Current status: Legal

Regulations: Specific bowhunting exam is required

General information: Legalised in 1993 for all game species.

Big game (Reddeer, Roedeer, Fallowdeer, Moufflon, Wildboar) the minimum draw weight of the bow is 222,7 N (50#) and an arrow with hunting point, i.e. broad-head is required.

The use of crossbow for hunting purposes is not allowed.
For Hungarian Bowhunters additional to the general hunting state exam (which is required for each Hungarian sporthunter) specific bowhunting exam is required. This exam covers theoretical knowledge and proficiency test.

In general the bowhunters are under the same hunting regulations as the gun-hunters with some small privileges (as an example, the bowhunter is allowed to shoot at a sitting/standing hare also, however generally only the running hare is a legal target). In Hungary more than 400 bowhunters have passed the specific bowhunting state exam already.
