Description

Location

An exceptionnal experience in the beautiful South of France, offering some of the finest driven wild boar hunting combined with French gastronomy and exclusive accommodation in a famous vineyard.

Located only one hour from Toulouse airport or 30 minutes from the famous medieval city of Carcassonne, “DOMAINE GAYDA” is a very well known vineyard, making red and white wine. This « domaine » offers the perfect base for an original hunting trip. With 4 privates villas (8 double rooms in total) and a restaurant over looking the vineyard … the group will be immerse in the French atmosphere.

Hunting area

We manage an 500 hectares private estate (fenced) specificly for wild boar hunting. Over the last 10 years we have done our very best to be able to offer our guests an amazing experience. We have an estimated population of around 80 wild boars on the estate and we organise three driven hunts each season to harvest the surplus. Each hunt is organised over two hunting days with an estimated bag of 20 wild boars and more. A specific area of the estate is managed to stalk trophy tuskers … these animals take at least 5 years to give their very best and we have now many keilers with tusks over 20 cm.

Our package offers two driven days for a team of 8 guns targeting at least 20 wild boars (no trophy fee). We offer optionnal stalking / high seat outings for guests willing to shoot a big keiler. Before the hunt begins (on arrival day) we will be practising on a running wild boar target range … always a great time with plenty of banter and a perfect way to warm up.
