The awesome thing about the Adriatic is that it’s not just one large coastline. You only need to venture a few miles inland, for you to get a really nice appreciation of the forested or wild region of the Adriatic. This part of Europe can get quite wild, and that’s a really good thing.

You have to understand that in many parts of the Adriatic, as well as other areas in this part of the Mediterranean, it seems like human beings have basically plowed under all the last remaining forests. Everything is manicured. Everything is agricultural.

In other words, everything is cultivated to such an extent that they serve human interests. While there’s ultimately nothing wrong with that, it also goes without saying that something is lost when a country basically has destroyed all its forests. Sure, there are a lot of trees. But these trees were planted by human beings.

These trees are well manicured. These trees are cultivated. They are the furthest thing from truly wild groves. Believe it or not, there are certain parts of the Adriatic that still have a lot of wild trees and these make for great hunting spots.

If you really want to take your trip to the Adriatic area of the Mediterranean, to a whole other level, bring along a shooting mat. Seriously, if you are into hunting, and you want to achieve solid results, bring your shooting mat. A lot of hunters hesitate to do so. I really cannot say I blame them. After all, if you are quickly trying to get out of town to catch up to your buddies on your hunting trip, you want to keep things as simple as possible. Putting all sorts of gear on your ‘to bring’ list can weigh you down and flat out distract you. Believe me, I get it. But you are definitely putting yourself in a bad position by not bringing the right gear though. Remember that.

You’re not going to run into problems with customs. You’re not going to experience legal issues. Bring it along with you, so you can take your hunting success to the next level. Believe me, in the Adriatic there are no shortage of game animals.

You’ll continue to talk about the great the great fun you had in this part of the Adriatic or the Mediterranean, for a long, long time to come, because you brought the right equipment. Do yourself a big favor, bring the right mat to shoot from, so you don’t have to worry about positioning, or comfort as you wait for the right deer to come along, so you can shoot it.
