Stalking France

France has enjoyed over two thousand years of hunting history. There are many species of wild animals and 95% of the hunting takes place in free ranging areas. There are also some fenced areas from 1,000 to 7,000 acres.

We organize hunts in France to stalk European Mouflon Sheep, European Red Deer, Pyrenean and Alpine Chamois, European Roe Deer, European Fallow Deer and Wild Boar.

We offer many different hunting areas depending on the game you are looking for:

  • Forest areas from 50 to 150 km from Paris (for Red Deer, Roe Deer, Wild Boar and Fallow Deer),
  • Forest mountain areas (for Red Deer, Roe Deer, Mouflon Sheep, Wild Boar, Feral Goat) in the southern and eastern part of France.
  • Mountain areas (for Pyrenean Chamois, Alpine Chamois, Mouflon Sheep, Red Deer, Roe Deer, Wild Boar) in the southern part of France in the Pyrenean and Alpine Mountains, in outstanding surroundings. 

For your entire stay, you will have an English speaking member of the W Horton & Son team as your guide. In addition to the hunting, you and your possible companion would be well placed to take advantage of all the opportunities Paris has to offer. Alternatively, there may be others things you might like to see or do while in France, we of course can assist you with this too.
