Yamadori, Bears and Wolves in The High Tatras Mountains of Czech Republic

I have collected Yamadori throughout Europe but one of the craziest adventures was with Pavel Slovak, his son Kuba and two of Pavels friends. The ‘walk’ in to the collecting site took THREE HOURS! and we climbed over 1,200 metres. But it was NOT the climbing that I had to watch out for it was the Bears and Wolves.

The trip was very successful bagging 10 trees… but it was exhausting. I reported from the top on one of the mountains that we climbed… and from the top of a tree so that I could get a better look at the view.

After climbing the tree I was told how foolish I was because Bears climb trees… as once you are up a tree you have nowhere to ‘run’ 😦

    • Not all of the High tatras is a national park, and we collected with permission of the ski operators… you are right to enquire… permission is always the most important thing with yamadori

      • I was almost sure you had the permission 😉 There are certain areas that have been destroyed recently and will be recultivated – I suspected this to be one of the areas where some people with good contacts could get the permission to collect the remains.
        Do you by any chance know the name of the organization than gives the permission?
