    Hi mate, you may want to consider England just a short flight and access to lots of affordable hunting , shooting. To be able to hunt in France you have to take examinations and it is all in French with no exceptions so your language skills must be good.
    Here in the UK you can hunt (stalk) deer all year round as there is always something in season and of course there is the best pheasant and partridge shooting in the world.
    Send me a message if you want any advise etc. Good luck with the move.

    A days cull stalking for Red deer hinds in the Scottish highlands can be had for around £300 - 400 per day. No cull fees, shoot as many as you can.

    Romania has excellent hunting. I hunted Roe deer there two summers ago and it was an amazing trip. Horia Spandu is your guy for Romania. He has Stag, Roe, chamois, wolves, and bear.

    Tulu,

    To hunt in France you need a hunting permit.(this can be a national one or a departemental one) France is divided in departments (like states in the US) en every department has is own hunting association. For Marseille this will be

    Best to take contact with 'm. To own a firearm you'll need a permit or hunting license. Don't forget hunting is very popular in France and almost every type of game is available in the country. Major issue with France, most of the frenchmen only speak french....
    Best tip I could give you is to take contact with one of your future colleges, there must be a hunter around who can introduce you...
    Here the national link

    Wow! Thank you for the links and info! That was my main thought was to try and make a “hunting buddy” to show me the ropes! I will never simply give up hunting, just keep trying! Thanks again!!

    Actually I did have one more question for you! So here in the states reloading is pretty popular. I was thinking about taking some simple reloading equipment along and reloading over there. Are you aware of any laws that would prohibit reloading in France or if people even do it?
