Exciting Hunting and Fishing Destinations EDITION 2017


the b25 is one of the best game guns in the world. question is, how good are you?

B25

Dylan Williams, Founder, the Royal Berkshire Shooting School, with the legendary Handmade B25. jmbrowningcollection.com


Foreword of the founder We are celebrating with this edition 10 years existence of the hunting and fishing guide by Magic Safari Lodges. During all those years we have selected destinations of which we know they provide quality in game as well as in comfort. But we have also been strong advocates of conservation, hunting ethics and local community involvement especially in Africa. Nevertheless it looks like Western Governments relentlessly attempt to shut down big game hunting in Africa under the cover of conservation. They seem to put more value on the lives of animals than they would of humans in Africa. They claim that without their efforts these animals do not stand a chance. The consequence of shutting down big game hunting in Africa would be disastrous not only for the animals, but even more disastrous for humans. When one looks at areas where hunting is no longer allowed, such as Kenya, the results speak for themselves.

Outside of national parks, animal population has dramatically declined. This decline has impacts throughout the entire food chain and in the end is more destructive then helpful. Hunting brings a positive impact to the resident of rural African communities where the land is harsh and where it is difficult to make a living from agriculture. It is a source of income, provides jobs in hunting related tourism and brings money to communities for education of their children. If the wildlife population would not have an economic value then it would be seen as either a nuisance or a threat. I think Africa deserves the support of the hunting community worldwide and I plead that we actively participate in all initiatives taken by our hunting organizations to counter the anti-hunting extremist ideologists who are trying to make occupation as morally repugnant in the eyes of the general public.

Scandinavian Pro Hunters Unique Geese shooting In Skåne, we offer fantastic goose hunting on and around our hunting lodge Markie Hage. The best conditions for these hunts are often difficult to predict, but when the big migration of birds are coming to our areas we are then normally seeing ten thousands of geese in a day, so those who are lucky enough to be able to participate may be rewarded with the goose hunt of their lives. There are no bag limit so every year we are having days with 200 plus geese in a day! World class Roebucks in Skane, South Sweden It is no coincidence that Swedish Roebuck are classified as the most beautiful buck in the world. Tall, slender, and symmetric, they will provide you with an awesome trophy that will most certainly find a prominent spot in your home.

Sabournac

Graet Spanish Hunts

Unique in Europe, Sabournac is a private estate which has been organizing mallard duck hunting for 25 years. This hunt both surprises and appeals to hunters who like to shoot several hundred cartridges at high flying mallards.

The red-legged partridge is a endemic to Spain considered the most sporting and challenging bird in the world?by hunters due to its beauty, audacity and fast and erratic flight. The driven partridge shoot is a shooting style with a long and deeply rooted tradition in Spain, which allows the hunter to enjoy the red-legged partridge in a far more challenging way, since the speed and height reached are unbeatable, putting more than one expert wing shooter to the test.

Sabournac offers only high quality, exclusive hunting organized and customized to meet your specific demands. The hunting estate is open from the first September to January 31 and can be booked for a private hunting trip of 2 to 8 hunters. As a “Browning Partner Lodges”, several guns are available on the estate. This free service provides an opportunity to shoot with topquality shotguns, as well as to avoid the hassle of travelling by air with a gun. Winchester cartridges are available on site for 12, 16 and 20 bore guns.

Our shoots are some of the best and most famous in the country. Groups of 3 to 10 guns usually bag around 1,000 birds per day or even double that amount depending on their shooting skills.

The estate is 60 km Est from Toulouse International Airport with direct flights from most European capitals and 25 km from CastresMazamet Airport where all private planes can land.

Thanks to the wide range of estates we manage and their diverse and beautiful landscapes we are able to offer some of the most spectacular and challenging drives to be found in Spain. Featuring birds with fast and erratic flight, both low and high flying, we can offer drives that allow hunters to enjoy very varied and challenging shoots.

Magnus i. Improved excellence. Perfection must be built into even the tiniest details. This is why we have collaborated with Leica riflescope users on the numerous innovative and practical details of our Magnus i models – and have now perfected an already excellent product. The new, tool-free, turret scale zeroing offers significant advantages when sighting-in, and the diameter of the already extremely crisp, bright red dot has been further reduced for even better long-range capability. The illumination system has been revised to considerably reduce battery drain, and changing batteries is easier than ever before. All of which gives you the freedom to concentrate on what’s essential: safe, precise shots and a per fect hunting experience.

Models: LEICA MAGNUS 1– 6.3 x 24 i LEICA MAGNUS 1.5 –10 x 42 i LEICA MAGNUS 1.8 –12 x 50 i LEICA MAGNUS 2.4 –16 x 56 i

Geovid HD-B. Clarity, ruggedness, precision. As somebody who relies on wild venison for my restaurant business, I use rifles and binoculars daily. I cull 500 wild deer a year and my Leica Geovid 10x42 HD-B rangefinder binoculars are an essential part of my hunting life. Their clarity, ruggedness and ability to tell range in any conditions make them my favourite piece of equipment.

K3 EXTREM SINGLE-SHOT RIFLE

Single shot rifles are usually something for purists: One barrel, one bullet, one locking system – that really is all you need for proper hunting. The proof, that this minimalistic concept can be reduced even more is provided by the Merkel K3 Extrem. Whoever holds this drop single shot rifle for the first time, can hardly believe it: It is almost impossible to make a gun more lightweight and easy to handle. These 92 centimeter long guns only weigh 2,4 kilos – however they are still fully functional hunting rifles. The calibre range: from 6,5x57R over the 308 Win. all the way to the 8x75IRS. Finest craftsmanship – for maximum accuracy.

TURKEY

Owner: Kursat & Temir Ekenler WildHunting in Turkey is owned and managed by the Ekenler Family and currently run by two brothers, Kürşat and Temir. They are both extremely keen young hunters and have hunted extensively throughout Turkey and abroad.  The Ekenler family has been landowners in Tarsus, Cukurova area for more than 300 years. Hunting is a family tradition, proudly passed from father to son and finally to us. We have always had a passion for the wild; This has been supported by their father who took Temir and Kürşat with him to many hunts all over the world. With some of the world’s finest species on our doorstep, we have naturally concentrated on big game hunting. WildHunting offers a total of 6 speacies of big game, which are natively found only on Turkish hunting land, this makes the hunting unique! 1) Anatolian Bezoar Ibex 4) Anatolian Red Deer       

2) Anatolian Konya Sheep 5) Anatolian Urfa Gazelle

3) Anatolian Chamois     6) Anatolian Wild Boar

Our family has controlled the shooting in large areas of the Taurus Mountains for generations. We therefore operate as a private family hunting estate, rather than an agent buying from different concessions all over the region. As a result, we have controlled, conserved and developed our areas in a manner that we believe to be unique in the whole country. This approach is key to our way of maintaining the highest standards in everything we do.   Anatolian Bezoar Ibex: is a very popular big game of our mountains and has a very special reputation amongst hunters from around the World and a very challenging and special hunt for us. We have managed to protect and control the game by careful selective shooting and are proud to say that we have some of Turkey’s finest trophy Ibex hunting – with trophies that most can only dream about. We have averaged 44’’(110cm) over the past hunting years and harvest more than a few trophies between 48’’ – 52’’(120-130cm). We have also been living this dream of ethical, sporting hunting, conserving both the game and our wonderful natural environment, for ourselves, our clients and our guests, now and in the future.   Anatolian Wild Boar: is the most common big game and a very exciting hunt for our hunting guests; since Turkey produces the biggest boars in the World with body size exceeding 200-250kg and tusks measuring between 24-30cm. We have been organizing and carrying out hunts for our guests, with a very experienced and trained team for over 20 years.  We do not over promise, over sell or over hunt. Our family reputation is far too important for that. This experience, applied to the management of our home estates, equips us to provide you with the hunting trip of a lifetime.  OUR EXTENSIVE WORLDWIDE HUNTING EXPERIENCE MEANS THAT; WE SEE THE TRIP FROM A CLIENTS EYES, WHICH WE THINK IS VITAL!   Please visit our website and write Temir or Kursat an e-mail to start exploring your next hunting adventure with WildHunting in TURKEY!

AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Dawid Muller Manager: Dawid Muller Daggaboy Hunting Safaris

Owned and operated by Dawid Muller, a well-known Namibian professional hunter who has been active in the hunting industry for more than 30 years, Daggaboy Hunting Safaris offers dangerous as well as plains game hunting opportunities on their exclusively owned hunting areas in Namibia. Hunts for dangerous game are conducted on their exclusively operated conservancy in the Caprivi region, bordering the Mamili National Park in the south and the Mdumu National Park on the northern side. Hunts for plains game take place in an open (no high fences) area of over 40 000ha in the Khomas Hochland area in central Namibia. The plains game hunting area being only 60km south-west of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, means that you will arrive at your hunting destination within an hour’s drive from the Hosea Kutako International Airport. Accommodation is offered in five luxurious double rooms in the hunter’s wing next to the colonial-style farmhouse on Dawid’s ranch, with en suite bathrooms and wireless access to Internet. Up in the Caprivi the accommodation is in en suite bungalows or tents (client’s choice) with running hot and cold water. Excellent food, complimentary beverages, alcoholic drinks as well as a daily laundry service is included in both areas. Daggaboy Hunting Safaris endorses the practice of ‘fair chase’ in hunting, so although 4x4 vehicles are used in the initial process of locating the game in both areas, all hunts and possible follow-ups are thereafter done on foot. Passion for what he does, and personal attention to every detail of your hunt and stay is what Dawid is known for to which the very high percentage of return hunters to Daggaboy Hunting Safaris is a testimony. So, you might arrive as a client, but you will definitely leave as a friend.

SOUTH AFRICA Owner: K&K Premium Fort Governor´s Estate - The thrill of the chase in the spirit of the colonial safari Hunting as it was in colonial times is the experience that awaits you at Fort Governors Estate. The Estate and the surrounding area boasts a rich hunting history that stretches back into ancient times. The San people traversed this magnificent landscape, harvesting the plentiful game species that are endemic to the area. Their beautiful cave paintings still exist here as an ode to their way of life, living in harmony with nature. Today, this vast 6,700-hectare wild game reserve is an amalgamation of four former estates. In recent years, this well established reserve has been returned to its former glory to create a perfect natural wilderness supporting an outstanding population of healthy game. An incredible twenty-seven different game species can be hunted on Fort Governors Estate - which is also highly regarded internationally for its extraordinary population of the iconic Kudu. Four diverse ecosystems and an exceptional variety of plants and trees make up this abundantly nourishing environment – a key contributor to the magnificent game population found on the estate. The spectacular valleys are home to pristine Fish River Valley Bushveld, the rolling hills flowing out onto lush grassland plains and the dramatic plunging cliff faces provide the ideal habitat for many species. Careful management of the four distinct habitats and the animals within them, ensures that the estate remains ecologically balanced. Sustainability is the key Hunting at Fort Governors Estate incorporates sustainable game management and fair chase hunting. You will hunt only for mature old trophies in the traditional way – walking and stalking. You won’t find any hunters shooting from a truck or simply waiting for game at waterholes. Stalking for the wiliest of old trophy animals in this magnificent landscape is certainly challenging, but you will be rewarded with an extraordinary hunting experience in the traditional African way, and you will be afforded an unforgettable impression of this spectacular landscape and diversity of game. The most intense challenge is the buffalo hunt in the bushveld. Stalking through valley thickets in dense bush until you encounter a buffalo face-to-face is an experience of a lifetime and a moment you will never forget. An epic hunting safari adventure in the land of the ancient San is an experience that will remain with you forever! Combine a family vacation with a hunting adventure? The ideal destination Ideally situated near Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown, Fort Governors Estate is a dream holiday destination. Located 40minutes drive from the pristine sandy beaches of the Sunshine Coast, the seaside town of Port Alfred is the heart of the Sunshine Coast, and boasts an elegant marina, the historic Royal Port Alfred Golf Club, modern shopping malls and quaint curio shops. A number of deep-sea fishing , and whale and dolphin watching tour operators can also be found here. The Addo Elephant National Park and the luxurious 5* Shamwari Game Reserve are also located within easy driving distance, where you can add a “Big5 Experience” to your safari. Grahamstown with its colonial architecture, and the seaside city of Port Elizabeth are both rich in their historical buildings, monuments and museums.

AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Classified Hunt & Fish Namibia Namibia has the largest diversity of biotopes in all of Africa, ranging from deserts such as the Kalahari and the world’s oldest, the Namib Desert, to red-coloured dunes (Sossusvlei) and sandy beaches along the Skeleton Coast or then again the subtropical marshes between the Okavango and the Zambezi. Twenty years of experience have taught us that all our guests like to discover all the different parts of this magical country, either by hunting or fishing in the different places. Therefore we offer you two hunting and two fishing destinations which we own or operate. Several combinations are possible, depending on the season, your availability and your mode of transport, all of which we would be more than happy to study together with you. Hunting the grandiose Etosha area and the massive Damaraland

PO Box 90538 Windhoek Namibia Tel +264 81 3032694 anneke.cloete@ huntandfishnamibia.com www.huntandfishnamibia.com

The southern border of Etosha National Park is well-known to hunters for its great variety of plains game. Our privately owned land covers a diverse landscape consisting of Mopani forests, dry river beds, acacia woodlands, plains, mountains, valleys and pans. You can hunt exceptional trophies and experience the magic of real hunting. Gold medals can be obtained for gemsbok, kudu and mountain zebra. The Damara dik-dik and the black-faced impala are even exclusive to this area. Leopards and cheetahs are considered the jewels of Etosha. We have three types of accommodations, each giving you different experiences on your safari. One way is using our African safari lodge with all the five-star amenities typical to the Southern African triangle and with an uninterrupted view of the surrounding valleys and plains. For a more typical hunting atmosphere, we use a camp with several thatched rondawels, decorated with local artwork and en suite bathrooms. For those nostalgic for an ‘Out of Africa’ atmosphere, we offer a live version in the tented camp where as the night falls the bush comes alive. More to the west lies the Damaraland concession. As no fixed settlements are allowed, we use our 4x4 and tents to set up flycamps in a moonlike environment. All meals are served around a crackling fire under the clear African sky or under thatch in the central lapa, with unique game dishes. On the day you wish to take a rest from hunting, it is possible to go for a game drive in Etosha National Park or simply relax around the swimming pool and the spa of the main lodge.

AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Classified Hunt & Fish Namibia PO Box 90538 Hunting the Kalahari dunes and Namib Desert South of Windhoek we own two hunting territories, each very representative of their specific biotopes. The Kalahari property features a combination of 74 sequential red sand dunes with the equivalent number of valleys stretching each over a kilometre wide. It is an amazing sensation to hunt in such countryside, as each dune hides a new spectacle of animals grazing in the next valleys. Here you can hunt mostly grazers such as springbok, gemsbok and wildebeest, all medal quality. Again accommodation can be provided in three different types of camps: the luxurious safari lodge with five-star facilities such as pool, spa and restaurant; the comfortable bungalow of the hunting camp with its magic lapa and boma; or finally, real bush life in a tented camp.

Windhoek Namibia Tel +264 81 3032694 anneke.cloete@ huntandfishnamibia.com www.huntandfishnamibia.com

A few hours westward, we have our Namib desert property, which again is a totally different view from the Kalahari. Montanalike grass plains contrast with the red hills, which seem imported from Arizona. Hunting tactics change 100%, since here the hunter and the animals have little space to hide. So far our accommodation is in our dune hotel near Sossusvlei, 40 minutes away, from which we organise fly-camps on the property. All game here is natural resident game. What’s the best season for hunting? There is no good, better or best time. There is only a period that is less comfortable because of high temperatures and a period less favourable to hunting. Therefore, we suggest:

AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Classified Fishing the legendary Skeleton Coast Set in the magical town of Henties Baai, on the edge of the Namib Desert, Fisherman’s Guesthouse welcomes fishermen and tourists alike. The lodge is the ultimate destination from which to experience the shore angling adventure of a lifetime. This beautiful lodge offers unforgettable accommodation a mere 200 metres from the beach. Listen to the sea, enjoy fresh air and cool evenings. Experience the different recipes for the catch of the day, accompanied by a glass of local wine. The nine comfortable rooms promise a good night’s sleep before the big fishing day. Renier De Villiers, our professional fisherman, will take you out on an unforgettable angling adventure. The once-in-a-lifetime experience is to catch a bronze copper shark (all the way up to 189 kg) from the sandy beach. You do not need to be an expert though, but let’s just say that the size of your shark will be determined by your patience and wisdom during this fight and not by strength or technique. Once the shark has been hooked, the pro will guide you on how to haul the catch in. If you want to change to edible fish for a day, you can catch big cobs as well as some locals, such as steenbras, galjoen or snoek. For the youngsters, the smaller sharks such as spotted gully shark are a good initiation before tackling the real stuff. Other activities our team performs are desert tours in 4x4, dune races on quads or shopping in Swakopmund and its harbour Walvis Baai.

Fishing the mighty Zambezi and the mysterious Okavango There are different ways to discover the unspoiled beauty of the Caprivi strip, locked-in between the Okavango and Zambezi rivers. They provide the perfect backdrop for some of the most unforgettable fishing experiences imaginable. We elected to build a lodge along the Okavango near Popa Falls. The fishing takes place up- or downstream from the lodge, guided by an experienced fisherman in a small but safe outboard boat. The main attraction is obviously the tigerfish; people travel the world just to fight this prehistoric-looking fish. Other species are different sorts of bream or buddle fish, and the area is also home to two rare fish species: the broadhead catfish and occelated spinyeel. Non-fishing activities include game drives into the Mgango game reserve or Caprivi National Park and boat trips on the river to view hippos and crocodiles. In contrast, the Zambezi has a lot more people living along its shores. A few years ago, we started to charter a houseboat in order to organise our fishing trips onto the river from this base. Experience taught us that the houseboat provided flexibility to move up and downstream, depending on fish density. Our success rate also went up tremendously. Although houseboat life is quite a different experience, all our guests just love it.

For us, trophy hunting and conservation is the same thing. As custodians of our natural inheritance, what gives us the right to hunt is the continuous commitment and determination to protect and conserve the wildlife and its habitat. We should never disregard this moral obligation. Anybody can offer you a trophy hunt, but only a few will offer you a great trophy hunt. Few are the outfitters who will give you that memorable safari experience that gives you the satisfaction you spent your money wisely and earned you the heart warming pride that you also invested in conservation and thus the survival of a sport you so cherish: hunting. “The owner of this company is a proud member of the CIC”

SOUTH AFRICA 600,000 acres FREE RANGE in South Africa! The animals that we hunt are in their natural habitats, which means that when hunting on the savannah, you will not find any that prefer dense bush, or vice versa. The animals are thus even more difficult to hunt, as they attempt to evade you in surroundings that they are well adapted to. The pressure exerted by hunters is low and the landowners in the conservancy decide their quotas themselves, aiming to maintain good trophy quality. The Baviaans River Conservancy The variety and number of animals, the beauty of the landscape and the size of the area are what this vast, unfenced area just outside of Port Elizabeth in Eastern Cape is known for. The Baviaans River Conservancy is a 450,000 acre unfenced area located two and a half hours northeast of Port Elizabeth. The conservancy is a varied area, with many different species. There are around 30 huntable species in the area, ranging from the relatively common wildebeest, blesbuck, oryx, waterbuck and impala to the rarer lechwe, mountain reedbuck and vaal rhebuck. There are also a large number of Cape kudu and bushbuck, which are darker and slightly smaller-bodied than their northern relatives, the southern greater kudu and Limpopo bushbuck. From the camp, there is a drive of an hour and a half to the coastal forests bordering the Indian Ocean, where we hunt blue duiker, caracal with dogs, Cape grysbuck and bushpigs.

Umkomaas Conservancy Hunt large kudu, nyala and bushbuck in this 150,000 acre unfenced area outside Durban! Umkomaas is a unique area in which you can hunt southern greater kudu, nyala and Cape bushbuck in their unfenced natural environment. Located in the Natal Midlands, it is a 150,000 acre conservancy which offers a superb and challenging hunt in dense bush for many of the area’s spiral-horned species, along with several of the more common antelope species. The low pressure exerted by hunters, good genes of the animals, food and age classifications contribute to making this area well-known for its greater kudu, nyala and bushbuck. Common reedbuck, impala, eland, waterbuck, oribi and wildebeest offer a varied hunt. The broken terrain and its dense bush makes spotting with binoculars followed by slow stalking the most effective hunting method. The conservancy is one hour and a half’s drive from Durban’s King Shaka Airport. Affiliations Wingshooting in South Africa Scandinavian Prohunters wingshooting programe varies from the fast flying Rock pigeons that we are hunting around Bloemfontein. To hunting francolin over pointing dogs in the beautiful mountain regions. Our hunts are in March - Mid June. The Wingshooting can be combined with plains game hunting in our FREE RANGE areas.

Hunts can be conducted on horseback or 4WD vehicles, depending on the hunter’s preference, horsemanship and physical ability. Final approach is done on foot. Hunters may expect to stalk around 10-12 km. per day which implies light hiking on relatively flat terrain.

Mobile: +54 9 11 3115 0028

We encourage bow hunters to hunt at Algar as they will find this country vast and open, making it easy to spot game from high vantage points. The hunting field and the hilly terrain is really broken with ravines and streams all around the scene where the animals come down looking for water to drink and pasture the valley which runs about 20 km through the center of the property. The tall grasses and bushes make the perfect camouflage for bow hunters’ activity. Bow hunters can shoot from 30 to 70 meters distance.

info@algar-safaris.com

Although Algar Safaris is very well known as a big game hunting company, we are pleased to introduce the best wingshooting programs, which are easy to combine with the finest big game hunting. We offer dove shooting and also the amazing mixed bag shooting (Dove, perdiz & duck hunting) near Gualeguay, in Entre Ríos province, just 240 km. north east from Buenos Aires. Hunters will experience the world-famous mixed bag: great duck hunting early in the morning, followed by a fantastic perdiz hunt with dogs and the possibility to shoot as many doves as they want in the afternoon or just shooting doves all day long. This unique opportunity to hunt 3 species during the same hunting day; every day, is fantastic. Finally, it’s important to mention that Algar Safaris has been supporting many important hunting associations across the U.S. and the world, in order to contribute to protect the freedom to hunt and promote wildlife conservation programs worldwide.

The lodge has around 25 shooting fields, which are at walking distance within our own property, or at a short drive through the region’s rich farmland. This allows for more time to relax and enjoy yourself, take a nap in between hunts, refresh in our swimming pool during the hot summer days or the outdoor hot tub in cooler days and why not take a pleasant massage for your sore shoulders and limbs! The overwhelming amount of birds flying over the head restlessly all day long ensures great opportunities for non-stop shooting suitable for all skill levels. Beginners have an unparalleled chance for improving their shooting skills aiming at low flying doves, while more experienced shooters find higher and faster targets quite a challenge. An average hunter may expect to shoot between 2 to 4 cases a day…and there’s No Bag Limit! With the shooting fields at walking distance from the lodge, dove shooting will never be the same. You will shoot more and travel less.

Giovanni Pacheco, Carlo Z., Guilherme G. de Oliveira. After 10 years of obligatory shutdown in my cinegetic activities, by insistence of the mutual friends, I return, and for my luck in a wonderful place like this one. I hope to have the opportunity to return more often. Were here together, in an impeccable stay. We leave registered the satisfaction and joy with which we were welcomed. Besides, we were awarded with a magnificent wild boar: (27 cm of tusk) hunted by Alexandre Oltramazi; and two “professional” goats hunted by Fernando Comunello and Alexandre Fasoli. Finally, a deep gratefulness to Guima and all the friends who we left here, remains. Obs.: Another wild boar, hunted by Alexandre Fasoli. Until the next one! Alexandre Fasoli, Fernando Comunello, Eduardo Guimarães and Alexandre Oltramazi. In almost full moon… 11hrs, tired eyelids…A single male enters - What is Laurindo? - “Male” it is, but I do not see the tusks! I thought: Good, tomorrow we are leaving, then… fire! And I hunted the greater boar of my life. Carlinhos said: another like this, not even in 100 years. Oh God! Meanwhile, Carlinhos with Eduardo were grabbing with nails and knives Lucio’s wild boar… Great night! Great hunting! Hug.

The shooting occurs on the shores of San Javier Rivers, over some of the hundreds of islands or over rice fields. We shoot twice a day, morning and evening, and there is plenty of time to relax at midday. For morning hunts, our hunters depart from the lodge in the dark, but after a hearty breakfast. Depending on the time of the year and the behavior of the birds (scouted every day), the time to get to the blinds will be from 20 minutes to an hour, including car or boat ride. Shooting over decoys starts at first light and continues until 10 am or after. Flocks of 20 or 30 ducks are not rare. Most days, duck hunters return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon departure at about 3pm for evening duck hunts. Evening hunts last until dark. Perdiz over dogs is a great choice to hunt. They are fast and challenging. Britain’s or German shorthair dogs hunt with us. Duck and perdiz shooting can be exchanged for Dove shooting, making the hunting diverse. Dorado Fishing is a great and fun sport. The river scenery is phenomenal. We fish in shallow water with current. Lots of different fish can be caught like stingray and Piranhas. We will use bait or fly rods depending on your request. Catch and release is what we do. In the heart of a magical environment, Veracruz offers a warm and cozy accommodation combined with the best of Argentina’s mixed bag hunting.

Newtown The Brigands has been in the Bettws Hall portfolio for 13 years and has firmly established itself as one of the highest pheasant shoots in the UK. It is located in the Dovey Valley on the edge of Snowdonia National Park and it is this natural topography that lends itself to presenting pheasants at the pinnacle of what is deemed reachable with a shotgun. The birds themselves are driven from a mix of traditional wooded valleys as well as the vast, heather cladded Cambrian Mountain sides that rise high amongst this rugged Welsh terrain. The Brigands is home to the legendary drive ‘Tommies’ which has established itself as one of the elite pheasant drives in the UK based on height and landscape alone. It goes without saying that first class hospitality both in the field and at Bryn Cleifion Hall is second to none. The Brigands is home to numerous legendary drives, ‘Welsh Haven’-Standing in the gully between two steep and imposing hillsides with birds flying swiftly overhead has been known to completely astonish newcomers to the estate. Quote: '720 is so named after the waterfall that cascade off the mountain 720 feet above where you stand in the wooded valley awaiting the pheasants that break.' G R E G YN O C HA L L

The newest addition to the Bettws Hall offering, Plas Dinam encompasses in excess of 5000 acres of spectacular landscape with a mixture of open moorland, woodland, vertical hillsides and seemingly bottomless valleys. The natural topography couldn’t be more suited to creating tremendous drives for both high and challenging pheasant and partridge, making it very unpredictable for anyone who takes on this magnificent estate. Even in its infancy we believe that Clives and Pump House drives will soon be on the bucket list for all high bird enthusiasts. The house and grounds are perfectly equipped for shooting guests, with lunches served in a spectacular glass roofed courtyard known as the ‘the old Stables’. Originally built for the 1st Lord Davies, in 1884, to house his hunting horses on the formation of the now world renowned David Davies, Fox Hound pack, who are also based on the estate. It really is a tribute to Victorian architecture and creates a wonderful environment for guests to relax in and deliberate the days sport. As with all Bettws Hall shoots, Plas Dinam is run by a dedicated and knowledgeable team who will work to the highest standards in creating seamless days with inspiring shooting and unforgettable hospitality. This, coupled with the estate now being ran by Eldrydd Davies, who is the Great, Great, Great granddaughter of Lord David Davies, you are guaranteed to leave with momentous memories from a treasured estate.

An Iron age barrow elevates itself from the Shropshire hills and is the backdrop to some incredibly challenging pheasant and partridge on drives such as ‘Keepers’ and ‘The Oaks’ The shoot lodge stands high upon the barrow and allows panoramic views across both Welsh and English countryside which are sure to take your breath away. Quote: ‘The hospitality at Kempton rivals that of a fine restaurant; charmingly discreet but ruthlessly efficient. Add to that some of the best presented birds in the country and you have an unbeatable combination’ – Tudor Griffiths

Gregynog Hall is an imposing Grade 1 listed Jacobean building that has sat on the same site for over 800years. The shoot is located just a stone’s throw away from Bettws Hall sporting lodges so is ideally located for access to and from breakfast and lunch by the log fire. The shoot itself utilises a long, deep valley with steep sides to present high and fast pheasant all in the shadows of the hall itself. With the aptly named ‘Middle’ along with ‘Ivors’ – is it understandable as to why this intimate shoot has a loyal following of returning guests year after year who are keen for their secret not to be revealed. Quote – ‘Gregynog ticks all the boxes – great accommodation and carpet slipper drives along with stunning birds for all standard of guns to enjoy. Finish your day with the ‘Vicarage’ drive and your day is complete’

Owner: Gwyn & Ann Evans Bettws Hall Bettws Cedewain Newtown Powys SY16 3DS Vaynor Park is a traditional parkland shoot set in Montgomeryshire in Mid Wales. Home to the Corbett-Winder family for generations, William Corbett-Winder can still be found out hosting days on the truly stunning estate. Vaynor utilises natural Welsh rolling valleys to offer high pheasant and partridge driven from mature oak woodland to anticipating guns standing in open pasture. A typical day will begin with the guns enjoying a leisurely breakfast in our sporting lodges and discussing the excitement of the day ahead. The team will then assemble in the courtyard and begin the very short drive to the estate where tea and coffee will be served in the converted tack room. It is here that pegs will be drawn and the order of the day will be revealed before proceeding to the morning drives. With signature drives such as ‘Hanging Wood’ presenting a steady flow of high, climbing pheasants and partridge exploding in singles and huge coveys alike – the shooting is constant from the first horn to signal the start of the drive, right until the very end. Vaynor Park exudes everything that is synonymous with driven pheasant and partridge shooting in the UK. Sporting bliss, beautiful countryside and wonderful hospitality make this the jewel in our crown.

This 19th Century estate was originally laid out as a hunting retreat and is now the home of the Trant family. The hall itself is architecturally majestic and would not look out of place in the Bordeaux region of Southern France! Drives such as ‘Forest Lodge’ and ‘Fron Green’ present tall pheasant driven from game crop and a mixture of deciduous and coniferous woodland towards guns that are located in deep valleys to ensure birds reach the line at high altitude. As with all of our estates, hospitality matched the sport, so Champagne and canape ‘elevenses’ precede a wonderful home cooked lunch back at the lodge before the afternoon of sport commences.

Owner: Gwyn & Ann Evans Bettws Hall Bettws Cedewain Newtown Powys SY16 3DS Chargot Estate lied in the heart of Somerset on the edge of the Exmoor National park. The shoot itself has forged a reputation as one of the most iconic high bird shoots in the UK, due largely in part to the deep valleys and undulating hills that present truly challenging shooting regardless of your experience. A scenic shooting lodge plays host to some wonderful lunches to re-create the morning’s excitement and to anticipate the afternoon’s adventures where it is likely you will be shooting drives such as ‘Fat Hen’ or ‘Spitfire’ – the latter of which should be a good indication as to the speed and height of the pheasants!

Molland has been the family home to the Throckmorton’s for over 800 years and lies in the depths of shooting country in Devon, All aspects of bio-diversity can be found here – woodland, moorland and wetland. The Exmoor National park is also home to a large volume of the UK’s red deer population, and it is not unusual to sight these magnificent beasts around the shoot when standing in anticipation of the hard flying pheasant and partridge from drives such as ‘Dipper’ and ‘Trevors’ which have become synonymous with West Country shooting in the UK – tall and fast!

This is what we would like to term ‘Devon Heaven’ – some of the most truly breath taking scenery can be found whilst meandering through the streams, brooks, open pasture land and dramatic valleys. West Molland is home to one of the most famous drives in the K – ‘The Wood’ – where pheasants are flushed from distant cover crop and then gain altitude over mature oak and coniferous woodland where they are hidden from the gun line until the very last minute before exploding high above the line of guns standing deep in the valley.

EUROPE FRANCE Experienced hunters usually need to go far to hunt big deer. This is often a long and troublesome trip, and sometimes accommodations are rough. As of this year, a new destination in France has opened, offering some of the biggest and most beautiful deer.

The owner Antoine Feidt, himself a very experienced hunter who has travelled the world, will personally welcome you and make it possible for you to shoot one of his exceptional deer.

Château St Michel

The deer are originally from Germany, and they were imported to France 10 years ago. They have been pampered and well taken care of in order to make this livestock so amazing today. They have been treated naturally and kept in the wild. Many stags have 30 points or more and go up to gold medals. For the first time, Antoine Feidt is opening this exceptional domain where he will, I am sure, prove the beauty and the quality of his deer. You will either hunt game from a hide on watchtowers or by stalking. The best calibres for hunting here are .300 Winchester, 9.3 x 62, etc..... A French hunting permit or license is mandatory. You will be hunting with the owner, who will gladly explain the evolution of his livestock and his theories on genetics.

SCI St Michel

So take advantage of this unique opportunity to discover these unique deer, and should you shoot one of them, it will most certainly become one of the most admired pieces in your trophy room. Certains chasseurs expérimentés vont au bout du monde pour chasser de grands cerfs. L’avion et les transfers sont souvent très longs et éprouvants. Or, depuis cette année, une destination en France permet aux amateurs de trouver  de très grands cerfs, le domaine Saint Michel. Situé dans la Nièvre entre Beaune et Saint-Honoré-les-Bains, un château complètement rénové vous accueille sur un territoire magnifique, offrant un confort digne de 5 étoiles: chambres, suites, repas, tout est merveille et délices. Antoine Feidt, le maître des lieux, lui-même chasseur hors pair, mettra tout en œuvre pour vous faire tirer un de ses plus beaux cerfs.  La souche, venue d’Allemagne il y a plus de 10 ans, a porté ses fruits et la qualité et la beauté des cerfs est remarquable. Nourris tout à fait naturellement, ils valent le coup d’œil, plusieurs faisant plus de 30 cors, certains allants jusqu’à la médaille d’or. Cette année, Antoine Feidt  ouvre pour la première fois son domaine.  La chasse se déroule uniquement à l’affût, sur de grands miradors ou au pirch. Les calibres recommandés sont: 300 Win - 9,3 x 62  - etc. Un permis français ou une licence est obligatoire. Vous chasserez avec Antoine Feidt, il se fera un plaisir de vous expliquer l’évolution de ses cervidés et sa théorie génétique en rapport avec son cheptel.

EUROPE SWEDEN Owner: Johan Persson Fjelljakt is an organisation with great expertise in all aspects of hunting in the Swedish mountains. We have been active for about a decade and, ever since we started, our philosophy has been to provide top class hunting packages. Everyone who works with Fjelljakt is carefully selected and a master at what they do. We are privileged to work in western Jämtland. The nature here is astounding, with open vistas that extend all the way to Norway. Jämtland is one of the last areas of real wilderness in Europe and we offer you the opportunity to explore it with us. We have chosen to focus on moose and game bird hunting, as our 15,000 hectares of hunting grounds have an almost unique game population. Our Hunting Villa lies at the heart of our 15,000 hectares of hunting grounds and is the base for our hunts. The Hunting Villa was built in 1896. Medstugan Hunting Villa embodies a genuine sense of hunting traditions and hunters have stayed here since the turn of the last century. Over the years, Medstugan Hunting Villa has attracted both royalty and big game hunters from foreign lands. This beautiful heritage building is our starting point every morning, whether we leave on foot or by helicopter after breakfast. MOOSE HUNTING, THE TRADITIONAL WAY Our most exclusive hunting product is one-on-one hunting with a barking moose dog. You and a tracker/dog handler hunt alone over large areas, waiting for the dog to find the moose. When the dog “holds” the moose through its rhythmic barking, we start our cautious approach on an extremely watchful moose. There are few hunting methods that bring about such a rush of adrenaline. This package also includes “calling for moose” in the dawn to increase your chances of shooting the “big bull”. We also offer driven hunts for moose. We hunt using experienced trackers/dog handlers. Depending on the wind and weather, we can choose whether to hunt with the dogs leashed or unleashed. All drives are conducted in beautiful open mountain terrain. GAME BIRD HUNTING We offer ptarmigan hunts using pointing bird dogs. Hunting takes place on the open mountainsides or in the forests of mountain birch. This hunting method necessitates a great deal of walking in the mountains, but the breathtaking surroundings mean you soon forget that you are also getting a little bit of exercise. Ptarmigan hunting is very sociable, as you have time to chat during the day; it is only in bird situations that discipline and a cool head are necessary. All of our hunts require that you are used to spending time in the outdoors and that you are physically prepared for long walks and long days in the mountains. Welcome to our world

EUROPE S PA I N Owner: Javier Corsini and Ignacio de Navasqüés Manager: Ignacio de Navasqüés Great Spanish Hunts The red-legged partridge (Alectoris Rufa) is a gallinaceous fowl endemic to Spain considered the most sporting and challenging bird in the world by hunters due to its beauty, audacity and fast and erratic flight. The driven partridge shoot is a shooting style with a long and deeply rooted tradition in Spain, which allows the hunter to enjoy the red-legged partridge in a far more challenging way, since the speed and height reached are unbeatable, putting more than one expert wing shooter to the test.  La Flamenca is our signature estate that we have managed four decades. It has 8,000 acres and is just 40 minutes by car from Madrid international and private airports, making it very accessible from the world’s capital cities. It’s vast surface, diverse and beautiful landscape allow us to offer some of the most spectacular and challenging drives in Spain. Featuring birds with fast and erratic flight, both low and high flying, we can offer drives that allow hunters to enjoy very varied and challenging shoots.  Groups of 3 to 10 guns usually bag around 1,000 birds per day or even double that amount depending on their shooting skills. We work closely with top gun manufacturers to offer you the best quality guns on-site, therefore  avoiding the inconvenience of travelling with them.  In southern Spain, the province of Cádiz, and thanks to hard work and sacrifice over the past 35 years, we are proud to manage most of the wild red-legged partridge populations, a true treasure trove in this day and age.  Our partridge shooting season runs from 15th September to 15th March.    At GSH we believe in offering the highest level accommodation featuring quality service and the most select gastronomy. This is why we place very special attention in these aspects, ensuring the hunting trip is a unique experience for both hunters and their companions. Our magnificent lodges are fitted out with all possible comforts and luxuries, and are completely equipped to satisfy all our guests’ needs.

Tall, slender, and symmetric, they will provide you with an awesome trophy that will most certainly find a prominent spot in your home. Scandinavian Prohunters have the best privately owned properties in the Southern part of Sweden / Skane where we every year shoot big gold medal bucks. The hunt is out from our charming hunting lodge. Quality Driven hunts Sweden has some of the finest driven hunts in Europe. What characterizes these, aside from the high density of game, is that both the safety and logistic of the hunt are first-rate. Additionally, we can often arrange for hunts of driven moose to be combined with ones of wild boar, fallow deer and red deer. Unique Geese shooting In Skåne, we can offer fantastic goose hunting on and around our hunting lodge Markie Hage. The best conditions for these hunts are often difficult to predict, but when the big migration of birds are coming to our areas we are then normally seeing ten thousands of geese in a day, so those who are lucky enough to be able to participate may be rewarded with the goose hunt of their lives. There are no bag limit so every year we are having days with 200 plus geese in a day! High quality Ducks Scandinavian Prohunters arrange hunts which take place at some of the best estates in Sweden. The shoot will take place in big waters and lakes which makes that the quality of the birds are very high and challenging. They are normally fully booked a year in advance so, if you plan to hunt in any of these places, make sure that you book in good time. Rough shooting Every year, Scandinavian Prohunters arranges a small number of exclusive hunts. We use the very best dog handlers and hunt at the fantastic castle of Markie Hage in order to be able to provide a fulfilling and comprehensive HUNTING experience. It’s a mixed hunt of partridge with pointer dog, take-off and flight for ducks and, depending on the season, small drives for pheasant.

ANDALUCIA SPAIN Owner: Classified Manager: Guy van Onsem Hotel Cortijo Soto Real Spain has always had a peculiar attraction for hunters. It of course has two very unique ways of hunting namely the “ojeo” driven partridge and the “monteria” driven big game. Andalucia has long been the el dorado of partridge shooters, providing some of the world’s finest shooting, in breathtaking scenery of hills and valleys. In contrast with the more northern hunting areas, Seville boasts a reputation of ever sunny skies and mild temperatures the whole hunting season long. Taking the sun at his post, with these “Spanish grouses” all around you is a pleasure for any hunter. The informal yet traditional atmosphere, punctuated by the convivial Spanish hospitality, makes these outings a daylong fiesta. Put Soto Real, the exclusive hunting resort and retreat in these surroundings and a Magic Safari Lodge is born.

But, what really triggers everyone’s imagination is that you can walk around in short sleeves in winter, enjoying your days out hunting while friends or associates back home are shivering in the cold. Your only thought then is: “this is magic”. Nature around Soto Real could not be more tempting! A true sportsman will appreciate the swift flight of the red-legged partridges driven from the hills by the majestic Andalusian horses over an armada of a dozen pair gunned shooters. Spain is rated as one of Europe’s last hunting paradises and the abundant nature of Soto Real offers most exciting opportunities for the shooting sportsman. The 5.000 acre shooting grounds are bordered on one side by the delta of the Guadalquivir and on the other by the Sierra Grazalema. Red-legged partridges are amongst the most challenging birds in Europe and our driven partridge shoots are an absolute delight! The mild Spanish climate almost always guarantees clear blue skies and warming sun. The breathtaking views of the Andalusian countryside and the beauty of the typical red partridge make the picture complete. Season starts early October to end only mid March

ANDALUCIA SPAIN Owner: Classified Manager: Guy van Onsem Hotel Cortijo Soto Real Wonderful outdoor cocktails, lunches prepared in the countryside by our chef and a beautiful presentation of the bag of the day will contribute to make your stay at Soto Real an unforgettable synergetic experience. Depending on the time of year, Soto Real offers many other shooting possibilities. From July till the end of September, quail and rabbits walk up shooting over dogs is organized for small groups. During the normal hunting season, hares and partridges can further fill up your bag and towards the end of the season flights of thrush represent a particular attraction. The main cortijo has this very special feel of a wonderful country house. Each room designed and decorated in a delightful blend of traditional Andalusian and old Moresque style, has an en suite luxury bathroom, intimate salon and private terrace. Soto Real does not attempt to present an image or make a statement. The aim is to provide guests with quiet comfort and discreet service, which will enable them to relax and draw from surroundings and to restore the senses that modern life tends to crush. The perception of luxury also has a touch of elegance: decoration is luxurious yet without ostentation, fantasy in all sobriety giving total tranquility. Soto Real is also perfect for couples and families, for a long weekend or a short week. It is within easy driving distance of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the towns of Jerez, Sevilla and Cordoba and the surrounding white villages - all available as chauffeur-driven excursions.

In the cortijo itself there are opportunities for horse and carriage riding, fitness, sauna, as well as a beauty-center, tennis and clay shooting, all organized by professional staff. Big game also abounds in the forested hills with species such as the red- and fallow deer, roe, mouflon and not forgetting the much-coveted wild boar. Hunting them in Monteria style, driven by dogs “podencos and mastines�, holds the greatest fascination for anyone, given both the skills and the ancient rites involved. Stalking the Spanish Ibex is a challenge for the fittest as the mountains around Ronda can take their toll.

EUROPE SCOTLAND No other country has a richer or more wonderful hunting history than Scotland. Traditional methods of hill stalking and hunting game have not changed for centuries and are continued to this day. This offers guests some of the most inspiring and unique hunting experiences in the most breathtaking locations anywhere in the world.

Owner: Ardnamurchan Estates

West Highland Hunting provides the most premium hunting experiences available anywhere in Scotland. Utilising a number of the most spectacular sporting estates together with their traditional cottage or castle accommodation, a hunting trip to Scotland will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable of your life.

West Highland Hunting

One of the main estates West Highland Hunting manages is the world famous and remote Ardnamurchan. Located on the Scottish west coast, Ardnamurchan is a 50 square mile peninsula in Lochaber noted for being completely unspoilt and undisturbed by man. As Britain’s most westerly point nestled among dramatic coastal and mountain scenery, it offers unrivalled sporting opportunities and some of the largest wild red stags in Scotland. There are 13 self-catering dwellings to choose from, incorporating everything from traditional Highland cottages to the impressive and luxurious Glenborrodale Castle which sleeps 32 people. West Highland Hunting is run by Head Stalker and Sporting Manager Niall Rowantree who has over 30 years experience as a stalker and deer manager and has managed the Ardnamurchan herd for over 20 years. Niall is well known for welcoming clients and saying goodbye to great friends. Every year clients of West Highland Hunting successfully take many trophy class wild Scottish red stags of SCI record book quality. There are also opportunities to hunt feral goats, roebuck, sika, fallow and the exotic Père David deer. Due to hunting seasons in Scotland, it is possible to stalk at least one species all year round. All of the estates that West Highland Hunting manage are carefully balanced to maintain and enhance biodiversity in accordance with best practice and the deer’s welfare. For the more experienced hunter, unguided hunts are available. The thrill of guiding your own Scottish adventure in a clearly defined area is a challenge any hunter will relish. This sort of hunting is offered to individuals who have the necessary experience and hunting qualifications from their home country. West Highland Hunting also offers world-class wildfowling and rough shooting for species such as woodcock. The Scottish Highland’s saltings and coastline ring to the clamour of wild geese and the whistling of duck wings as they hurtle overhead.  In the glow of evening and at the first flush of dawn, these are experiences that will never be forgotten.

EUROPE SCOTLAND Mingary Castle, Scotland

Owner: Ardnamurchan Estates Manager:  Niall Rowantree

In spring 2016 Mingary Castle will lowered its drawbridge for the first time in 150 years. Having crossed the drawbridge you enter the courtyard via a stone entrance way, turning the corner you are suddenly surrounded by the tall white walls of the three ranges. Entering the North range by the main door you are greeted by the warm oak panelling and Caithness stone flooring that runs throughout the entire ground floor. Climbing to the first floor you will find the large cosy sitting room with hot refreshments and cake to welcome you after your journey. Heading to the bedrooms on the second floor you find the MacIain room, the largest bedroom in the North range. It has two windows looking out to the courtyard, an en suite marble bathroom with a copper bath and its very own dressing room. Across the hallway the MacDougall bedroom, with half height panelling and crewel fabric lined walls is an intimate space. A small doorway cuts through the castle wall and leads to the most spectacular bathroom which has been created within the intramural passage way; nicknamed 'The Chapel' bathroom it has been said there is an old altar at the end of the room where the walk in shower now resides. The top floor, occupied by the McCain Suite is flooded with daylight, with views over the castle curtain wall to the sound of Mull and beyond. The two bedrooms with their hand crafted four poster beds have direct access to the battlement walkways and share a family bathroom, with marble walls and views to the stars.

EUROPE UNITED KINGDOM William Powell Sporting is all about providing an exceptional level of personal service ensuring the client receives the right advice as to the best sporting opportunities for them and then the implementation of this. William Powell Sporting is the UK’s leading Grouse letting agent, specialising in Driven and Walked up Grouse Shooting with sole access to some of the country’s most prolific and picturesque Estates, including the Peak District, North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland & Cumbria through to the Scottish Borders and to the Highlands of Scotland in the far north. Our wealth of knowledge of each Estate gives us the advantage over our competitors when choosing the right Estate to suit the client’s needs and shooting ability. Unlike almost every other Sporting Agent, we actually manage Shooting Estates, so have a far higher level of control over the operation than our competitors do, who merely rent the Moor by the day. We are a Sporting Agency which seeks to accommodate all of our client’s wishes. It is the finer detail which distinguishes us from the others. We have been doing it for over thirty years now and still have some of our original teams returning year after year. Testimonials from overseas Sportsmen are readily available. We offer an array of services from arranging Visitor Shotgun Permits, Airport Collections and Chauffeur Driven 4x4 hire, Gun Hire, Gun Storage, as well as in-the field instruction from the country’s leading Shooting instructors. Not only do we cater for our shooting guests, but we can also provide endless entertainment for non-shooting guests as well. We can arrange a wide variety of bespoke packages for these guests, whether they want a day at the spa, sightseeing or shopping in wonderful Market towns or Cities such as York, Durham or Edinburgh. Whatever it may be, we can arrange it.   The Red grouse is only found in the United Kingdom due to the unique heather habitat found here. It has developed in isolation from other sub species of Willow Grouse, which are widespread in northern parts of Eurasia and North America. Early on in the season, Red Grouse fly in their family group or covey, usually eight to twelve in number. Later on in the season, these merge into packs of thirty to fifty (or more!) grouse, on shoot days and nothing matches the adrenaline rush of seeing such a pack hurtling towards you at speeds of over 70mph. The season starts on the “Glorious 12th” (12th August) and runs through to December 10th, although the majority of Moors will have completed their shooting programme towards the end of October or early November.   Grouse shooting is described as the pinnacle of all game shooting available in the United Kingdom and has to be experienced by every Gun. 

Quite literally William Powell Sporting is the number one Sporting Agency in the UK and with more experience of Grouse Shooting than any other agency.

Australian Buffalo Hunters – Classic Safaris

Owner: Graham Williams Australian

“Brian load your 375H&H”, I requested when only halfway to the Buffalo bull he had observed from 800m back.. We had already passed up several like him.. but unknown to the crew, far beyond in thick bush I had glimpsed a large old Bull with huge horns.. Perhaps we had a chance, we just had to get past this medium Bull... And now appearing from no where... 300m across the black soil plain to our left was a group of about 10 cows and calves. They were trying to avoid this bull and head for water, they came trotting straight towards us..!! In a short space of time I could see action happening fast, “get ready to shoot”. Brian was confused. 3 of us now lay low with only a log for cover, and I motioned Brian to lean on that tree and get ready to shoot.. At what..??? He was stunned, a medium Bull perhaps 100m away in thick bush, and Graham almost on the ground and waving instructions... at what...?? Then it happened, the cows galloped straight past us, and the medium Bull in pursuit, and yep from 300m away the huge old Buffalo bull was at full gallop straight at us through the bush... One cow, now to our right, spooked, stopped and looked around, the young bull stopped at 20m and the older Bull skidded to a stop too at 25m, he was huge and turned side on, nose in the air... Shoot I quietly shouted to Brain. Plenty of confusion, Buffalo running towards and around us, hooves, dust and noise.. Now it was clear, right there, no long stalk required. Boom went the Mauser rifle, his head dropped, and Boom again as he regained his feet.. Brain concentrated on his trophy going from 2nd into 3rd gear, and the rest of us made sure we weren’t going to get trampled by the others running all around us. Brian was shooting and blood running down his face, the scope was too close for such a tall man. The Buffalo was down, but as we approached I quickly switched rifles, my loaded 500 Jeffery to Brain, and I spun his 375’s Warne mount QD levers around and off with the scope, then we swapped rifles again. Ok finish him with open sights.. and Brain put in the finishing shot on his big 102point trophy. What an exciting hunt, unbelievable, the observers just as excited. No 2 hunts are the same, always action, and I learn more of Buffalo behavior each season. Central Arnhem Land Wilderness: We specialize in Australia’s best Buffalo hunting with highly productive NLC licensed concessions of 840,000HA (2.5million acres). Large herds of Water Buffalo, some Scrub Bull (wild ox) and occasional Wild Boar. The grassy plains, rolling hills and fertile valleys produce excellent 90-105 SCI Buffalo bulls and some around 50” spread because of the open Savana. The thicker bush on the creeks, rivers and streams offer exciting close up dangerous game action, and we have stopped many close charges. We also offer excellent Banteng hunting at the THS NW Arnhem land concession. Classic Tented Safari Camps are set close to the Buffalo. Canvas tents, bunk beds, canvas bag showers, camp toilets, wood safari chairs and tables, quality meals, a cold beer, excellent Australian wines, smooth whiskeys and ice. Not a luxury Tanzania camp with extra staff. But real hunters will enjoy this old style expedition. Best season: June, July, August. Our aim is real wilderness, real hunting, honest, ethical and professional service. No stations, no ranches, no helicopters, no fences. I am a dedicated Life Member of IPHA, SSAA and SCI, and member of DSC, ADA, SWH&C. Let us plan your Australian wilderness hunt adventure. Safe Hunting, Graham Williams PH.

PACIFIC NEW ZEALAND Owner: Duncan Fraser Manager: Duncan Fraser

Dear Duncan, I hope that this letter finds you well. I wanted to write to you and again express my thanks to you and all of your team for an epic hunting trip in New Zealand. While it is a long trip to get to you guys, it was worth every minute and far exceeded my expectations! I cannot put into words the excitement that we experienced with Cardrona Safaris. New Zealand is truly a special place and I will cherish the memories I had there for the rest of my life. Thank you for the opportunity to share your beautiful part of the country. The scenery was spectacular, the animals beyond description and the people and facilities were world-class. I have had the opportunity to hunt many great places, but none could compare to hunting with Cardrona Safaris! I have spoken to Brett Flaugher many times since the hunt and have told him that I was ruined and that I would never want to hunt New Zealand with anyone else. I still feel the same today! If there is anything I can do for you or help in any way I would welcome the opportunity! I hope that one day in the future I have the opportunity to visit and hunt with you again. My sincere thanks again for a great hunt! Sincerely,

Travis Hall

France Safaris

WildHunting Company

Domaine de Laplanque, managed by France Safaris, is located in the south of France. The property is varied, mountainous and wild.   This estate has acquired an international reputation because of its exceptional and very large trophies of red deer, fallow deer and mouflon sheep.   Roebuck, sika deer and large wild boar can also be hunted here. Hunting is done solely by stalking or from hides.   The estate is reserved exclusively for one hunter, whether accompanied or not.   The Roques-Rogery family, owners of this lovely estate since the 13th century, are delighted to welcome guests to their château with friendliness, all desired comforts and refined French cuisine.  

WildHunting in Turkey is owned and managed by the Ekenler Family and currently run by two brothers, Kürsat and Temir. They are both extremely keen young hunters and have hunted extensively throughout Turkey and abroad.

A superb hunting destination, in very pleasant surroundings, for outstanding trophies!

www.francedafaris.com

The Ekenler family has been landowners in Tarsus, Cukurova area for more than 300 years. Hunting is a family tradition, proudly passed from father to son and finally to us. We have always had a passion for the wild; this has been supported by their father who took Temir and Kürsat with him to many hunts all over the world. With some of the world’s finest species on our doorstep, we have naturally concentrated on big game hunting. WildHunting offers a total of 6 species of big game, which are natively found only on Turkish hunting land, this makes the hunting unique! Our family has controlled the shooting in large areas of the Taurus Mountains for generations. We therefore operate as a private family hunting estate, rather than an agent buying from different concessions all over the region. As a result, we have controlled, conserved and developed our areas in a manner that we believe to be unique in the whole country. This approach is key to our way of maintaining the highest standards in everything we do.

Medstugan Hunting Lodge is located in north-west Jämtland, Sweden, close to the Norwegian border. This incredible building dates from 1896 and was originally intended to provide accommodation for hunters from other continents and for the nobility. Medstugan Hunting Lodge is now the heart of Fjelljakt’s hunting activities. Fjelljakt has been operating for over a decade, with a focus is on moose and grouse. However, it’s not just the hunting and the area’s exceptional game population that makes Fjelljakt unique. The company also offers a gastronomic experience, with the company’s chef selecting regional delicacies to provide the guests with a completely local culinary experience when the hunting day has come to a close. The sommelier carefully chooses the wines to accompany the menu. Fjelljakt hunts grouse in a classic manner, using pointing bird dogs. Hunting takes place in the mountains, in enchantingly beautiful surroundings. Moose hunts are conducted in two ways, driven hunts and hunting with barking moose dogs. The latter is a one-on-one hunt, which is the traditional type of hunting in this area and typical for Scandinavia. The lands at Fjelljakt’s disposal cover 16,500 hectares of roadless country, so it is not unusual for hunters to be transported into this fantastic environment by helicopter, in order to get as far as possible into the terrain. However, the hunts that Fjelljakt offers are physically demanding and guests should be well prepared. Fjelljakt offers you a unique opportunity to hunt in one of the last areas of wilderness in Europe. If you want to experience a tough, challenging hunt in a traditional format, which is guaranteed to give you lasting memories, we would love you to be our guest!

Home to the very best elk hunting in the world and some of the best red deer found anywhere. It is not only the trophy quality that places this hunting area as one of the best in the world but also the experience.

West Highland Hunting provides the most premium hunting experiences available anywhere in Scotland. Utilizing a number of the most spectacular sporting estates together with their traditional cottage or castle accommodation, a hunting trip to Scotland will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable of your life.

The large team working here makes sure that your stay becomes a memorable experience. From one on one guiding to the luxury lodging and the gastronomic experience that our 2 local chefs produce, combining game meat and wild mushrooms from LWE and great local produce from the surrounding area paired with wine that has been chosen by a resident sommelier. All of this experience is second to none. The completely renovated lodge means LWE spares no expense to take the absolute best care of their guests. The rolling hills of dense forest interspersed with meadows and water makes the hunting area a magical place. The vast majority of the hunting is done by stalking but when the weather does not collaborate there are blinds strategically placed throughout the property. The hunting takes place starting from the middle of August and runs through the end of November. Hunters can expect to see a number of mature animals each day and will be guaranteed a number of opportunities at trophy animals. A trophy is a very personal concept unique to each hunter and at LWE there is a wide range in scores from solid representative animals scoring over 350 SCI to the next world record trophy of a lifetime.

One of the main estates West Highland Hunting manages is the world famous and remote Ardnamurchan. Located on the Scottish west coast, Ardnamurchan is a 50 square mile peninsula in Lochaber noted for being completely unspoilt and undisturbed by man. As Britain’s most westerly point nestled among dramatic coastal and mountain scenery, it offers unrivalled sporting opportunities and some of the largest wild red stags in Scotland. West Highland Hunting is run by Head Stalker and Sporting Manager Niall Rowantree who has over 30 years experience as a stalker and deer manager and has managed the Ardnamurchan herd for over 20 years. Niall is well known for welcoming clients and saying goodbye to great friends. Every year clients of West Highland Hunting successfully take many trophy class wild Scottish red stags of SCI record book quality. There are also opportunities to hunt feral goats, roebuck, sika, fallow and the exotic Père David deer. Due to hunting seasons in Scotland, it is possible to stalk at least one species all year round. All of the estates that West Highland Hunting manage are carefully balanced to maintain and enhance biodiversity in accordance with best practice and the deer’s welfare.

Impatient ? Buy your cask share! HOW DOES IT WORKS? You choose a share from a cask. You decide to let it mature for 3 or 5 years. We provide it to you at 46% alcohol by vol. or at cask strength (+/- 70% alcohol by vol.).

HAVE YOU DECIDED? Your share corresponds to either 6 or 12 bottles. You receive a certificate of authenticity that you can exchange at the distillery as from October 2016 if you chose for a 3 years old or starting from October 2018 if you chose for a 5 years old!

ARE THE CASK SHARES SO SPECIAL? Yes, the Belgian Owl is a 100% Belgian Single Malt whisky. The water is drawn from the ground water of Hesbaye, a rich subsoil that has for centuries already allowed for the creation of rich and pure water. The barley is grown by Belgian farmers involved in fair trade and reasoned agriculture. Moreover, the used stills derive from the legendary Scottish ex-distillery of Caperdonich.

1970 Juliette Mengin achète la propriété crée en 1763 par Raymond Lafitte. Elle fut aussitôt séduite par la situation stratégique de la propriété ainsi que sa vue surplombant la vallée de la Garonne. En 1991, son fils Max Mengin repris le Château Lafitte et grace à son expérience internationale il put donner un nouvel essor commercial au vin. Après avoir fini ses études d’oenologie, Philippe Mengin, petit fils de Juliette, passe de nombreuses années à parcourir le monde afin d’aquérir une connaissance appronfondie du commerce des vins à l’export. A ce jour le vin est distribué pour 95% en direct à l’export et pro te d’une réputation reconnue dans le Monde entier. www.chateaulafitte.fr
