Uf, I am not hunter and i am not fully aware of all issues that come with hunting, but:
There is special gun licence for hunting, that is easy to get.
Then you need to pass some exams about gamekeeping knowledge - some say its hard exam, but i have no idea if its true.
Then you need to joint some gamekeeping club that will enable you to shoot specified amount of game e.g. 1x elk 5x wild boar etc.. You will be required to do some job there - like feeding animals at winter.
Plus hunters are obligated to be insured.
Other option is to hunt in private enclosed areas where game is kept, but it cost arm and leg to shoot something there.
With rifles you are supposed to shoot only in safe direction and never over horison - Czech countryside is rather packed, so you would shoot over few villages...
Iam more interested in two legged vermin.

How far can I get speaking English only?
There are expats who speak no Czech even after 10 years of residence.
On the other hand, any atempt to speak Czech language is greatly appreciated.
How difficult to learn Czech?
Ask this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JO-6CsEH9FA&feature=relmfu
Other good option is Slovakia, they have something like "castle doctrine", but mandatory psycho-tests and some kind of committee approval of ccw...
Big plus is that lasers are legal. Czech "NRA" Gunlex hepled to establish Slovakian equivalesnt Legis Telum. Both countries cooperate even after the disolution of Czechoslovakia, afterall Slovakia is the only place we can shoot at kilometer distance.
