The aim of this research is to be examined and analysed the socio- economic characteristics of hunters of province Elassona, in the Prefecture of Larissa. The methodology that will follow will be models of linear regression with the method of least square and with models Logit for the more complete analysis of characteristics of hunters. The authentic project analyse also with descriptive statistics as X2 -Karl Pearson- of independence, X2 of good fitting and graphs, the socio- economic characteristics of hunters of province Elassona. I Have done This project as I was student in the department of Economic Science in university of Thessaly in city Volos. But I preferred to send you only the econometric part, as I consider it more important, in contrary the statistical analysis, which is more simple and trite. Front however we begin the analysis, it deserves we are reported in the A Pan-Hellenic hunting congress that was organised in Piraeus in 1932 with subjects as the determination the hunting species and not, the advisable way and time of these hunting, the effective protection of endemic prey and the prohibition of transaction during the year, as well as the organisation of local councils of hunting and the local funds of hunting. Many of the conclusions of congress propose most serious curtailments in the means of hunting, allowing only the firearm arm and prohibiting the manufacture, marketing, possession and use of each other means, as for example loops, fish-hook, plates, poisons as well as other auxiliary manufacture as the, barkers, partridges hunting as well as the hunting of partridges in water or hare with follow-up of traces in the snow. In 1939 are published the law L.1926 'About hunting', which in the substance incarnated the requirements and the wishes of hunting circles. Then the first efforts of protection of wild life concerned mainly the migrating species, after the migrating birds are faced with... exceptions. The time hunting as it is fixed by the article 261(as was modified by article L. 996/1971 and the article 8 L. 177/1975): 1. The hunting year begins from 1 August and expires 31 July of next year. 2. The hunting period for the preys which the hunting of them allowed, it begins: a) Of hare, from 15 September and it expires 10 January. b) The mountainous partridge from 10 September and it expires 10 March. c) Of flat partridge from 1 October and it expires the 30 November. d) For the remaining preys from 15 September and it expires 10 March, apart from the turtledoves, tree-living (eagle-fighter fig-eating) and remaining pigeon-species, as the quails, that the hunting of them begins on 20 August. Is allowed the hunting only at the duration of day and from 11 March and up to the beginning of hunting period is allowed the fighting with poisons of harmful preys, with concern and responsibility of hunting associations, as is allowed also the arrest, without arm, in the nests of this nurslings, up to their destruction . From 1950 and afterwards the environmental problems they exceed also the most ominous forecasts and acquire characteristically universality with main parameter the inequality growth between developed also developing world. The fruition of the wild animals have been checked to a large extent but have not been checked the increasing destructions of ecotypes The ecosystems that first fell victims of growth of societies were the wetlands that were connected with the event and the distribution of illnesses, the venturous ness and the animosity for the person. France possesses first prizes in Europe draining by 140.000 hectares the year. Ireland from the initial extent of 1.175.579 hectares in 1982 had only 578.350 hectares, that is to say the 49%.The USA has finally lost the 54% from her wetlands. Switzerland from 1800 up to today has destroyed finally the 85-90% wetlands while in Central and Southern America of the 1/5 of wetlands that was recognized as international importance they are threatened immediately by desiccation for agricultural and veterinary uses. Greece only the last 70-80 years has lost the 61% of wetlands certain from which they were irreplaceable for the wild birds.
