The ambiguity is relentless !

After lengthy research, all I get is "ifs and maybe's, along with the usual official run-around".

My in-laws have extensive family connections throughout the subcontinent, and know of many hunting opportunities that the locals don't have any favour for, but are more than happy to guide the prospective stalker for a small fee.

Can anyone with similar experience send me in the correct direction for the information that I require?

Handguns would be a bonus but I don't like my chances.

As a suggestion maybe try the Indian consulate?

At least if they cant help they could point you in the right direction? ?

Thanks Aus, the consulate will be a good option for information.


Fish, there are a couple of 303s available to 'borrow', amongst the families, but being locals they don't have much idea of import laws.

And I'd rather take along some of my own items, if it were possible.

As for their opinions on the matter; first of all they don't want to get caught. Most species are protected in some way. That doesn't mean that it is policed with any degree of competency.
They are usually working and therefore it'd be right to compensate for the time off work, and so don't they often bother with the activity themselves. But I've been told anything from the odd crocodile entering the rice fields from the river to wild boars and some deer species, along with waterbirds are the go.


It may end up being way too hard. I don't think I need anyone, or myself, to find themselves in trouble.
The 'good old days' they talk about may be just that.

I will probably end up visiting the places and meeting the people, and simply scope out the vibe for another time.

You know what they say mate..

Do it the right way, or dont do it at all.

In another country you have to be 10,000 per cent above board, or face ANY possible consequence.

I got that from working at sea on a sheep ship for one trip, the Captain was very specific that there was no
protection of any kind when overseas in another country.
Good advice.

Whilst I have not hunted in India, I have been to India. And whilst it is one of the loosest places I have ever visited (56 curries in a row - pun intended) - It is only loose to us because they do things differently to us, their perception of what is important is different to us.

I cant stress this enough, they do not suffer fools and freely hand out punishments as fit.

Think - "when in Rome" and follow the rules.
