How come Nikolai and Felix don't go on the hunts too? I guess Joachim prefers agriculture to hunting?

The two aren't mutually exclusive - Joachim hosted a hunt in Gråsten Statsskovdistrikt (state forrest district), closer to Schackenborg, at the fifth of November according to Kongehuset.dk

As to the debate on how hunting is for fun and whatnot, the Danish office for Forestry and Nature have ethical guidelines on hunting.

I translate some of it:
Quote:
All hunting should have a purpose. Hunting shall be more than simply killing animals. Retrieved animals shall be gathered and used.

All hunting shall happen in accordance with the current legislation, and in a manner that is safe, and the game should be killed quickly and effectively, thus avoid suffering.

All hunting shall be done according to a biological reasonable foundation, which ensures that the hunted game only is a part of the natural surplus. Any doubt whatsoever on this, shall be in favour of the animal.

Well, I don't eat red meat and I am about to give up chicken, turkey, lamb, as well as fish starting Jan 1, 2008.

I don't approve of this royal hunt thing; however, I understand that it is a cultural thing -- thus the norm. Furthermore, I do understand that in some countries hunting is used to control the wild animal population.

So, what are you gonna do? I certainly don't approve, but I'm not going to shoot down/lecture my feelings about it to those who do.

I'm not 100% sure, but none of the reports I've seen from the DRF and hunting indicate that they hunt fox, as any sort of common measure. The so-called fox-hunt (Hubertusjagt) that take place in Copenhagen every year: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...tml#post140965
Quote:
Although it’s called a hunt and participants are clad in scarlet riding jackets, the ‘fox’ in this case is symbolised by a pretend fox’s tail which is pinned to the shoulder of one of the leading riders.
Prince Henrik seems to prefer to hunt with the purpose of putting it on the table, as can be seen in his cookbooks.

You are right lyndaW. Foxes are usually shot 1) to control their population and 2) because they are often responsible for disease transmission (rabies, tapeworm).

Thanks for posting these guidelines norwegianne. This is how it should be and I am sure that the DRF will stick to these guidelines since they hunt in public and a scandal could arise (and hopefully does) if they don't act accordingly.

I thought I saw a very dead fox layed-out for everyone to admire among the deer.....perhaps my eyes are not what they use to be. I do realiaze certain animals carry all kinds of problems and they do need to be kept in check. For instance those adorable funny squirrels have fleas, ticks, and possibly rabies the same goes for nutria's and rats and mice.

I think Mary looked amazing, Christian looked very cute and Carina looked great. Frederik & Henrik are a big no no for me. I can't say much about the outfits of the Duke and Duchess of Calabria, because there is't a good picture of their outfits.

Yes that is an appropriate question! We never see them in these hunts!!!!

And also... those images of people admiring dead animals, shocks me. Do people should admire dead animals after a hunt?? That's part of the sport to!! that's very cruel. But O.K...they are royals and hunting is a part of a tradition and tradition speaks higher than other values.

Well i guess they are proud of their catch, I mean who wouldnt be after a day of hunting maybe or maybe not get anything. Ex, when you buy something new, and go home, dont you look at what youve gotten? to me this is the same

No, I think you are rigth LyndaW - I think I saw a fox too in one of the pics (even though I know that my eyes are definitely not what they used to be )

Frederik's outfit - In the fall here, that is a regular outfit as all the hunters congregate before heading out to hunt. Lots and lots of cammo.

Are these camouflage trousers. The one he wore at his solo hunting event looked much more like one, more like a common hunting outfit.

Was Gustav there? I think it's wonderful that Carina is accepted as practically a member of the family, and treated as if she were already Gustav's wife Kudos to the DRF for that :)

I love Henrik's furry cap Christian looks so adorable with his little hood and red coat. Is the hood attached to a sweater? I remember him wearing something similar at last year's hunt.

The RF must be really proud of their "catch" this year. This is the first time I have seen them publish pictures of them with the actual animals on display.
If i remmeber correctly, past pictures have shown the family either coming from or going to the hunt. But I don't ever remember seeing pictures of their catch on display.

Christian is such a little cutie, and is getting bigger by the day, it seems! He was so cute, with the apple in his hand. I'm glad the Mary chose a healthy snack for him; doesn't she do something with healthy eating? I think she said that Christian was already developing a big sweet tooth, back sometime when she was still pregnant. It's good that he's already learning that he should make good choices for snacks, and eat the tasty, but unhealthy things in moderation!

I'm guessing Isabella's a little too young to come out. Maybe we'll see her next year.

I'm really not bothered by the fact that Christian is with the dead animals. I'm not a hunter myself, but I do have tons of family that do, and I've been around dead animals since I was younger than Christian. I don't think that it will cause any "emotional disturbance" unless he was truly upset by them, but he actually seemed to be enjoying himself quite a bit. It's probably just his father's genes in him.

Frederik's pants are horrible, but they're made for hunting, so I'll let him off this time! Henrik's hideous hat, however, that I have wanted to burn for ages and ages, does need to be dealt with!

These pictures with the animals on display have always been seen in papers and magazines here, also when the late king Frederik was the host of these hunting parties.

How strange that the normally lachrimose CPFrederik doesn't exhibit any emotion here!

Yes those are camouflage pants. Here you can get baby clothes, purses etc as well. Not mind kind of pattern but it suits some.
