El Despeñadero y El Castillejo and La Cañada de Don Juan are the three current estates which we manage for our partrdige shooting.
In this Post, we want to make a special mention to one of our “star drive”, «Las Hoyas» or like recently it has been renamed, «La Mona» located on the estate “El Despeñadero”.
Located in a Valley, it is characterized by being a stalking long and deep which houses a large number of partridges. Before the start of this drive, and as in all them others, is carry to out two large tucked (action rather than required to meter the greater amount of partridges in the tuck in question) in which our team of beaters and our captain of hunting, Angelito, sweep a great amount of land getting the greater number possible of partridges in the drive.
Consisting of up to 10 pegs, but never recommended to hunt with so many as perfect is a number comprised between 6 and 8, is a stalking in which the partridges comply with great courage surprised on more than one occasion the hunters which should be alert at all times.
The beautiful and special in this drive is the diversity in the flight of the partridges, high partridges, those flying with the topography of the land and as not those arriving at the peg go up to 20 meters. A drive made by and for big boy’s since also is can find large cavies (the caviar of the partridge shooting) that comprise up to more than 400 birds being in these situations where is come of truth to them good shooters. How to face big cavies? Beginning to shoot soon when the bar still comes away and focusing on a single Partridge shot. Seems an easy task, but has great difficulty.
