Bugojno is a town and municipality in central Bosnia and Herzegovina on the river Vrbas. It is located in the Central Bosnia Canton of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina entity. The town is 130 km (81 mi) to the northwest from Sarajevo, with an estimated population of 50,000 (as of July 2007).

To the west towards Kupres is a region called Koprivica. This enormous forest was once one of Tito's (the president of former Yugoslavia) favorite hunting spots. The dense forest and lack of any human settlements have created a sanctuary for bears, wolves, deer, boar and a plethora of other wild animals. Hunting associations are very active in this region and there are many mountain and hunting lodges dotting the forest. Duboka Valley (deep valley) is a designated hunting area covered by thick spruce. Kalin Mountain is a popular weekend area for hikers and nature lovers.
