The Pyrenees in the southern France offers a terrific mountain hunt for chamois! We have had many hunters on Chamois hunts and there are reports of really good game management, hunting, organization, trophy quality and game populationjs, and when you can also treat yourself to a lot of delicious specialties from French cuisine, this kind of hunting doesn't get much better .
You hunt in the same mountainous areas that mouflons are hunted in. The areas are extremely hilly and require a certain physical fitness to get the best conditions for a successful hunt. We have different areas at our disposal and regardless of whether you are in one area or the other, you are hunting in extremely beautiful mountain terrain in the Pyrenees.
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.
The Chamois in the Pyrenees are typically found some way up in the mountains, and you can expect to hunt at an altitude of 500 meters and up to 2500 meters. The hunting pressure in the various areas is minimal, which can also be seen in the trophies that are taken each year. Only older chamois are shot and the chance for a big one s extremely good.
The best hunting period is during the rut, which extends from mid/late October to end-November.
It is possible to rent a rifle from our French partner. He offers Blaser R8 prof. success in caliber 30.06 with a quality binocular from Zeiss.
The simplest is to fly to Toulouse, and here you can either rent a car or we can organize a transfer to the hunting grounds. We are of course happy to help you book the flight.
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
