At the Hubertus game


The best hunting dogs from the Artemis hunting games in five Dutch provinces were competing against each other in the Hubertus Hunting Competition on Saturday. The event was organised by my hunting trainer Richard Bosch from Jachthondentraininggroep Deutrechtse. It was a very interesting experience for me and Yatzie, who have never before seen something like it. The blowing of the horns to start and end the sessions added to the real hunting atmosphere.


The game consisted of four parts: retrieving a coot/sothöna, retrieving fox/rabbit (tracing), duck retrieving, goose hunt. The challenge for the dogs was rather high, and not everyone succeeded in each test. But when they did I was full of admiration!


The game was held outside of Haaften, Gelderland, in a spot so beautiful it even reminded me of Sweden! Apart from the wind mill that could be seen in the horizon! In the neighbourhood was also a herd of shetland ponies that I was able to get some nice shots of. Enjoy the photos!
