Hunting Life at the Schloss

I was invited to stay for a deer hunt at a German castle, and they were by far the most beautiful hunting quarters I've ever visited.

With a hunt like this belongs a history of complex etiquette and tradition, and of course a feeling of decadence. Not everyone might feel at home in this environment, and it certainly forms a contrast to American hunts, but I was welcomed with impeccable hospitality, the decoration was second in beauty only to the natural surroundings, and the socks were fancy indeed.
