Its a traditional driven hunt we have in spain and considered to be one of the best game birds by hunters due to its beauty, audacity , fast and erratic flight, when beaters drive the birds making sounds to your position and enable you to shoot hundreds that fly above you, We started at 7:00am with Homemade spain breakfast then introduction to the beaters and loaders for the hunting, we did 2 beats in the morning, then a great meal in the open after a good rest and some drinks, starts 2 beats in the afternoon we mange to shoot in a day 1,000 birds maybe a bit more. its a great hunt! and not a easy one.
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
