Mauritius - A New Hunting Destination
This island nation off the coast of Eastern Africa is emerging as a new destination to hunt free-range Rusa deer. The deer were introduced by the Dutch in 1639 and number in the thousands today. Mauritius offers hunting and big game fishing alongside Five Star beach resorts that will please non-hunting spouses and kids. Tourism is the country's main industry, followed by telecommunications services. The infrastructure is modern and the official language is English. Following are some photographs of the island, and what it has to offer. For the full story on hunting on Mauritius, see the October issue of The Hunting Report.

Exceptional stags are available for hard-hunting and fortunate hunters.
The tropical forests on Mauritius are thick, providing enough cover that hunters can stalk within 200 to 100 yards for a shot.
Besides Rusa deer hunting, Mauritius also offers wild boar, which are quite abundant.
Non-hunting spouses and families can enjoy the amenities offered at the various beach resorts on Mauritius.
