|Summary: State hunting grounds managed in part by "Croatian Forests" and state hunting grounds managed on the basis of concessions or leasing are currently being established in the Republic of Croatia. Joint hunting grounds have been established in the areas where no interest was shown for founding privately owned hunting grounds or where less than one thousand hectares of continuous land were privately owned.The new regulation of hunting relations has provided a strong impetus for the advancement of hunting management.|
The total hunting management and the game parent fund was significantly decreased during the Home War. "Croatian Forests" has undertaken to manage a part of good quality state hunting grounds and has committed itself to developing and re-establishing overall hunting management. Hunting ground owners are particularly interested in the transfer of management technologies, possibilities of improving game parent funds in hunting grounds and other issues.
"Croatian Forests" have recognised their commitment in relation to the owner - the Republican Government. The Podravlje - Podunavlje hunting ground has been organised with the main management goal consisting of raising highly-valuable Baranja deer and providing the possibility of transferring the breeding stock into other hunting grounds in the Republic. The game breeding site of Mačkovac is intended for raising high-trophy wild boar and the possibility of breeding stock transfer into other hunting grounds. The autochthonous deer of Baranja has an important genetic potential. In the past two years "Croatian Forests" has supplied three hunting grounds in Croatia with a total of 34 heads of live deer game from the hunting ground "Podravlje - Podunavlje".
The need to establish a special project "Controlled breeding and protection of red deer (Cervus elaphus)" has been realised in the site of Šeprešhat sized 58 hectares within the hunting ground Podravlje - Podunavlje. This will increase the number and quality of the population and improve the genetic structure of the existing heads in the grounds. The game breeding site Ma?kovac is a fenced area of 887 ha within the open state hunting ground Breznica. A line of high-trophy value of boars has been defined by selection and specially controlled breeding, combined with abundant and vital progeny by fertile females. In 1993, such genetically highly valuable breeding stock was delivered to 18 locations in the hunting grounds throughout Croatia. This resulted in an increased quality of game offer for wild boar in the Republic.
Work on the defined genetic lines of autochthonous game in particular will also be used in the field of game farming, which is very interesting from the marketing point of view. A systematic incentive to the production of breeding stock for red deer and wild boar as ecologically valuable game meat production should be expected, modelled on the Incentives Act in Agriculture and Forestry for Livestock Breeding.
It can be concluded that the State should debit and support forestry in the management of some of its hunting grounds so that it may ensure the transfer of genetically valuable breeding stock intended for populating hunting grounds and improving hunting management in their own and in other owners´ hunting grounds.
