The most common is trophy animals, such as rabbits, otters and pheasants. In Tupižnica there is also a reserve for deer game, a phaserian with 1,500 fagian chickens, as well as a part intended only for hunting wild boars.
At the highest part of the hunting area, near the border with Bulgaria, you will most likely find deer, which is usually large body weight and therefore have a high trophic value. Srines of game have almost all the area of Stara Planina, and their value varies from average to excellent.
