Persons under 18 years of age will not be able to participate in the hunt, hunters will have to undergo periodic medical examinations, and the Minister of the Environment will have greater supervision over the Polish Hunting Association - among others such solutions are foreseen by the amendment of the Hunting Law, signed by President Andrzej Duda, as per Onet.

It assumes, among others, that persons under 18 years of age will not be able to participate in hunting. The new law also increases the rights of property owners.

The new Hunting Law will primarily strengthen the rights of property owners in the creation of hunting grounds. It will be able to switch off your land from hunting. This is a consequence of the Constitutional Tribunal's judgment of 2014, which ruled that some provisions of the Hunting Law are incompatible with the Constitution, as per Onet.

It was about the lack of consultation with private landowners in the creation of hunting grounds and the possibility of excluding their property from hunting.

According to Onet, the amended act stipulates that the owner or perpetual usufructuary of the real estate that is part of the hunting circuit will be able to file a statement with the staroste, in which he refuses to conduct hunting on their land.

In addition, the new regulations increase from 100 to 150 meters the distance from the residential buildings of the area where hunters can hunt. Hunting can also be carried out at a distance of 500 m from public gatherings.

After the stormy discussions in the Sejm and the Senate, the amendment also included a provision that hunters will have to undergo medical and psychological examinations every five years.
