Hunting ground GaltürProbably one of the most beautiful hunting experiences in the Alps.
Luigi Marcati’s newest hunting ground stretches between 1,600 and 3,000 m above sea level in the midst of the magnificent Tyrolean mountains. Galtür, a traditional village with a rustic character despite the tourist development, attracts with unique views and a lot of untouched nature. In addition to active hunting, also a unique opportunity to observe the local game species in their natural habitat and enjoy unique views.
Chamois prefer to inhabit rocky areas and more difficult-to-access open spaces above the timberline up to about 3,000 m altitude. The diurnal species is ideally adapted to life in the high mountains, changing from short summer hair to dense winter hair and possessing horny shells that provide support when climbing.
The diurnal roe deer prefers forest edge zones and sparsely wooded areas and is considered the smallest deer species. Roe deer are characterised by their slender build, long legs and relatively small hooves. Only male roe bucks wear antlers, which they shed between October and December.
With a body weight of 300 kilograms and a shoulder height of 1.50 metres, red deer are among the largest deer species. The species, which is both diurnal and nocturnal, wears a reddish-brown coat in the summer months and a brown-grey coat in the winter months and organises itself in herds.
The rock deer belongs to the goat species and prefers steep, exposed, sunny locations as its habitat. The agile game species is characterised by its strong, stocky body and stocky legs. Both sexes carry horns, but live in separate herds and only meet during the rutting season in high winter.
In the Galtür hunting area you can also hunt capercaillie and black grouse, both of which belong to the grouse family with their feathered feet, as well as marmots. The latter are one of the largest rodents and are extremely agile despite their stocky bodies. Although they are diurnal, they spend 90% of their lives underground.
Details about the precinct
A total of approx. 10,300 ha of alpine and high alpine landscape allow for unique hunting experiences of rock deer, red deer, roe deer and of course chamois.

Our “hunting lodge” with several bedrooms is located in the centre of Galtür – you can also spend the night in one of the two hunting lodges belonging to the hunting area and recover from your stalk.
