Abstract

In Hungary, most of the game damage is located in a few counties. 75-80% of the agricultural
game damage originates from 5 counties, but those take only 24% of Hungary’s area. During the hunting season of 2016-17, the amount of agricultural game damage almost reached 2.6 billion HUF and a quarter of it was paid in Somogy County. SEFAG is the largest game management company in Somogy that manages half of the county’s forests. The investigated Kaposvár Forestry is one of the eight forestries of SEFAG and it has 7 600 hectares hunting area. Our research shows that game damage is decreasing and it is centralized around a few settlements in this area. Also, we found a significant change in the structure of crops affected by game damage.
