Czech Republic Driven Pheasant Hunt

Adventure Description

The history of pheasant breeding in the Bohemian lands goes back to the 11th century and the first official pheasantry was founded near Králuv Dvůr by the Bohemian king and German Kaiser Charles IV in the 14th century. The breeding and hunting of the pheasant have become so popular here that during the times a specific species called in French Fasan de Boheme or in German der Bohmische Jagdfasan become very popular for its strong and healthily form. The modern driven shooting is connected with the Hasburg imperial house reigning in the Bohemia till the World War One. In the 1845 there were almost 200 pheasant breeding across the country of Czech Republic. Nowadays the driven shooting in the Czech Republic boasts great reputation for the quality of birds, excellent organization and maintaining of original tradition connected to the event. With this premier outfitter, driven pheasant shoots take place in an area of over 2000 hectares where 50,000 pheasants are released each year. Local breeding stations produce healthy young birds with a good ability to adapt to the harsh conditions of life in the wild. Pheasants are usually released at 10 weeks of age. This means that during the shooting days you will find well developed birds with beautiful plumage and long tails. The area is largely wooded with tall trees. All drives on the two day shoot are of good to excellent quality. Some of the drives are extremely challenging as the guns are placed in narrow gorges between rocks and surrounded by tall trees with the pheasants flying very high over their heads. Other drives are organised in such a way that guns see pheasants arriving from a distance, flying very high over hills and tall trees. As many of this outfitter’s guests from UK and other countrises can attest, there is no doubt that this area can satisfy even the most demanding guns. When it comes to the organization of a driven shoot, the days begin with a short ceremony involving the staff, guns, beaters, dogs, and pickers-up. Instructions for the day are given, followed by the sounding of horns. The number of drives per day varies from 5 to 7, and each gun takes a different position in each drive, so that all guns have similar shooting opportunities during the day. Each gun can count on one or two loaders (who load the guest's gun and keep a record of the birds shot on each drive) and a helper to carry shells. Experienced beaters and high pedigree dogs make an essential contribution to the success of shooting days with rich game bags of 500 to 1,500 and more. At the end of each day', the bagged pheasants are laid out in a neat tableau surrounded by fresh evergreen branches. In keeping with local tradition, hunting horns are blown. When it comes to accommodations, a very pleasant stay is assured in a Classicistic Chateau set around 70 km from Prague and near the shooting area. Surrounded by a beautiful English park famous for its sequioa trees that are under over 160 years old. The Chateau has been carefully refurbished in past years using modern material while maintaining its historical charm. Elegant rooms offer comfortable sleep, fast free internet connection, cable TV and minibars, while the suites also have large living rooms. The Chateau offers a luxurious wellness area and multiuse sport camp. The hotel’s Restaurant serves a selection of Czech and international cuisine accompanied by fine local and foreign wines. In regards to the gastronomy during the shooting day, the gastronomic part of the trip is almost equally important as the shooting one. This premier outfitter makes sure their guests have a great experience when tasting local food with specialties from venison. The restaurant serving the lunch included in the first two packages is probably the most famous one for venison meals in the Czech Republic and represented the country at the EXPO exhibition in Milan and Dubai. Furthermore, upon request, this outfitter can curtail a beautiful dinner at one of the premier restaurants in the area. The chef of this luxury restaurant boasts experience in many awarded restaurants like "Atelier de Joël Robuchon" and "Les Ambassadeurs" in "Hotel de Crillon", to name a few. A few years ago, he moved from restaurant in France (2 Star Michelin restaurant in French Riviera) to lead staff of Czech Restaurant near Prague where he delights the most refined palates. Ultimately, when it comes to one of the most premier upland hunts in the Czech Republic, this outfitter delivers with premier service, shooting, and accommodations, for more information and to book your own hunt, give us a call today.
