In Tanzania, the hunting seasons lasts for about six months of the year. The rest of the year is known as the closed season. According to the Wildlife Conservation Act 2009, the Director of Wildlife may issue a permit for one to hunt during the closed session or season. However, this permit will only be granted with the consent of the Minister. The Act provides that any person who hunts during the closed session or season without a permit may be fined and/or imprisoned.
