Youth driven hunt
El pasado sábado 12 de noviembre se llevó a cabo una batida de jóvenes cazadores en un pueblo de Guadalajara. La edad promedio de los participantes no superaba los 26 años y estaba conformada tanto por hombres como por mujeres.
La cacería abarcó una gran extensión de terreno con 40 puestos en los que sólo podía haber un acompañante. Era obligatorio el uso de chaleco reflectante, todos los participantes aportaron la documentación necesaria para la actividad y nadie se movió del stand prematuramente. Por tanto, a pesar de la aparición de una cacería de jóvenes inexpertos, se tomaron las medidas necesarias y todo transcurrió sin incidentes y con total normalidad. Esto hizo de la jornada una experiencia de campo única e inolvidable.
Comienza la caza arreada
The meeting started at 7:00 a.m. in a village near the estate, in a pavilion provided by the mayor himself. Here the drawing of the lots for the positions took place, this was done away from the hunting area so as not to disturb the animals. This was followed by breakfast, a perfect time to chat and get to know your companions. The appointment was so early to facilitate the work of the protagonists of the event, the rehaleros dogs. The aim was not to pillar the hottest hours of the day, thus facilitating their work in the bush.
At 8:30 a.m., the gunners were distributed to their assigned places on the estate with all-terrain vehicles. The distribution took just over an hour and after this, the release of the rehalas began. There were six of them, all of them from the province and with magnificent dogs. As for the stalls, they were very well distributed and could not be seen from one another, which made them very safe.
It was also incredible the amount of animals that could be seen in the area, such as deer, roe deer and large wild bucks. Despite this great diversity, only deer and wild boar could be shot.
Once the driven hunt was over, the bidders picked up each member of the team in order and went to the lunch that was being organised in the hunting lodge. The two wild boars that had been shot were dressed and samples were sent to the vets to ensure that they were disease-free and could be eaten. During the meal we exchanged interesting conversations about the day and our hunting experiences. We also had a small showroom of our Young Wild products, which was very popular with the participants.
With this kind of meetings we show the importance of this sector for the young people and we are also committed to the practice of the activity. Hunting has continuity from generation to generation and these young people are a great example of this.
