Foreword of the founder Are we dinosaurs? Are we, hunters and fishermen, the last generations of a species which is doomed to disappear from the face of the earth? Our American friends are certainly the masters in statistics and based on their numbers both hunters and fishermen are declining dramatically. We are with an estimated 258 million fishermen of whom 38 million are commercial and the rest recreational. We also seem to be with 52 million hunters of which 28 million just in the United States. But this last number is the relevant one! Only two decades ago the USA counted still over 40 million hunters. Apparently nowadays for every 100 hunters retiring from active duty only 69 new young hunters are added. I do not know any numbers for the old continent, but with the legislation getting every day more restrictive, I am convinced the loss is even greater!

Same is happening to the much larger fishing community where a certain lobby uses isolated cases of over-fishing to make any recreational fisherman feel bad. A few years back Safari Club International demonstrated that the hunters were the largest group of conservationists, both in numbers as by dollars invested. The anglers from their side started to promote heavily the catch and release practice and they achieved a significant turnaround. So who do our youngsters have to believe? Statistics show they do not believe us, the sportsmen! Last year I urged all parents to involve their children in the outdoors sports such as fishing and hunting as part of their education to integrate into the natural environment. Today numbers prove we are at the losing end. We must put greater effort in communicating those values to the next generations if we do not want to end up becoming the last specimen of a dying breed‌ Bruno van Marcke

Unique in Europe, Sabournac is a private hunting estate that has been organising mallard shoots over the last twenty years or so on the principles of the large “English style shoots”. This type of hunting surprises and appeals to many hunters, who like shooting a few hundred cartridges on high-flying mallards. The birds fly over surprisingly high, which challenges top-shooters to equip themselves with full-choke guns. The estate is open from September 1st to January 31st and may be reserved by a single group of 4 to 12 guns.

A bolt-action rifle created in the finest tradition of craftsmanship with an outstanding range of offerings – all settled around the innovative Helix bolt action system. The name is Helix Noblesse and it offers real linear bolt action. Safer thanks to the unique Helix breech and the closed receiver. Faster thanks to bolt action shooting with a conversion of linear movement into a helical rotation. The highest level of precision – even after toolless takedowns or changing the calibre. Now with a selected wood class 7 with a True-Oil finish, ebony onlays, a fluted barrel and a gold trigger. We believe that this Helix is (apart from love for nature) one of the best reasons to pursue the hunt.

Niels van Rooyen considered in the past. This was especially important for our destinations, Holland & Holland

since they are so diverse. For example, perhaps you are a passionate bonefish angler-but didn’t know anything about the golden dorado in Argentina?

The same is true with wingshooting, many lifelong waterfowl hunters didn’t realize you could hunt ducks in June and July…but in these pages they discovered the idea of duck hunting in Argentina, and that opened a new chapter for many wing shooters. We value our partnership with Laurent and Magic Safari Lodges, and we support them in everything they do to enhance and vigorously defend the sporting destinations they represent and showcase. We look forward to many more years of working with Magic Safari Lodges, and hope you enjoy your opportunity to discover some new opportunities and destinations between these covers. Sincerely,

If you like bonefish, you’ll love Dorado, and many anglers, through exposure in these pages, have “crossed over” and discovered a new passion for the golden fish of South America.

Leica Sport Optics. For most demanding situations. Stalking in the mountains is perhaps the most demanding among all the different ways of hunting. To be successful harvesting a dreamed trophy reaching perfection is a must. After 18 years of professional hunting I have learnt that using the best optic equipment is what makes a difference achieving that dream. I always offer my clients a top hunting experience and never leave anything to chance, that’s why I rely on Leica optics to reach that goal. The Magnus rifle scopes series together with the new Geovid HD-B42 are the most precise, durable and reliable tool I can offer our hunters to ensure a successful and safe hunt.

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

Wild Hunting Company >>

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. 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.

Algar Safaris >>

Patagonia, it’s a country in itself... Algar Safaris owns two private hunting properties that cover 85,000 acres (35,000 hectares) of pristine Patagonian steppe country. The hilly terrain and breathtaking views make Algar Safaris an excellent place to hunt for the various species we offer. The captivating surroundings and the wilderness of the country provide the most demanding and experienced hunters with a once-in-a-lifetime hunting experience. We are located in the southern part of the Province of Neuquén, with paved road access from the airport in the beautiful city of San Carlos de Bariloche (two-hour drive). We recommend doing our hunts on horseback; however, for those who prefer or require it, hunting can also be done with 4WD vehicle. We encourage bow hunters to hunt with us; great trophies can also be taken with bow & arrow. We offer premium hunting, two new first-class lodges, gourmet cuisine, as well as the unforgettable experience of having a midday “asado” (barbecue) right in the middle of the hunting grounds.

The safaris take place in the best hunting area for Western antelopes in all Cameroon.

Daggaboy Hunting Safaris Namibia Although based in Namibia, Daggaboy Hunting Safaris offers hunts in the rest of Africa as well, particularly for returning clients who are looking for those special trophies that do not occur in Namibia. 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.

Owner: Dawid Muller Manager: Dawid Muller

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.

Ekland Safaris South Africa Ekland Safaris is an exclusive property in the heart of South Africa’s Northern Province. Its location alone is enough to bring the dream of hunting alive, housing within its boundaries at least 20 species of mammal including white rhino, cape buffalo, elephant, lion and giraffe, as well as a wide array of antelopes indigenous to the area. However, Ekland Safaris is not simply a hunting delight. Rather, it’s a whole world of sensations spread out across its 35,000 acres: a place that stimulates the senses and proclaims the beauty of the African landscape through its own awakening. The development of a dreamlike camp was inspired not only by the natural beauty that embraces this concept, but also by a clear understanding of the symbiosis between an adventurous spirit and the inclination for comfort and luxury of a group of selected individuals that look for a personal reward in each experience. The estate offers many forms of enjoyment, and can accommodate every individual, hunters and non-hunters alike. It’s a unique experience for the whole family.

Hunt & Fish Namibia 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 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 fly-camps in a moonlike environment.

www.huntandfishnamibia.com

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. Affiliations:

Hunt & Fish Namibia Namibia 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 fivestar 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. A few hours westward, we have our Namib desert property, which again is a totally different view from the Kalahari. Montana-like 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.

Hunt & Fish Namibia Namibia 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.

Pro Safaris Africa has the exclusive rights to for this magnificent area. With 45 km of Zambezi frontage on the west and north, and safari areas bordering on the east and south, Rifa Safari Area is surrounded by wilderness areas, and is secluded from any human encroachment. Everyone dreams of hunting Africa’s Big Five. Of these, the Cape Buffalo must be the most sought-after trophy of them all. Hunting them by tracking is the only true way to hunt. Hunting Cape Buffalo needs to be incorporated in a true African Safari with its vast areas and wide variety of dangerous game. The area is perhaps best known for its cats. Leopard are abundant and can only be hunted during daylight hours, making this more interesting and giving it the work that it deserves. Two of the top 10 lion ever taken in Africa have been taken in this area, making this the number 1 area for lion in Zimbabwe. Elephant hunting is perhaps the most physical hunt that one can ask for. Elephant is hunted on foot. Whether it’s trophy bulls, which can be anywhere between 40 lbs and 70 lbs per side, or the notorious tuskless elephant that you’re after, Rifa is the safari area that truly has it all!

Hippo are abundant in the Zambezi River and is a unique hunt that takes you away from the everyday tracking of the Cape Buffalo. Keeping in mind that they kill more people in Africa than any other animal, one has to show them the respect they deserve.

Hunting begins either on foot or by jeep. However, when fresh tracks or animals are spotted, stalking on foot presents an exciting challenge. Riffle, shotgun, pistol or bow may be used. When an animal is shot it is immediately transported to the camp to be skinned and treated in preparation for the trophy. For avid trophy hunters there is a void in certain African Animal species. Rhinoland has filled that gap my making available the much sought after trophies of White Rhino, Blesbok, Waterbuck, Zebra, Nyala, Kudu, Gemsbok, Warthog, Sable Antelope, Impala, land and many others. The farm is not only known for its picture or hunter safaris, but also for its fishing opportunities. Rhinoland conducts safaris throughout the year depending on your particular requirements. Over 30 species of game are available including those that are only obtainable in South Africa.

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 vintage 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.

Jacana Lodge Lincoln, Buenos Aires, Argentina Duck Hunting We designed Jacana to mirror the greatest duck clubs in North America. Then added a lot more ducks. An Argentine duck-hunting experience at an authentic, yet luxurious, estancia. Jacana Lodge, located outside Buenos Aires near Lincoln, was envisioned by passionate duck hunters who asked, “What if we built the best duck hunt ever?” And then did it. At Jacana, exceptional duck hunting is a season-long focus, where we hunt ducks twice daily, over decoys, from dry blinds. To say that the shooting is productive is trite. It’s exciting, it’s unique, it’s a North American duck hunt x10-every day.  Aside from thirteen unique species of ducks, the lodge is a home away from home, with stylish living spaces, and excellent food and wine. Duck shooting at Jacana features comfortable and well camouflaged dry blinds, quality species-specific decoys and all the boats, vehicles, and trucks to get you to where the ducks are each day.

Morning hunts depart the lodge in the dark, but after a hearty breakfast-with everything from waffles to eggs Benedict made to order. Drive times vary depending on water conditions, but range from 10 to 45 minutes, max. Hunters are placed in dry blinds, or large dry, sunken “buckets� also known as pit blinds. Platform pallet-blinds are also used. Shooting over decoys starts at first light and continues until 10 AM or later. Most days, duck hunters return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon departures for evening duck hunts. Evening hunts last until dark.

La Dormida Córdoba, Argentina Dove shooting We set out to build the finest dove shooting lodge imaginable. Come and tell us if we got it right. With over 250.000 acres in our control, we are always under the doves, and we can customize shooting scenarios any hour, any day, year round. It’s not fair to play favorites. But while we love all our lodges, clients often tell us La Dormida is theirs. Maybe it’s the dusk-to-dawn dove flights, where birds cross the landscape daily—in waves measured in miles. Or perhaps it’s short drives to the rolling hills. Or the opulent field lunches served under the shade of canvas. It might also be the lodge itself, which is a near perfect manifestation of a sporting retreat-built from the ground up to accommodate only dove shooters. Or it could be the meals-dinners and desserts that guests often photograph with their phones. It could be that, too. Whatever it is, you ought to see it for yourself. The best dove shooting in the world coupled with the finest accommodations. Ideal for private parties looking for a top-shelf shooting holiday.

The Shooting Cordoba is considered the dove shooting capital of the world. The 100 square mile radius (160 km) around the lodge sees more than 50 million doves annually. The lodge has access to 55 shooting fields all within a short drive through the region’s rolling farmland. Your day starts at 8 AM with a hearty breakfast followed by a short drive to the shooting. In the field you’ll be assigned a “pick-up” boy, who will provide non-stop shells and refreshments and direct you to your shooting stand. Our head guide will also be on hand to assist and offer tips if required. Typically, you’ll shoot till noon then break for an incredible asado-style lunch, featuring Argentina’s wonderful beef and superb wines. Afternoon shooting continues until almost dark. There is no “quitting time”-good sense and tired shooters dictate when the day is through. Return to the lodge for cocktails and an early dinner. *Each day the lodge donates hundreds of doves to a local food kitchen that serves impoverished children in the area.

Upon arriving at the field you’ll hunt from double blinds, or large sunken “buckets” similar to individual pit blinds. Platform pallet-blinds are also used.

Typically, you’ll return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon sessions commence. Afternoon programs vary. Hunters can target perdiz in the rich pastures near the lodge. Other days, you’ll double-up on duck hunting. When available, wild pigeon over decoys or low volume dove shooting round out the options.

Montaraz Lodge Córdoba, Argentina Pigeon Hunting The most exclusive pigeon shooting lodge in Córdoba. Personalized services and intimate attention to every detail make this pigeon shooting program unbeatable. We’ve always said there is sport; and then there is sport done right. At Montaraz, pigeon hunting takes place the way it is supposed to, with blinds and decoys and skilled scouting endeavors to ensure success. But doing it right doesn’t mean stuffy. This is hot-barrel pigeon shooting-and you’d better be ready for it. After the smoke settles you have Montaraz itself, a 17th century estancia and vineyard, with meals right off the pages of a gourmet magazine. The combination will satiate all comers. The world’s most experienced guns rank wild pigeons among wingshooting’s greatest challenges. And when you’ve shot them well over decoys, you’ve done everything right. The Shooting Decoyed pigeon hunts are the specialty at Montaraz, and the surrounding are of Cordoba is considered one of the best pigeon shooting regions in South America. The 50 square mile (80 km) area around the lodge sees more than 5 million pigeons annually. The lodge has access to 60 shooting fields.

Your daily program generally starts at 8 AM, with a hearty breakfast followed by a short drive to the field. In the field you will be assigned a blind and a bird-boy, who provides non-stop shells and refreshments. Throughout the shooting session, you’ll be under the watchful eye of your guide, who’s available to assist you and provide instruction. Depending on the season, you’ll shoot till noon and then break for an asado-style lunch at the lodge, sampling Argentina’s wonderful beef and exclusive wines. Afternoon sessions continue until 5 or 6 PM. Return to the lodge for cocktails in the wine cellar followed by dinner. *Wild pigeons are both large and fast, which make calculating their speed and lead a bit deceptive. Pigeons are also wary birds, and there is an element of technique involved that calls for shooting closer to decoying ducks than with doves. Staying hidden and still in a good blind is the key to success. Our field staff is familiar with the ways of the wild pigeon, and they’ll build fresh blinds and deploy decoys in the correct fashion to suit the situation.

San Pedro Lodge Paysandú, Uruguay Mixed-Bag *The most exciting game birds in Uruguay. Perdiz hunts over staunch English Setters, ducks over decoys, and doves. Plus the same top level of service and shooting you’d expect from David Denies. The first time visitor to Uruguay often expects the dreamy, uber-rural setting of a genteel ranch home in the countryside. The countryfield setting of Uruguay’s plains suggest dormers and gingerbread trims. But in San Pedro the angles, and levels and modern exterior belie the comforts that lie within. In addition to the modern finery of the lodge, shooting guests will appreciate that San Pedro is located near a vast network of lagoons and rivers surrounded by agriculture. This creates excellent conditions for resident and migrating ducks, while acre upon acre of short pasture fields offer perfect perdiz habitat. You’ll also find quick access to both sides of the biggest dove roosts in Uruguay. *Like vegetable soup in a silver bowl, San Pedro offers the best ingredients in an elegant presentation.

Château Saint Michel 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 Saint Michel property, in the Nièvre department, located between Beaune and Saint-Honoré-les-Bains, will welcome you to its magnificent park. You will stay in a fully renovated castle with all the comfort of a five-star hotel. Everything is done to perfection, be it the rooms or the meals. 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. 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. 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.

“When they say that first impressions last then we can say that this experience was achieved at Laplanque”; “exceptional trophies”; “a home away from home”; “their hospitality is unparalleled”; “what a wonderful team”; “incredible family Château with beautiful interiors and exteriors”; “a very fair chase hunt”. These are just a few examples of our favourite extracts from the Laplanque hunting estate’s visitors’ book, written by hunters who have stayed with us and left entirely satisfied. The Laplanque Hunting Estate is located in the south of France (an hour and a half from Toulouse Blagnac airport) at an altitude of 600 meters (1,950 feet) in a magnificent, unspoiled rural region rich in traditions, gastronomy and surrounded by charming villages that we are delighted to help our guests discover. Château de Laplanque has been in the Roques family since the 13th century and has been lovingly maintained ever since. The Château offers many comfortable reception rooms and bedrooms filled with original furnishings, all in a pleasant homelike environment. The fully fenced 350-hectare (860-acre) estate has always been dedicated to hunting. The terrain is rough, the environment wild and the biotope highly varied. Our grassland areas alternate pine, chestnut and holly with birch forests and heather-covered cliffs which all combine to make for difficult and exciting hunting.

TROPHY HUNTING FOR MOOSE Our most exclusive hunting product is one-on-one hunting with a barking moose dog. This type of hunting is suitable for people who dream of shooting the “big bull”. You and a tracker/dog handler hunt alone over large areas, waiting for the dog to find the 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 success. 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 moutain terrain. GAME BIRD HUNTING We offer ptarmigan hunts using pointing bird dogs. Hunting takes place on the open mountainsides or in the neighbouring 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.

Spain offers the opportunity to hunt 14 big game species most of them native to our country and is a unique destination for mountain hunting enthusiasts, with 7 Capra species (four subspecies of Spanish ibex: Beceite, Gredos, Southeastern and Ronda ibex, two species of chamois: Pyrenean and Cantabrian and the Mallorcan goat) and two members of the Ovis genus: Barbary sheep and mouflon. Also we have three beautiful deers (Spanish red deer, European roe deer and European Fallow deer), wild boar and iberian wolf. In addition, its permanently sunny and warm climate allows for year-round hunting without suffering the rigours of the bad weather found at other destinations.  We operate in the prime hunting regions in the country, in private and national hunting reserves, specializing in large trophy hunting.    “Monteria” or driven hunting is the oldest and most traditional form of hunting in Spain. This type of hunting includes drives for deer, wild boar, fallow deer  and mouflon and is unique thanks to its color, beauty and excitement with large parties of hunters, hounds and mounts. Our driven hunts or “monterias” are world-class. They usually feature 5 to 25 stands offering 2 to 3 trophies per person per day.

Great Spanish Hunts Spain  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.  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. 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. A pair of 12 and 20 bore double-barrel matched shot guns is ideal for this type of shoot. We work closely with top gun manufacturers to offer you the best quality guns on-site, therefore avoiding the inconvenience of travelling with them.

“Hunting, Big Game Fishing, Freshwater fishing, Golf, Horse Riding” The Estate welcomes visitors for the hunting season, approximately six months of the year from September to the end of February. Wild boar is the big game here and is hunted in the traditional beating method, with a pack of hounds and beaters, or from a hide early in the season. Small game, like partridge, pheasant and hare live on the grounds, which are also a choice landing spot for migratory birds such as thrush, woodcock, doves and ducks, depending on the season. Fishing for the Most Avid Sportsman At the Murtoli Estate, fishermen can also pursue their passion, with fishing opportunities many sportsmen only dream of. In May and June, coastal net fishing is offered for tuna, such as amberjack, leerfish and “domti.” Those who prefer line fishing can catch sizable “pajots,” sargo bream and sand steenbras, which can be grilled for a tasty meal, or like “dentis” are used as bait for deeper sea fishing. On the coast, there are spear fishing or surf casting excursions for catching sea bream or sea bass.

Les Colverts de Sabournac France “Unique in Europe, Sabournac is a private estate which has been organizing mallard duck hunting for 25 years in the tradition of the great English driven shoots. This hunt both surprises and appeals hunters who like to shoot several hundred cartridges at high flying mallards. These birds fly at surprising heights, which means that only tightly choked guns are used. With new accommodations in the estate to settle more teals, you should have still more opportunities to shoot some of these diabolic birds. Sabournac offers only high quality, exclusive hunting organized and customized to meet your specific demands. The hunting estate is open from September 1 to January 31 and can be booked for a single party of 2 to 8 specially skillful hunters. As a “Browning Partner Lodges”, several guns such as the A5, the Maxus, the Cynergy, the B525 and the B725, are available on the estate. This free service provides an opportunity to shoot with top-quality 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. Also depending of our stock you can test free the new Winchester “Blind Side” cartridges. The estate is 60 km East from Toulouse International Airport with direct flights from most European capitals and 25 km from Castres-Mazamet airport where all private planes can land.  At 3 km of Sabournac, you can stay at a private house (max 5 hunters) or fairly close you can stay at the “Chateau de la Pomarede”, renowned for its delicate and creative cuisine (1 star Michelin).  Sabournac is located at the center of the Toulouse-Carcassonne-Albi triangle. Many daily excursions can be organized including a visit to Andorra (fishing, heli-skiing, shopping…) or wild boars hunting.”

Scandinavian Prohunters Sweden Scandinavian Prohunters is arranging hunts throughout Sweden for a variety of species. We are proud to say we have access to the best, professionally managed areas. Sweden is a large country with a huge diversity of game, offering great hunting as well as beautiful scenery. In the soft agricultural country of southern Sweden we offer hunts for Roebuck, Moose, Red deer, Fallow deer, Wild boar, Ducks and Geese. These hunts also feature great accommodations, making it a perfect hunting holiday. For those that prefer the wilderness and a more rugged hunt, we can arrange a hunt in northern Sweden for Moose and Capercaille. In our neighboring country of Norway we offer hunts for European Rein deer and in Denmark Red deer, Fallow deer, Sika deer and driven Pheasants. There is a great variety of species that can be combined, so the choice is yours. Sweden is rich in history, great sightseeing, and of course, wonderful shopping for the non-hunters. The hunting, sightseeing, and shopping opportunities all feature great accommodations, which can even be upgraded to a Castle, or old Manor houses. Most couples choose to stay after the hunt to explore the country on their own. The infrastructure of Sweden is first class, and crime is virtually non-existent---AND, everyone speaks English, making it much easier to travel. Moose Hunting: Traditional Swedish moose hunting with a Moose Dog is a great experience. After locating the moose, the dog will hold the animal at bay until the hunter arrives. This is a hunt for people who appreciate a true “Fair Chase� hunt. You can choose to hunt one-on-one, or hunt in a group.

Soto Real Andalucia, Spain 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”.

Spain

Owner: Classified Manager: Guy van Onsem

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

Soto Real Andalucia, Spain 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 beautycenter, 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.

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 2) Anatolian Konya Sheep 3) Anatolian Chamois 4) Anatolian Red Deer        5) Anatolian Urfa Gazelle      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

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.

Australian Buffalo Hunters Australia Australian Buffalo Hunters – Classic Safaris Australia’s No 1 Buffalo Hunting. Every hunter in 2013 said this is awesome, some said it’s the world’s best kept secret…. where else can you hunt on foot and see up to a hundred Water Buffalo each day, sometimes more. Andy Zacharias of Texas did a drive through 2 adjoining concessions and we counted 427 Buffalo..!! These numbers give you the opportunity to pass up great trophies until you get exactly what you are after… plus many hunters shoot 2 or 3 trophy Buffalo, or more. Australia’s No 1 Banteng Hunting The only place in the world to legally hunt wild Banteng, a beautiful and tough animal. Our Banteng hunts are conducted in northern Arnhem land on Australia’s best NLC licensed area, with the largest numbers, and thus plenty of monster Bulls.. Previously hunters have had to shoot the first mature Banteng bull they saw.. yet with us you can observe many Bulls until taking an excellent large old Banteng trophy. Dangerous Game Hunting At Its Best Every year I see amazing things in the wild, this year a hunter stopped a charge when following up a wounded bull, another bull was protecting it and charged over the ridge, his 416 Rigby solid went through the nose into the brain and saved them. I also saw a wide old bull charge a large wounded Bull and smash him 3 times and broke its back… unbelievable power in these animals. Definitely a 375 H&H bullet must be well placed, and better still are the hard hitting 416, 404, 458, 470 and 500 calibers.

Treetops Lodge and Wilderness Experience New Zealand The first fingers of fire light up the grey eastern sky. Over the 1,000 hectare expanse of the Treetops Estate, skeins of mist roll away with the approaching dawn. The moan of a rutting stag pierces the chill morning air. Silhouetted on a vantage point, you can see him, one of the magnificent trophy animals that draw sports enthusiasts to Treetops from around the globe. A little later the sun has warmed the air and the mist has cleared. As you set off, gun broken over your arm, you’ve scarcely walked for five minutes before the dogs suddenly point and the cover explodes as two monster pheasants leap into the air. Red deer and pheasant are only two of the many game species that flourish in New Zealand’s premier sports trophy reserve. Wapiti (elk),red, sika, sambar, rusa and fallow deer are all managed on the estate along with one of New Zealand’s finest herds of wild rams and wild boar. There is also a healthy population of duck, for whom no less than six wetlands, ranging in size from 0.6 to 2.5 hectares, have been created over the last fifteen years. Many guests who have achieved a prize red stag trophy swap their rifle for a trout rod and head for one of Treetops’ several ponds. Set amongst one of New Zealand’s finest rainbow and brown trout fishing regions, Treetops offers anglers fishing right in its own 1,000 hectares of private land. The clear, cold highly oxygenated waters of its spring fed streams nourish a population of rainbow, brook and brown trout.

Owner: Alma & John Sax Estate Manager: Dave Robinson

Treetops also offers anglers daily guided fishing ventures, whether it be by 4WD or helicopter into some of the country’s most beautiful native forest streams and lakes, for which the region is world renown. The highly successful development of Treetops as a premier sports destination has been based on a commitment to good game management, says owner John Sax. “We recognized early on that game management is effectively eco management, and that it necessitates the implementation of a conservation policy and a sustainable harvest regime. Good game management looks at what can be put back in to the environment. The never ending question is ‘how can we make this environment better for man and wildlife for a better tomorrow?’” The lush look of the property is also the result of years of effort, including planting of over 70,000 trees. “One of the key factors affecting the sustainability of wild life is the timing, quality and quantity of the food supply” says Sax. “You can’t sustain a population if the total feed supply is only there for a couple of months a year.” Working in close co-operation with government and private agencies, the Estate was planted in a range of crops preferred by game species to provide continuous year round feed. Quick growing and maturing species like shadbash, chokeberries and catoniastas initially held the fort. After 15 years, longer term planting such as oaks, cherries and elders are now maturing.

Treetops Lodge and Wilderness Experience New Zealand Pockets of virgin native bush throughout the estate, including some spectacular stands of tawa trees, have been carefully preserved. Care has also been taken to retain cover and food sources favoured by protected native species such as the kereru (native pigeon) and fern bird. Undesirables like possums, ferrets, rats, cats and rabbits are kept out of the estate by an ongoing trapping and hunting programme carried out by the Estate staff. Inside the estate, deer are eco managed by offering them crops like red clover and swedes, which they much prefer to native forest vegetation. Wild pigs are controlled using a similar strategy. And yes, wild venison and pork appear regularly on the Treetops menu. The temperate climate of northern New Zealand has also helped Treetops produce some of the finest trophies in the world, says John Sax. “the lush vegetation growth found at Treetops is one of the key factors in the growth of many of our large stags. The habitat at Treetops is arguably New Zealand’s finest and has also ensured that it has one of the highest deer densities of any reserve in New Zealand and thus a wide range of animals to choose from. Treetops has the enviable record of having achieved a 100% success rate to date in successfully guiding clients to a trophy stag of their choosing�.

Owner: Alma & John Sax Estate Manager: Dave Robinson

“We are also proud of the fact that all red stags taken at Treetops are of SCI record book quality. Most of our clients are seeking a good representative quality stag which is typically 20+ points and approximately 40 inches or so in length. The majority of animals harvested score at least 320 SCI but each year we guide hunters onto Gold Medal, Diamond and Diamond ++ of 450 SCI plus. Due to the geographic location of Treetops in a tranquil, secluded valley, hunting conditions remain comfortable throughout the season, which runs from the rut in late March until the end of August� for most deer species and continues on until late October for Rusa and into early December for Samba. Treetops offers a selection of personalised packages for discerning hunters with the benefit of exclusive use of our hunting Estate. There is also the option for tahr and chamois alpine hunts in the Southern Alps.

Vancouver Island Hunts Canada

Spring and Fall Hunts on Vancouver Island: Spot-and-stalk hunts for Black Bear and Roosevelt Elk   Our 7800 square kilometer exclusive hunting territory is located along the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island.  The area has over 50 grizzly-free salmon river valleys where the Black Bear feed in the Fall.  The Black Bear hunting here is unsurpassed due to superior genetics and the densest populations of Black Bear per square kilometer of anywhere in North America.  There are no other locations that have better success rates, sizes or ages of bears harvested. Vancouver Island is also well-known as the premier destination for pure Roosevelt Elk.  We consistently produce record book bulls. We also offer Coastal Wolf as an add-on animal for a trophy fee on early Spring Black bear hunts, as well as Sitka Deer on the Fall hunts. A second Black Bear may be taken on a trophy fee basis.   We limit the number of hunters we book to ensure that every hunter has the best possible hunting experience.  On the Spring Black Bear hunts we prefer to book just two hunters per hunt date who will take two bears each, but we will take a maximum of four hunters per hunt date if requested.  In the Fall we only take one or two hunters per hunt date.  Roosevelt Elk hunts are limited to two hunters per season.


Canada

Owner & Manager : Lorna and Eric Mikkelson

We use a combination of custom-designed boats and quads to access the many beaches and logging roads within our guide territory.  Camp accommodations may be provided in either our live-aboard boat or a rustic log cabin lodge, or some combination of both, depending on where we are hunting.   It is this combination of excellent equipment, comfortable camps, superior animals and professional services that enables us to maximize our hunters’ opportunities while providing a true wilderness hunting experience.   Seasons:  5 day 1:1 hunts for Spring Black Bear, Coastal Wolf - April 1- May 20                                      10 day 1:1 hunts for Roosevelt Elk, Sitka Deer - October 10 - 20                                       5 day 1:1 hunts for Fall Black Bear, Sitka Deer - October 21- November 5   To Get Here:  Clients fly into Vancouver International the day before the hunt starts and then take a 30 minute commuter flight over to Comox Airport on Vancouver Island.  We pick clients up at Comox Airport and take them to a hotel for the night.  The next morning we drive them to the hunting area on the west coast of the Island to begin the hunt.  Alternatively, clients may choose to rent a vehicle at Vancouver International and take the ferry service across to Vancouver Island.
