An average hunter can expect 200-300 cartridges per day with 2-3 cartridges to 1 bird on average. The most challenging of all is African turtle dove and shooting is organised in the evening. It is plenty of fun for all the team and the party has enough time in the morning to try wild quail shooting and in the evening there is an also available high wild duck flight for some of us that are keen on trying everything that is on offer during the season.
European Quail hunting: We organise two walked up drives per day for teams of 6-9 guns. Thus, a total should be around 20-30 birds per gun per day. Morning and evening quail drives are a memorable experience, as you will hunt quail at sunrise and sunset each day to avoid the heat of the day. Morning drive is 70-80% of all daily bags and many groups miss evening drive going instead for high volume dove shooting during afternoon or high wild duck flights in the evening.
Support: Our team provide all sorts of trained dogs for flushing and retrieving the game. If you would like to hire a shotgun during your stay we will provide you with one for 10 Euros per day. If you would like to buy cartridges locally we are happy to assist. Serbian standards require you to use cartridges with pellets up to 2,5mm (UK size 7.5 or 8).
Regulations and Safety: During Quail shooting over pointers the Guns move very slowly in a straight line across the stubble fields. While walking you should check every few seconds to see if you are in line. Once a pointer flushes game, only the gun closest to the dog will be able to fire. Swinging the gun through the line is dangerous and forbidden. Our guides have the right to exclude you from shooting if your behaviour is dangerous to others.
