Château de Villette Driven Boar Hunting

Château de Villette Driven Boar Hunting

Come and stay at the magnificent Château de Villette to experience not one but two spectacular days of premier wild Boar hunting with traditional fox hounds and also classic driven boar. This offer won’t stick around for long and spaces are filling fast!

Enjoy the opportunity to shoot classic driven boar with beaters and small dogs driving the boars fast through the line whilst you’re sat nestled up on a high seat or tower roughly 1 metre off the ground. This type of shooting is thrilling, fast past and adrenaline filled sure to keep you on your toes. The boar run at full speed which presents you with a challenging target which is fast-paced.

Not only will you get a chance to shoot classic driven boar but the opportunity to give the more traditional type a go too. Hunting with foxhounds is a historical and traditional activity typical in France. It involves the tracking and a chase by trained foxhounds and also a group of unarmed followers led by a master of foxhounds who follow the hounds on foot. You will be posted in a line and when a boar breaks through the line it can be shot. The distinctive howling “Music” of the hounds announces whether they are on the scent of the boar.
