You don't have to go as far as Asia for this I'm afraid. Staggeringly, the following species are still legal quarry species in France for example;

Lapwing
Grey Plover
Golden Plover
Oystercatcher
Spotted Redshank
Greenshank
Redshank
Whimbrel
Eurasian Curlew
Black-tailed Godwit
Bar-tailed Godwit
Red Knot
Ruff
