Default Hunting Course Germany

Here is the Hunting Course Agenda that US citizens must take before getting a hunting license. It costs $200. The Germans normally go for a year and pay $2000 euros. We are quite lucky. I am teaching Hunting equipment and Hunting Firearms. Most likely I will be helping with other topics. I am also a shooting advisor and qualifier over the weekends. A number of students have not shot at all, or maybe never fired a rifle, pistol or shotgun. Most are already hunters from the US. Still, the qualifers are very hard for the various firearms. Very hard. The written test is long and very hard. You need to know many German hunting words. Yep, I am Daniel.

Jeeez thank God we don't have to go through anything like that here in Australia there'd be almost no hunting or shooting sports because most of us are a fairly laid back lot.
Don't get me wrong we do love our hunting a lot but that is just bloody ridiculous.

If you don't mind I might take that and post it on the Aussie hunting forum I'm a member of just to show them just how lucky we really are in regards to our freedoms to owning and enjoying our past time.

When I grew up a family member, Dad or Pawpaw, took you out and you leaned to hunt. I killed my 1st deer on my own at 14. After hunting with my Dad for doves and quail he gave me a 30-30 and told me to go shoot one. I did. Took my youngest son at 12 and put him on stand opening day and he shot a beautiful 8-pointer. Dropped on the spot. Frig all the rules you have to go through. We still have the pioneer spirit here though it is fading as we watch our cities grow and people in the country are becoming mostly stupid fools from cities moving out into the country to get there 5 acres of paradise. No problem with it if they would leave the city attitude behind.

A German friend told me that a person who hunts big game in Germany must have access to a tracking dog. i can appeciate that because i often track wounded deer and elk for other hunters. IMO: Many, if not most, hunters in this country can't track wounded game worth a crap.

You have to have at least one trained dog if you are in charge of a hunting revier. You are right about the wounded game being the reason Also, you must have a trained dog when you are hunting birds.

It`s sure a lot longer than it was when I took it back in 1966, and cost a lot more. You didn`t mention how hard it is to actually get to hunt after you got the license.

Things have changed a lot. I have been hunting every Saturday all summer, not to mention the endless amount of drive hunt invites. I can hunt throughout the week if I wanted to. I feel extremely lucky. This weekend I am hunting boar, Roe, fox, badger and mouflon. I saw the location where the mouflon (mountain sheep) are crossing the revier (fresh prints and feces suggest around 0700 in the morning). I want a big-horned ram for meat and trophy
