    This is a German Hunting Association badge with the area name added. Somewhat strange seeing as where WOROCHTA is located??

    Well, actually this is not so strange as it should be noted that this badge has nothing to do with the Third Reich-era Deutsche Jägerschaft [German Hunting Association].

    St. Hubertus' stag - or the Hubertushirsch in German - is a traditional and widely-used symbol for hunting in general which is known and used in various European countries*
    As such, it was merely adopted by the Third-Reich era Jägerschaft, although in a version where the Christian cross between the stag's antlers was replaced with the Swastika.

    *) Do a Google image search for the term "Hubertushirsch" and you will find countless depictions of it on everything from jewellery to Jägermeister bottles.
    For some info on the legend from which the symbol originates, please see: Hubert, Patron Saint of Hunters - Written by Mitch Ballard.
