Hi there everyone,

Im a recent member of this spectacular "house" and im from Portugal. Sorry for my poor "english" but ill try to do my best.

In Portugal we use to hunt some different species you dont have in America, such as Partridges; Doves; WoodPigeons; Hares; Rabbits; Thrushs; etc etc...

We start our hunting season in 15 August and finish in the last Sunday of February. Bettween this period we dont hunt... its the season for the species to rest and take care of their descendants.

I like to share with you two of my last partdrige hunts in Portugal, probably you will not feel confortably viewing some differences between your and our hunting style.

Here in Portugal we used to divide the members of the team in two groups. One of them will hunt the land, walking with dogs to the upland birds (like partridges) run away. Some of the birds will be hunted here and the majority will escape. The other group stays on a line, next 2 ou 3 miles away form the line of the 1st group hunters, to wait partdriges pass to shoot them. I know it seems to be quite unfair, but believe me, its not quite easy as it looks. The partridges flies at high speed...

Enjoy...





PS: Sorry for the poor image quality but i just started now to film my hunts... i think ill improve myself with time...

Cheers!
Pedro Sales

There are driven hunts here as well. Most places in the Dakotas do driven type hunts for pheasants
And welcome, there is a member here from Argentina so don't feel like an outsider. We are all hunters.

Welcome!

Good shooting. Birds look like they are moving pretty good.
