Hunter's Examination Approval

The first issue of a hunting licence depends on the applicant having passed a hunter's examination within the scope of the Federal Hunting Act, which shall consist of a written and an oral-practical part and a shooting test; it must provide the hunter's examination with sufficient knowledge of animal species, game biology, game hoof, hunting, wildlife damage prevention, land and silviculture, weapons law, weapons technology, the management of hunting weapons (including fist-guns), the management of hunting dogs, the treatment of the killed game, with particular regard to the hygienically necessary measures, in the assessment of the health-safe nature of the game, , and in hunting, animal welfare, nature conservation and landscape conservation law; poor performance in the shooting test cannot be compensated for by performance in other parts of the examination. Countries may make admission to the hunter test conditional, in particular, on proof of theoretical and practical training. For applicants who had an annual hunting licence before 1 April 1953, the hunter examination is not required. A hunting test for hunters who wish to carry out hunting with the hunting weapon before the date of accession in the German Democratic Republic is equivalent to the hunter test within the meaning of sentence 1.
