04/29/2013 JAGEN UND FISCHEN in Augsburg continues its road to success
According to Managing Director of Messe Augsburg Gerhard Reiter, the results of the latest visitor and exhibitor survey speak for themselves: "The consistently positive feedback confirms our commitment as Southern Germany's no. 1 trade fair to provide an even higher quality offering the upcoming year for our exhibitors and visitors from far beyond the borders of Bavaria and Swabia." JAGEN UND FISCHEN will take place for the third time from 16 to 19 January, 2014 in the halls of Messe Augsburg. This year, exhibitors can benefit from committing early with an early-bird discount.
Facts and figures convince
Taking place early in the year, JAGEN UND FISCHEN will continue to be the first trade fair to start off the season, which is frequented by hunters, fishers and nature lovers on the look-out for valuable information, the very latest products and expert dialogs. 200 exhibitors from 12 countries delighted more than 21,000 fairgoers in January 2013, who - according to Peter Beer, exhibitor and initiator of the collective booth of the company Waffen Beer as well as the Used Weapons Show - even made it all the way from Switzerland and Southern Tyrol. The positive further development of the fair commended by Beer will continue: The flexible and competent trade fair team, whose service and expert advice satisfied nearly 90 percent of the exhibitors, is hard at work on the expansion of the fields of hunting dogs, fly fishing and boats as well as the expansion of the off-road vehicle sector.
The versatile supporting program consisting of special shows, hunter and fishing forums, fashion shows, birds of prey presentations, an off-road vehicle course, performances by folk groups and hunting-horn blowers delighted visitors and exhibitors alike. In 2014, the fair will once again provide plenty of variety, with renowned and seasoned experts from all sectors attending the forums, and providing the latest in fish and game delicacies. 87 percent of the visitors had a good to very good overall impression of the fair and 86 percent would certainly or probably return. A proof that JAGEN UND FISCHEN has established its reputation as a popular trade fair.
89 percent of the exhibitors rated the atmosphere at the last JAGEN UND FISCHEN with a good to excellent and 90 percent gave the same ratings to the fair's state-of-the-art building services. Backed by these figures, the decision to participate again in 2014 is surely an easy one, and we are offering for the very first time a five-percent early-bird discount, with the same pricing structure for all stand types as before. Those wishing to make use of the discount must submit their binding registration by August 15, 2013 to our project management. Early registrations make it easier for our trade fair team to plan the hall arrangements in line with participants' wishes, as well as the early development of PR measures, such as visitor brochures and media communication - all benefits that Messe Augsburg would like to pass on to make a positive impression for its exhibitors.

12/12/2012 JAGEN UND FISCHEN - From A as in Angling to Z in Zoom Binoculars
From A as in Angling to Z in Zoom Binoculars
The varied programme highlights of the JAGEN UND FISCHEN trade fair which will be opening its doors in Augsburg from the 17th to the 20th January 2013, leaves nothing to be required. Not only hunters and anglers come here, but nature lovers and outdoor specialists come too to find out what is new and they really do get their money’s worth too when familiarising themselves with the new products available. All sorts of workshops, a track for cross-country vehicles, as well as up-to-date information about cormorant management in Bavaria awaits the visitors. Gerhard Reiter, managing director of Messe Augsburg, is confident that this positive development is just the beginning of a long history of success, made possible by working together with committed associates.
At the stand of the Landesfischereiverbandes Bayern e.V. there is information available on the risks threatening the German fish stocks resulting from the ever more popular water power, since in the meantime there is highly technical industrial plant located not only along the major rivers but even on small streams, which with their turbines often make the migration of fish a fatal undertaking for them. For example, of 10,000 migrating spawn eels from the Obermain river, with a conservative estimated mortality rate of 20 per cent per power station, only five reach the Rhine, since they have to traverse 34 water power stations on this journey which is essential to their survival. Even the trout, which was voted Fish of the Year in 2013 is hindered in many places by barrage weirs with locks, dams and power stations on its journeys into the spawning grounds. Two of these fine fellows, the river trout and the lake trout, all of which are sadly under threat in their natural environment, are presented by fish specialists in aquaria.
The joint model environmental project managed by the environmental and agricultural management for cormorant management on flowing waters is presented at the stand run by the fish advisors for Swabia, which is running at the Bavarian Regional Office of the Environment. The projects covers the Mindel and Schmutter rivers and its objective is to develop effective methods for scaring cormorants. "From our perspective there has already been an increase in the mutual appreciation by all the parties involved and here I include anglers, hunters and conservationists, thanks to this pilot project. The scaring campaigns already conducted to date on the pilot waterways have already produced a beneficial effect ", is what Dr Oliver Born, fish adviser for Swabia, said in support of the tasks of the people responsible for the cormorants.
Used guns show and 3-D bow simulator
In addition to a used weapon show with about 100 hunting guns from the Beer company, knowledgeable advisors from well-known gun-makers such as Blaser, Mauser and Sauer present their range of new guns on a joint stand covering 200 square metres. JAGEN UND FISCHEN is also well set up for gunsights. In addition to Leica and Swarowski, in 2013 Carl Zeiss Sports Optics GmbH will also be putting on a display for the first time in Augsburg. The skilled craftsmen from the gunsmiths in Ferlach will be showing off their precision work with artistically engraved hunting guns.
The 3D bow simulator really is a first in the world. It will be presented at JAGEN UND FISCHEN by the team of the Bogenzeit archery centre in Paderborn. This real-time simulator has been developed in collaboration with the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences. Four cameras film the sequence of movements and sensors on the bow provide the computer with additional information. It is aimed as a beamed image. The integral damper system prevents the arrow from actually being released. The team are only too happy for you to try out the simulator – with assistance from the team of course.
Cross-country vehicle test tracks
The cross-country vehicle track in the open air will put the wind in your hair and a rush of adrenalin for both drivers and spectators. Bridges, AWD sections to demonstrate the advantages of axles with differential, as well as a stretch of track with an angled cross section provide a genuine Off-Road experience. The exciting test tracks one which one wheel or the other may leave the ground and the steepness of the bridge incline appear to be downright impossible to traverse, show the advantages of four-wheel drive vehicles and you can buy them at the trade fair from the exhibitors and test drive them under supervised conditions.
Manifold support programme
Workshops laid on by angling experts, top speakers on hunting and fishing, hunting fashion shows, displays with practical tips for cooking game and fish, displays with hunting dogs as well as the falconry display in the open air, are just a small selection from the multi-faceted supporting programme at JAGEN UND FISCHEN. Folk dances in beautiful folk costume, the popular bugle-blowers ensemble and the special shows put on by the affiliated associations on hunting, and fishing round off the wide range of exhibitors and their attractive displays to see.
In addition to this, at 9.30 on 18 January well-known scientists and individuals with practical experience will be discussing the situation of roe deer at the Roe Deer Symposium organised by the Bavarian Hunting Association. Entry will be by registration only. Tickets available from firstname.lastname@example.org (Cost 20.00 Euro).

11/23/2012 JAGEN UND FISCHEN 2013 - The future lies in Augsburg
JAGEN und FISCHEN 2013
The future lies in Augsburg
The exhibition JAGEN UND FISCHEN from January 17th – 20th 2013 gains more and more significance in Augsburg after a successful start in January 2012. Well known gun manufacturers like Mauser and Sauer will exhibit together with Leica and Swarovksi for the very first time at JAGEN UND FISCHEN 2013.
From lyric to hightech to loden
The hunter’s forum in hall 5 offers a big variety of lectures for its audience. For
example, there will be four poets from the Poets Circle of the BJV who will present the yearbook 2012 with the title “Nicht allein der Beute wegen +” (“Not only because of the prey +”). This is the first book of all ten authors. Spokesman of the poet circle is Mr. Hans H. Milles, who thinks poems are still up-to-date, because they express real experiences, deep thoughts and unique impressions in rhymed or unlinked verses very contemplatively.
Whether chamois, sows, billy-goats or roasters, Konrad Esterl has hunted them all and is one of the most multifaceted figures of the Bavarian hunting party. He was Germany’s youngest game master and always an advocate for the sustainable use of game. In Augsburg he will enthuse his audience with his lecture on bait and callhunting and this not only because he is capable to do the call of a deer in absolute perfection.
Loden or modern functional clothing, which offers more comfort for the hunters? The company “Jagdhund” will rise this discussion twice a day at the Show Stage of thehunter’s forum and will therefore present its revolutionary concepts of loden manufacturing.
At the hunters movie theatre you can watch exciting adventures on the big screen. Besides classic movies such as “Hunting Impresssions” and “The chamois black and brown” from Heribert Sendlhofer, there will also be the new German setting “Drive hunts on sows” of the famous Swedish dog handler und filmmaker Mikale Tham. In Heiko Schwartz’s movie “Hunting Paradise” one will be able to see hunting scenes of Rusa-deers, Java-pigs and pheasants. The movie was filmed on the island Mauritius, which is so far almost unknown as a hunting paradise.
Game scenes to look at
The Hunter’s Association of Augsburg will show diorama with exclusive preserved animals and spectacular wild life scenes in a natural environment, which will surely not only fascinate children. In this part of the exhibition there will also be an exciting hidden object game on a nature adventure trail for the youngest visitors of the trade fair. The special show offers an inside view into the diverse tasks that hunters nowadays have, such as the design of the habitats of wild animals, prevention of damage caused by game in agricultural and forested land as well as in traffic or practicing nature conservation. In the so called “living workshops” traditional craftsmanship from metal-gravers, knife makers and taxidermists to tanners will elate all visitors.
Realistic hunting experiences will be offered at the shooting gallery. Sows in a
thicket or hunting a flying duck, digital hunting scenes, they all offer training hand over fist. Next to it there will be the hunting school of the Hunter’s Association of Augsburg, which will present interesting information about a hunter’s training. One of the duties of their young hunters is e.g. the organization of a Nature and Forest Adventure Day especially for schools and nursery schools. Hunting in its today’s characteristic is more sustainable with the treatment of nature and is supported by every person of every occupational group. The “Hunting Dog School Schmuttertal” will present its comprehensive courses on dog training. The popular competition “Blatten” (whistling) will be held on Saturday 19 January 2013. The finale of the best whistlers starts at 2 p.m. on the Show Stage. There will be attractive prices for the winners.
The topic weapons came up a bit short in 2012. Now JAGEN UND FISCHEN has
well-known manufactures on board such as Mauser and Sauer. Together with Leica and Swarovski they will exhibit there latest products on their pavilion together with “Waffen Beer”. Additionally there will be a second hand weapon sale on the 200 sqm big stand area with about 100 hunting weapons of Waffen Beer. At this stand you will also find “K&K Premium Jagd”, a famous provider of exclusive hunting trips, as well as the company Outfox, which has brought up a new dimension of hunting clothes that made it almost impossible for game to smell humans. All companies will be present with their experts. “For us as exhibitors, the future lies in Augsburg”, Peter and Josef Beer position themselves.
Ticket price is 8.50 Euro per Person, children under 15 and dogs are free of
admission. The members of the following associations will receive a reduced fare of 7.50 Euro: Bayerischer Jagdverband e.V., Jägervereinigung Augsburg e.V., Fischereiverband Schwaben e.V., Jagdgebrauchshundeverein Augsburg e.V.

The broad diversified offerings for further learning in the two forums for fishers and hunters in the conference center as well as in the hunter hall offer presentations from different areas from Thursday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 17:00. For example, Torsten Ahrens is presenting trends, innovations and valuable information about fishing predators. The specifics of Norway’s fishery grounds in relation to the sun, moon, and tides, fishing for Blue Marlin, Iceland, as well as spectacular drills are contained in his multi-media presentations. A workshop, where in addition to rolls, rods and lines, also lures and tying diverse predator rig gear, belongs to the repertoire of this well known predator fish expert. The speaker Benedikt Götzfried dedicates himself to the topic of surface lures and with it, the spectacular style of lure fishing. Only a few years ago topwater fishing in Germany was still in its infancy. Through it more and more anglers are discovering this very visually unique style of fishing, through which the attacks of predator fish can be followed. For the author and professional angler Stefan Seuß, pure fascination is found as ever through wels angling.
In his presentation, he introduces the best trapping methods of the season, because even with ice and snow a waller is not easily caught. Angling for river zander in streams is the specialty of zander expert Sebastian Hänel, who will provide exciting insights into of the modern ways to fish for zander.
Hunting dogs: scent hounds with a perspective
Anton Fichtlmeier believes in optimal communication between dog and man and walks the path of trust in dog training. Twice a day in the hunting forum Fichtlmeier will present on important topics for upcoming buck hunting, retrieving, and also show new possibilities for raising hunting dogs that work demonstrably fast.
"The hunting forms in our region have changed. Today hunting mainly consists of stalking and retrieving ungulates. This requires a different approach in training our dogs, because they have different challenges," says Fichtlmeier.
Dr. Vet. Med. Anja Engelhardt is a specialist for vision illnesses and in her daily talk presents breed specific eye illnesses, their recognition and possible treatments for dogs, and also gives important tips for emergencies. A thorn in the eye – in the truest sense of the word – requires immediate and above all the correct measures by the dog handler so that the eyesight is saved. "The ability to see is essential for a passionate hunting dog. Unfortunately, especially blunt traumas to the eye are often treated incorrectly," says Dr. Engelhardt, with regret. Following their presentations, all presenters will be available for audience questions and a discussion.
Further exciting items on the agenda
The multifaceted supplementary offerings consist of hunting horn groups, fashion shows, the post exhibit of different hunting dog breeds as well as a raptor air display on the open grounds to round out the huntsmen’s offerings of JAGEN und FISCHEN. Active participation is possible in the long bow archery with Adalbert Klemens Schmelter and his team from Bogenzeit (supported by TBSV Paderborn reg.) as well as in the Augsburger Hunter Association shooting gallery.
Whoever has been introduced to the elegant ways of fly fishing through the trade show, can try out their gear in the 50 Meter long casting zone for fly fishers and be inspired by Ralph Warnke, a real expert, in the introduction to fly fishing rods.
The Augsburger Fish Center consecrates the show stage live with Erwin Tibad, a twice German Master, in the introduction to the secrets of tying flies.
The Fischery Club Ortlfingen will spoil the show visitors with fish dishes, prepared with native fishes. The aroma of zander filet, and delicious fish patties will lead a spontaneous culinary break, for which tired fair-feet will be thankful. Who has the wish to cook afterwards, can get ideas from the well-versed cooking show professionals in the nearby wild-and fish kitchen.
