    Shooting in France

    Due to a wedding this summer, I will be in France for a week around the 28th May in Mougins.

    My uncle and I are looking to fit in a days shooting. We arnt too bothered about species or trophys, so please get in contact if you can advise anything.

    Cheers, Tom

    I don't suppose you like fishing? It's just that as far as I'm aware, it's the close season for just about everything in May.

    Don't forget that you will need your French Fishing Licence too! Seriously! My last one was in the early 2000s. You will need a photograph of yourself. Most rivers are public and I forget something about Category 1 and Category 2. Night fishing in general is, still I think, illegal.

    Chevreuil (roe) opens 1st of June. Les Alps Maritimes are a beautiful area. I can't help much.

    If you shoot in an enclosed area in france you can shoot wild boar all year, you may be able to find a fenced estate in the area.
