CHARACTERISTICS OF LARGE UNGULATES HUNTING MANAGEMENT IN THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA AT THE REGIONAL LEVEL

Vukan Lavadinovic, Zoran Popović, Dejan Beuković

Abstract


Serbian hunting has suitable habitats, biodiversity potential and tradition. The breakup of SFR Yugoslavia severely affected it, causing devastation. In recent years, hunting has been recovering, but no proper insight has been provided about its current state. This paper is focused on the hunting management  of autochthonous large ungulates as one of indicators of the quality of hunting in the country. Because traditional analyses are conducted at the national level, this research includes also regional comparison in order to identify potential differences. The results show that abundance of these game species at the national level is at an unsatisfactory level. Meanwhile, their management characteristics at the regional level are homogenous. It means that decision makers can implement the same measures to improve the game abundance and establish adequate management practices.
