Algeria lifts 25 year long ban on hunting


The Algerian government has announced it is lifting the ban on hunting imposed more than 25 years ago because of an Islamist insurgency that was raging at the time, this is according to a report by the BBC.

The ban is said to have led to a surge in the population of boars, causing a big nuisance in rural areas where they damaged agricultural land.

Authorized hunting will now be able to take place for the next six months, Agriculture Minister Abdelhamid Hamdani was quoted by the Algerian press agency as saying.

In the early 1990s, the authorities decided to confiscate hunting guns and ban hunting after armed insurgents started to steal the weapons and use them in their attacks.

The ban on hunting other animals and birds has also been lifted.

They should have just opened season on Islamist insurgents and kept big game open!

They also have Barbary Sheep, Dorcas Gazelle and Cuvier Gazelle, but not huntable as far as I know.

But I´ll keep an eye on it, I love those gazelles and Algeria is close for me

That's the only place in the world I'd want to hunt a Barbary Sheep! In their native habitat on the Barbary Coast!
Agree . . . but can't say I'd go there to hunt boar.

I would like to hunt them on the Barbary Coast as well but in the mean time,an open range hunt in west Texas is pretty cool! Love to travel but also like an American Passport in my back pocket!

I'd love to hunt aoudad or gazelle, but I'd even go to hunt pigs just because I'd love to travel to Algeria.

A huge country of nearly one million sq miles. Inhabited by the Berbers who are well known to shoot first and forget the questions. With the ubiquitous AK-47 and its congeners, and even a few French Lebels being shot there (my friend tells me.), small wonder that the addax became extinct. In Algeria. Not Texas. Still, this could be the first step in making animals actually have value. But, the adage "Africa is for Africans" may still prevail. And that means, "if it moves, eat it". Good news, nonetheless........not much of that lately........thanks for posting...............................FWB

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
