Caza De Jabali is wild boar hunting in Spanish/Catalan and the purest form of that can be found near my village in the northeastern part of Spain near the border between Aragon and Catalonia.
Arén is the gateway to more than 250,000 acres of wild boar land, wild and savage distant area controlled by a sheep herding family in town. Hunters and VIP’s from all over the world, Europe, North America and Africa come here to participate in this very exceptional hunt for wild boars, a hunt that dates back many generations.
The whole area is divided up in 30 to 35 hunting areas where hunting is only allowed once every year, the areas are wild and savage and the wild boars live completely free, they are not feed, nursed or fenced in, they are free to roam all over the place and they do.
It is not an easy hunt, you need to be an excellent hunter and marksman to meet the challenges of the geography and the form of hunting. You are on the ground in terrain with the boars, you are not standing/sitting in a hunting tower, you are on the ground together with the boars and they can come very close. The dogs will drive the boars by your post, it is hunting in its purest form, it is “Batida”, an exclusive Pyreneean form of hunting.
You will arrive Friday night and leave Monday, but if you want to discover and enjoy the area you are welcome to come before and stay longer. Besides hunting there are numerous other things to do depending on the season, excellent downhill skiing, white river rafting, hiking, fishing, kayaking and much much more. You can also enjoy the excellent cuisine of the Pyrenees, there are several First Class and Three Star restaurants across the Pyrenees.
Yearly we shoot around 2000 wild boars and typically each hunter gets 2 to 3 boars in a weekend. (All of our hunts are over 2 days in the weekend). It is not unusual to get 5 or 6 and you are not charged for how many, for the size or for the trophies.
We will provide all the necessary permits etc.
Saturday and Sunday are full hunting days from sunrise to sunset. We are in the terrain all the time and you will get a bag of sandwiches, snacks and refreshments when we rejoin in the morning. In the evening we will serve gourmet dinners combined with excellent Spanish wines. The nights are spent on the local Hotel Domenc located 1 minute away from the bar/restaurant and meeting place.
