Hunting season is in the autumn some time. Not exactly sure when but something like mid september to mid november, though I might be a bit out.

The hunter's use dogs and they do not always treat them well. Carcases of dogs have been found tethered and shot at the end of the season and this practice has been denounced by OKAPI, the dog charity. They are trying to chip all dogs to prevent this barbaric practice.

On the bright side the hunters did work together to capture and vacinate something like 1300 rabbits.

There is clay pigeoun shooting on the island, as I have seen posters for competitions, but these seem to be local competitions and therefore organised and run in Spanish in locations that all the locals would know from the name, but might not be easy to find.

let me know if you are coming so I can tell Filbert to hide for the week. :)
