Gamekeeping in Czechoslovakia is similar to that in other countries of central Europe because of the common aristocratic origin of the hunting tradition. Ownership of game by the state resembles that of Poland, but differs from West Germany and Austria where game belongs to the landowner. Regardless of ownership, the basic, objective of game management remains the same--maintenance of quality game populations in harmony with forestry and agriculture. Game management is intensive as reflected by plans for breeding, winter feeding of hooved game, carefully detailed harvest, and strict hunter qualification. Intensification of game management in America, if the European experience is guideworthy, will probably require greater direct and indirect participation by the hunter in environmental concerns at local and national levels.
