The Island of Mauritius Rusa Deer Hunting & Big Game Fishing #302

The Island of Mauritius Rusa Deer Hunting & Big Game Fishing #302

This outfitter has the exclusive address for those looking for an authentic and unique experience of both hunting, big game fishing and family excursions in Mauritius. They offer packages including accommodations, hunting and big game fishing, as well as daily rates for both activities. The outfitter personally takes care of you from the moment of your arrival at the airport and for the duration of your stay. And he controls the two largest hunting areas on the Island; one being 12,000 acres with an estimated 10,000 Rusa on it. The other is about 8,000 acres with about 4,000 Rusa deer on it.

Jimmy-Yanogliou-at-letoile.-35-x-23-9-300x225  There are two types of hunting offered in Mauritius:

  • The first is the driven hunt which comprises of approximately forty Mauritian hunters, a hundred hunting dogs, and around forty beaters. The hunt is then followed by the traditional lunch.
  • The second is a Walk & Stalk hunt with rifle or bow and arrow. In both cases you will be personally guided and advised by our outfitter.

Two exceptional hunting grounds are utilized. The first, located in the West, is the largest of the island, with its 12,000 acres, and is reminiscent of the African Savannah. It contains about 10,000 rusa and lots of wild hogs.

The second area, to the East of the island, is the birthplace of the Rusa deer, which landed in Mauritius in the 17th century. Covering an area of 8,000 acres, this area produces the most beautiful trophies of the island thanks to its luxurious and abundant vegetation. It is thicker, and very forested and has about 4,000 Rusa deer and many wild hogs.

deer-hunting-mauritius2-300x188  The Rusa deer available in Mauritius Island were re-introduced from Java island in 1639 by the Dutch people for the purpose of livestock. Only a few years after, a cyclone broke the fence and the animals returned to the wild. Since that time the Rusa deer population has exploded demographically, reaching nearly 60,000 animals, and has become an important part of the local wildlife.

Fully grown male Rusa deer weigh 150 – 180 Kg ( 330- 400 pounds). Like all the deer tribes, only the males have large well shaped horns. The norm is a three point per side rack. Horn sizes are normally 30’ to 34” but can reach to 36” plus. They are incredibly heavy and dense when one picks them up to hold them. The males use their horns during rut. The male loses its’ antlers in mid-December. They are fully regrown by late May. The deer’s horns due to their density and heft, means they are very dangerous for its rivals during a fight. The animal’s throat presents as an almost white, well-marked towel. The rut takes place from mid-July till the end of August.

The principal advantages of this species are their extraordinary sense of smell, sight and hearing and the perfect command it has in the forest. Being a very intelligent animal, hunting it becomes even more enthralling. It is also one of the most challenging deer species to hunt. All the hunters of the world who have been able to pursue it do agree on that point! And the mass, length and symmetry make for a beautiful mount.

Client Comments: “We were looking for a holiday location with warm water, colorful fish, good food and some hunting for myself. We booked a 10-day trip to the island of Mauritius. We had a sensational hotel with a beautiful beach, excellent food, found the island very interesting and very adaptable to our 5- and 7-year-old kids and had a marvelous time. I did hunt Rusa on walk and stalk and the outfitter guided me personally. We shot a great stag out of a herd of at least 25 stags after we passed on two other herd stags that he found not big enough. The handling of the trophy was good and I was able to take my trophy as skull mount home when we left. We also went on a fishing trip and I managed to land a Dorado and two Barracudas. We are very happy that we did this trip and we are grateful for the personal care and hospitality from start to finish. We highly recommend this adventure and outfitter and I am happy to refer my friends and clients.” Christian.

“Mauritius was my 35th hunting trip and it was one of the best. The hunt was a real experience in a paradise area. The game was very plentiful and hunting a great memory. Even the big game fishing for marlin and other species was very well. We caught Dorado, Tuna, Bonito, very successful. We had a great experience with whales and we are sure to fish again on our next visit with you. Mauritius is a dream. We came as guests and went as friends. We’ll be back.” Thomas & Berni from Germany / Bavaria.

Accommodations include your choice of 6 hotels and guest houses each with an exquisite setting and tropical views overlooking the pools, gardens and ocean.
