- Hunting is carried out only in groups, minimum 2 persons - in the presence of a companion - the organizer of the group, that will be responsible for the protection and the safety in the hunts and the organization in the best conditions of hunting.

Additional Explanation - legal, true and universally valid - for Romania:

- firstly, the BASIC RULE: In Romania, as a foreigner (not romanian citizen), you can hunt only if you are a Hunter in your residence country !

this means that to obtain the HUNTING PERMITS (TEMPORARY HUNTING PERMITS ) - issued only by legal and functional HUNTING ASSOCIATIONS that we work with - (filled in with the persons accepted to hunting ~ Foreign Hunters: type of animal/bird ~ days of hunting ~ duration of the hunting) you must have these documents - all together - valid and on your name:

- GUN PERMIT : in the first place, the most important, you must have at your name a GUN PERMIT (for hunting shot-gun / not kalashnikov or pistol :-));  this shows / proves that you have/possessed legal at least one shot-gun(not necessarily bring it with you in Romania) and you know how to wield / use a shot-gun.
WHO DOES NOT HAVE A GUN PERMIT - HE CAN NOT HUNT IN ROMANIA (logically, if someone has never held a gun in his hand - how can he go hunting...).

So, the GUN PERMIT has 3 functions:
- you can buy/possessed legal a gun
- you can travel with gun
- it is like a license to use firearms, shows / proves that you know how to wield / use a shot-gun (for this particularity we need this document)

- HUNTING PERMIT : to be a Hunter, for this entitling you must have a certified ~ license ~ document proving that ( in UE, Romania including, is called HUNTING PERMIT, it's like a little card who shows that you are a Hunter, the title itself).

ATTENTION: it may be confused, when I asked for this document I referred to a document issued by your country - as a entitling, of course, in Romania we take care - meaning intermediation and putting in touch - of file preparation for obtaining HUNTING PERMITS (TEMPORARY HUNTING PERMITS) - issued only by legal and functional HUNTING ASSOCIATIONS that we work with - (filled in with the persons accepted to hunting ~ Foreign Hunters: type of animal/bird ~ days of hunting ~ duration of the hunting), documents that we always must have with us on the field, during the hunting, in case of a Police control...

- MEDICAL INSURANCE : international medical insurance covering hunting accident. In Romania, when you're hunting, you must have medical insurance against accidents for hunting, valid throughout the stay / hunting parties; can doit in Romania, it would be better if you can do that in your country.

- In Romania the hunters are part / are members of a Hunting Association, for this we have MEMBERSHIP CARD HUNTER - in your documentation i do not need that, unless you have something like this - this is the least important.
