On the SKS note... I joked at him a little the first time I hunted with him about his SKS. We had down into a river bottom to check my zero and pop off a few rounds. Then I watched him call out and blast small targets with lightning speed and precision with the open sights from 20 to well over 200 yards away. Reminded me of that old saying, “Beware of the man with one rifle...”

That said, Horia has many fine firearms but that Romanian SKS is extension of him when he shoulders it.

There's no such thing as an honest Romanian- at least not when dealing with some American sucker.
The jackass policemen without guns run around arresting people for BS they didn't do in order to get bribes.
Border passport checks are liable to hold you up and search your stuff until you bring them a beer or a sandwich or something.
Everyone pulls over to piss on the side of the road - men and women.
Typical eastern europe stuff.

Stay the hell away.


Have you ever been to Romania?

I have been twice and hunted with Horia both times. The people are nice, and the food is great. The only comments regarding Americans is they wished we had come earlier.....like in 1945.

As far as "the only people with "hunting License" are communist dictatorship military brass or their cronies", that ended in 1989. Romania has been a member of NATO since 2004.

CaptArab, I'm goint to have to call total Bull Shyt on your bad mouth post of Romania. I am an American citizen that permanently relocated here in Romania 6 years ago. I made 3 week vacations here almost every year for 13 years before I decided to move over here. So I knew a lot about this country before I moved here. So I will address your allegations of Romania.

I hunt with several large groups of hunters and all hunters in those groups have hunting licenses The difference between here and the U.S is that before you get a hunting license, you have to have a good knowledge of rules, regulations and the game animals that you will be hunting, Yes, poaching does exist. But to the best of my knowledge, it appears to be no worse or less than I was aware that was going on in the U.S.
Romanians are very honest people with very big hearts. How hard is it to get "suckered" in any given large city in the United States?
The "Jackass Policemen", as you call them, DO carry guns. If you commit a serious crime that justifies the use of a firearm, you will find out quick enough. And I would not suggest that you try to bribe a policeman. There is a good chance that you will soon be wearing hand cuffs.
Yes, border passport checks are liable to hold you up and your stuff may be searched, just like any other border in this world. This is everywhere since 911, where have you been. And again about the "bribes", I would not advise you to try to bribe a border guard, even with "a beer or a sandwich or something".
As far as everyone pulling over to piss on the side of the road go's, not "everyone" and not as often as you might think.
Bro, you need to get out more. RJ

CaptArab, that was not my experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my hunt in Romania and am saving funds to go again.

I seem to recall that several centuries ago when the muslims last tried to enter in force, the Wallachians and Transylvanians ran them up on pikes and left them along the side of the road as a warning to others. Perhaps you are still "butt-hurt" from that?

I would love to go hunting in Romania some day. My last name is Pacola and my great grandfather left Romania after WWI, coming into the USA through Seattle. I have always wanted to make a trip to my homeland.

If you don't mind me asking, how much would a Roe deer hunt cost? Is it difficult to get a license to hunt them? Are foreigners allowed to bring their own rifle for hunting?

I just found “Untamed Romania,” a Netflix documentary on the Carpathian Mtns in Romania, their wildness, wildlife, and stunning scenery. Very worthwhile.

Funny, I’m watching the same thing right now and came on here to read some of Horia’s posts.

I checked into Hunting Romania. Before all this COVID
started I was having trouble finding the shortest flight
To Romania. Most I found were long lay overs in different Countries
One was 8 hr in Germany. Flights from the US EastCoast
I will wait the crazy would out until things get better.

Blaserman: I flew Lufthansa (partnered with United Airlines). Departure from the US was on a United flight from Dulles to Munich. About a 2-3 hour layover, then connected to Bucharest on a Lufthansa aircraft. The return was slightly different but there was no layover longer than about 3 hours. That should be quite doable for you since you are in MD.

Not sure how the flight schedules have changed due to the COVID situation.

There's some damn good-looking women in Romania. Some of whom would make you guys a fine, well-behaved wife. Trip of a lifetime. Plus good hunting.

I will like to fish hunt in the Mediterranean sea this September, I hope to catch some big fish. Anybody have a better location in mind to fish hunt this September. France, England, Italy, and Spain is my most preferred location. Greece is cool too, I love Santorini.

Have you ever seen a picture of the beautiful Romanian Female soldiers? I'd go there just to see a military parade if they were in it.

It may be different if you're flying with a checked rifle, which I wasn't, but when I've traveled to Romania it was much cheaper and there were many more options if you buy your flight to one of the major hubs - usually MUC - separately. There are, or at least were pre-COVID, six or a dozen regional flights a day on from there to any of the Romanian cities for less than a hundred bucks. You may have issues getting checked luggage forwarded to some of the smaller carriers so leave yourself enough time to go through security again.

Beautiful country, great people.
