After several accidents, a petition signed by more than 120,000 people demanded better supervision of hunting. In a report, the Senate recommends limiting alcohol at hunting sites.

Before each beat, it’s the same ritual for Mathieu. But in his reminder of the safety instructions, he does not mention alcohol consumption. Today, no rule frames it during a hunting party. The Senate proposes to impose a limit, as on the road. Hunters don’t all agree. “Nor should I go hunting and say to myself: “I’m going to get checked when I get out of the bush (…). It doesn’t make sense”estimates Matthieu Thizy, president of the hunting club of Pomeys (Rhône).

The goal is to secure the hunters but also the walkers and the surrounding villages. After a succession of accidents, a petition, which brought together more than 120,000 signatures, asked for better supervision of hunting. Among the other recommendations, a compulsory annual medical certificate or even improving training. In the petition, among the tracks rejected are those of days without hunting in the week.
