Ahoy there!...just returing the question about what we hunt for...basically to keep our clients entertained we hunt any kind of animal...we normally run mini contests to see who can hunt down the most animals in a day...this has ranged from red deer to seals, dolphins,  wolves, weasels and even on rare occasions we are able to hunt the endangered lynx... although we have only ever found this animal well away from the coast deep in the Pyrenees...

overall however the most common animals are the wild boar, deer and dolphins if a boat is involved in hunting trips...im guessing that Australia would be a better place to hunt due to its size and low population..over here you must be very careful about people around espaecially in summer..anyway if you require more information and wana discuss your trip than just let me know..cheers..

current time so it will be about 6 weeks before we start up again...   the weapon we use is of a sniper rifle design which gives clients the same feel and thrill of unsing a real gun..instead of the animals rolling over dead the animal gets the  shock of its life when shot and most run off at high speed...they  experience pain from the impact but the chip is in no way harmful in the long run...HOWEVER saying that  clients are taught where on the animal to shoot at..this is the tricky part...because if the animal is shot in the facial regions

than it could be potentiall fatal ..and the penalty for killing an animla such us an endangered lynx is very severe and killing any animal is against our policy...i am currently setting up a new website and will post it here asap when running hjope this answers your questions...thankx..
