I am a Gamo Shadow 1000 owner and am a serious plinker. Now I am planning to bump my game up a bit. I need to know where can we hunt Rabbits or Jackals/Fox with an Airgun in Islamabad and does it require a permit.

I initially though Shadow @ 1000fps can not deliver a clean kill but I have nailed few rabbits (headshots) and a Fluff Tailed Fox at little over or around 50 meters. Islamabad is new to me and I do not know where the hunting spots are. Maybe someone here can help!

bro Islamabad comes under Margalla national park jurisdiction that mean any kind of hunting is strictly forbidden even with a air gun , by law you cant even kill sparrows in Islamabad if the police catches you you will lose your weapon and will face unneeded hassle ., as for killing a fox i would strictly recommend you not to do so as they have actually gone endangered in this area because of people killing them for there tail and fur . jackal you can hunt but remember killing it would be HARAM as its not a game animal in our culture and religion , but it can be hunted or culled under pest control programme just like a wild bore , but please what ever you do , donot hunt it with a airgun , it can kill it but causes unbearble misery and pain for the animal (fox,jackal) trust me i have hunted with Pcp air gun in Uk and Pakistan forget what the forums say a airgun is not enough to kill a jackal or a fox special a jackal those buggers some time even survive a 12 gauge shot .
i would advise you to go to near by areas like jhang , attock and surrounding and shot wild pigeons or doves specialy wild pigeons they are in season now a days and are much more fun then shooting a fox or a jackal .

@Gen.Mastan; Sir in the near past before terrorism tensions we enjoyed very good Wild Boar legal hunts in Islamabad around Sector-E, Quad-e-Azam University, Imam Bari Sarkar, Chattar & Gulshan-e-Qadir towards west face near Rawal Lake by NOC iuused by CDA.
But all other animals/ birds are banned due to National Park status.

And many times at early morning hours; I enjoyed Peacocks "Mast Walks" and around "Shakar Parian and "Kashmir Highway", and Black Partridges songs and short flights along with road from Lock Versa to Sports Complex. These all beautiful dreams violated by human developments.

well said dear!!!
we must avoid killing such animals & birds, (except in the cases where they get the status of pests e.g increasing population of wild boars etc),
but if v dont then v r going to ruin the food chain at first and then the whole system of wild life.
