Just joined. Work for the US Army in Germany. I am an instructor that teaches the hunting course to US Forces so they can get their German Jagdschein and hunt in Germany.

Royal27, I probably don't have any exciting storys to talk about. After reading so many African safari hunting stories, hunting in Germany sounds a little boaring. Nothing bites back except the wild boars, and when we are 2+ meters above the ground in a high seat, it is pretty safe. One goood point is that I work at a military training area that has about 4000 Red Deer that run wild. The only animals I have hunted in Germany are Red Deer, Roe Deer, and Wild Boars. I hope to make an African safari hunt one day, so I just purchased a rifle in .375 Ruger, and I am preparing for a hunt.

Welcome to AH Craig! feel free to post some pics and a sample of the test that has to be passed to get Your Jagdschein they should get a kick out of that if its anything like the test I had to take back in the 90's. Enjoy the site.

Welcome to AH.

Great to have another hunting resource to call upon when in need of information on Germany.

Welcome to the forum, Craig! You will enjoy the great company here. I would love to see some photos of those boars in Germany.

Welcome friend. Was stationed in Germany from 75 to 80 and had a wonderful time hunting from one end of then West Germany to the other. We could learn a lot from the Germans about respect for game.

I'll answer any questions about hunting in Germany if I can, and if I can't, I'll research and find the answer. I hunt with a German federal game warder, and he will probably know what I don't.

Craig, welcome to AH.

You should have direct flights to Some African Countries.

Many Germans hunt in Namibia. And if you speak English or German plan a trip.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.
