Bukkejagtens sidste timer…

På et tidspunkt i de fleste jægeres liv bliver man nødsaget til at ringe til en schweisshundeføre – det har jeg vidst siden jeg fik jagttegnet, men nok aldrig troet det måtte være mig, der skulle ringe… Read More

Thoughts and comments from a hunter’s wife – Day 5/5

This day began at 4 am with a very different kind of off road spot and stalk for some extraordinary roebucks and turned into a hilarious  study of the Slovakian language. They woke us up after nearly two and a half hour of sleep and we found out that after gutting and cutting the wild boars, they had gone hunting for more wild boars , but without any success, and hadn’t been sleeping at all.

Thoughts and comments from a hunter’s wife – Day 4/5

I am convinced that these 24 hours will be filed in my long term memory as one of the craziest days of my life. At least a top three! I wanted to keep the blogging short, but it is hard when the time you are awake keeps getting extended and more action packed for each day… but I will try. Read More

Thoughts and comments from a hunter’s wife – Day 3/5

Hunting in Slovakia is not a “walk in the park”! It may look like it, but all we do is eat, sleep (a little), hunt, repeat!

Our hosts have made a full program for the days we are spending here. While we take a break and a nap they have meetings and attend work for a few hours… I have no idea how they are doing this! Read More

Thoughts and comments from a hunter´s wife – Day 2/5

 Monday I left our two teenage kids to drive 15 hours with my husband to spend several days hunting, which is something I have paid so little attention to during the 2 decades we have been married. I am so outside my comfort zone that I even forgot to bring my passport. And my sweet husband decided not to mention anything before we were at the border. Just for the fun of it… But of course he thought of everything. Read More

Thoughts and comments from a hunter’s wife – Day 1/5

This week I am going seriously hunting for the first time in my life.  Well… I will only be photo shooting while my husband will do the real stuff.

Seen from the perspective of someone who doesn’t quite share the passion, hunting is a really expensive and time-consuming hobby. There is also a lot of things connected to the hunting world that I don’t understand, and often times I end up laughing and making jokes about those things. Just to mention: the silencers for his rifles always remind me of the splash guns the kids used to play with in summer. When I see three serious grown-up men walking in their outfits with their splash guns I can’t help but giggle. None of these jokes are meant to be patronizing (or “matronizing”).

Vinterhygge i værkstedet

Vintertid er for mig tid til de projekter, man har haft stående i bl.a. våbenskabet, men ikke fået gjort noget ved i løbet af jagtsæsonen. De mørke aftner inviterer nærmest til eftersyn af våben, og til at få trofæer på plade. Sidste vinter kastede jeg mig ud i en større renovering af et side-by-side haglgevær, og du kan læse om den genstridige og læringsrige proces herunder.

Test af dieset fra Triebel guntools

Denne test og tekst er udført af Arne Jørgensen fra Bording. Jeg spurgte Arne om at teste og skrive hans ærlige mening og det har han gjort fuldt tilfredsstillende.

Under en jagt, hvor Michael og jeg selv var blandt deltagerne, kom det på tale at jeg skulle prøve et dieset fra Treibel, Treibel, tænkte jeg, det lyder tysk og dyrt, men ellers kunne jeg ikke lige huske at have mødt navnet før. Da jeg kom hjem, var jeg ved at se lidt nærmere på det, og kunne se at jeg havde set det før, og forudsigelsen var korrekt det er tysk og dyrt. Det var derfor med stor spænding, at jeg modtog pakken med diesettet. Da jeg åbnende pakken kom den fine kuffert med diesettet frem, og det så godt ud. Indholdet af kufferten skuffede da heller ikke, de enkelte dies var rigtigt fin forarbejdet, der var ikke noget at sætte en finger på. Read More

Mit Svenske jagteventyr

En forlænget weekend i det svenske med en ny jagtkammerat Henric Lindh har måske resulteret i en ny passion for mig. Mere specifikt skulle vi på jagt både efter urfugl og tjur godt 8 timers kørsel fra Varberg, samt senere en fælles drivjagt lidt længere sydpå efter både dåvildt og vildsvin. De første dages jagt skulle foregå som topjagt hvor man bevæger sig rundt i et sneklædte landskab og skyder fuglene når de sidder i trætoppene og suger solens stråler til sig eller tager bestik af situationen når hunden har jaget den op i træet.
