Stalking season takes place during three main periods between the 1st of June and the 28th of February. During the first part of the season, i.e. between 1 June and the general start of the season, only roe deer and wild boar may be hunted. As these animals are subject to hunting plans, stalking is only possible with the agreement of the hunting plan custodians. Each hunter must be in possession of the hunting plan or a certified copy of the prefectoral decree allocating the plan.
In the second part of the season, from 1st September to the general opening, the stag is added to the list of huntable species under the same conditions as for the wild boar and the roe deer. Then, in the third part of the season, from the opening to the closing, all three species are huntable under the same conditions.
