Studies and projects endorse and demonstrate that survival of the Iberian lynx and Iberian Imperial Eagle is more successfull in hunting farms and grounds, as food is more readily available to them than in reserves managed by the Administration.
Wild red-legged partridge is one of the most esteemed and valued birds for elite hunters from all countries, who choose Spain as hunting trip for its world-renowned birds and landscapes, and thus enjoying one of the most beautiful and engaging hunting driven red-legged partridge shooting party experiences.
Breeding of wild red-legged partridge has aroused great interest among today's society and Spanish and European government alike. Steps have been taken and are underway baring research, testing and scientific studies, funded by Spanish and European government, in which Cacerías Campo de Montiel organization actively participates and has been considered and awarded as one of the best organizations with character that exist today for hunting in Spain.
The main goal these projects seek is to recover the genetic richness of wild red-legged partridge in Spain, as it is the cornerstone of a unique economy for the people living in disadvantaged rural areas, while many studies show that care and breeding of the red-legged partridge induces proliferation of rabbit and hare, being these food for the Iberian Imperial Eagle and the Iberian lynx and other endangered species.
