Monteria - South of Madrid

    Recommended Posts

    So, I was lucky enough to get invited to the Las Juntas Monteria (couple of hours south of Madrid).

    2 days, 1 very long drive each day (over 500 hectares) and approximately 400 beasts (all types of deer, mouflon and boar).

    I’ll try and get some photos up - does anyone know how to reduce the MB size of an iPhone photo? Is there an app?

    Sounds like a perfect break. Looking forward to pics. If you take them using messenger will they not be reduced already?

    Pigeon Controller must have helped you lay them out.

    So, Day 1 I pulled peg 6 and had about 700 metres to cover. 

    My shot of that day was a running boar freehand at 163 m (verified with a rangefinder by a nice Norwegian called Thorne).

    The red marks the tree where I was stationed, and the shot hit the pig about 10m behind where I took the photo from.

    The photo doesn’t show the scale or steepness of the hill - fortunately I only had to walk down that, not up it.

    Looks like some event. I watch a few youtube videos off the back of your post.

    Looks like an amazing experience. What were you shooting and how much lead was required at 163m?

    It's something that interests me, did you practise here and how? Thanks.

    It’s hard to describe the scale of it - a total of 500 dogs were used during the day goes some way of painting the picture.

    I was shooting my Blaser with the .308 barrel in because I wanted the 5 shots. 

    I took out 60 rounds and fired 50 over 2 days.

    I’ve shot the 100 yard running deer at Bisley a few times and I always got on well with it - Shooting clay rabbits is the best technique (depending on range and speed, maintained lead off the nose will get you in the right post code). 

    At the end of the day a whole load of butchermen dressed in white overalls and white wellies descended... it’s not like the carcasses all got rolled into a ditch.
