Hi ajr13 - you do not require a licence to do pole fishing in Malta

I have always wondered what there was to hunt? I have never seen a rabbit on Malta (except in a hutch or a butchers shop) nor a pheasant, or partridge, or wood pigeon, I haven't even seen many songbirds so just what the hell do you "hunt" on Malta?
I was talking one day to a guy who said that he had a "hide" on some high ground & that he sat in that & waited for migrating birds of prey, & storks coming back from Africa to Europe after overwintering, I didn't realise that eagles, hawks & storks made good eating? Huh

Blueskip I can guarantee there are lots of rabbits over here but obviously you have to go to certain places,we never see pheasants they are just pets here,no partridge and wood pigeons we used to hunt them but the goverment putted all the hunters and bird trappers that beleived him in a trap himself.In Malta we used to hunt quails,wood pigeons,stirlings,trush,mallards and some other species.

I can imagin the guy you talked too caught thousands of storks over here because to see a few it would be a miracle because they usually migrate over the sea and not on land.

Did you ever taste eagles,hawks and storks?
I never did so I cannot judge or say,can you?

@blueskip i believe he was joking when he said that (jigbidlek saqajk as we say in maltese).The problem in Malta that all year round we don't have much water. Add to that a hot summer and there you have it.

Well no doubt if you had them, you would hunt them, but like much of the other stuff that's hunted, they wouldn't be eaten. That was my "tongue in cheek" comment, that shooting the birds of prey that migrate over the island (obviously the storks have learned quicker) which are probably inedible, makes not a lot of sense? Huh
I suppose that like wrasse you could probably put them into a stock or stew, but I wouldn't have thought that an eagle-owl pie would be high on the gourmet menu.
My son's in laws have a farm near the airport, & I have never seen anything bigger than a sparrow on it, yet there are guns going off before first light, & after dark, do some of the hunters hunt 737 400s of Ryanair? surely that is all thats about during the hours of darkness, oh & bats of course, never thought about them, bat casserole maybe?

Foxes are vermin which are nowadays shot/gassed to control their numbers especially in the vicinity of poultry farms, & sheep farms during lambing, the only people who hunted the fox for fun were the upper classes & those who aspired to be upper class. Badgers are very similar, they are gassed, trapped, shot to prevent the spread of bovine TB which they carry & spread by urinating & spraying on the grass which is then eaten by cows.
There is "vermin control", & there is shooting for fun, trying to cloud the issues does not make the problem go away!

Blueskip,

I am afraid that a very delicate matter has been touched here.

I do not want to make any useless and senseless comments but there are other forums dedicated for hunting and you will get loads of info from there.

This issue is very similar to fishing.  Good guys and bad guys.  On the papers we only here the wrong side of fishing (e.g. tuna extermination, long nets in harbours, undersised fish etc).  This similar reasoning applies for fishing also. 

You mentioned ''"tongue in cheek" comment,'' and you followed by addding more in the next post. I realise that this is your stile to put thing to pen and paper but there are some like me and others that have too hobbies at hearth.

I am encouraging you to look for some info on hunting nd trapping and then maybe you can have a different perspective of what you have just posted.

If we get permision from the moderators I will take some time to explain hunting to all but I believe this is a fishing forum and it should remain so.

Thanks

Adrian
