Hunting & Fishing
MOOSE

This is one of the largest species among the angulated. It weighs approximately 800-850 kg. It presents one of the most sought-after objects of sports hunting. Here are the three most widely used techniques for hunting it:

(1) Hunting at salt-rocks - in dusk and dark (summer, August, 15-30). A hunter and a guide wait in their hideout for 5-6 hours for the animal to come to the rock-salt bait.

(2) Hound chase. A very dynamic and rapid type of hunting. A hunter and a guide approach the animal which is distracted by the hounds up to 50-60 m (October, 1 through January, 15).

(3) Hunting by approach. Here sport means patience. This technique is based on the guide`s intimate knowledge of the migration patterns of the animal and its feeding habits. The guide will lead the hunter to within 120-150 m of the animal. It takes a good steady shot to hit the possibly running animal at that range (October, 1 through January, 15).

SIBERIAN/MANCHURIAN DEER

The most beautiful and graceful species of Siberian angulated fauna. Its massive antlers (up to 10 kg) could make excellent trophy for a most seasoned hunter. Here are four most widely employed techniques for hunting it:

(1) Hunting at salt-rocks. This technique does not differ much from that for the MOOSE.

(2) Bellow-echoing. This is one of the most spectacular and picturesque techniques of hunting in Siberia. It is based on the instinct of the male MANCHURIAN DEER to take the challenge of another male and come out to lock its antlers against the intruder and chase it, if possible, beyond the boundaries of its own territory. The bellowing of MANCHURIAN DEER is the song of Siberian wilderness. This type of hunting will provide the hunter with more intimate knowledge and understanding of the harmony and beauty of Siberian nature. A hunter and a guide may, either mounted or on foot, approach the site where animals are concentrated and then the guide will call one male deer out so that the range between the hunter and his target may be something between 50-60 m (September, 15 through October, 5).

(3) Hound chase. This technique is similar to that for the MOOSE, the only difference being that the hounds chase the animal to one and the same spot every time - that is, to a certain area of large boulders, where a hunter and a guide will lie in wait for the animal (October, 1 through December, 15).

(4) Hunting by concealed approach. This technique is similar to that for the MOOSE.

SIBERIAN ROE-DEER

It is one of the most popular and abundant hunting species in Siberia. Some individual males weight up to 60 kg. There are two most widely used techniques for hunting it:

(1) Hunting at salt-rocks (August, 15 through September, 25). Same as for the MANCHURIAN DEER.

(2) Hunting by concealed approach. Same as for the MOOSE (November, 1 through November, 20).

SIBERIAN MUSK-DEER

This is the smallest and most peculiar deer species of Siberia. It weighs up to 15 kg. The trophy for the lucky hunter will not be its antlers, as with other deer species, but its fangs which in adult males sometimes reach 12 cm in length. Here are the two most widely used techniques to hunt it:

(1) Hound chase. Same as for the MANCHURIAN DEER.

(2) Concealed approach. Excellent sport which takes attention, stamina and skill. A hunter and a guide follow the animal`s trail and, as this species are extremely curious animals, they will let the party approach them to within the range of direct shot (October, 20 through January, 15).

BROWN BEAR

This is the king of Siberian wilderness. Hunting it is very dangerous and complicated. Traditionally a man was termed a proper hunter in Russia only after he killed his first bear. For sports parties the following are the most common techniques of hunting:

(1) Baiting. It is based on feeding the animal to a certain spot. The hunter, sitting at some elevated position (for example on a tree) waits for the beast to come to the bait to shoot it (May, 1 through June, 10; August, 1 through September, 30).

(2) Hound chase. Same as for the MOOSE.

(3) Den hunting. This technique requires three assistant guides. Two assistants block the beast in its den with wooden poles. The third is free to help the hunter. As the beast tries to get out from the den, the poles will prevent its speedy escape. Meanwhile the hunter has enough time for several shots at 2-3 m range. Should the hunter miss or only wound the bear, the assistant guide will be ready to finish it off to avoid possible accident (December, 10 through March, 1).

SNOW/MOUNTAIN SHEEP

The most valuable part of the animal for the lucky hunter`s trophy will be its antlers, which sometimes exceed 1 m 15 sm in length. This is a very interesting and exciting type of hunting. Siberian mountains are some of the most picturesque and breathtaking sights of the world. Hunters will be transported to the mountains either by helicopter or on horseback, and during the days to follow will be given all the possible chances to pursue their luck. The hunt itself is basically a concealed approach to within the range of direct shot (August, 4 through October, 30).

SIBERIAN IBEX
Its antlers are no less valuable a trophy than those of a MOUNTAIN/SNOW SHEEP. In adult males the length of antlers often exceeds 1 m 30 sm. The hide of SIBERIAN IBEX is also rightfully listed as one of the most valuable hunting trophies. The Sayan Mountains are one of the most beautiful and popular hunting terrains of Siberia. They are the habitat of a variety of rare and valuable animal and plant species. Besides, the meat and the blood of of SIBERIAN IBEX are considered extremely useful in the traditional medical systems of Tibet. The hunting of IBEX is no different from that for the MOUNTAIN SHEEP (June, 1 through December, 30).

CAPERCAILYE

This is the largest bird species of Siberian fauna. An adult male weighs up to 5.5 kg, and a female about 3.0 kg. This bird is a symbol of Russian spring. Thus the best way for a hunter to get better acquainted with the beauty of Siberian nature in spring is to experience a CAPERCAILYE hunt. The trophy for the lucky one will be either a complete stuffed bird or its skin. There are three most widely used techniques for hunting this species:

(1) Mating-place hunt. This is the most popular technique of hunting the CAPERCAILYE in Russia. A hunter and a guide approach singing bird. There is no need for a concealed approach, as the bird does not hear anything while singing. The Russian name for the bird - "glookhar" is derived from the Russian word "glookhoi" - deaf (April, 25 through May, 10; August, 25 through January, 13).

(2) Concealed approach. A hunter and a guide tour the places frequented by the birds at dawn. This is a genuine sports hunting. It takes skill to hit a bird taking off from an unexpected direction, because the bird is usually the first to sight the hunter.

CARIBOU (REINDEER)
Caribous are migratory animals, so the best places to hunt them He along the routes of their migrations. The actual hunt can be done both by concealed approach or by watching for the animals from an ambush. Both male and female CARIBOUS have antlers that will be the trophy for the successful hunter. The males weigh about 100-150 kg (220-330 Lbs), females up to 90 kg. (August, 15 through December, 1)

SABLE, SQUIRREL, LYNX, WOLVERINES
This kind of hunting could be best described as an adventure in Siberian wilderness. The hunter and his guide are assisted by a pack of laika hounds. The hounds track animals and drive them to bay into trees. The hunter`s job is to catch up with the dogs and shoot the animal. Additional species, such as MOOSE, DEER, etc. could be bagged in the course of this exciting, genuine sports hunting. The excitement makes the hunter forget about the fatigue and sometimes the party covers up to 30 km pursuing the trophy on foot. The hunting day is crowned with the dinner cooked over a bonfire. This submersion into the outdoors is undoubtedly the best way to experience the unspoilt beauty of Siberian nature. (October, 20 through December, 10).

HASEL-GROUSE

This bird is a close relative of the capercailye. In spite of its relatively small size (400-450 g/about 1 pound), the hunt for it may prove very exciting. There are two most widely used techniques for hunting it (August, 25 through January, 15):

(1) Concealed approach. Same as for the CAPERCAILYE.

(2) Lure hunting. A guide lures a bird that flies within the range. The hunter may choose to shoot it either in midair or on the ground.

DUCKS & GEESE

DUCKS and GEESE are migratory birds, that is why the best places for hunting them lie along the routes of their migration when they make stopovers for rest and food in numerous small water-bodies and marshes. The hunter should be able to hit the bird in midair at the outer limit of a shotgun effective range, that is 30-40 m (100-130 ft). Please, don`t forget to bring sufficient supply of ammunition for this hunt. (March, 25 through May, 15; August, 25 through October, 5)
