Hunting Season: October 1st – January 31st
Although a small animal, the chamois is one of the most important beasts to chase in Europe. Its agility and natural intelligence, and the high and difficult mountains in which it lives render it one of the finest quarries of the true hunter. Chamois can be found in most of the high ranges in Central and Southern Europe, their range extending from the Pyrenees to the Caucasus and from the Southern Carpathians to Albania.
The colour of the Chamois in summer is a greyish dun, with black markings on their face, but in winter their hair grows long and becomes almost black. However many varieties occur, including Albino and Menalistic however these are now rare. Chamois are gregarious and found in small herds.
