Hunting and Hunting Associations in Đakovo

The most important person of the 19th century in Đakovo was Bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer. He was managing the Church’s property in eastern Croatia efficiently and strengthened the area economically to such an extent which enabled the founding of modern Croatian scientific and cultural institutions, and in addition to being a patron of sciences and arts, he was also a nature lover. Hunting was his favourite pastime. In 1848 feudalism was abolished and the hunting rights were transferred to the land owners, which improved the reduced number of game. The situation was relatively favourable only on the 125 acres of bishop’s land in Đakovo, where Strossmayer had his seat, Valpovo and Baranja. Strossmayer inherited hunting grounds where game animals had been bred for a century; he introduced new animal species and expanded the hunting grounds to such an extent he could even give animals away as presents. He expanded the existing and established new breeding sites. He built a fence around the Gara forest near Grojani and inhabited it by pheasants and fallow deer. He believed that hunting grounds should resemble parks and deer to be the forests’ adornment so he never killed them himself. The heritage of Strossmayer in hunting can still be felt today. The biggest hunting and breeding ground is Mačkovac which stretches over 19 thousand hectares and is the habitat of over 400 boar, 120 fallow deer and other deer species.
