg trophy weight, an exultant hunter and a really proud hunting staff who are also grateful that they were the ones taking care of the great population of the local fallow deer. In the European CIC measuring system the trophy received 209,78 IP (International Points). 

The great looking trophy was also measured using the SCI (Safari Club International) method. After the measurement even the measurers were surprised by the exceptional score. The buck scored 317 1/8 SCI which is far more than a trophy needs to receive a gold medal award. Besides the medal award this magnificent score could provide the eminent No.3 place on the current SCI European fallow buck’s rifle ranklist representing the estate’s and the population’s excellence. Beside this great trophy the same area provided another old buck with 5.11kg trophy weight this year. In the October rut season the average trophy weight of 30 bucks was 3.79kg signifying a strong population. This forecast that next season we can expect great results as well.

The lord of Hatar-valley

Each year one of the most remarkable event on Gyulaj Hunting Hungary’s famous Gyulaj hunting ground is the October fallow buck rut. This splendorous time attracts many international hunters from all over the world.            Roberto Civati, an Italian hunter - a returning guest of Gyulaj Plc - arrived on October 10th this year. Mr. Civati has already bagged some CIC gold medal fallow bucks with us, but this time he really desired to shoot a fallow buck with a huge trophy. On the very first stalk we were lucky to bag this great beast as this old buck had kept his well-known rutting place. In the woods he was easily recognizable by the outstanding trophy dimensions. This great buck’s trophy weight was 5,07 kg and received 207,29 CIC (International Council for Game and Wildlife Management) and 277 1/8 points (Safari Club International) on the trophy measurement. In both CIC and measuring system the magnificent trophy achieved gold medals.

Right after this hunt, on next day’s evening Mr. Civati succeeded in bagging another, absolutely unique, abnormally-shaped trophy fallow buck with 2,61 kg trophy weight. By the end of his hunting trip our esteemed Italian guest was more than satisfied with this two wonderful trophies and said good bye with a certainty in his eyes that meant he will be coming back next year and will be part of the Gyulaj experience again.

Gyulaj Hunting Hungary's exclusive Danish partner published an article about the new SCI No.1 (world 's record) eurasian wild boar trophy taken on Gyulaj Plc's hunting ground in one of the leading Danish hunting magazine, the BigGame. The Weatherby- award winner US client who won the auction of the "Hungarian Big Five" package during the SCI Las Vegas Convention in 2010 arrived to our South- West Hungarian hunting grounds in October, 2011. The first day early morning and evening hunt was unsuccesful but next day brought the right wild boar for the great shooter client. Both the hunter and the professional guide was impressed when they measured the tusks of the ~7 years old big game. After the raw preparation the first measuring brought even bigger surprise for both the hunter and the staff of the Gyulaj Plc. The official masurement (done by a SCI master measurer) set out the fact that by the measured SCI points this particular trophy is the new world's record of the SCI Eurasian world rank list with an impressive 31 9/16 SCI. In CIC measuring system the trophy is an abnormal trophy winning silver medal with 22,7cm and 43,9cm lower, big tusks. 
We hope by reading this article too, more and more hunters from Denmark will experience the excellence of Gyulaj's South-West Hungarian hunting grounds and big game populations!
