Mauritius: Deer hunt officially opened




The Java deer hunting season is open since yesterday Sunday, June 1, 2014 in 72 hunts listed in Mauritius and in the heart of primary forests.
 
During three months in full austral winter, hunters will relentlessly track down the game and should shoot some 12,000 deer this year according to figures contemplated by the society of hunters of Mauritius, as indicated in the Mauritian newspaper L'Express.
 
"This figure is almost the same than in previous years. But performance will be superior in terms of weight because favourable climatic conditions made that the game is bigger," said Frédéric Merle, president of the society of hunters of Mauritius.
