Hunting license: exhibition


If you want to hunt, you have to successfully pass a hunter's exam and get a hunting license.

The hunter's examination is taken by the competent authority. The comprehensive exam consists of the shooting, the written and the oral-practical exam.

Preparatory courses for the hunter's examination are offered by the district groups of the state hunters' association and by private hunting schools. Participation in a course in preparation for the exam is highly recommended.

In order to meet the needs of the interested group of people, both short-term intensive courses and courses lasting several months are offered to choose from.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district, the independent city and the Hanover region.

The hunting license alone does not entitle you to hunt. In addition, a private-law permit is required to hunt in a hunting district. This can be obtained, for example, by leasing a hunting ground, by issuing a hunting permit or by issuing a hunting invitation from a hunting ground owner.

Special notes for - Single Municipality Meppen

Responsibility lies with the district. Please contact the district of Emsland, Ordeniederung 1, 49716 Meppen, Tel.: 05931 / 440 as the hunting authority.

The hunting license alone does not entitle you to hunt. In addition, permission under private law to hunt in a hunting district is required. This can be obtained, for example, by leasing a hunting ground, by the issue of a hunting permit or by an invitation to hunt from a hunting ground owner.

Which documents are required?

What are the fees?

Fees apply, please contact the competent authority.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Deadlines may have to be observed. Please contact the competent authority.

What else should I know?
