Czesc!

At the time Im living in Krakow. As the hunter I am, I was hoping to get to do some hunting in Poland. Im not looking for any particular animal to hunt -everythings interesting!

Any suggestions? Does anyone know if theres some kind of shooting clubs, hunting teams in the Krakow area?? Possibilites for renting hunting terrain?

Thanks! Fingers crossed for a good answer! :)

hunting teams

They are everywhere... but you must pass the exams, buy a permission to kill a given animal etc.

I can not help you much but I can say that hunting in Poland is similar to this in for example Germany - so it is somehow snobbish (unlike the Scandinavia where it is sport for everybody).

You have to be a member of hunting club that "owns" some area for hunting (very often on the other end of Poland), work for them for free (feed the animals in winter, help to catch pouchers etc) then you are given a permission to kill some (strictly defined) amount of animals in specified (by the club) place and time. You can not just take a gun and go into the forest...

But as I know many clubs are earing big money by selling permisionss to foreginers (it can be very expensive) but I can not help you to contact any club near Krakow.

Best regards

Not really.

Here is the site of a regional "hunting union" in Kraków region:

hunting is highly regulated and you better be a sharpshooter.

laws for hunting are very strict and regulated here in Poland. Yes you must be in a hunting club to hunt and u must go through a theoretical and practical test to be accepted in a hunting club. Hunting is done only by the rich as its very expensive. Basically if a farmer owns lands and has problems with pigs and so on it all shot by the hunting clubs.... farmers cant hunt on their own land unless they are in a club that hunts on the same property. Shittt laws if u ask me ...

wait sorry let me re phrase that .... i think the laws and regulations are very well adapted seeing that most rivers are fished out .... so i think if it wasnt well looked after every person that wanted to shoot would be going around with his gun and beer shooting and wounding animals so i think the system is good .... i have seen this with my own eyes i do a lot of fishing where i catch and release certain sizes but over i see some folks taking home wat ever size they catch !!!

It's not as complicated as some people are making out.

There are "hunting trips" organised for tourists subject to conditions.
