Our First-Hand Experience

To be completely honest, Spain was not high on our list of lifetime destinations to visit.  No reason in particular…As soon as we landed in Madrid, we knew we were in for a treat.  We decided to spend a couple of nights touring and then Juan collected us in a Range Rover for our scenic drive to our first destination in the lovely countryside of Spain for an Ibex hunt.  Following our time in the mountains, we transferred to the charming 16th century estate.

We were delighted at the pace of our  trip as we enjoyed some amazing driven Partridge hunts interspersed touring to quaint towns, cathedrals and off the beaten path locations.  Beatrice was a lovely guide when we were not in the mountains. The meals of course were excellent and we decided that the Spanish wine was delicious.  Martha who was about 75 joined the Family checkout team on this trip and she made fast friends with other guests over dinner each evening.  Martha is a dear dear friend and we were so glad she joined us!

I’m not sure you will find more lovely and gracious hosts on the planet.

“The red legged partridge, one of the fastest FLYING birds. These birds will put your shooting abilities to the test. It´s hard to get more action than on a well organized drive.” Beltran

This warm and inviting family and their family of guides will treat you to an experience your entire family will remember for the rest of their lives. You are sure to fall in love with the culture and the amazing hunting Spain has to offer. When you meet the owners, you will immediately know that you are in excellent hands and with people that you will want to hunt with for years to come.

Spanish Driven Bird Hunt and Big GameAmazing driven Red Legged Partridge hunting during the fall and winter months is sure to add fantastic memories for all for life.  It is has been a long time tradition in Spain. The Red Legged Partridge is a fast flying bird that follows the contour of the terrain. 

They normally organize groups of 6-8 shooters for a program of three days shooting and four nights. The average bird bag for the three days is 1500 birds between the whole line.

You will enjoy four different drives every day.

 Each shooter has a loader and a “secretario” which carry all the guns and shells around the field. Two guns of the same gauge are very recommendable as the birds normally come in flocks. It is once in a life time experience for any avid bird shooter. The accommodation during the shoot is at the owners’ 14th century luxury lodge only a 15 minutes drive from the hunting fields.

The owners of this lodge will never brag on their client list but we know from our experiences that kings, presidents, and high profile clients are their norm.

A common question is how do Red Legged Partridge fly? At this lodge they are described as medium high extremely fast flying birds! As Partridge hear shots fired, they tend to dart and dive with the terrain and change directions! Partridge shoots in Spain are unlike English pheasant hunting where the pheasant will tend to fly higher at the sound of the blast and are considerably slower birds.
