Is it necessary to slaughter an animal which has been hunted with a gun?
It is necessary to slaughter such an animal that is hunted with a bullet. Regardless of whether the hunter recites Bismillah before shooting or not, merely hitting the hunted animal with the bullet does not render its meat Halaal for consumption. The animal, once struck, will have to be slaughtered reciting Bismillah while it is still alive. Failing to slaughter it on time and slaughtering it after it has died will not render the meat Halaal..
