I lived there as a kid in middle school and high school and my parents were there again most of my college years. I never hunted but I am pretty sure you can talk to the local MWR folks to find out. That or talk to the area Jagermeister, basically game warden for Germany, and get the scoop on all things hunting and forrest.

Since I'm not a hunter, I don't have any info. on that.

But when I was in the Army, I was stationed in Wildflecken and at the time, it was the closest unit to the east German border. That was around 20 years ago and I believe the post is closed now. They might still use its ranges for weapon exercises and practice since there was a ton of those there.

Good luck and take care!

It is very difficult to get a hunting license in Germany, they may have special rules for army personel or places you can hunt but it is pretty tricky, I am not sure if they army has land that is suitable for hunting.

In that part of Germany deer should be good, lots of small game, foxes, rabbits, birds. Too far north to get black forest game like bear, moose and wolf and I think it might be a bit far north for wild boar as well.

First it great posting. Second you will need to pass the GDR hunting license and join hunting club. That process can take up to a year or longer. The hunting is mostly deer and maybe boar if you are lucky.

so its not like here in the states where you can show your stationing papers and theyll let you get a local liscence despite how long youve been there?

The Wiesbaden/Frankfurt area produces and consumes a lot of good Apple Wine (Apfelwein). It is a regional specialty in the state of Hesse.

funny you should ask about Germany.... Guess where Ive been living for the last 4 yrs.
Great place, however the germans are sticklers for the rules etc. Hunting as an american stationed here will be difficult. You'd have to become a member of a local hunting clubetc. When you arrive contact the local Jagermeister (NOT the drink...the game warden)with hunting questions. If possible, it will be very expensive and require a long wait. Not really worth it. The Germans do a lot of hunting though as there is a stand in most every pasture. The deer here are really small as well. The countryside is beautiful to say the least. The area around weisbaden is pretty packed with people (Mainz, near Frankfurt etc) and getting away would be a requirement.

As far as Bud goes, its available on base. Try Budweiser Budvar-the original Bud- from Czech republic. The local brews are outstanding and different in every region.

Germany is a blast, but I hope you get to spend some time enjoying it (ie not deployed...)

Have fun--The girls are amazing, just get away from the base to find them.

Load clear.

you will go there saying that and you will leave realizing how much bud is crap. That is if you try all the different beers. Bud can't hold a candle to german beer.

I was stationed at Wiesbaden AirBase for 3 years in the late 90's. It is a cool place, about 30 minutes from Frankfurt.

You'll probably love the place. I spent over 7 years there while attending Jr. High and High School. The only concern I'd have is the exchange rate of the "mighty dollar".

Unless your are being deployed for more than a year, I doubt it would be feasable to obtain a license to hunt. If you do get one send me one of those "Giant Rabbits".)

PS: (from a Bud drinker). Ditch the bud and visit as many local Gasthouses as you can. Most brew their own beer using recipes which have been "in the family" for hundreds of years.

I agree....the beer over there is incredible.

I met my German bud in Frankfurt and he took me all over trying all the different unique beers from the local Gasthouses. Went to a monastarie where the monks have been brewing their own beer for a ****load of years. Biergartens every night....good times.

I was also crowned the wienerschnitzel eating champion at some little hole in the wall bar/restaurant in the woods that he took me to.

Things are a bit odd over there though. All the frigging stores close on saturday evening, and you are basically fugged if you don't stock up on "supplies".

Then you have the schizophrenic roads:wiggle: . On one end of the spectrum are the Autobahns, which are the best roads in the world (if ya like to haul ass), IMO. On the other end are the little cobblestone roads in the small villages ("Dorfs") which are brutal.

Regardless, Germany is a beautiful country with many thing to do and see, and the Frauleins aren't half bad!;D

It´s gotten better as shops are now allowed to stay open until 10pm from Mon-Sat and in case of emergencies there are always gas stations. They charge you a premium tho. Gas stations basically are 24/7 supermarkets nowadays.

I loved going to Germany a few years back when the Euro and Dollar were off by a penny. Check out the old castles and towns inside the guarded walls as that is history you wont see in the states. The beer is different in each town so you can always use the excuse as a total new beer. Contrary to rumor, they will serve it cold. Use the public railways too as they work great and are on time. When you get settled, go to Czech (my Grandma's homeland) as the dollar works well there and I dont think they hate Americans. You can buy $40 crystal candle holders for $8 and such so buy there and ship it through the Army for regular rates. Just take advantage of being in Europe on the cheap and see as many countries and historic sites as possible. You got a great opportunity so dont F it up by hanging on base forever.

When you hit the clubs keep, you have to pay a deposit for the glass that your beverage comes in. I use to keep the glasses, but you can return them and get the deposit back. Well at least that was the way it was when I was there.
