    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!

    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.
