Geocache Description:

Observe deers and wildhogs along the tourist path (HU:GCSZKE).

Deer Watching The deer was a mithycal animal of Hungarians some thousand years ago. According to the chronicle written by Kézai Simon, two brothers, called Hunor and Magyar who were crown princes, lost their way in the course of hunting after wonder deer and in this way they found a new fatherland. This was the first Hungarian (in own language: magyar) conquest together with Huns in the Carpathian basin. And now, you can find a lot of wonderful deers in Hungary: five antlers trophy among ten best over the world were shooted in Hungary. When you are searching for this geocache, you can observe deers closely. Approximately seven hundred beautiful deers live on the Deer Farm of Pannon Equestrian Academy in Böszénfa, which is the largest closed area for game keeping in Central Europe. Some of the red deers living in natural circumstances can be seen from the forestry road. You drive on No67 road and when you are arrived in Böszénfa, you turn west near the pub called Kerékkötö Csárda. First you can see water buffalos and Hungarian Grey species cattles in the yard of the grange – it is an ancient genus of cattles living in the open air in summer and winter and able to offer against BSE (Creutzfeldt-Jacobs) disease. Go straight on the forest road which is at the same time also the hiker path signed by Piros sáv red stripe and later you can see the deers and wild hogs beyond the fences. The wildhogs had important (and real) parts in some tragical events of Hungarian history. E. g. king Saint Stephen's sole son, Saint Imre crown prince was killed by a wildhog in the course of hunting in 1031. This results struggle for succession to the throne after king St Stephen's death (1038) for many years.
