The Spanish partridge is taking hold more and more. Twenty years ago it was virtually unknown outside our territory, and now is “the pretty girl”. The development of hunting tourism in recent years has been impressive and no doubt will continue because there is nothing as the Spanish drive “quality”. If things are done right. Spain, in a matter of hunting, will be the dream paradise. ¿Reasons? Obviously, we have a great protagonist: RED LEGGED PARTRIDGE.
