The Federation of Hunting of the Valencian Community and has presented at the annual meeting of the game Council regional a battery of proposals and legislative changes in the face of the imminent drafting of the general order of vedas-season hunting 2017/18 in the Community.
The three delegates of the territorial FCCV, Maximum Belenguer, Raul Esteban and Miguel Angel Romero, along with many other legal professionals and technicians of the Federation have actively participated during the five hours that has lasted the meeting and who have been also present in the rest of entities and agents that make up this body of social participation involved directly in the hunting of the Valencian Community. The game Council has been presided over by Antoni March, director General of Natural Environment and Environmental Evaluation of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Environment, Climate Change and Rural Development of the government.
In regard to the petitions filed by the FCCV, developed after the work carried out during the past winter, and the fruit of the meetings held, both at the regional and provincial levels, highlighting the request for the extension of certain periods of hunting in the common areas. Specifically, the FCCV has requested to extend until December 6, corresponding to the hunting with a shotgun in a fixed position, and the hunting of the jump or in hand. Also has revindicado for this last mode, the enabling of the day of Saturday as the day of hunting.
As for the period of the midseason, the Federation has requested that you enable to the day of Thursday for hunting in the fixed position of the species of wood pigeon, brave, zurita, starling, magpie, jackdaw, carrion crow and fox. The period established for these species will be from August 15 to September 10. Will be maintained as a single working day on Sundays to the hunting of the european turtle dove, still it is possible between 20 August and 10 September, with a quota of eight copies per day and hunter. The quail may be hunted on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 13 August to 10 September, also with a quota of eight pieces.
With respect to the extension of the hunting of thrushes and starlings, the Federation has proposed to extend for one more week, coming up to the February 11, 2018.
The hunting of the wild boar and its problematic increase of population, with consequent damage to agriculture, has also occupied much of the Council. The FCCV has intervened so extensively, presenting proposals and legislative changes to increase the effectiveness in population control in the common areas. Since the Federation considers that hunting is the most effective method. Therefore, the FCCV has requested to be authorized by the mode of whipping, adding to the hook, and a suspension of the obligation of determining the location of the posts at the time of processing the administrative request. It has also been requested that the powers to appoint the managers responsible for the beatings be of the owner hunting.
Since the FCCV has been advocated also in the Council the need for extended periods of hunting, marking as most appropriate for the whipped and the hook from the first Sunday in September until the second of march of the following year. In addition, the Federation has been offered as an agent partner of the Administration for processing applications and permits, and thus contribute to facilitate and assist in the administrative procedures of the local hunters or agricultural associations who request authorizations.
Similarly, it has been requested that the access control is set in the nature prohibitive of step all the people outside the hunting. It should be performed by the first hunter stationed in the navy. In terms of the expectations, the Federation requests that you authorize the hunter to be turned around to the distance that it deems timely with respect to the cebadero or trough.
Also, referring to the rules of safety in the expected or anticipated, it has been requested that the hunter will not be able to be turned around at a distance less than 100 meters away from the edge of space hunting contiguous, unless there are terrain features which impede the scope of the ammo between outposts. In the case of common areas, the distance which will leave a hunter to the edge of the enclosed will be of 200 meters.
Finally, and also in relation to the increase of the damage in the crops, both by species of smaller game and greater, and requiring control measures, the Federation has requested the change of regulations that allow the purposes of the calculation of the income hunting that these species do not have valuation, when its hunting or capture is protected by exceptional authorisations or general rules of population control which have as their object the prevention of damage to agriculture, to the rest of the wildlife, in the accident of traffic or for combating diseases and epizootics.
Other proposals put forward by the Federation have been on the techniques of control of overpopulation of rabbit, the authorization of two dogs in the period between 15 march and 14 July, on the hunt to jump with a shotgun with or without dogs. And in reference to loose and stocking of rabbits in space hunting authorized, that the safety distance of 1.5 km is taken into account with respect to the areas of culture and not with regard to the municipalities declared pest. Also, it has been requested that can be traslocar rabbits in areas overpopulated to other low-density.
The president of the FCCV, Vicente Seguí, who has not been able to be present in the Council having to attend a meeting that was convened at the headquarters of the Royal Spanish Hunting Federation in Madrid, has congratulated the three delegates to the territorial and technical equipment of the Russian Federation for the “tremendous work” performed.
