Hunting in Turkey

Hunting in Turkey
The geographical structure of Turkey, its natural plant life, wild life and weather conditions make it an ideal place for hunting. The Ministry of Environment & Forests (National Parks, Hunting & Wild Life General Directorate) manage the hunting grounds and wild life and issue Hunting Permission Certificates to Class A Tourism Agencies allowing foreigners to hunt in Turkey. If foreigners want to breed animals and release them into the wild they can only do this on private hunting grounds and with approval of the same Ministry.

Permission to hunt in Turkey is applied for by the Tourism Agency via the hunting regulators; the Central Hunt Commission (MAK) under law no. 6136, who in turn issue the Hunting Permission Certificate on which it states the hunters surname, nationality, dates and customs offices, when and where entry and exit into Turkey takes place, the specific hunting grounds, the hunt dates and hunting animal species and number of animals allowed to be hunted. Once permission is granted hunters are allowed to bring their guns and accessories into Turkey. 

Animals allowed to be hunted in Turkey are bear, hook horned mountain goat (Şamua), wild goat (Bezoar), wild boar, lynx, wolf, jackal and fox. The Central Hunting Commission determines every year what species of animal and hunting period is allowed and hunting animals outside of specified hunting grounds is strictly prohibited.
