The reign of the hunting with dogs

A very popular destination, where hunting with a pointing dog finds its ideal habitat: quails, turtle doves and pigeons in the summer months, grey partridges and rock partridges in the autumn months.

Territories that range from the immense and majestic Macedonian mountains, the reign of the rock partridge that lives between rocks and mountain pastures, to the hills and gentle plateaus with numerous grey partridges’ estates.

Beginning from the month of August, you can meet the queens of these plains: the grey partridges. Conspicuous brigades populate this land and in the month of October they can be hunted with a pointing dog, a true Macedonian attraction together with the rock partridge (alectoris graeca) that push the most passionate to cross the border to pursue these birds.

A wild and authentic environment where animals are still very wild and cunning.

Traveling by car with your dogs to reach the areas is part of the experience but if you prefer to travel by plane, no problem. You will be able to stay not far from the hunting areas and have the chance to know the life of a suggestive country and a rich and genuine territory. 

Despite being a small country, this destination offers many hunting opportunities, giving all hunters (dog lovers, stalking or big game lovers) the chance to live a unique experience.

Seeing the work of your dog is a great experience and will make your hunting day unforgettable.

The various crops in place (wheat, barley, sunflowers, tobacco together with vineyards and small vegetable gardens) are the perfect refuge for indigenous and migratory fauna

From the first days of April the quails can be heard singing in the fields: in the spring they move to these lands for nesting and with them also turtle doves, which in May arrive for the long summer stop.

If you look around during the hunting, you can admire the size and hardness of the mountains of this country.

The hotels are all located at a distance ranging from 15 to 25 km from the hunting grounds. The area is around Bitola that rises at an altitude of 600 meters, a clean city with many amenities. In the evening, after the hunt, you can take a tour of the city center which is no more than 6 km from the hotels.

What People Are Saying

Another fantastic hunting experience organized by Montefeltro’s friends has just ended.

This time in Macedonia was a success!

Thanks Montefeltro!

Asher W.

The hunting experience was very, very good.

Your itineraries were complete and a big help for pre-trip planning.

Your ability to make changes to that itinerary once we see the weather was very much appreciated.

I think we were well prepared before leaving the states.

Your attention to the client is very detailed and obviously made for a very smooth, exciting trip.

I would have no trouble recommending Montefeltro to other hunters.

Jackson T.

We enjoyed the hunting and the surrounding area was beautiful.

The hunting experience was the best hunting I’ve ever had.

I would make a return trip for that.

We were well taken care of by our guides, who were very friendly.

I feel our trip was very balanced for what we wanted to do.

Hunting half days was excellent and gave us plenty of time to visit the surrounding area.

Communication was excellent and we were able to find each location and guide without difficulty.

Montefeltro was first class in setting up this trip especially under the last minute request that we had.

Again grateful for your hard work.

I would be happy to recommend you to friends looking for hunting opportunities
