Default hunting in germany

Hi there,
I'm a young hunter from germany and I'm curious about other countries and their opinion about ethics in hunt. in our land it's very difficult to become a hunter and you have to learn month and month to get the licence and before you are allowed to harvest your first game. actually I'm still learning … it's hard stuff!

This is how it sounds, if a hunt is over and the hornets are blowing. the signal s´tells you: "the deer is dead"


Once you reached the licence, you are allowed to own up to 2 handguns and as much rifles as you like. in germany the hunt is a lot about Tradition and Ethics. You can say, it's build up on this 2 things.

Anyway, now I'm here and I hope to learn a lot about your country and how you hunt. There will be the time, I'll check it out by myself.

Thanks for your time!

That's me in my Laser Light Theatre in a barn where I am training my skills. It's a Thetare where you can use rela video scenes for hunting. pretty nice and real good for educating myself.


I wasn't able to upload the pic, so please click the url.

Hunting in Canada has very little to do with tradition and more with availability.Our country is still so new that many people still remember HAVING to hunt for food.They thought it was work.
We are still in the transition stage of adopting more ethical hunting methods.Ie.some people still chase and kill game from vehicles.The tradition of drinking and hunting also still endures in some areas.
There are many people who hunt ethically and respect their game so we are heading inthe right direction.

Hallo Klaus,

Ich kann ein bisschen Deutsch,alsoSie dürfen mir Mail schicken, wenn Sie mehr auf Deutsch über Jagen diskutieren wollen.

As far hunting in the U.S., it is as old as the country itself, so there is some tradition. However, the culture of hunting and hunters is much different. First off, most states only require an 8 or 12 hour hunter safety class to obtain a license. The classtypically reviews firearms safety, methods of hunting,first aid and survival techniques, game identification, basic tracking, etc.

Annual license fees can vary a lot depending on the state and what the hunter is pursuing, but they ran under $50 on average. The state governments (usually the state Department of Natural Resources) plan and enforce game management plans and all hunting regulations. They employ game wardens to cite or arrest hunters who violate the law, and they investigate wildlife-related crimes, such as poaching.

Hunters come from all different backgrounds and areas of the country, just about anywhere there is rural land. But most are just average people who enjoy the outdoors and like to get meat and/or trophies. And the politics of hunting is way different over here. Most people don't hunt, but don't really have a problem with hunting as long as it's safe and humane. But they don't respect hunters as much as in Germany. There isn't the celebration and well wishes and high expectations in the community for hunters in the U.S.

As for guns, in most states people can have as many guns as they want, whether handguns or longguns, and we can keep them at home. Most states also allow the concealed carrying of pistols with a license. Guns have been here as long as hunting, and unfortunately criminals already have them, so we need to be able to protect ourselves.

Since I did not see an answer to your question about hunting deer in Germany. I thought I would respond.

The primary way of hunting deer in germany is from the highseat (deerstand). Dogs are used for drive hunts mostly in the fall and winter, at this time some deer are also taken but the majority come from hunting off the deerstand. The smallest of the deer in Germany is the Reh (roe deer) and the buck opened here on the 1st of May.
