In the Mediterranean area it is found more on hills and mid-mountains than in the plains but it avoids too dense forest areas. Finally, note that nowadays it avoids the extreme Mediterranean coastal fringe. In winter, it preferentially uses meadows bordered by large hedges and open spaces of medium altitude.

Being often in the woods, hunting is done in small drives with beaters.
