The Flight Game
Sedentary birds are very familiar with their own biotope. Lively and clever, they play with the maquis and relief to gain speed and height. You will be part of a high-flying hunt within a small team or a larger group from 6 to 12 people.Discover in pictures

Water means life. The river, the ground labored by farmers, cleaning consistently the scrubland, maintaining the hedges, the shrubs and the bay trees. All those ingredients make the migratory birds coming and standing by here throughout the season, like a stopover in an Eden.
The variety is visible: mallards’ ducks, teals, snipes, pigeons, woodcocks, thrushes and blackbirds, quails and larks. Along the hedges and olive groves, hidden in the gorse, crushing the marshland, in the flooded plains, traveling-up Ortolo river, the hunter appreciates this area of multiple sites and beautiful encounters. And then, like an icing on the cake: the feeling of wandering in a privileged paradise, secluded, in the heart of the nature, what the Corsican soul is all about.
Depending on the migration, some hunting days could offer you large quantities of game.
The Duck Pass Shooting

The Migratory Hunting board would not be complete without duck, mallard going without saying, but also teal or again wildfowl. Here is the best way to end up a hunting day on a high.
The ducks pass shooting in La Vallée de l’Ortolo is otherworldly. You are on the alert around the river mouth, the backwash as background sound, the sea is never too far, you face up to the Corsican maquis.
At first, the ducks of the river, disturbed by the beaters, will appear one by one and the first shotgun blasts will resound. Then, to cap it all, the lift of the swamp comes. The ducks flit around, gain altitude, turn again to give you a chance before reaching the sea. Here is the fantastic spectacle we would like to assist every single day.
