With the O/U combination gun in the „a little of everything“ area
Andreas „Andi“ Maurer has been hunting since childhood, always with his family: previously with his father and brothers – today with his wife, children and friends in the family owned hunting grounds. These are located in the natural reserve Swabian-Franconian forest.
In the deep woods the Maurers have a little hunting cabin which has been refitted for weekends and children with a lot of charm and a little comfort. Here, close to Schwäbisch Hall, the family manages a typical German “a little of everything” area. This influences his choice of his favourite tool – the over-and-under combination gun B3. Andreas Maurer: “This is a good compromise out of “always having the right equipment with you” and “light-weight and handy”. Next to hares and foxes, there is a lot of wild boar and roe deer. Also crow hunting is another alternative in this wonderful landscape. They are hunting on fields, meadows and in the woods: in the planes, but also in the blades, how the rugged grooves are called, which are cut into the Keuperberg land by rivers during floods. Andi Maurer: “Hunting here is still authentic. We are living in the middle of the hunting area, in the middle of nature and we can go hunting whenever we want. ”
