The Chepino hunting area is a wild and mountainous location offering a true wilderness hunting experience amongst mixed evergreen and deciduous forests populated by Brown Bear, Wolves and a variety of other Trophy Species including Red Stags, Roe and Chamois. 

The accommodation in traditional wooden chalets is warm and comfortable as too are some of the enclosed High Seats and blinds which also boast beds and heating to provide hunters with an opportunity to wait uninterrupted for their target species. 

The location is densely forested and while perhaps a third of it is worked for lumber, the sheer scale of this 33,000ha location (circa 82,000 acres) is such that this will not interrupt your hunting experience. 

Another of the key differences in this area is the stewardship of Dr Rosen Andreev, Assistant Director of Hunting, whose enthusiasm for our Sport is unprecedented. He has previously worked within other State-managed Forestry regions having completed his Doctorate wit a dissertation on Chamois, so in terms of knowledge and experience you and your party will be in god hands since Rosen is also a celebrated and published Hunter both locally and internationally. 

Those looking for a different dimension should also know that this is one of Bulgaria’s premier locations for Capercaillie Hunting as this remote mountainous forest boasts a significant nurtured and protected population of these elusive game birds. Capercaillie hunting has proved to be one of Roo Ellis’ most challenging yet rewarding hunts ever and it would be a mistake not to try for one during your visit to Bulgaria. 

In addition, this region has a healthy population of Brown Bear and Wolves and while only 17 Bear permits are issued each year in Bulgaria, Chepino is always guaranteed at least one of them, but their scarcity is such that those looking to take a fabulous Brown Near trophy are well advised to book early! 

If you are looking for a wild, untamed hunting experience and have the fitness and personal tenacity to realise your expectations, Chepino is highly recommended!
