    Hi Kathy,

    I don't guide Draathaar,but I know them very well.
    The most powerful German dog breed.
    But not a dog for softeggs.
    Respect when you came clear with them.

    Foxi, yes Drahthaar is a powerful breed. they are a true versatile hunting companion .Bird hunt in the morning, blood trail a deer that afternoon ,tree a coon that night.
    The thing about German registered breeds ( VDD-GNA ) they are tested for their hunting abilities , if they fail they are not aloud to breed. not like AKC if they have papers ,have at it. Forrest

    a good friend wounded in a winter night a fox.
    He let his Drahthaar out of the car and 20 minutes !!! later the hound killed the fox and apported him :)

    Im just coming from the deer rut in the Tyrolean Mountains (nothing happend :( ) .
    At this time ,there is the Almabtrieb also.
    When the feeding season ends in the Mountains for the cattle,the farmer of every village bring them back in the valleys for wintertime on a special day.
    Washed and well dressed-Farmer like cattle ;)
    Its a big festival in the german speaking part of the Alps.
    Some cowbells are over 150 years old.
    Hope you enjoy the beautiful cows.

    just coming back from the red deer rut in the Karpaten Mountains/ Romania/East Europe.

    The Karpaten Hirsch is shy,clever ,but the rut there is with nothing comparing to other ruts in Europe(exeptional the Highlands in Scotland ,its also difficult) .
    The tip building of his stag is more a Wapiti/Elk than a European deer.
    Liveweight 300 kg ,sometimes clear on the hook 250 kg
    The wilderness is awesome there.
    Moutainridge on Moutainridge over a few countrys (Slowakia,Poland,Ukraine and Romania),just wonderful.
    The deer could wandering thousands of miles without a fence.
    The area reminds me on British Columbia
    Karpaten like BC.jpg

    Part two:
    Karpaten Stick a.jpg
    We was hunting in the North of Transsylvania,in the near of the Ukraine and had a good rut.
    The cold morning was better then the afternoon .
    But,was I don't understand is, the the hunter there, are stalking without a stick.
    Mostly you have to shoot on 50m,no problem(train snapshots on this distance,when you want to go there) by a huge red deer in the Karpaten,but so often you have a range over 100/200 m up.
    And so I made my hunting mate an African three leg stick-finally I m a member of an African Hunting Forum :)
    I cut three fingerwide sticks in facehigh and knot them with a shoelace.Ready.
    And I was with him, when he shot a deer on lasered 162 m with a .30-06 ! in the last light.


    Karpaten Hirsch c.jpg

    normally I am a lucky guy on hunting.
    And so I got an old devil after good and long stalk.
    We guessed him on 12 years,300kg liveweight and the head,cooked out ,typical european style 8 KG
    Gents, Im telling you it was great.
    On the next picture you can imagine what for a monster a Karpaten-Hirsch could be.
    We cut the head and the rest was brouht by 4 men on the next day.

    \'goin home\'.jpg

    goin' home


    Karpaten-time stands still there.jpg

    time is standing still there.
    We had a cottage deep in the woods and won' t nothing hear of the news of the world.
    When we came home and hear the news like Volkswagen crisis,Euro crisis,Near East crisis,Refugee Crisis and and and.
    I'm yearning back to this area "by snow white and the seven dwarfs behind the seven mountains"

    Hope you enjoy my little story.

    Waidmannsheil! Very nice Hirsch.
    I have been lucky enough to hunt in Germany two times. A friend works for the city of Koln and I was able to hunt in the city and in the seven hills region. It was a great experience, although I now have a better appreciation for all the wilderness we have in Canada!
    Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    LEADERSHIP IS LOST

    when we entered the Zoo in Innsbruck /Austria, this year,we heared the fight and the howling of the bunch.
    The old male lost the fight and a younger one is now the chief; you can see the frustration in his eyes.

    Awesome pictures! Reading success stories like this really make me wish I were out hunting. I recently moved to Hessen and am in the process of getting my hunting license. So only a few more months and I should be able to post some pics of my own. WMH!!

    Thank you guys for the good word.
    @ Darren , mostly here are success stories,but evereyone knows the other side of hunting.
    It's only the hope to get prey ,that we all take the "bad" with the good.
    Snow,ice, heat ,rain,cold ,money ,time, dissussions with your wife........ :whistle:
    You have to learn a lot now in Germany,but I'm sure, than,Hessen Forst has a lot of good work for you.

    I know exactly what you mean. Hunting without experiencing the lows would mean the successes wouldn't be as sweet. And, as hunters, we definitely learn more from our failures than our successes. I cannot wait to begin hunting here. I'm sure there are tons of lessons just waiting to be learned ;)
