Hey all,

Recently got my Portuguese citizenship and I was wondering how the hunting regs in EU work? If anyone is willing to give some information, it would be greatly appreciated!

Each country is different mate. Can’t help you with Portugal I’m afraid.

Cheers. I wanted to know what the general regs are in terms of firearm ownership, what kind of prices I can expect and so on...

I can give you the name of a Portuguese outfitter if you want. He can give you the rules for Portugal. Just PM me if interested.

Steve Robinson (@shakari) was an Outfitter in RSA and Mozambique. He was on AH at one point. He moved from RSA to Portugal 5-10 years ago. He can probably give you the low down. You can contact him through the PM system.

All the best.

Good news is that there is quite a lot to hunt Red deer, Fallow deer, Roe deer, Mouflon, Wild boar.

All kinds of birds Pheasant, Quail, Does, Ducks, Red partridge....

Bad news, it´s Europe, so firearms ownership is very regulated, you will need a firearms license, which you have to renew every five years, I don´t know the specifics, but I suppose the Portuguese Consulate can give you a copy of the the Firearms Law.

You will also need a hunting license, and as to pricing, I have heard (never hunted there) it is very much like Spain. Trophy hunting is very expensive, but hunting a boar with your local club is quite cheap.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
