Thread: Hunting in Italy

  1. #1

    Hunting in Italy

    Hi,

    I am being dragged to my Mrs, best friends wedding next July, so July 2014. We are staying in Sirmione, which is in the Lake Garda area of Italy.

    Does anyone know of or ideally can personally recommend places and outfitters where I may be able to hunt?

    Not that bothered which species, as I am not sure what exists in that area either. Would love the chance of a chamois, if that is possible?

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers

    Thanks for your reply Rick.

    It is the beginning of July so maybe it will be OK.

    I am finding it hard to find any private estates that offer hunting in this area.

    Anyone else got more info.

    Cheers

    Not sure how I missed this. I'll ask around for you, but the boar aren't in until late September, and not sure whether you would want to hunt pigeons blackbirds and thrushes. If you want to visit later in the year I could help out, on boar.
    Regards,
    ​Mark.

    I live about 200 miles from the Garda lake and we have different regulations. Anyway, I am sure that in July chamois is closed in all italian Alpine counties, to be open in August (my place) or September (most of the counties). It is possible that roebuck is open but you have plenty of them in UK. Anyway, not far from Sirmione there is a mountain on the W side of the lake, named Monte Baldo. There are chamois over there, so take along binocs, scope and boots. In the meantime I will try to get more accurate info for you. However, I am afraid that, due to the difference between British and Italian hunting regulations, you cannot legally hunt here. Actually European Union citizen are allowed to hunt, provided they possess a valid hunting licence issued in their country. Do you possess this licence?

    Hi 270 Buck,

    I found out that a certain Lorenzo Tommasi, living in Verona is one of the stalkers in the Monte Baldo area. You can get in touch with mim through Facebook, where he posted his photo in stalking attire. Good luck.
