With its hunting grounds of some 31,000 hectares, Mecsekerdő Zrt. is one of the largest wildlife management companies in southern Hungary. The wildlife population allows for an annual bag of roughly 2,900 wild game, consisting of around 900 red deer, 1,400 wild boars, 500 roe deer and 100 fallow deer. The game population is average and typical of highland regions, but a few outstanding stag and boar trophies are bagged each year. The fallow deer population is relatively small; nevertheless, there is game of excellent trophy quality. In addition to open-field hunts, Mecsekerdő Zrt. also welcomes hunters to its wild boar preserve in Nagymáté. In Sasrét, a wild boar and a mixed game preserve welcome visitors. While the highland roebucks are average, hunting them on the hilly, almost 90% forested terrain is a real adventure.
