Ruling on Hunting Wild Animals


Sallam Alikum What’s the ruling on the hunting of wild animals slaughter? If you fire and kill the animal, do it still need to alive when you reach to slaughter? Do you need to read Bismillah when firing, essentially all the ruling about killing and slaughter wild animal please


Waalykum salam 

Thank you for your Question. 
Ayatullah Sistani under the title of Dress code general rule has explained the following: 
The second method is that they are hunted by using a gun. In the latter case, the hunter must be a Muslim; he must invoke Allãh’s name while pulling the trigger; he must shoot with the purpose of hunting, and get to the place where the animal fell after it has died or when there was not enough time to slaughter it. 
Kindly refer to the link below for a comeplete read,

Leather products are impure (najis) and salãt in them is not permissible, if we know that they have been made from the hide of an animal not slaughtered according to Islamic laws.
Kind regards,
