Hunting seasons for animals

Hunting is not only adrenaline and adventure, it is also – or rather primarily – a responsibility and a fulfilment of obligations that are imposed on hunters by hunting law. The basic aim of this branch of forest management is the protection and management of animal populations in harmony with ecology rules, and these rules strictly determine the periods during which we can hunt specific species. It is worth remembering them when planning a hunting venture.
