Appeals to the TAR
Federcaccia Lombardy makes its voice heard. As if that were not enough, after all the problems related to the opening and appeals to the TAR, the Lombard sheds will have to deal again with the database of live recalls and rules that, as usual, are anything but clear. Our association thus wrote to Lombardy region through the words of the President Lorenzo Bertacchi. Federcaccia asks that this season be transitional to allow hunters to update the bank correctly. After years of suspension, in fact, we have to start from scratch. “First of all, it is requested to give official confirmation that the database has been restored to all effects and functions - reads the note from Federcaccia Lombardia-. He also wonders how to proceed with the insertion of personal positions for the 2022/2023 season: are we still starting with a clone of the last complaint to be updated? He wonders because the latest statements date back to 2017, perhaps the most recent to 2018. Which raises a whole series of issues and questions.
Nothing quaestio on capture calls: having to be indicated with the identification code in full, the entries are those already present, which must be cleaned of deceased, freed or escaped specimens or updated for any transfers. The only problem concerns the handling of the call in hunting activities. “But the problem is very relevant on the calls raised. If the procedure in place at the time of closure of the BD is still followed, the hunters must start by cloning the last declaration and thus proceeding to update its content. It must be clarified whether the hunter who still holds the same number of calls can simply confirm the previous complaint even if, for example, those reared in these 4 years have all been replaced, or if he should eliminate all the calls and then add them. It may in fact happen that for the purposes of counting the hunter still holds and uses for example 10 breeding bottoms, but in reality they are different birds, purchased gradually to replace the previous ones.
Variations in increase or defect
The same applies in the event of increases or decreases. Many hunters in fact also had the habit of simply confirming the previous year's declaration, when the numbers of herds had remained unchanged from one year to the next. However, this makes the database completely unsuitable for the purpose, not even showing the number of decoy birds reared from year to year and intended for hunting. It is clear, however, that expecting now, during the current season, to carry out a timely update of the BD, dividing the bred by year, becomes problematic, also because in the BD the year of birth of the breeding call was not entered, but the year in which the lure began to be used as such: therefore a lure inserted as 2018 could actually have been born in 2016. Which obviously was the norm when it was a question of inserting the lures purchased by hunters who discarded them after having them used for one, two, three or more years and the hunting activity ceased.
Perhaps, having passed four years, and in some cases even five years, from the latest updates it would be appropriate for the Region to have:
1) that the current hunting season is to be considered transitory for the restoration and realignment of the database;
2) that hunters are invited, during the season, to detect and verify the code of the catches (catch calls) still held at the time of cessation of use at the end of the season;
3) that by 30 April 2023 the ex novo declarations must be entered in the BD, simply indicating the catch calls with the entire code and the breeding calls exclusively for the quantity held in January 2023 divided by species;
4) that the new declarations will act as a starting point for subsequent updates. However, it will have to be definitively and unambiguously clarified how the annual updates of the BD are to take place "(source: FIDC).
