o highlight these problems, the Hunters Federation of  Orne, together with the Hunters Federation of Sarthe, “Office National des Forêts” and the “Office National de la Chasse et de la Faune Sauvage”, commissioned a study from the OGE firm. This study has been integrated into the Regional Ecological Coherence Scheme and the Departmental Game Management Scheme.
