On Saturday 17th of November, hunting club Soestdijk oranized a ‘slipjacht’. Castle Mheer opened their estate to the public that day, so the guests and locals could behold this traditional sport. A slipjacht is similar to the traditional fox hunting in England. It is not allowed in The Netherlands to hunt this way on foxes, so instead of following a fox, they trace the smell (a particular route has been mapped out by the organisation).
It was always a big dream for me to see a slipjacht. It contains history and tradition. Can’t wait to see more!
