I was even thinking of doing a spot of small game (rabbits, pheasants etc) hunting if I get the time.
Well one thing you will not find wild rabbits in Poland, at least if you do find them they are in VERY isolated areas, and another thing is that the hunters have almost extinguished the pheasant species here in Poland.
Shooting is a very exclusive club in Poland, and has two years of slavery for the shooting club, beating, cleaning, feeding the prey, even before you pickup a gun.
And there are some idiots shooting as well, at least there are around our area where I live where they shoot pet dogs, which they can even on the owners property, if, they are 200 metres away from the home and without a collar on.
Their argument is that they are protecting the wildlife from being destroyed by the dogs, BUT, because they have shot all the wildlife, they get bored and shoot anything that is around including dogs.
My neighbour has lost two dogs in this way and tried to take the "hunter" to court, but lost because they were too far away from his house even though they had collars on, but guess what, when my neighbour found them the collars had been removed.
I used to do a lot of shooting in the UK, competition and hunting, and I was tought by my father at the age of 12 to only shoot what you can justify killing, but this rule in Poland is out the window.
One sickening example was the culling of wolves in the mountains where the hunters wanted a licence to hunt them for fun, when this should be done by trained park rangers and not for some rich city guy.
