After each main hunting season must be a day when the professional staff members can see what they worked for and see the nicest and best trophies bagged on the days behind. The annual fallow buck trophy exhibition of 2014 was held at Gyulaj Hunting Hungary's Óbiród Hunting Lodges on November 5. This year fallow buck rut was truly amazing, the statistics of the trophies speak for themselves. On the exhibition 65 bucks were displayed from the total 90 bucks were shot this year so far. 66% of the bucks received CIC medal. 30% received CIC gold medalion, 18% received CIC silver and 18% received CIC bronze medalion. So far the heaviest fallow buck trophy was 5,26kg and the most score was 215,85 IP received by another buck (with 5,01kg trophy weight). Four bucks had more than 5kg and 25 bucks were more than 4kg trophy weight. Thank you for all our clients and outfitter partners for this beautiful rut season.

A 5 pages article was published in the SCI's (Safari Club International) Safari Magazine about the five main state owned Hungarian hunting estates. The author was Dr. Gerald Warnock, a Weatherby Award winner hunter, telling a detailed story of his personal Hungarian experiences. He was the lucky one winning the auction at SCI's annual convention in 2010, Reno, NV. He bagged all the "Hungarian Big Five" in five different areas of Hungary; some nice roe bucks, a red stag, a fallow buck, a moufflon ram and a SCI world record wild boar tusker on Gyulaj Hunting Hungary Hőgyész hunting ground.
This issue of the magazine was published in more than 50.000 copies and sent out worldwide from SCI's Arizona and Washington DC headquarters.
Worth to read to know more about the Hungarian hunting tradition, famous hospitality, the quality of our hunting lodges and the high numbers of beautiful trophy big games we have.

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!
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

New short hunting footage from Gyulaj Hunting Hungary's YouTube channel. Now we show how the fallow buck shooting goes from a high seat. After Gyulaj's professional guide measuring the buck's age and trophy he gives the permission to take the shot. The hunting client takes the shot to the right place. The result is a beautiful trophy awarded with CIC's medal. The white buck of the footage is also more than interesting.
In November 2012, the Hungarian Embassy of Paris provided place for a great hunting event organized by the Hungarian Tourism Plc.'s Paris Office and Gyulaj Forestry and Hunting Plc. During the so called "Hungarian Hunting Day in Paris" both Barbara Packi, Director of Hungarian Tourism Plc's French Office and Péter Gőbölös, CEO of Gyulaj Plc. presented a slideshow about the genaral tourism of Hungary as well as the performance of the Hungarian state owned forestries' hunting branch and sector to highlight the great results and hunting performance of the state owned hunting grounds in Hungary.

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).

"...on one of the bests hunting estates of Europe at one of the most exciting times of year..."
Now released: special Gyulaj and fallow rut edition in the British but internationally viewed online outdoor channel, the Fieldsports Britain's episode 153! Great footages with the deep roars of hundreds of our fallow bucks. David Wright producer of Fieldsports Channel did excellent job filming Max Hunt Danish pro bowhunter on the spot during the legendary Gyulaj fallow rut. Some words from the series:
"...watching their (fallow bucks') wonderful behaviour in this glorious Hungarian classroom.."
"...this was the most exciting, raw, challenging hunting adventure we have ever filmed for Fieldsports Channel.."
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.
