Guns & ammunition
We strong recommend to use our rental gun service for shotguns & rifles. We have prepared a selection of fine guns and rifles perfectly adjusted and tuned to enjoy the game as if they were your own weapons. Cartridge bags an another hunting staff will be also provided by us. This recommendation is specially oriented to those hunters who come from U.S and other distant countries.
European Firearms Pass
In case you want to come with your sporting firearms to Spain you will have to acquire a European Firearms Pass. These can be requested from the Firearms Officer at your local police station. The application must be done in writing and has to contain your shotgun certificate number, serial number, manufacturer and caliber of any guns you may wish to travel with. Please note: This can take up to 28 days to process so please leave plenty of time.
Upon your arrival at the Airport the guns should be delivered to the local police force. One of our representatives will meet you at the airport to help with to paperwork and clearing the guns with the local police.
Insurance, Licences & Permits
It’s a requirement in Spain to have valid insurance and a licence or permits to shoot in Spain. We will manage for you these documents. Please note: we will require a copy of your passport and European Firearms (unexired!!) 3 weeks before you travel to ensure that your entry in to Spain goes as smoothly as possible. This is required for all the party members that will be shooting.
International flights /Arrival / Visa
You have to manage the International flights to Spain. If you are travelling to Spain as a resident from within another EU Country you will be required to have a valid passport but will not require a visa. If you are coming from outside the EU please check with the Spanish Embassy about visa requirements.
Hunting Seasons & Climate
The general hunting season in Spain runs in general from September until March. Then the Roebuck season is opened from May until October. Normally during these hunting months the weather in the regions we will hunt and stay is normally clear and sunny throughout the day but it can be rather cold with frost at the sunrise (especially in January and February). We recommend check the weather forecasts a few days before coming.
Clothing and Equipment
There is no fixed dress code in the lodges and hotels. Guests should wear what they feel most comfortable in, but for the hunters, please ensure that it is green, olive or brown. We suggest good jackets, hunter boots, hunter shoes, wool socks, lambwool sweaters, comfortable trousers, gloves, glasses. Gore-tex hunting clothes are highly recommended. Also we advise to bring casual and evening wears for the tourist days.
If you want to have your trophy game, we can manage with our taxidermist service all the process until you receive your trophy at home safely. It will take around 6 months, depending on the type of trophy.
Photographic & Video memorabilia
If you want to have an unforgettable memory about your hunting & torism trip in Spain with your guest group, we are happy to offer you a professional service that can make for you a nice photo & video book with the best moments.
