Driven Game Montarias
Montaria Portugal 2023
We would like to thank you for the interest in hunting with us in Sunny Portugal.
We would be delighted to be your hosts for the duration of your stay and guide you in the Traditional Portuguese Montaria (Driven Hunt)
The driven hunt takes place as a traditional hunt. Iberian style with lots of dogs,
sometimes up to 400 will be chasing game. That alone is an impressive sight.
This is a true hunt, we will work our best for the success that you are hoping for.
Our average bag is of 20 sometimes more some times less per day
with average of 30 hunters per group.
This is true free range wild animals with no fences to contain them.
It is important that expectations are at the right level,
this animals are as wild as they can be.
The terrain you will be hunting can be quite a challenge with plenty hills,
among olive and eucalyptus trees. In southern European forest cultures, consists
predominantly of low dense shrub-like trees.
Pig hunting takes place in dense vegetation.
The deer is hunted in wider, open areas with great visibility and with the possibility
of slightly longer shoots.
Arrival Pick up on arrival after gun checks by the Police.
You will be pick up on a private bus.
The journey to the hotel will be approximately two and a half hours drive.
On arrival you will have time to relax until dinner is served.
Accommodation we mainly use traditional
Portuguese Vila (country estates) or rural Hotel.
These properties have the closest character to a vineyard.
For this superb accommodation two people per room is essential.
If interested in hosting your own day for a private group we can accommodate
in single rooms in hotels near by.
Catering when it comes to food we pride in the best the country has to offer
and that is a fact, accompanied with regional wines.
We can't guarantee you will shoot a boar or a stag,
but we will guarantee you that we will do our very
best for you to do so.
The Hunt.You will pick a card on the presentation.
That will tell you your driver and peg number for the hunt.
You will them be taken to the post and picked up by the same driver.
Be ready to shoot on the drop off.
We use several dogs so high focus and attention at all times.
Game is usually very quiet or very fast.
You will stay on the same Peg for the duration of the hunt 3/4 hours.
It can be extremely intense and exciting, as often you'll be able to see the game
movement in flight from the dogs even at long distance.
Will use different properties that never been hunted for the season,
so we can have the best advantage possible.
We may have to move hotel on the second day but this is in the name
of the game, chase them where they are.
The south of the country is more Boar prominent
hence the reason to move.
We normally hunt one big drive a day, it's why it is called Montaria.
Depending on the result and after lunch a drive can be organised
for the afternoon so we can increase the odes to everyone.
After the hunt, a taste of traditional Portuguese wine and food.
