(19th of August 2022)

Despite the enormous problems that we had to face before the start of the hunting season with the hunting of the white tern (streptopelia turtur), in cooperation with the Game and Fauna Service, it became possible to hunt it conditionally this year in our country, at a time when in other countries is completely prohibited by European directives.

At the same time, it is important to underline that after many years a new game species is added to the hunting map, after the efforts to allow the hunting of the phoenix (streptopelia senegalensis) by derogation for the first time, since its numbers in our country made it necessary, bore fruit. This success was the result of a correct and proactive policy of the Federation and our partners.

On the occasion of the start of the 2022 summer hunting season, we wish all fellow hunters good and safe hunting. As always, we urge respect and observance of the written and unwritten laws of hunting, respect for our fellow hunters, other users of the land as well as for the game and nature.

Good hunting everyone!!
