Hunting in the name of God

Salamu Alykum brothers and sisters

Does anyone know if anything has been discussed or written about how one may hunt by also keeping the requirement of the animal being "Halal"(killed/slaughtered in the name of God)?

Hunting animals like deer, elk, moose, etc.

The reason I ask is that, if one was to try to just injure the animal and try to catch it after while its still alive there is the possibility that one may not find it and it will escape being only injured which would be a lose lose situation for both the animal and the hunter. Which also in some countries I think its not allowed unless you try to get the animal with one shot so it does not suffer.

I know a verse in the Quran that requires the Muslims to train their hunting animals(dogs, birds etc) in a way that God has trained them to catch by which they may eat from. I remember reading about one may train their dog to bring the animal live and then one may slaughter in the name of God. I would assume this would be mainly for catching birds.

5:4 They ask thee what is lawful to them (as food). Say: lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what ye have taught your trained hunting animals (to catch) in the manner directed to you by Allah: eat what they catch for you, but pronounce the name of Allah over it: and fear Allah; for Allah is swift in taking account.


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

May God bless you all
