Partridge hunt

Partridge hunting is becoming more and more popular in Hungary each year, the demand for this type of hunting is continuously increasing. Hunting is mostly done in smaller groups, with over-dog shooting with the help of skilled Hungarian pointing dogs, in linear driven hunts. The beauty of partridge shooting lies in their peculiar flight and the hunter adapting to it with fast and secure hands.

Grey partridge (Perdix perdix)

Partridge hunt

Partridges originally used to live in woody plains and some swampy areas, but they gradually transformed into field birds, or even into a species following agricultural farmland. From the end of the 19th century until the 1930s about 300,000 partridges have been moved from the Carpathian-basin and the Czech Republic to Canada and the United States in order to populate the broken prairies and substitute the prairie-chicken that was extinct. The settlement has been successful, the partridge settled on the North-American continent, where the species is still referred to as “Hungarian partridge”.

The once legendary abundance in partridges already passed away in Hungary, but more and more areas are reaching excellent results with artificial breeding.

Partridge hunting in Hungary

Partridge hunting is becoming more and more popular in Hungary each year, the demand for this type of hunting is continuously increasing. Hunting is mostly done in smaller groups, with over-dog shooting with the help of skilled Hungarian pointing dogs, in linear driven hunts. In some hunting areas the partridges are placed along with the pheasants in the middle or end of the summer to the agricultural land segmented by woody areas, this way the autumn pheasant and partridge rough shooting can be an unforgettable experience for hunters. The beauty of partridge shooting lies in their peculiar flight and the hunter adapting to it with fast and secure hands. The partridge pack alarmed by the still pointing dog takes up as fast as the wind in a relatively low arch.  The pack does not fly away very far, so during one partridge rough shooting it’s possible to alarm the same pack several times. Hunters accompanied by dogs will be the most pleased by partridge huntings, since the pointing dog will persistently point to this kind of bird, so the hunter has enough time to get into the best shooting position, and the harmonious teamwork of man and dog will be rewarded by success.
