Pheasant hunting over pointing dogs
Pheasants are found all over the country but only few places still have a wild population. Our focus is to offer top-quality, wild pheasants hunt and the area we hunt in Umbria offers one of the best opportunities in the country for the sportive pheasant hunter.
English Setters or Pointers will assist the hunter who will have to work hard in order to shoot the wild birds used to run far in front of the dogs before flying. This hunt, far from a commercial bird hunt, is not a volume hunt: every pheasant shot is a challenge able to offer great hunting experiences!
The area also hosts some wild Italian hares that can be hunted in combination with pheasants, as well as grey partridges. Big game is also available and can be combined with pheasant hunts to offer an even more complete and interesting experience: wild boars can be hunted all year long while non-trophy roe deer and fallow deer in specific periods.

Exploring the region
Base for this hunt will be Umbria, known to be what “Tuscany was 20 years ago”, with a wild countryside, vineyards, and small medieval villages. The two areas are few miles apart, near the medieval village of Gubbio and Perugia, 2 hours from Florence and Rome. Cities like Siena and Assisi can be visited during the day.
Umbria is also known for the regional cuisine based on game, black truffle and salami. As roe deer hunting season falls during summer, this hunt is probably the best one in Italy to experience when wishing to spend a longer holiday in Italy, having the chance to visit some of the greatest Italian attractions in the most enjoyable time of the year.
