Our advice

Once on site, locate abandoned swamps or orchards, deciduous forests, mixed forests, and especially their clearings and edges. You will have a good chance of finding this game, which moves mainly at dusk or dawn. Its territory extends over an area that can range from 20 to 150 hectares and it prefers coniferous forests in winter where it meets in herds, tracing paths between trees.
