What is good to know is that leading hunting lodges fully support such initiatives for the youth to be gradually introduced to hunting, as they will one day, when the parents retire form the activity, take over – and, in turn, become the lodge’s clients and hunters.

But it certainly is an opportunity to experience what hunting is about by looking through the
