    In the two and a half hour hearing, it became clear that the amendment to the land hunting act is a major step in the right direction. At the same time, the representatives of the provincial hunting Association, explained, but also that there is still significant need for improvement in the design.

    In particular, the inclusion of the following provisions:

    1. Full recording of the Federwilds in accordance with the Federal law on hunting in the country hunting act. The current scheme is considered to be not feasible, a protection of certain wild game species over a full year already times as effective.
    2. Re-introduction of the obligation hegeschau the deer on the transparency, and also to the non-hunting population.
    3. Allowing area-wide hunting in the protected areas for the prevention of epidemic risks such as the African swine fever (land conservation act).
    4. Funding of the research centre for hunting the customer and the wild the prevention of damage from public funds instead of out of the hunting tax.

    During the survey, self-delivery is largely factual, try and interested parties to continue the media and manipulate the Public. So you want to make believe, all in the future, the hunting rights under the authority of animal species should be hunted, in concealment, however, is that the most of the experience provided by the full-year periods have a significantly better protection than the conservation law. The provincial hunting Association is against manipulation attempts. Also hunters should do well to avoid the incorrect formulation of “huntable species,” which conveys a wrong impression.

    Müller-Schallenberg expects that the future land hunting law to the new hunting year on 1. April 2019 will be in force. He pointed out that the services of the hunting community for nature and society have always been the party recognized across.
