Last July 28-29 I went to the already famous show The Game Fair. This time was in Hatfield so I choose to stay in London that woke me up some really great memories during my time working and living in that amazing city.
I had high expectations placed on the trip where I had an appointment to meet up with old and new friends / clients (many friends already).
It was very nice to see the great hospitality with which each and every one of them treated me. The first day and just after arriving at the fair I was greeted by the team of Eagle Review (website that I recommend to each and every one of you). I have the great pride of having been represented in his stand. They spoke to me about the operation of the fair (giant compared to other fairs in Europe) thing that helps me a lot.
During those days, I was lucky enough to be able to meet old friends like Guy, Sean, James, Martin (the best editor of Shooting Gazette!) … and even meet me at the fair with friends from Spain! Apart from meeting clients and already friends there at the fair and a couple in London with what I had a fantastic time.
In the same way I could meet new ones and finally have a personal talk like Alex, Will, Tom, Charles, Jonny, Chris, Charlie, Nicholas, etc. Without forgetting of course the honor of being able to chat long and long with Dave Carrie, whom I hope to see again sooner than later. No doubt there are few people who take better care of this wonderful practice like him. Cannot also forget some other friends I couldn’t meet there-
Overall it was a great weekend and, above all, a pleasure to have been able to share some time with each and every one of the people I was with. Increasingly surprised at how to take care of hunting in the UK, no doubt and from my point of view, a lot, a lot to learn.
Hope see you againg soon!

I love hunting and because I love hunting I am ecologist and conservationist.
Hunting is not killing. Hunting is conservation. Conservationism of our country side and flora and fauna.
Being committed with conservation must be our main focus as hunters and lovers of shooting. Committed with the country side maintaining it in good condition picking up cartridges or any other kind or rubbish produced.
All our guards work during the whole year keeping our estates in the best conditions possible, feeding and taking care about the health of animals. Prune the brush, olive trees, vine yards, holm oaks giving the health that nature needs for a natural and complete development producing a big and a healthy flora.
At Cacerías Ibéricas we are specialized committed to environment and different species that live in there. Actually taking special attention to our Iberian lynx and protected species.
We also work hand with hand with the government attending any request to collaborate at any time.
Committed to keep the feeders and waterers taking care the whole year of our partridges trying to maintain them in the best conditions and non-losing the pure red-legged partridges of our country side trying to increase their population is one of our main focus nowadays.
Installation of feeders and waterers to supply the needs of the field – nowadays too technified to be suitable habitat -, sowing’s lands dedicated exclusively to the food of the species, protection of nests of partridges, etc.
In our case, we always put the survival of the species in the interest of hunters. Hunt exists because of hunters.
Our global network of passionate shooters and hunters has been further increased in partnership with Cowans Sporting, one of the UK and Spain’s premium sporting agency’s.
UK clients hosted by Craig Denman, business owner of Cowans Sporting are rapidly increasing. The last few seasons has seen many new UK clients join us here at El Despeñadero for our excellent driven partridge shooting.
We were very fortunate to be visited this season by Craig who bought along his colleagues from the Shooting Gazette. We had the most memorable day’s partridge shooting and a lot of entertaining hospitality along the way. The article is due out in May this year and will cover our shoot and our local traditions in more depth.
Guns new to shooting in Spain under the guidance of Craig and his team are enjoying a totally new sporting experience.
Our Partridges flourish in the warm Spanish sunshine, we show strong, hard and fast flying birds that often take our oversees guns by surprise. Many of the teams comment on the fantastic condition of our birds whose welfare is our outmost importance. From the moment you enter our estate you will see the many thousands of birds we have. It’s not unusual on a typical shoot day for teams to see over 6000 birds in a single day.
Our typical day of shooting is for 500 birds, it’s possible for us to shoot more and we have ample scope with over 5000 acres to shoot back to back days very comfortably.
