Hunting Bird Policy and Regulation

The hunting management in Armenia has inherited number of issues, among which the following should be mentioned: (1) lack of game birds management and, as part of it - their monitoring; (2) lack of proper examination of hunters for granting them the licenses; (3) lack of control of the number of shot individuals. 

As a result of two-year work with hunting unions, Ministry of Environment, and Environmental Inspectorate, an agreement was reached on changing the legislation on hunting, which includes:

  1. reduction in the area of public hunting grounds
  2. introduction of a new state exam for obtaining hunting licenses
  3. obligatory monitoring of game birds
  4. development of mechanisms to control the qualitative and quantitative composition of species being shot in the season and poaching out of season
