Hunting & Shooting
In Turkey, hunters must obtain Hunting Licenses that are granted after examinations, and they must deposit the specified license fees to the accounts of city directorates.
In our country, citizens who are over 18 years of age, who have arm carrying licenses, receive theoretical training on hunting and wildlife and successfully pass the exams are granted the license to hunt on condition that they obtain a hunting license and hunting permission card.
