Game Warden Confirmation

At the request of the person entitled to hunt, the hunting authority may confirm qualified game wardens as entitled to hunt protection. Full-time game wardens should be professional hunters or trained in forestry.

Confirmed game wardens are generally responsible for the same hunting protection tasks in the hunting district for which they are confirmed, as they are incumbent on the person entitled to hunt. In general, hunting protection includes the protection of game, in particular from poachers, food shortages, game diseases, poaching dogs and cats, as well as ensuring compliance with the regulations issued for the protection of game and hunting.

The responsibility lies with the district or the district-free city as the hunting authority.

The game wardens to be confirmed must:

  • be entitled to hunt or be appointed by a person entitled to hunt under private law for hunting protection,
  • be able to lease hunting and have a hunting license, as well as
  • ensure that they do not abuse their powers.
  • Application of the person entitled to hunt
  • Certificate from the recognized state hunters' association or the association of game wardens about successful participation in a game warden course
  • Proof of completed vocational training as a hunting ground hunter or forestry training
  • Proof of hunting lease eligibility
