ZEISS at Jagd & Hund in Dortmund

From 30 January to 2 February of this year, Jagd & Hund, Europe’s largest hunting fair again offered everything the hearts of hunters and fans of the great outdoors could ever wish for. In line with the company’s traditions, this year saw the return of Zeiss to the fair with a broad spectrum of products from the current portfolio and a number of exciting new additions.

The Victory Rangefinder System line recently launched at the ‘Shot Show’ specialist trade fair and the new Conquest V4 riflescope family took centre stage.


Sandra Jung and Harris Hawk Dexter on the hunt

The crow hunting season began again on 1 August. I am an avid fan of this type of hunting, which I carry out with Dexter, my tercel Harris’ hawk. Falconers refer to male hawks as tercels because they are a third (Latin: tertium)

smaller than their female counterparts on average.
In the context of wild bird hunting, tercels are able to help us falconers because of their lower body weight, which makes them more agile.


For Sandra Jung, falconry and hunting allows her to be as close as possible to nature. Sandra discovered her passion for birds of prey at the age of just 16 when she began working voluntarily at weekends for a falconry centre. Sandra subsequently acquired her hunting qualification and falconry licence in 2011.

Now the business management student runs a small bird of prey operation business between Cologne and Düsseldorf with her boyfriend Benedikt Nyssen.
