HUNTING OF RED DEER AND FALLOW DEER IN ROMANIA PUBLISHEDAdrian Ilie, Cristian Mihai Enescu None email@example.com
In Romania, the hunting is permitted for 18 mammal species (Law no. 407/2006), fallow deer (Dama dama L.) and red deer (Cervus elaphus L.) being among the most common species of hunting interest. The aim of this study was to analyze the data provided by the central public authority responsible for hunting activity for the hunting seasons starting from 2014-2015 until present regarding the approved annual quotas for fallow deer and red deer. In the case of the red deer, Harghita, Mureș and Suceava were among the counties with the highest approved quotas and with the highest numbers of realized quotas by the foreign hunters. The highest approved quotas for fallow deer were recorded in Arad and Timiș counties, respectively. We believe that these results would be useful for those of the managers of the hunting associations who would like to develop additional programs and services targeting the foreign hunters.
