I haven't been on this site in a while. I love working at Hohenfels, and the hunting is great; the Hohenfels training area is beautiful. It is about 18,000 HA and has about 6,000 Red Deer. All is Bundesland (federal government land-for those not in Germany), so you have to pay the band to dance. I have permission to hunt on the Hohenfels military training area and a couple of private Reviers. The local Reviers, like most in Germany, have a Scwarzwild problem they need us out 24/7 shooting them. I have more hunting area available than I have time to hunt. Never thought I would have that problem: Hi, my name is Craig, and I have a problem.Hi Craig,
Waidmannsheil for the Abschusshirsch.
I see the "letzter Bissen" (the branch in the mouth,a respect to the animals,remember all given by God)
Do you like Hohenfels forest ?

I'm retired Army and working and living in Germany. Look up "Hohenfels drive hunt" on YouTube. Lots of hunt videos from Germany.Thanks for the pictures and enjoyed reading the discussion. Lot of memories. Spent my first five years in the Army as an unmarried young officer stationed at Wertheim (1975 -1980) at the edge of the Spessart Mountains. Hunted through both the military system and with German friends. A revier (concession) holder took me under his wing, and I was able to help with the shooting plan on a huge 2K hectare mountain revier. Sadly, virtually all my photographs of that period were lost on one of our many moves. Waidmansheil!
Interesting politics with the media.
Germany is a Nice country to Hunt it, one of my Big Dreams is to Hunt schwarzwild when they Harvest the huge fields with corn! They say that there Are piggys all over.
The wildboar In germany Are a lot smaller than In sweden. We shoot wildboar In sweden each year over 200+ kg. The biggest one where I'm hunting In the southern part of sweden was male 389 kg and 32 cm weapons/waffen/teeth. Shot In winter In 1997 by my friend.
