4 days from €1,395
France has a very strong population of red deers and from mid-September many French forests are full of rutting stags, one of nature's most fantastic "shows". At this time of the year, the big stags are coming out of the forest thickets.
Our partner in France has different territories in the Pyrenees, and you can expect a fantastically exciting and challenging hunt in the mountains. The areas are very varied and the variety of the biotope makes these areas the ideal habitat for red deers.
There is everything from dense forests, open areas, beautiful mountain meadows, high plains, a little agriculture and larger grazing areas. The Pyrenees is therefore the place if you want to experience exciting red stag hunting in a unique terrain!
Besides hunting, it is also an interesting area of France. Here, where the country is "narrowest", there are only approx. 200 km to both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. There are many interesting old towns and castles, e.g. Toulouse, famous Lourdes as well as Pau, and the tiny country of Andorra are also close by. And not least, the wonderful food and good wines alone are worth a trip. Also for any non-hunting part of the family, this will be a very attractive destination as there are many attractions and plenty of activity opportunities.
The red stags in the Pyrenees are very similar to the Spanish red stags, only the price is significantly cheaper. You can expect to shoot stags weighing between 4 - 7 kg in trophy weight, 8 - 12 points and with an age of at least 7 years. The guides are very selective and the red stags are chosen wisely. On these hunts, it's quality over quantity!
Hunting period (20 September - 15 October)
The best period for red stag hunting is from the end of September to mid-October, when the stags are iruttingt. Here there are good opportunities to experience the intense rut, where the stags roar and fight over the obstacles. It is something every hunter should try to experience.
It is possible to rent a rifle from our French partner, who has Blaser R8 prof. success in caliber 30.06 with a quality scope from Zeiss.
The simplest is to fly to Toulouse, and here you can either rent a car or we can organize transfer to the hunting grounds. We are of course happy to help you book the flight.
During the hunt, in most cases, our hunters will stay in a small but very charming guesthouse/hotel/pension, either in a small mountain village or out in the countryside. Generally speaking or hunters have been very enthusiastic about the choice of accommodation, which is often a carefully restored building, several centuries old, which has been transformed into a comfortable, tastefully...Read more
