The hunting season in Madrid

In the Community of Madrid, the arrival of autumn and, in particular, October, is when the hunting season begins. Since this activity is regulated by annual ordinances that provide for the opening and closing of the closures, as well as many other interesting rules, here we will explain everything you need to know if you are passionate about this exciting sport.

Small game season

The small game season in the woodlands began on October 8th and will end on 31st January 2017. The exact days that are authorised for hunting purposes will be on Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays in Madrid.

In the case of private hunting areas, the law states that an area of ​​at least 250 hectares may be used for hunting wood pigeon, turtle dove, the European starling, jackdaw, crow, magpie, quail and fox. This season, hunting activities will run from August 15th to September 15th 2017 and, except in the case of the turtle dove and quail species, which can only be ten captured per hunter per day, there is no limit to how many other species you can hunt.

Big game season

The hunting season for deer, mouflon, wild boar and deer has already began on October 8th and will not end until 21st February 2017. Meanwhile, deer stalking is allowed from September 1st up to the date mentioned above.

On April 1st 2017, the hunting season for the male ibex goats will begin and end on June 30th. However, from 15th September to 15th November this year, it will also be possible to hunt female ibex goats without a problem. We must also say that male deer may be hunted from 1st April to 30th June 2017.

From 21st April, all the details about the hunting season in the Community of Madrid appear listed in Article 1 of the Order 637/2016. This regulation specifically covers the 2016-2017 campaign and enjoys legal validity until the publication of a new one comes out. In any case, if you have any questions, we invite you to review the legislation itself.
