Depends on the canton. Canton ZH for example is divided into 169 hunting districts. Each district is leased to a hunters society for 8 years. Only those are allowed to hunt (with a few exceptions), exclusively, on nearly any property.

The number of hunters in each society is regulated and each new member needs the permission of the commune. A society can invite a guest hunter.

But first and foremost you will need a hunting license.
And the hunting license is no easy feat either, this is how it works in Zürich:

A written exam in german (based on a 400 page textbook covering everything from hunting dog breeds to the breeding season of stoats to animal diseases) and a shooting exam with shotgun and rifle has to be passed in order to become an hunting trainee, for lack of a better term. Once that's done you have to hook up with a local hunting group as a trainee. After that you take the actual practical hunting exam at least 2 years or a maximum of 6 years after passing the trainee test. Once all that is done, you can try to join up with a group to lease a district for a hefty fee. And then it's not all fun and games as either, as the leasees of each district are legally required to cull a certain percentage of deer to keep the population in check, are collectively liable for damages caused to local forests and farmlands by game animals, and a member of the group is required to be on call 24/7 by the police in order track and find any animals involved in vehicular accidents.
