The Pearl of the Carpathian Mountains , is the most vigorous one and holds the strongest trophies in the world. The most representative animals are in the Southern Carpathians. The Chamois' areal is in the Carpathians alpine zone, and it is frequently found at altitudes of over 1800 - 2000 meters.

Type of hunting is by stalking . The hunt by stalking requires lots of attention, considering the fact that this animal has a keen hearing and eyesight. An exceptional physical condition is necessary for the hunter, as getting near the animals and hunting them take place in alpine zones with a high sliding risk. A proper equipment is also required, we recommend footwear with a proper sole. The stalking hunt may be carried out throughout the day.

The optimum hunting period is October - November .

Recommended calibre is 6.5, 7 and even 8 mm , with high speed bullets, considering that usual shooting takes place from distances of over 200 m and requires a good training for shooting in alpine zones that present significant differences in level between the hunter's place and the target animal.
