What You Need To Know About Hunting Season

Overview of Hunting Season in the UK

Hunting season is a time of year when you can legally hunt certain animals. The purpose of hunting season is to control the population of certain species by reducing their numbers, or to provide food for people who live in rural areas. Hunting season takes place during different times of year depending on which animal you want to hunt and what part of its body you want to eat (for example, venison).

Hunting season varies from country-to-country and state-to-state within countries like the United States; however, there are some general guidelines that apply across most jurisdictions:

In most cases, hunting seasons run from October through March or April (depending on location).

Most species have closed seasons where no hunting is allowed--this period usually lasts around six months per year but varies depending on where you live!

Start and End Dates of Hunting Season in the UK

The start date of hunting season in the UK is 1st October, and it usually ends on 31st January. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, if you live in Northern Ireland, then your hunting season will end on 31st March instead of 31st January because they have their own set of rules when it comes to hunting animals.

The extension period for certain types of game can also vary depending on where you live in Britain. For example: if you live in Scotland or Wales then your extension period lasts until 28th February; whereas if you're living in England or Northern Ireland then your extension period lasts until 1st April (or sometimes even later).

Hunting Laws in the UK

Hunting laws in the UK are a bit complicated, but we'll do our best to explain them here.

Licensing Requirements: You must be 16 years old and have an appropriate license to hunt certain animals. These licenses are issued by local authorities, so check with your local council for more information on how to obtain one.

Hunting Restrictions: There are many restrictions on hunting in England and Wales based on species, location and time of year that you can find here (link). For example, dogs cannot be used when hunting hares during their breeding season between March 1st and August 31st each year unless they have been trained specifically for this purpose (which requires further certification). This law also applies if you're hunting rabbits with ferrets or terriers as well as birds such as partridges or pheasants--though there are some exceptions if you're using guns instead of dogs!

Where to Hunt in the UK

There are a few options for where to hunt in the UK:

Public Hunting Grounds. These are open to everyone and can be accessed by car or on foot. You may need permission from the landowner before hunting on private property, though some public grounds allow you to hunt without permission if they're not marked as "no hunting" areas.

Private Hunting Grounds. These are owned by individuals who have granted permission for people like yourself to come onto their land and pursue game animals such as deer, rabbits or pheasants (which aren't technically considered game animals). In order for these types of hunts to take place legally in England and Wales, hunters must hold a valid game license issued by Natural England (NE) or Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH). A few examples include The Royal Society For The Protection Of Birds' reserves across Britain; private estates such as Sandringham Estate near King's Lynn; shooting clubs like The Pytchley Hunt Club near Towcester;

Types of Hunting in the UK

There are four main types of hunting in the UK: stalking, driven hunting, rough shooting and deer hunting.

Stalking involves walking through forests or fields to find your prey. You may also use dogs to help you track down your quarry before shooting it with a bow or gun.

Driven Hunting involves using packs of hounds to chase animals out into an open area where they can be shot at close range by hunters on horseback (or sometimes on foot). This type of sport is popular among farmers who want to control their local population without having to kill them themselves--and it's also known for being extremely noisy!

Rough Shooting is similar but doesn't involve any kind of organized group activity; instead it just means taking advantage of opportunities when they present themselves during normal outdoor activities like hiking or camping trips (hence "rough"). A lot more common than either stalking or driven hunting because no special equipment is required beyond a gun license and ammunition if needed (which isn't always), so anyone can do this one!
