Created in 1964 by François and Jacqueline Sommer and recognized as a public utility by decree of November 30, 1966, their foundation was first called “Maison de la Chasse et de la Nature”.
In Paris, within two private mansions in the Marais district, it houses the Hunting and Nature Museum and the Hunting and Nature Club.
In the Ardennes, it has an estate where it preserves the fauna reintroduced immediately after the war by François Sommer and a school where it trains in the techniques of responsible hunting and forest management.
These trainings are eligible to the D.I.F. (Droit Individuel à la Formation).
In 2013, the Foundation pays tribute to François Sommer (1904-1973), its creator, whose name it now bears.

The new website of the French Horn Association is online. For the moment, it constitutes a base that will only grow and be enriched over time. The site is entirely open, but members will nevertheless be privileged in the future, with documents and services reserved for them. We hope that the wealth of information we can offer you will encourage you to join our association.

HISTORY: Created in 1930 by 121 hunting personalities belonging to 28 different nations, the C.I.C. counts today 67 member countries.

The CIC is an international non-governmental association that brings together states, national administrations in charge of planning, development and conservation of hunting and wildlife, national and international organizations, hunters, scientists and wildlife biologists. All these people are gathered in each country under the authority of a Head of Delegation who is the interpreter of the national position to the Board of Directors. In order to ensure the respect of a certain hunting ethic in accordance with the Fundamental Principles of the C.I.C., the membership of a new member is subject to a sponsorship and a prior acceptance of its national delegation.

The birth certificate

Following a general reformist impulse (creation in 1794 of the Polytechnic School and the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts), the Convention promulgated on August 3, 1795 (16 thermidor year III) a law establishing the Conservatory of Music, which replaced the previous schools.
The establishment is administered by a board (Gossec, Méhul, Cherubini) directed by Bernard Sarrette, “commissioner in charge of the organization”. It offers mainly instrumental teaching (mainly winds, with some string and harpsichord classes). In addition to training musicians, the Conservatory’s mission is to develop a method for each discipline and to participate in national festivals.
On October 22, 1796, he moved into the buildings of the former royal school of singing and declamation: Hôtel des Menus-Plaisirs, rue Bergère (now rue du Conservatoire).

Instinct as the only tool

Hound hunting is defined as the art of hunting with hounds. It doesn’t matter whatanimal is being hunted, the territory, the climate, the number of hunters, the number of followers. Lhe dogs, only the dogs.

They are the ones who run after the animal chosen by the handler according to a defined hunting plan, they are the ones who catch it, they are the ones who lose it. Their breed, a particular training, an adapted diet, predispose them to this exercise. They are athletes, capable of covering long distances in all weathers, in a determined, often hilly territory.

But the success of the hunt also depends on the psychic qualities of the hounds to outwit the animal. Hunting dogs hunt in packs. A dog, alone, no matter how exceptional, could not defeat the wild animal.
