This year, too, the nicholas hunt took place in the forchheim forestry operation, the oesdorf state hunting district of the bavarian state forestry commission. This involves two hunts in the lower marrow and the adelsdorfer marrow in the oesdorf/wimmelbach area up to the hochstadt county border with an area of 2,000 hectares. Deer and wild boar are hunted during the pressure hunt across the hunting grounds, as required by law.
District leader erich daum buried the approximately 200 hunters, divided into 17 groups, at the starting point, the forecourt at the fire station in wimmelbach. As non-hunting guests of honor, landrat hermann ulm and burgermeister gerd zimmer from hausen delivered short greetings at the starting point.
Stephan keilholz from the forchheim forestry operation of the bavarian state forests and hans dittmann, chairman of the BJV forchheim, took an active part in the pressure hunt.
