La Caza Del Lobo Congelado is a photo series, captured by Spanish photographer Ricardo Cases, that captures the peculiar niche experience of urban dwellers traveling to the countryside to enjoy rural-themed holidays involving activities such as hunting.

Cases captured his photographs at a Spanish gaming reserve, La Cardenchosa, that attracts businessmen and others looking to enjoy some hunting thrills. These visitors' fascination with the countryside has more to do with romantic ideals than reality, while the destinations they visit intentionally cater to these fanciful perceptions.

La Caza Del Lobo Congelado captures urban visitors who visit the reserve to enjoy rurally packaged lodging and the hunting of deer and boar. Amusingly, the animals on the reserve are bred and fed year-round making this exercise an artificial one.
