********************************************* ALARM CALL *******************************************

Dear Compagnons, dear friends,

In 2016 and 2020 the hunting world  has gone through rough times, with first the swine fever  followed by the COVID19.

Many of us have suffered, but I hope you and your families are doing well.

The viriusses have kept us away from our hunts, from our friends, from the conviviality and the noble feelings we experience together.

The Brotherhood sort of fell asleep, no more meets, no 40th Chapter, no September feast, no 3 November celebration in honour of our protector Hubert, nothing anymore ! Only the fix overhead of our organization continued alright !

While preparing the end-of-year accounts, I realized that things went wrong. The payments of the membership fees dell dramatically. Only 2/3th of the fees have been received.

Here is where I ring the alarm bell 🔔🔔🔔 !

Don't drop your Brotherhood !  Please remember to pay the yearly 2020 and 2021 fees !

This amount not even at the level of the "hat" for one single hunting day. If you feel like being a bit more generous, your gesture will be warmly welcomed! You can transfere the amount on account BNP-Fortis, BIC: GEBABEBB - IBAN: BE74 26003697 0207 to "Les Compagnons de Saint-Hubert". Thank you in advance !

I hope we can soon meet again at the 40th yearly Chapter, although we cannot predict the exact date yet.

In the meantime, stay healthy and be careful !

Kind greeting in St. Hubert

Your dedicated Secretary General / Treasurer.

OUR HISTORY
In 1975, within the framework of the international cultural relations, the "Union St. Hubert, a Belgian hunters association and editor of "Chasse, Pêche, Environnement” (Hunting, Fishing, Environment), met with a French regional brotherhood "Les Compagnons de St. Hubert du Val de Loire " established since 1966 in Tours, which held its Annual Chapter in Mont Louis-sur-Loire. The goals of the Brotherhood were, improving Hunting practises and the  recognition of the quality of the hunter of the Loire Valley, but also the establishment of fraternal relations among their members.


On September 4, 1976, at the invitation of the "Union St. Hubert, the "Companions of St. Hubert of the Loire Valley" visited the city of St. Hubert in Belgium to attend the "International Days of Hunting" and to hold an Extraordinary Chapter. On this occasion, friendly relations between French and Belgian hunters were born.

In 1979 a Belgian internationally-oriented independent cell was formed by a first group of Belgian, French and German hunters, giving birth to the Confrérie Internationale "LES COMPAGNONS DE SAINT-HUBERT". The Code of Honour was written and the attributes of the Compagnons, - the Medal, the sandstone cartridge and Knight’s Certificate of the Compagnons de Saint-Hubert were created. The aims and goals of the Brotherhood allow hunters of all nationalities to meet, especially during the annual Chapters, and adhere in a solemn engagement, in the spirit of brotherhood, mutual assistance, friendship and peace, by practicing ethical and sustainable hunting in accordance with the Code of Honour.

On November 2, 1980, the first Induction Chapter was organised by the eight first dignitaries of the time. The first Belgians, French and Germans will soon be joined by Dutch, Danes, Norwegians, Swedes and Canadians. It was then decided to set up the statutes and to officially establish the association.

On March 24, 1985, the General Assembly held in St. Hubert, approved the statutes and the Brotherhood was formed now becoming asbl Confrérie Internationale "LES COMPAGNONS DE SAINT-HUBERT". In coordination with the civil and religious authorities, the headquarters were established at the House of Tourism and Tourist Office of Saint-Hubert, which was named the same year "European Capital of Hunting and Nature".

Today, the Brotherhood counts more than 1100 members and is represented in most European countries, such as Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Brittain, Hungary, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Sweden . . . .
