Excellent Mountain Hunting for Chamois, with the Possibility of Combining the Hunt with Red Deer and Mouflon
4 days from €3,445
The Pyrenees Mountains in the very south of France not only offer great mountain hunting for chamois, but often also the possibility of combining this hunt with red deer and mouflon. We can certainly recommend the game management, hunt guiding, organisation, trophy quality and game populations here, and given that you can pamper yourself with some of the many delicacies from the French cuisine, a hunting trip does not get much better.
For number of years we have had the pleasure of offering hunting for chamois, mouflon, red deer and roebuck in some fantastic districts the regions of Gers, Haute Pyrenee, Pyrenee Atlantique and the Pyrenees Oriantales on the French side of the mountains. Our experience has shown that the game populations, trophy quality and hunt organisation is all of a very high standard. The Pyrenean chamois, or as it is known in France - the Isard, can be hunted on both the French and Spanish sides of the mountains, but it is significantly cheaper to do so in France.
This is an extremely charming part of France, and even any non-hunters in your family will find lots of exciting attractions here. In addition to the hunting there is plenty of interest to see in this part of France. Where the country is at its “narrowest”, it is only about 200km between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. There are many exciting old towns and castles, such as the city of Toulouse, the famous pilgrimage center of Lourdes, the historic town of Pau and the tiny country of Andorra close by. Finally, sampling the local foods and wines produced in this region is worth a trip in itself. If you would like to spend a few more days here exploring this part of France, especially if you are bringing the family along, we recommend that you rent a car here.
It is possible for 2-3 hunters to hunt at the same time. The French guides are experienced but do not expect that they speak any other language than French. The outfitter speaks English.
During your hunt you will stay in a small hotel/guest house close to the hunting district. We use a number of different establishments, but generally speaking they are all very charming, often in equipped with modern facilities such as delightful rooms, with private bath and toilet, common sitting areas, wifi, and some even have a swimming pool. Do not expect to loose weight here. Normally...Read more
