Re: bow hunting in europe???

Unfortunately in Germany bowhunting is completely forbidden. The best country is hungary, denmark or france.

Re: bow hunting in europe???

as a dumb yank, why would they NOT allow bow hunting. I would figure thats where bow hunting frist started way back when. I would also think artchery would be safer then fire arms in high popluated areas.

Confused as usaul,

Re: bow hunting in europe???

Hi WiskeyJaR!

don't think about the bow hunting permission in several european countrys. It is just unbelievable. sad The same persons in Lodengreen who are against ML are also against bows. They think it is not deerlike to hunt with a bow or traditional ML because they don't want it. But in many cases they have no knowledge about these arms and have never used them. banghead

I'm having a very hard time figuring out the logic of not allowing bowhunting. Is ownership of archery tackle legal?

bowhunting illegal!

Don't know the rest of Europe's excuse, sorry reason, but here in the uk it is banned on the grounds that a certain amount(basic minimum) of ft /Lb is required for a clean, quick kill, so as to reduce the amount of suffering to the individual animal. This equates to a minimum caliber in the uk of .243 for Roe and Muntjac Deer and .270 for Red and Fallow Deer.Period.
Go figure?

Germany also require's a

Germany also require's a certain amount of energy for hunting. That was why the 5.6x57 was developed. The deer are really really small. about two sandwitch's per deer. Part could also be their rules after a hit. It is a tradition not to watch an animal in it's death throes, the hunter turns his back. Then when they get to the animal, they place some vegatation in it's mouth. That signifies the last meal. They have a lot of respect for the animals they kill. But I don't really get the one about turning your back on a wounded animal. I would rather end it quickly. But Europe is Europe and they make the rules. Not all that hard to follow.
