Through our well known French partner in Mauritius we have gained access to an exciting NEW hunting district in the Haute Garonne region, on the French side of the Pyrenean Mountains. Our partner previous worked in this district himself, both as a guide and as a gamekeeper, and can warmly recommend both the organisation and numbers of game here. During the year we have had a number of hunters in the area and the were all very pleased with all aspects of their hunt.

The district lies in a beautiful, fertile and very varied landscape, with rolling hills, forest, meadow and some arable crops. The district is a 1.5 hour drive south east of Toulouse. Roebuck hunting pressure is very limited, and there is a good chance of shooting a large, mature buck.
In addition to the roebuck hunting the Haute Garonne is also a very interesting part of France. It is the “narrowest” part of the country, with only 200km separating the Atlantic Ocean from the Mediterranean Sea. There are many fascinating historic towns and castles, including Toulouse, the famous pilgrimage destination Lourdes and Pau. The tiny country of Andorra is also close by. The local cuisine and wine are worth the journey alone. All of this makes the destination also very attractive for the non-hunting members of the family.
The optimal period to hunt roebuck here is in June, July and up to 10th August,
however in September it is possible to combine a roebuck hunt with hunting red stag, or on another district, for chamois. This second district is around a drive of 1.5 hours away.
It is possible for 3 - 4 hunters to hunt here at the same time, and you can choose to hunt 1:1 or 2:1. The hunt is a mix of lying in wait and stalking. The French hunting guides are very experienced, but you should not expect them to speak any language other than French. But as in so many other hunting destinations, you will find that hunters have their own special international “language”. The outfitter speaks good English speaks good English, and he will also guide most of our hunters.
During the hunt you will stay in a small hotel/pension close to the hunting district.
The easiest way to get here is to fly to Toulouse. From there you can either take a rental car or we can arrange transfers to the hunting district. We can naturally help with arranging flights.
If you would like to spend a few more days in this part of France, or perhaps bring along the family, we would recommend that you hire a car.
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
