Hunting and travelstories

Swamps and strategies – Snipe hunting in Portugal

Before we left Denmark, our Portuguese contact wrote that he was planning a hunt for snipes. Michael found a video on YouTube just to tune in on the challenge and said in a quiet voice: I think you are going to see me under pressure! Because in that video they claimed snipes to be the fastest gamebird in the world!

Partridge hunting in Portugal – Things you do to travel!

Our trip to Portugal began with an invitation in a chat on Instagram. Yup! Something we always will tell our kids NOT to do! Even Miguel,”the man my husband met on the internet”, admitted that he probably wouldn’t have gone to Denmark on the same conditions. But we lowered our expectations and if the hunting part would fail, the two of us would still be on a little getaway and most important; I would get to travel!

In need of a survival trip

For years Michael has wanted to go canoeing, so this little get away next to Gudenåen (the longsest stream of flowing water in Denmark) is actually last year’s anniversary gift from me to him.

My friendship with Steen goes approximately 25 years back, so the challenge was taken very seriously when his wife asked me to arrange a hunting trip as his birthday present.

Thoughts and comments from a hunterswife – Day 2/5

Monday, I left our two teenage kids to drive 15 hours with my husband to spend several days hunting, which is something I have paid so little attention to during the 2 decades we have been married.

Fallow deer doublé

Today, I received a very generous invitation from a new hunting friend, Anders, to go deer hunting. That is a little hard to say no to.

Hunting wild boar in Texas

I have been on a vacation with my family. We wanted to go to Redding, CA for two month and spend a lot of time with good friends and enjoy the incredible nature in Northern California. While we were there i went to Texas for a wild boar hunt.

Management buck

Last night I was sneaking around after this roebuck in 1,5 hours and was so close to get him with the bow.
