General information:

Martens are not protected animals under the German Species Protection Act. It is a huntable animal and is subject to the German Hunting Act. The German Hunting Act does not apply in “pacified areas” (private property, court gardens and home gardens). The owner of the hunting grounds and their agents are permitted to undertake acts of hunting (setting traps to capture martens). This also applies to the owner of the respective property. The marten can only be hunted during a specified season (stone marten 16 October to 28 February). It is generally advisable to consult with the responsible hunting grounds owner when faced with a marten problem. The wood box trap complies with Germany’s Federal Hunting Act. Any state hunting regulations that deviate from the federal laws must be observed.
