Hunting with a strict sporting purpose is governed by a series of written and unwritten rules and regulations, the non-observance is harshly punished by the relevant legislation that penalizes this type of conduct. There are some protected animals, in danger of extinction, which are prohibited from hunting, and certain places created for the protection of species, where their hunting is also prohibited, such as natural reserves or national parks.
Within what is hunting for a recreational or sports purpose, there are a significant number of ways to practice it, which will depend on the type of species to hunt and the way in which it is done.
