Visible Game, Valuable Game

_1030051 PfefferleStefan Pfefferle is a professional hunter from Germany’s Allgäu region, responsible for overseeing an unusual territory: despite active hunting, visitors are able to observe the wild animals in their natural environment.

In a 14-minute film for the hunting clients of the Austrian Federal Forests, Pfefferle explains how he has made this possible while still maintaining his mandated hunting quota. He has also produced a document explaining his methodology as part of a scientific thesis for the Vienna University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences.
