Reliability and suitability
A hunting license/ falconry license is to be denied in particular if facts justify the assumption that the applicant does not possess the required reliability or physical aptitude.
The first issue of a hunting license is generally dependent on the applicant having passed a hunting examination within the scope of the Federal Hunting Act, which consists of a written, an oral and a practical part. Information on the hunting examination can be found under "Related topics" under "Hunting examination; application".
The first issue of a falconry hunting license is dependent on the applicant having passed a falconry examination in addition to the hunter examination. In addition to the falconry test, a limited hunting test, i.e. without a shooting test, is sufficient. Information on the hunter's examination can be found under "Related topics" under "Hunting examination; application".
Hunting liability insurance
The issue of a hunting license/ falconry license is dependent on proof of sufficient hunting liability insurance. To this end, the applicant must submit written confirmation from the insurer stating that the named insurer has hunting liability insurance for the named policyholder that complies with the statutory provisions (in particular the sum insured). Furthermore, the start and duration of the policy or the period of validity of the confirmation must be stated. The period of validity must fully cover the daily, one-year or three-year hunting license applied for.
In order to avoid waiting times for the issue of a hunting license after passing the hunting examination, it is advisable to contact the responsible lower hunting authority as early as possible for the background check to be carried out in accordance with the Weapons Act.
