The following PhD thesis has the aim to carry out a geohistorical analysis of the natural resource known as "big game hunting" in the province of Jaén and its municipalities, from the Mid-14th century to the promulgation of the 1970 "Hunting Law". The above-mentioned territory provides with a range of optimum biotopes for the development of the hunting wildlife . Big game hunting, as a field of interest far the privileged social groups was subjected to some evolution throughout the centuries. It once derived from some military exercise to some leisure activity. As for the folk, it always meant a source of food. But far both, big game hunting was never to be deprived of its defensive nuance. This investigation is complemented by some study about, both the legal and institutional state of hunting since 19th century. lt was then when the relation between the natural right of hunting and the social one of prívate property brought about sorne conflicts. This tension was overcomed during 20th century since the Francoist hunting policies would contribute to "the boom of the Spanish hunting".
