Roebuck (Capreolus capreolus L.)
The roe deer is a much more common species, ranging from mountain forests to the Delta and the Danube meadow, with increased density in the hills, hillsides and plains. The vigorousness of the specimens and the size of the trophies acquired exclusively in the free field, from wild specimens supplemented with complementary food only during the critical winter period, denotes, as in the case of the deer, a gene pool of exceptional value.
The national record of 211.67 points C.I.C., approved in Marseilles in 1977, comes from the southern part of the country, from an area of arid plains, interrupted somewhere by ravenous ravines. Powerful trophies, over 150 C.I.C., are also obtained frequently from the area of medium-sized hillsides and hills, located in the south, west and central parts of the country, as well as in the Danube meadow and the islands between its branches.
Hunting: The male rake hunting season is open from 1 May to 15 October and in females between 1 September and 15 February.
