    Always love seeing your pictures Foxi! That picture of the roses with the snow covered mountain in the background is breathtaking.

    The biggest part of the driven hunt season is done by now. There will be a few hunts until christmas and a few in january, but a lot of areas have been very successful and can now stop their hunting until next season.

    My dog and I had a pretty good season so far with around 25 heads of game taken in about 20 hunts.

    Some impressions:

    [​IMG]

    The first hunt of the season has been a blast right away. I had just loaded my rifle and the dog was still on his leash when a small group of red deer passed my stand. Unfortunately I could not get the hind after I shot it´s calf, but the spiker of the group was too far behind, so I managed to take him as well. Apart from the two piglets I could have easily taken another boar or two, but the weather was very bad so I didn´t hear them coming.

    [​IMG]

    Due to the good acorn drop last year the boar had a really good food situation. Therefore some sows even had two litters this year. These two boars are about 11 months and 1 month old and do have the same mum. Piglets of that small size are not common, so it´s good to take them out whenever you can.

    [​IMG]

    Another successfull hunt. Got the two boars out of a group that my dog pushed towards me.

    [​IMG]

    Quite an interesting buck. Good thing he hadn´t already shed his antlers like some others.

    [​IMG]

    Got those two last saturday. The tableau was quite impressive, regarding we were only about 40 hunters.

    I saw in one of your pictures a climbing stand and was wondering if they are commonly employed in your country?

    My son is currently stationed near hohenfels. He missed his first deer season in 10 years. Ive been sending him hunting sites in Germany, had no idea or thought they could hunt military grounds. Thank you very much for this post.

    in the moonlight came me this fox and shot him, I scared right what I saw there.
    An extremely mangy specimen.
    We have a much too high fox population in Germany and one of the consequences is the spread of the mange.
    The poor guy would have frozen to death in winter and before that he would have infected 20 other foxes.

    Yes shootist,poor guy's fate made me sleep bad this night.
    Since our" pig invasion" you don't shoot them that much anymore and diseases are the consequence like with any overpopulation.
    Since first May this year I've got 21 foxes,18 in our concession.
    I'm behind it.

    Further north, in Finland, we don't have too many foxes, except perhaps in the very north where they diminish the chances of the endangered white fox / arctic fox.
    The spread of the raccoon dog is making things worse for everything furry. It is very effective at spreading mange and other bugs and parasites. Regulations were recently changed, so that it is deemed a harmful invasive species that can be killed any time of the year. I don't think it can be stopped, though.

    I have already reported briefly about the Benedictine monastery St.Ottilien near Munich.
    Their missionary work already went to Tanzania in 1887, when it was called German East Africa.
    I recently drove there again to their Africa Museum, hoping for new exhibits.

    The animal preparations there resemble a little Stephen King's "cemetery of cuddly toys".
    And Dennis (Harris,Artistry of Wildlife) would probably faint if he saw it, but don't forget, the stuffed animals are over 100-120 years old.

    Missionary at the rest.
    The church missions spread the word of Jesus Christ, but also destroyed the local culture, fought against animism, Islam and were also buffers of their protégés against colonial oppression. Two sides of a medal came to light there.

    Wahehe war dancer.

    The Wahehe were the most powerful tribe against which the Germans had to fight .
    10 long years they had to run to beat them at the end ,so that they did not take part later in the Maji Maji rebellion anymore.
    The Hehe were the main supplier of slaves in German East Africa, that should not be forgotten. Their neighbours had to pay tribute or were destroyed.
    Their brilliant chief Kakwa never let himself be seized and died in the end by suicide, because he did not want to fall into the hands of German troops (if he actually did... ).

    Mganga
    N'goni healer and Diviner had a leading role during the Maji Maji Revolt (1905-1907) in anti colonial uprisings
    The vacuum left by the Wahehe was soon filled by the Wa'ngoni from the Rufji river near Njombe.
    Fierce Zulus who immigrated to East Africa in the 19th century.
    Hut tax, forced labor, prohibition of slaves and ivory hunting led to riots in German East Africa (in other African countries as well).
    The Maganga spoke water holy, with which the warriors were wetted in order to be safe from the bullets of the white ones.
    Did not work.

    The nun "Sister Walburga" was one of the first victims of the Maji Maji uprising in Tanzania.

    Not like in the U.S., but they are becoming more and more popular, especially for driven hunts. I have mine for about four years now and I use it for a lot of different hunting methods, but definately more on driven hunts. Regarding our hunting system (no public lands, only a few hunters that know each other in a certain area) most productive spots are equipped with stationary high seats that can be entered very quietly. The climbing stand does make a little noise when you set it up, so you have to plan your approach carefully. On driven hunts, the height is key, as you can hunt in cover where the animals normally stop and think about what they do next. You would not see them sitting in a normal high seat or a small driven hunt seat, but you can easily pick them off sitting on a fir tree in 6-8m of height. Meanwhile, I use the climbing seat on about 75% of my driven hunts and my average harvest rate per hunt has quite increased. It´s a little difficult to handle the dog at the same time, but it works.

    Thanks, I like to understand how hunters in other countries conduct their hunts.

    As we are talking about climbing seats:

    [​IMG]

    We had another driven hunt on friday. First snow of the season. Snow really helps a lot when doing driven hunts, because you can see the game way better and it also helps to judge whether and where your shot hit if the animal does not drop on the spot. Those three roedeer all went a few yards after being hit, but tracking was a piece of cake and I did not have to get a dog for the job. My pup did a great job chasing deer and boar and made about 13 miles in a good 2,5 hours, so he was really happy to get back into the warm car after his work and get some food instead of tracking deer.
