On the hunt
Hunting in the mountains, especially in high alpine altitudes, has a special appeal to it. The clean air, the far sight and the panoramic landscape make every hunting trip an extraordinary experience. But in order for such a trip to become a huge success, the right preparation is needed.
Alpine hunting is not the same as hunting in the woods. It has certain pitfalls. Those can be easily avoided if you know what you are doing. ZEISS Hunting provides you with tips and tricks to make your adventure unforgettable.

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.
A heavenly quiet of the sort that is almost never seen anymore in old Germany pervades the hilly landscape of extensive and primeval mixed woodlands that are a paradise not only for red deer but for boar and roe deer as well.

Deep valleys, sharp ascents, high mountains, clear lakes and wild streams: The Scottish Highlands are one of the most exciting and challenging hunting regions of the world. ‘My heart is in the Highlands chasing the deer’ is the chorus of an old traditional Scottish folk song by Robert Burns.
He knew way back then that hunting in the Highlands is a matter for the heart. Not only because of its beautiful nature and various types of terrain, but also because of the warm Scottish hospitality and the whole atmosphere, the Highlands attract passionate hunters from all over the world.

Hunting is no longer a male-dominated sport
On the hunt
Being out into the woods on a hunting trip is no longer just for men. More and more women are discovering their passion for hunting these days. Even though men still account for the majority, the number of women actively hunting has steadily risen over previous years.
According to the Federation of Associations for Hunting and Conservation of the EU, the percentages of female hunters range between one percent in Belgium, Bulgaria and Italy, five percent in Denmark and the Netherlands, and ten percent in Germany.

Final stop, 01st November 2014
Our last day of the incredible Variety Tour starts again very early. Today it is the first day of the Chinese Water Deer season. Chinese water deer were first introduced into Great Britain in the 1870s. The animals were kept in the London Zoo until 1896, when Herbrand Russell oversaw their transferral to Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire.
More of the animals were imported and added to the herd over the next three decades. Today the area around Bedford is well known for its huge population of this species.Today we are concentrating on female CWD and there comes the challenge...

We are still in the amazing and “typical British” town Stow-on-the-wald and after everyone got the maximum amount of five hours sleep we are ready to hunt some more.

Third stop, 30th October 2014
The day began very early. Everybody got up at 5 o’clock in the morning. In complete darkness we left to different spots on the hunting grounds in Bedfordshire.
Some of the hunters were going to hunt from the high seat, some were going to stalk – no problem for the equipment, which is made for low light conditions as well.
