    Hi guys,

    First of all, i hope you'll forgive my mistakes. As you imagine, english is not my first language.

    So...i live in the south-west of France, in a town called Bordeaux (Maybe you heard about the wine). I bowhunt since a couple of years, principally the roe deer and the wild hog.

    I have a 60# HOYT ULTRASPORT and a 55# BEAR KODIAK recurve .

    Why am i here and not on a french forum ?

    Because you guys invented that game, and everything we know about bowhunting in France comes from USA. I have everything to learn and i'm very happy to join you. :)

    Thank you all !!

    This is my playground :

    The Roe deer (Capreolus)
    [​IMG]
    We have a lot of them. They are very nice to hunt especially during the reproduction in the summer.

    The Elaph deer (Cervus elaphus)
    [​IMG]
    A rare game. Only a few (and rich : About 800$ for one animal) people can hunt him with a bow.

    And the hog (Sus Scrofa)
    [​IMG]
    Ennemy of the farmers, he's wild and fast. He defends himself if wounded. My favourite game.

    It's nice to share that with you :)

    Welcome to the site! I am Polish so I know a lot about the hunting and traditions in Europe. I hope to go to Europe one day myself and be able to bow hunt.
