I would like to add on to a part of Red Leg's post. I also have been to France maybe 8 or 9 times, but never hunting. I have a Lonely Planet pocket size French language book designed for tourists. Start studying it several months before you go, a little each day. It will work wonders for talking/dealing with the French people, and yes even in Paris. Just start at the beginning with what I call the niceties! It is actually pretty easy to start. Then move up to the more difficult sections. More times than not in my experience, if you start the conversation in French and they see you are having trouble, they will start speaking English. All of my French contacts through the years have been nothing but positive! By the way, there are lots of gun shops in Paris for doubles and bolt guns for you to window shop....you just can't buy anything...as far as I know. Google them for locations!
This is great info thank you! I have actually started language learning so hopefully it won't be THAT bad when I get there haha.
Thanks for the heads up on the gunshops, can't wait to dream/window shop!

Hi mate, you may want to consider England just a short flight and access to lots of affordable hunting , shooting. To be able to hunt in France you have to take examinations and it is all in French with no exceptions so your language skills must be good.
Here in the UK you can hunt (stalk) deer all year round as there is always something in season and of course there is the best pheasant and partridge shooting in the world.
Send me a message if you want any advise etc. Good luck with the move.

A days cull stalking for Red deer hinds in the Scottish highlands can be had for around £300 - 400 per day. No cull fees, shoot as many as you can.

Romania has excellent hunting. I hunted Roe deer there two summers ago and it was an amazing trip. Horia Spandu is your guy for Romania. He has Stag, Roe, chamois, wolves, and bear.

Tulu,

To hunt in France you need a hunting permit.(this can be a national one or a departemental one) France is divided in departments (like states in the US) en every department has is own hunting association. For Marseille this will be

Best to take contact with 'm. To own a firearm you'll need a permit or hunting license. Don't forget hunting is very popular in France and almost every type of game is available in the country. Major issue with France, most of the frenchmen only speak french....
Best tip I could give you is to take contact with one of your future colleges, there must be a hunter around who can introduce you...
Here the national link

Wow! Thank you for the links and info! That was my main thought was to try and make a “hunting buddy” to show me the ropes! I will never simply give up hunting, just keep trying! Thanks again!!

Actually I did have one more question for you! So here in the states reloading is pretty popular. I was thinking about taking some simple reloading equipment along and reloading over there. Are you aware of any laws that would prohibit reloading in France or if people even do it?

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
