    There may be some small deer or of course there's probably some wild hogs in the Carribean. But you will probably have a problem with permits for guns and such. Ask Wambli or bruchi. They're from Puerto Rico. They may have some knowledge on opportunities.

    My wife is from the Philippines. There is one island there that I know of with opportunities to hunt and that is Mindoro. They have a wild buffalo and some other large animals there. Most everywhere else anything that is edible is almost extinct.

    Plenty of hunting in the caribbean... It's called fishing. Dominca has nothing, Cuba is closed, the rest of the islands are small. There might be some pig hunting, but why go there instead of here? It's too hot for anything substantial to live in the wild.

    IMHO

    Re: Hunting in the carribbean

    You can hunt pigs, wild goats, duck and doves in PR, also varmints as monkeys and iguanas, there is hunting in some of the other nearly smaller islands as Culebra and Mona Island, Culebra has "Flamingo" one of the world's greatest beaches! There are some deer in this islands but it is ILEGAL to hunt them, now feral cats and iguanas in the smaller islands are considered varmints and pretty much there is open season on them there.

    Do not even contemplate a visit to "Isla de Ratones" nothing there but "ratones" which means "mice" in Spanish and the island is a heaven not for mice but for GIANT HUNGRY RATS that come to feed at night, couple of guys made the mistake of going there on a wooden boat, engine died on them and they had to spend all night atop the boat fighting hundreds of rats with the oars and yes they got bitten plenty.

    Now it is all seasonal but you are right on schedule, think hunting season here opens on Labor Day and there are seasons for gun and for bow and arrow, a "provisional" permit is required for non locals and a hunting class which I was told one taken in the US suffices.

    The local permits and all info are issued by "Recursos Naturales" (local Natural Resources office) please double check EVERYTHING with them, I don't hunt so this is all "hearsay" from LOCAL buddies that do.

    I warn you you to gather all your patience first in order to deal with them!

    They tend to never answer their phones so I am including their address, maybe they will reply to a letter...

    MONKEYS!!! When the hell did we get MONKEYS!!!!!

    When I was growing up there the only hunting was for wild pigs and goats in Mona Island. Wow things have changed a lot! Iguanas were fair game for a kid with a handmade bow and arrows and ALL birds were on my personal open season when I got my first Crossman pellet gun but that was about it!!!

    Can you eat a Flamingo???

    Think they escaped from some "scientific facility" and did a lot of what monkeys do in the wild... Buddies that have hunted them tell they are crafty fellows and hard to nab.

    Have you ever heard of oyster dressing? Our standing joke here refers to eating Cormorant (Water Turkeys). Water Turkey and Oyster Dressing,

    I think Flamingo would be close to that.

    And you would be wrong, I do lots of hunting when I get to the Dominican Republic, I believe there is still a moratorium on hunting there, but it does not apply to Me as I have one of the few permanent hunting licenses....... there are Guinea hens, doves, quail, ducks and domesticated animals gone feral.... pigs, goats, chickens ducks etc........

    For hunting, you should be dare enough to face wilderness and wild animals. You have to be very smart while going for it and it is good if you are equipped with nice and sophisticated weapons for it. Caribbean is a great place for hunting expeditions.

    Dude, what are you smoking? Let it go man! We, most all of us here, either hunt big dangerous game or would give our left testicle for the opportunity.

    Are you struggling with English as a second language? That's an open and honest question.
