The Roebuck is one of the largest game species in Europe. This hunt is highly appreciated by the hunters who attend every year the opening of the hunting season in order to go to the fields in search of this precious animal. Spain is the European country with the largest variety of game species and the Roebuck could not miss among the variety of its fauna. The hunting season is from 15th April to 9th October; Best time to find an outstanding head is during the rut in late July and early August.
A large caliber is not needed for these small animals, those in the .243 class being just about right. Shoulder height 25-36 inches (64- 92 cm). Weight 44-81 pounds (20-37 kg). Coloration is rich reddish brown in summer, with a gray face, white chin and black muzzle band. Rump patch is obscure.
We can find this specie in many areas of our country but mainly we hunt in the Region of Valencia where we can combinate with good airport connection (Valencia Airport is only 30 minutes from the hotel), nice accommodations and restaurants with exquisite Mediterranean cuisine.
Hunt Roe Deer
The hunt start early in the morning with a breakfast between 05.00 or 05.30h in the Hotel. The hunting area is about 20 – 40 minutes driving; it is mountain hunting areas where the Beceite Ibex can be also hunted. The type of hunt is “stalking” or in a waiting position behind the blinds. We are hunting early in the morning and in the afternoon still 21.00h; after the hunt in the morning we come back to the hotel to rest, having lunch and “siesta” before the next hunt in the afternoon.
You can include to this program as many hunting days as you wish but we recommend four hunting days with five nights accommodation. For the management of your Spanish license and insurance, we will need to receive copy of your hunting license and identity card or passport.
