Images of foreign poachers allegedly offering hunting tours in areas of the Yucatan went viral on social networks, Semarnat denied those versions.

The head of the Department of Natural Resources and Wildlife at the state delegation of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat), José Salvador Canul Dzul, explained that hunting is allowed in the Yucatan Peninsula, as long as it is done within the Management Units for the Conservation of Wildlife (Unidades de Manejo para la Conservación de la Vida Silvestre: UMA) and have the endorsement and permits of the agency, as well as the verification of Profepa.

“In Yucatan the practice is not common because there are just a few UMAs, while in Campeche there are more sites of this type”, explained the official.

He also spoke about the photos circulating in networks of the Tankab Outfitters group, which is accused of promoting illegal hunting and poaching in the region.

The official said there is a lot of misinformation about the issue, because this situation is not taking place in Yucatan, but in Campeche. In addition, the UMAs have permits and their owners decide what to do on their sites and with their species.

For a successful hunt, it is important to collect all the necessary equipment. An important factor when choosing a gun is its applicability. This is a subjective parameter, which means that the size of the butt matches the size of the hand, you can find a lot of cool options at gun store
