    France is a total of 138 millions acres

    with 78 millions agricultural production ( 20% of total EU production 1st place )

    38 millions woods

    25 % of French population is rural

    And with Pyrenees( beteween France and Spain ) and Alpes mountains ( France /Italy )

    This left larges places to hunt

    And something like 4 or 5000 kilometers see front for waterfowl hunting

    Hope this can help to imagine France

    European wild boar hunting video Enjoy !

    This is true we have wolves

    France is not a very big country and we loose woods every years because population growing

    On an other side from long time the shepherds were in the habit of taking their animals spend the summer in the mountains let them fend for themselves and recover in the fall

    Since wolves have been reintroduced this is not possible and shepherds have few solutions and they are expensive and make them working

    Villages close from wolves are happy : this bring tourists as bears does in Pyrenees mountains ( between France and Spain )

    I’m close from Italy where wolves and sheep share same parts of Alpes mountains , as it is in Spanish Pyrenees in these two country shepherds and wolves live without problem

    On an other hand a wolves need something like one red deer a week Easy to imagine how may red and big deers ( and boars ) hunters do not have in hunting territories

    Bears are not enough in Pyrenees to be a problem And it’s very rare to see or to find they traces

    One of French specialty seams to have a group of anti each time an other group have any idea !

    And this is not limited about wolves !

    We have a law that makes hunters responsible for game damage and french hunting association have to pay for all damage .

    If a boar make damage in a vineyard it easy for the owner to charge hunters for plots that have not grown up by saying that the boars have destroyed.

    And owners vineyard are also hunters !:?:

    Here, as in many other place when you scratch the surface of things, it is often a $$$ question that is discovered

    Hi,

    As you are in Europe you should have a look at the best recureve I try

    I also saw many beautiful and often much more beautiful but all very far from Borderbows performance

    Mine is 42 Lbs and with my small 28inches draw lenght I send 530Grs arrows at 210 P/S sometime more

    210 is minimum

    If you got 5” have a look here and do not hesitate to call Sid owner of Borderbows

    He’s like his bows, a fantastic and very kind guy

    I think difficult to have a clean kill with a bedded animal

    I do not shoot bedded animal as do not shoot a bird on the ground

    Hi Alex,

    You wrote :

    So I’m done with the Shrew for this year… I think… I went and got my untouched 10 year old compound out of my storage place upstate, and after 5 minutes, I had groups of 3 arrows within 1/2 inch from each other at 15, 20, and 25 yards. I want to keep hunting, but I don’t want to wound another deer.

    France is not different I know ball trap champions who are true strainers when hunting

    I think a good bowhunter must shoot game as he shoot 3D target without emotion, without trembling, without his heart accelerates

    And this, is not the case for all

    if you have the opportunity get unarmed on a TS in a place where bears are, look at them moving eating a few meters from you

    When you remain the like you’re in front of your TV you can hunt with a bow with every chance of success

    If not look at small game for a time 😕

    The first two digits indicate outside diameter

    the other two shaft thickness

    13 is too weak for hunting ( and 3d shooting )

    never less than xx 17 for a correct shaft if you want shoot alu ( last century arrow material ):?::lol:

    in reply to: Wool Poncho #54110

    I live in south of France and weather is not very hard here But in less than one hour I can be more than 3000 feet and it’s very cold with high moisture

    During years I tried lot of special cloths but never found better than FILSON and his wool.

    certainly not the cheapest nor the lightest but cold or rain and sometime rain and cold are not problem

    They also stay very quiet

    When you buy Filson you buy for life time ! That’s true ! As my mother said : We’r not rich enough to buy cheap

    Filson (http://www.filson.com/ ) first quality wool allows you to stay hours under rain without be wet
