Picturesque landscapes with small villages, great wine and food are some of the ingredients that make hunting in Provence unique and make you a memory of a life time.
Wild mouflon hunting in Le Mas situated in the nature park Préalpes d’Azur is for you looking for a challenging mouflon hunt where the trophy on the wall will bring back memories of hard work and reward on the mountain slopes of southern France. The medieval village Le mas is in the center of the nature park Préalpes d’Azur provides the centre of our hunting adventure.
The European mouflon sheep Ovis gmelini musimon originate from the French island Corsica. The South of France, with its rocky terrain and dry climate provides one of the preferred habitats in Europe.
On the foothills of the mountains, between the Mediterranean Sea and the high mountains, is a rich and varied area: the Parc Naturel Régional des Préalpes d’Azur. The park stretches between 300 and 1,800 m above sea level, over 47 municipalities, covering diverse landscapes, due to the dual Mediterranean and mountain climate influence, rock gardens and arid moors, valleys, gorges and clues, forest areas and cultivated plains.
The classic mountain hunts in Provence are physically challenging hunts and challenges your skills as a hunter and marksman. Shooting distances can exceed 250 meters.
Hunting in southern France is much more than this! There is a richness of culture and a food tradition which you simply cannot find anywhere else in the world. The landscape is breathtaking with picturesque villages along the mountain roads.
Combining this hunting adventure with your family holiday is ideal with a little more than a one-hour drive to Nice, Cannes and Monaco, commonly referred to as the French Riviera. Let us know if you need assistance with guided tours, wine tasting or a truffle hunt with Jean-Jacques.
Guests are picked up at Nice airport and transferred to the place of accommodation.
Hunting Day 1 Morning: Arriving in the terrain 2 h before sunrise and assessing wind and weather conditions with a local guide, who will be guiding you in the mountains. We will be ascending at first break of light and stalking to strategic positions on the mountain to overlook the valleys and spot for movement and game.
Lunch in Le Mas or on the mountain depending on the weather conditions.
Hunting Day 1 Afternoon: The activity level of the mouflon during the hours from noon to early afternoon is relatively low and we resume hunting early afternoon in a combination of stalking and overlooking valleys. As a rule of thumb, we stop the hunt in good time before it gets dark, avoiding dangerous walks and having to retrieve the game in the dark.
Hunting Day 2: Follows the same rhythm as Hunting Day 1
Departure Day: At your discretion we will stop at the local taxidermist and coordinate any potential taxidermy work. Hereafter transport to the airport in Nice.
