On current occasion be advised that intentional disturbances of hunting activities are prohibited by law.

Community residents regularly drive on farming and forest roads by POV. These roads exklusivly are for use by farmers and forest personell. Especially during twilight times and darkness driving on these roads highly disturbs wildlife to include disturbance by off-road joggers, bikers and quads. 

These activities negatively  affect required hunting so that hit rates can't be achieved. 


Dogs are not allowed to run free within hunting areas.

It is considered a violence if the dog is not in control of the owner.


Due to increasing numbers of incidents I was asked to inform the public. 

Checks will be performed and I hope that prosecution will not become necessary.
