there is Hunters Association in Poland- and millions are members
you cannot hunt here unless a member or paying for "hunting party' marketed to foreign hunters (Polish hunters organize and have pretty close supervision over the whole thing.

there may be no great variety of game and there are periods set up to protect animals in certain times of the year

appart from shooting animals Hunters' Association feeds them in winter, cultivates some plots of land for winter food for animals (mostly within forests where I live) in certain areas it also provides fences for protecting farmland from animal intrusion and devastation or organizes shooting 'patrols' during most vulnerable times for crops shooting once a quarter of an hour so scare of

animals

actually Polski Związek £owiecki had little above 100 000 members - I took the previous fiugrefrom the top of my head

This is true what gumishu wrote below. If you are real hunter (licence, gun ect.) you can try with hunting agencies. I recommend company HUNT ADVENTURE. I was three times with them, one was driven hunt with group 15 people (the best fun I've ever had), and two time individual roebuck hunt. My biggest trophy was 515g. If you are really interested just contact them by website.

[Moved from]: HUNTING IN POLAND

Hello!

I wonder what experience you have in hunting in Poland?

I was several times with one polish company Hunt Adventure, I was really satisfied. Good organization, all inclusive, nice places and prices. The most important for me - great game. The best was driven hunt, we were in 15 people for one week. In Winter I will go one more time there. Maybe some of you would like to go with us - just send PM.

Thanks, Africa is something different from European hunt. I heard only good comments about this kind of trips. They also recommended me this. But for now I'll discover polish forests.

Now I see why there are less and less wild animals in Polish forests. Hopefully hunting won't get more popular and they stop converting forests into foreign-owned shopping malls :(.

I think you are not hunter in Poland... As you know each hunting club have season plans for each game on their hunting areas, they are calculated by years of inspections and counting year by year. Population of "Polish animals" is stable. Please visit web pzlow.pl - Polish Hunting Assoccation and our website huntadventure.pl if you are interested to hunt in Poland.

I was just wondering what polands view on hunting is

Divided, just like everywhere. Some Poles think it is needless cruelty, some are indifferent, others support it.

and if they actually do hunt in poland and if its popular.

Hunting is posh among well-off males. I know a few lawyers, doctors, dentists, public servants who have chosen this activity coz it is fashionable in their circles. Costs of guns and annual fees to the local hunting lodge can be high.

It has just occured to me: hunting animals, especially such a big game as deer etc does require certain dose of cruelty in your psyche. It seems some people are born with it and they need to regularly let it out. . Isn`t it better if they kill animals within the law and have their natural cruelty under control rather than they use it against other people, also injuring or killing them in worst cases?

That is why I am not against hunting - let it be.

Hey, did you know about this old Polish custom - your first hunt is celebrated as a special event and your face is smeared with the blood of the animal you shot. I also read about this custom in books about Poland in the past.

On my island, one would be allowed to hunt with a knife and stripped naked.

Knife -OK - fair game. But why naked? Mosquitoes would eat them alive. Even cavemen used skins during hunting. :)

Because the animals are naked. If a hunter wants to keep warm, let him use what he killed as his suit. Or use bark.

Most definitely, given that the animal cannot fight back.

your first hunt is celebrated as a special event and your face is smeared with the blood of the animal you shot.

This is also the case in England.
