In Aruba, private gun ownership is not guaranteed by law. I doubt you would be allowed to transport firearms to the island.

What do you want to hunt? Iguanas? Feral goats?

I am not sure what you would hunt with but I know guns are not allowed at all.

Hi,

I don't know how true this is but when we were in the National Forest our tour guide said that there was a season to hunt boa constrictors as they have become an invasive species. I honestly don't know how you hunt a snake.

No - Aruba is not a place to hunt, I would look elsewhere where it is more normal. The innocent birds, reptiles, and fish on this island have their own ecosystem that they can change for themselves. There are enough issues with animals becoming endangered at the expense of humans.

A shot from a hunting rifle would travel right across the whole island! Aruba is very small, and all wildlife is cherished.

Enjoy your visit but it wont include hunting, lots of fishing is available.

I'm not the OP and I don't hunt but why is everyone offended by hunting, but OK with fishing?

Aren't they the same thing??

I think the issue with hunting may be reduced to folks’ opinions of guns. Most other countries don’t share America’s love of firearms.

Fishermen and women generally eat their catch. Lots of hunters are out for trophies. I can’t think of anything that one might shoot and eat on Aruba.
