Wildlife conservation measures in Spain

Hunting is first of all conservation, and wildlife conservation measures are a must in a country that is mature enough to realize that something that is not being taken care of is destined to decay and perish.

Wildlife management attempts to balance the needs of wildlife with the needs of people using the best available science. Wildlife management can include game keeping, wildlife conservation and pest control. In Spain, the Ministry of Environment intends to pays special attention to wildlife management and adopts several Wildlife conservation measures, focusing them on the well-being of Spain´s natural world.

The peculiarities of the European Roe deer

The European Roe deer, also know as the Roe Buck is relatively small compared to the other types of deer in Europe, like Red deer (Red Stag) or Fallow deer.

Spain hunting report

Spain Hunting trip with tourism, Lance Caskey, 2016

Normally before a hunter and his observers come to Spain we have already settled the general itinerary with them. But if you have ever been on a hunting trip you know that hunting is not a precise science and we depend totally on the weather conditions: precipitations, temperature, wind, fog etc. On the other hand we also depend on the “mood” of the animals. Sometimes they are not where they usually hang out and sometimes you bump into them in the least expected areas. Because, you already know: “That´s hunting!”

Lance and his wife hunted in Spain with us during 7 days and during this week we have lived many different experiences and learned a lot about the Spanish tradition, culture and cuisine.

And according to the scoring of the animal, this person will have to pay the extra points of their animals.
This article will explain the scoring systems and measurements for the 4 different species of the Spanish ibex.

Hunting tradition in Spain

Hunting tradition in Spain, necessity and social class

Spain has an abundant hunting heritage and the hunting tradition in Spain can be connected to the most remote first signs of human civilization. Hunting was one of the first activities of the ancient people that lived on the face of the earth. Using prehistoric weapons, hunting was the main source of food.
