Highlights of Hunt:So many: The beauty of Ireland. The professionalism of everyone associated with Celtic Fieldsports. The number of game animals. The good humor of all. The mountain hiking.

Why?Exciting, challenging, hunting with a high probability of harvesting animals. No high fences in the Kerry Mountains. Also, short air flights and a good bang for your hunting dollars
