Plumlov

The Plumlov division manages a total of 17,359 ha of forest land in the territory of the Březina military training area.

The Plumlov division manages a total of 17,359 ha of forest land, mostly located in the northern part of the Vyškov district, in the territory of the Březina military training area. This territory is part of the Drahany Highlands natural forest area. In addition to the main forest unit, the division manages forest land in detached parts of Slavkov u Brna and Borohrádek in East Bohemia.

An important characteristic of the main territory managed by the division is the fairly rugged terrain configuration with a relatively large range of altitudes, from 260 to 660 m above sea level. It is an area furrowed by numerous valleys with deep gorges, as well as being rich in ponds, streams and meadows abounding in flowers. Apart from forests, there are also deforested target and training sites of the military area. The tree composition is characterized by a rich diversity of species.
The division’s economic activity is carried out by three forest administrations and the service administration.

Gamekeeping

With regard to gamekeeping, the Plumlov division manages two hunting districts operated at the division’s own expense. The larger of the two is Březina, covering the territory of the military area of the same name, and the smaller is Bílý Vlk. The normalized game species in both hunting districts are red deer, roe deer, wild boar, hare and pheasant, and in the Březina hunting district also fallow deer. The annual hunt includes about 230 red deer, 600 roe deer, 500–1,000 wild boars, 15 mouflons (Březina) and, more or less accidentally, up to 10 sika deer. Small game is not hunted in the Plumlov division. Trophies are of average quality; 2–3 red deer trophies annually exceed the bronze medal level, but roe deer trophies very rarely reach the medal level. Game is hunted by fee-paying guests based on year-round licences, as well as by gamekeepers and VLS employees. Fee hunting is preferred for trophy game.

An interactive exhibition of the history and crafts of the Drahany Highlands, including a TGM educational centre, can be found in Drahany near the border of the military training area. The museum, opened in 2014, also offers a self-service café and a technical-physical play area for both big and small children.

Fishing

The Plumlov division manages a total of 18 ha of water areas of its own fish ponds and the Myslejovice dam fishing district on an area of ​​8 ha. Fishing licences are sold for the Příhon, Jandovka and Hrádek fish ponds. The Myslejovice Dam and the Příhon and Jandovka ponds are located in the Březina military training area, so fishing is limited by military training. The Hrádek Pond lies outside the military training area. Fishing is governed by the applicable fishing regulations of the Plumlov division of VLS ČR, s. p. and by the rules specified in the angling authorizations for the fish ponds.
