    Default Germany

    Hello friends!

    As I said in my introduction a few weeks ago, I hunt in Germany.
    It might be interesting to you what happens in our hunting areas. So i decided to post what happens here around hunting an fishing from time to time.
    Here at my home in the north-west i hunt in a smallgame area and in Brandenburg in easten Germany in a big game area.
    Today, a hunting friend has shot the first buck of the season in our area.
    At this time i was fishing at the lake with a stunning sunset.

    I donīt know if it is ok. But I want to share this short film with you. It was so similar with me as a child. And I think thats the way it should be done!

    This evening I made a short fishing trip.
    First to the pond on my parents farm to catch a few baitfish.
    After half an hour I had enough roach and prussian carp and drove to my favorit spot. A confluence of 2 rivers.
    What can I say... An other half an hour later, I had my first pike of the season.
    Nice 6 pounder.

    After my parents died many years ago, the farm was no longer in use.
    In the past we had cows and grown wheat and corn.
    In this years it was a good live. But for today's conditions, the farm is just too small to live from it.
    The land is leased to other farmers now. Except a meadow with old fruit trees, some forest and 2 fish ponds.
    But my brother still lives there.

    I released her. Because she was still full of eggs.
    Otherwise i like to deep-fry pieces of fillet.

    Hi Richard,

    Sadly no.
    Approx. 15 jears ago, some clubs down the river startet to resettle sea trout in small brooks who flow in this river.
    Unfortunately, some big weirs and power stations prevent the run upstreams. 4 Years ago we saw some large trout under a weir who could not get up. (about 4 meters)
    Now all clubs at the river fighting for fish stairs and other options that they can get upstream.
    But such a things costs a lot of money!
    And the politicians who decide this want to be sure that the trout will rise and spawn permanently.

    Greetings,
    Dirk

    Tonight a fellow hunter called, he have shot a buck. And would spend a beer... or 2... or...
    So i get on the bike and go. It is almost in the neighborhood. Approx. 10 min by bike.
    When I arrived there were already a few hunters.
    And the buck... an absolut stunning atypical, 4-5 year old buck. Nobody have ever seen this buck before.

    The second buck is a roadkill. A typical 6 pointer about 2 years of age.

    We had a few beers and also schnaps.
    A funny evening with a lot of singing talking and fun.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures and stories. You're 1/2 a world away, but doing many of the same stuff we do here. Please keep sharing the stories and pictures as I like seeing how it's done there.

    This is a great thread! German hunting traditions and the regulation of hunting & fishing are very interesting. I love German firearms & the history of the gun trade as well. Please keep the pics & stories coming!
