Duck hunt in Saxony

22.11.2019

We have been looking for excellent duck hunts in Germany for a long time. Now we have found it - the Döbra pond estate, north-east of Dresden, near Kamenz in the federal state of Saxony.
Staff from our team were on site and checked everything thoroughly. Of course we didn't want to miss the chance for a good mallard shooting. The result: . . . simply fantastic! 

What was everyday life for our ancients is difficult to realize today. Namely good waterfowl hunts. It takes a lot of passion and enthusiasm on the part of the owner, because the preserve of mallards is a science in itself. There are two prerequisites for a successful hunt: hunting predators and peace and quiet on the hunting ground!

The management and cultivation of the ponds takes a lot of time and is very cost-intensive. The water surfaces must be kept free, but at the same time it must be ensured that there is sufficient cover for all waterfowl.

This belongs in the hands of experts and the owner of the Döbra pond estate is known for this far beyond Saxony's borders. His word has weight and even the most experienced waterfowl hunters can still learn something from him.
Call us and inquire about this duck hunt. The places are very limited and in great demand every year.

 

Informations about mallards (Anas Platyrhynchos)

The mallard is a very widespread species of dabbling ducks in Eurasia and the primeval form of the domestic ducks. They can reach wing spans of up to 95 cm and a body length of up to 58 cm. Except on approximately two months (July/August), the drakes wear their distinctive splendid dress. The glossy green head with the white neck ring and the yellow beak makes them unmistakable.

During the moult, the drake wears a brown-gray speckled plumage with metallic blue speculum and looks very similar to the duck. Only the dark beak of the females and the yellow beak of the drake helps with the distinction.

Mallards are extremely adaptable and occur almost everywhere, where there are waters. They can even be found in densely populated cities. They have very different migratory patterns in different regions. While the ducks in the northern areas move to warmer regions in winter, the ducks in the southern areas are territory-loyal. The distances of the miration can vary greatly.

Mallards fly fast and straight and they can rise almost vertically.
