Program Information

The magnificent valleys and landscapes of the Pyrenees mountains are the perfect scenario for one of the most exciting huntings in the world: The matting of the red stag and the fallow deer.

The hunting day starts very early in the morning. After breakfast, we head to the rut areas at night. It is at the first light of day that the red stags are the most active. This is the best time to spot the old males who are hiding in the forest most of the year. The best season for matting time is end of September.

In the same area, it is possible to combine with the hunting of fallow deer. The fallow deer is an elusive animal that can live at high altitudes, in the same biotope as the chamois. The hunting areas are located in the Spot Valley, close to the French border. The fallow deer matting time begins in October, so sometimes it is possible to find both animals in matting period at the same time.

Hunting season

From September to January, the best dates are during the matting time, between September 20 and mid-October.


The hunting areas for deer are located in the Pyrenees (AranValley, Luchon, Boumort, according to available hunting licenses)
The fallow deer hunts take place in the Spot valley, in Lleida province, in the middle of the Pyrenean range.
