"I always make sure to have an ongoing renewal and inquire about who may have their hunting licenses. It is exciting for people to be part of such a great hunt here," he said. "It is good to be back outside and have a good nature experience together in West Jutland. It is something that is very important to me to have the opportunity to bring people who know the area better than me, who also go hunting, to bring them together. And enjoy each other’s company. There are lots of animals out in the woods, and it is also important to regulate so that there are not too many animals out in the woods."

The hunts typically take place during the hunting season — which is from October 1 to mid-January.

Earlier this month, the family attended an event, which kicked off the hunting season.

"When autumn has taken hold of Dyrehaven, and the calendar says the first Sunday in November, it's time for the traditional Hubertus hunt 🏇🍂🍁⁣," a caption read.

"So, today, Your Royal Highnesses the Crown Princess, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, along with about 40,000 other spectators, were able to witness the hunt, which is a continuation of the old parforce hunts that Dyrehaven was originally built for," the message continued. Because in Dyrehaven's star — shaped path system, in the old days, dogs were allowed to dust up foxes, after which the field followed. Today, the fox has been replaced by fox tails on two experienced riders who ride at the front of the 11 km long race with 32 obstacles along the way."
