The homeland of rice is the backdrop to one of the most exciting hunting travel experiences imaginable. Among the latest news from the tour operator Montefeltro as regards the itineraries designed for hunters, there is Italy, to be precise Valle Lomellina which is famous for its rice production. It is no coincidence that they arise in this area of Lombardy (we are located in the province of Pavia) the headquarters of well-known and appreciated companies such as Curtiriso and Gariboldi. For the occasion and taking into account the fact that the Covid-19 has made it necessary to move not too long, the proposal is that of hunting aquatic in Lomellina. The art in question is widespread all over the world and Italy is no exception. To practice it you need a lot of passion, but above all in-depth knowledge. The techniques are really many: it can consist of the most classic aquatic hunting, that is to say that from stalking (in the hut or in the barrel) or through roaming hunting, both in step and in the company of the dog. The experience in Lomellina is unique and the environment can only be considered extraordinary. Among the rice fields of Lomellina there is a hunting oasis of great interest. Montefeltro, in conjunction with the new management - prudent and careful - of a reserve in the Pavia area, offers drives to the ducks of the highest hunting quality. The organized program provides for the smallest detail. After having consumed a rich welcome breakfastin fact, the moment of departure for the stations arrives. There are 12 hunters who can be placed in various strategic points, namely behind barrels and reeds, while the task of the beaters is to move the ducks that hide in the reeds or in the flooded woods. There are not only mallards in this area, but also teals, wigeons, shovels and gadflies who have identified their ideal habitat in the Pavia area. The continuous baiting of corn and the rice fields that surround the area represent a high quality food supply for all these species. To indicate the beginning and the end of the bar, the typical sound of the horn. Between one drive and the next - usually 3 in a day - snacks are offered to allow the recovery of the felled animals and the preparation of the beaters in another area. At the end of the last expedition we return to the hunting lodge for lunch, served in the splendid eighteenth-century farmhouse recently renovated, among hunting trophies and stuffed ducks. Montefeltro's advice is to use a semi-automatic shotgun, an over-and-under or a side-by-side shotgun in 12/20 gauge. with medium chokes and Notox ammunition. The use of a single rifle is allowed and the presence of the loader is not allowed: the hunter must do everything himself for greater satisfaction in carrying out this fascinating hunt. The Lomellina takes shape where land and water fit together like tiles of a huge mosaic. This geometric landscape extends not far from Milan and Pavia, before the Lombard plain gives way to the Piedmontese one. For those who love hunting, there is nothing better than discovering a territory that is still too little talked about.
