Traditional Spanish Hunting

Huntsmen meet around 9:00 a.m. in a place known as hunting ground. Once they meet they have a traditional highland breakfast. The stands are raffled and divided into armadas, led by hunters or guides. The hunting area is a zone around 300 and 700 hectares of country or pasture land where the hunters settle in the stands. Next, a pack of hounds is released. A pack usually consists on two dozens of hounds led by a hound trainer. The driving hunt consists on leading the preys to the stands with the hounds. This lasts between three and four hours. A the end, the huntsmen are taken by the guide, who takes notes of the results and they go to the hunting ground, where they enjoy a cocktail and a country lunch. In the meantime, state staff, guides, assistants and guards, helped by mules and all-terrain vehicles; take the downed animals and present them orderly, in a hunting parade, so the huntsmen can identify their preys and enjoy the final result.
