German Social Hunt
 
8 Attachment(s)
We had a succesful social hunt in Kusel. Fox (Fuchs), Roe Deer (Rehwild),
Fallow Deer (Damswild) and boar. After the ceremony we ate at a gasthaus and drank a lot. What more could you ask for.

That is a lot of animals. What are you gonna do with 'em?

When the locals have finished dividing up all the organs, what do you do with the meat? No offense and none taken. :)

On this hunt, the revier owners kept the meat. The hunters who actually harvested the animals kept the organs and trophies. You can buy the animal you shot, or part of it. A Roe deer costs about 40€. Each hunt is different though, but this is the norm. The fox are skinned, or buried. You can take it home without cost. Looks like a lot of animals, but Germany is way over populated. The animals are damaging the land and trees. The fox are killing off live stock and smaller animals. Only 2% of the German population hunts.

That sounds like a badass fox. Over here they are tiny and adorable, sometimes mischievous egg thieves.

Saw one last fall that was so mangy, the only fur left was on its tail. Did not look adorable, I am curious how it faired this winter?

Not knowing how large the property is Jäger was hunting, it seems to be densely populated with fox.

Hey Jager, I counted approx. 30 pairs of feet in the photos. How many shooters, how many drivers and how many hounds participated in the hunt?

Gut Gemacht!

I'm glad that Germany still allows hunting.
Drink one for me!

There are drivers/beaters in there too with their dogs. Maybe 15 drivers and 10 dogs. Do not remember the numbrs of hunters though. We were stretched between three reviers. Not all the hunters came to the ceremony or the dinner afterwards. Sorry.
