For the examination or objection of a hunting lease according to § 12 Abs. 1 Satz 2 Bundesjagdgesetz (BJagdG) 15 to 25 euros are charged.

The competent authority may object to the contract within three weeks of receipt of the notification if the provisions on the lease period are not complied with or if it is to be expected that the provisions of hunting law will be infringed by the contractual practice of hunting.

During these three weeks, the lessee may not hunt unless the competent authority authorises hunting at an earlier date.
