Red deer

France

Red deer hunts in the low mountain ranges of the Pyrenees. This is a hunt that we would like to introduce to you at this point. We dealt intensively with the responsible hunting directors of this region and were surprised what the French hunters told us about the red deer hunts.

Informations about red deer (cervus elaphus)

The red deer is a widespread species of the real deer. The main distribution areas spread over much of Europe, and it has also been successfully reintroduced in some areas of South and North America, as well as in New Zealand. Due to the high adaptability of this species, red deer can be found in many different habitats. In wooded highlands and high mountains, the almost treeless landscape of Scotland, the humid floodplains of southeastern Europe or the hot and dry plains of Spain, there are good populations.

Red deer can reach live weights of up to 350 kg, depending on the habitat and the range offered, with a shoulder height of up to 150 cm.

The adult hinds form herds with their offspring. Younger stags also form smaller herds, whereas the older stags roam alone or with a smaller stag most of the time. During the rutting, the strongest deer keep a herd of females. The distinctive roaring of the deer is then heard far and an impressive natural spectacle.

The trophy is very different in branching variety and strength depending on habitat. Red deer hears, sees and smells extremely well.

Hunting season/Hunting method

The rut begins at the end of September in the hunting areas near Toulouse. Basically you try to stalk the calling deer. Hunting from a high seat, as is usually the case in many countries, is hardly known in France.

Equipment

The equipment does not have any special requirements for this hunt. The clothes should be adapted to the late summer, it is best to bring a set of a little warmer and a set of lighter clothing with you. It can be warm as summer or cool as autumn. In addition, you should of course take good binoculars with 8x or higher magnification, to be able to spot the deer correctly. For the calibers you can use all common sizes from 7 mm and higher.

Accomodation

During your stay you will live in country inns or smaller hotels, depending on your location. In France hunters enjoy a high social status and are always welcome. Both service and cuisine of the French are well known and so far all our guests have felt comfortable. 

Enjoy culinary delights and fine drinks, far away from the daily stress and hectic pace of our modern times.
