San Bruno estate has been a family property for several generations with more than 14,000 acres in Castilla La Mancha Province, where both big game and partridge hunts are offered. It is characterized by its typical Mediterranean forest of holm oaks, olive trees and crops where various game species coexist such as deer, fallow deer, mouflon, roe deer and wild boar.
The best option is to travel to Madrid, and there our staff will pick up you and will help you with all the necessary paperwork with weapons. The hunting area is two hour and an a half minutes by car, next to the village ¨El Viso del Marques¨. It is an enjoyable trip and on first level roads.
The centuries old protocol and traditions of driven bird shooting are kept alive at San Bruno. Fifty-five beaters marshalled by their horse-mounted leader begin driving towards the ten shooters, spaced in a line 40 meters apart. Each shooter is accompanied by two “secretaries”, one responsible for quickly reloading the fine side-by-side or over/under smoothbores and the other keeping accurate count of the birds downed. As the beaters draw near, birds break from the cover and fly erratically over the line of hunters. It is not uncommon for an individual to kill 50 partridge on a single drive. At the end of each drive an army of black and yellow Labrador Retrievers are loosed to reclaim each of the downed partridges.
Watching the three dozen plus dogs work is nearly as much fun as the actual shooting. Between the second and third drive, a formal lunch or “taco” is presented in the field. Fine china and silver atop a linen table cloth compliment the extravagant array of cheeses, meats and casseroles. Of course, one’s thirst is quenched with fine Spanish wine.
