Boar hunting in the Schoenbuch.

In Schoenbuch, south of Stuttgart, there are three primeval forests in which nature is allowed to take its course. Ancient oaks and beech trees reach into the sky, some of these are more than 300 years old.

The Dukes and Kings of Wuerttemberg once hunted here – the most beautiful forest in the country. The starting point of many hunts though was the monastery of Bebenhausen.

Expanding the horizon at the edge of Europe.

Under the guidance of the Norwegian long-range specialist Thomas Haugland, a small team of highly skilled shooters tested the limits of what is possible on the uninhabited

Stalking

In densely settled Central Europe, the hunt is more indispensible than ever. Crop damage in agricultural monocultures as well as the widespread policy of ‘woods before game’ often clouds the joy of hunting on one's own ground to a great extent. What a joy it then becomes to hunt in a country like Hungary, a place where these problems hardly seem to exist.
