In 1995, a law was passed that banned hunting altogether.However, 10 years later, implementation decrees have yet to be issued, meaning the ministry cannot declare an official hunting season and it is still banned.To complete the shooting component of the test, the hunter will need to be licensed to carry a hunting rifle.The new decrees were the fruits of the Migratory Soaring Birds Project, a three-year, $1.35 million project funded by the United Nations Development Program, which saw the Environment Ministry collaborate with BirdLife International and the Global Environment Facility to assess the situation in Lebanon relating to migratory birds.Hunting-store proprietor Ofeich is not convinced that the state is serious about regulating hunting.Hussein Fayad, the secretary of Ammunition Traders for Hunting Weapons, denied that hunting stores benefitted from unregulated hunting.It seems that environmentalists, hunters and most gun and ammunition dealers agree that hunting would be safer and more sustainable if the hunting law were enforced.
