Large game (high game = "Hochwild" in German)

According to the hunting regulations all cloven-hoofed game except for roe deer belongs to the large game. Furthermore, wood grouse, golden eagle and white-tailed eagle are large game.
The term “Hochwild” has its origin in the past. It described game that was specially esteemed for hunting and thus reserved for the high nobility (the high hunt - “Hohe Jagd” in German).
