The Makyovtsi Game Breeding Area is situated in the Strandzha Mountain and is part of Kosti State Forestry. It is managed by the company VI Hunting OOD.
The Game Breeding Area is located at an altitude of 200-220 masl, enjoying a mild Mediterranean-continental climate due to its proximity to the Black Sea. The winters are relatively mild, with high average temperatures of 2 to 3 °C in January. Such favorable conditions provide a longer vegetation period which contributes to the good game diversity and opportunities for hunting wild boars, roe deer, red deer, wolves, foxes, jackals, wildcats, Eurasian woodcocks, wood pigeons, etc.
The Makyovtsi Game Breeding Area offers the main types of hunting practiced in Bulgaria, as approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, perfectly arranged in compliance withall hunting safety requirements.
