Indian Ocean’ smile
The population of Mauritius is the result of continuous immigration of different races from Madagascar, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Cheerful, friendly, and cordial people whose characteristic feature that identifies them is their smile.
It was the Dutch who introduced the Russian or Javanese deer to Mauritius. The story goes that Governor Adrian Van Der Stel brought a couple of these species to the island and that after a cyclone, they managed to escape, thus beginning the proliferation on the island. Currently, the Russian deer is a great attraction and resource for the island, with a population of approximately 1,500 specimens. The best date to hunt in Mauritius Island is during the rut, from mid-July to the end of August. The extraordinary sense of smell, sight, and hearing, together with the perfect dominance of this species in the forest, makes it one of the hardest deer to hunt. In addition to the Rusa deer on the island, you can also hunt wild boars and pheasants.
