Bear Hunting in Russia

The bear, inhabiting our forests everywhere, is one of the largest predators of enormous strength and endurance with excellent hearing, reaction and coordination of movements, a beautiful swimmer and runner. It can catch a horse on a short distance. The bear is extremely smart, calm enough and even coward a bit but it is not friendly in any case. In certain conditions itís very aggressive and dangerous. In central Russia the bearís coat color is light brown, in Kamchatka it is chocolate. The weight of certain bears is up to 500 kg (1,100 lb) and the body length is 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) or more.

In recent years, the bear hunting in Vologda has been permitted only in the summer and autumn. The spring hunting has been forbidden for many years due to the limited number of animals but today the ban is lifted. Now over seven thousand of bears inhabit the pristine forests of the Vologda region. This means that real connoisseurs will be able to hunt in April and May when bears leave their dens after hibernation.

In addition to bears, in Vologda you can hunt moose, wild boar and various birds.

Den Bear Hunting

There is a lot of bear hunting types, including hunting on oat fields, stalking, hunting with dogs, hunting by means of a dead big animal, hunting in pursuit, but the den bear hunting is considered one of the most exciting and risky adventures in the life of a hunter. Hunters approach to a den when an animal is still asleep, then hunters take their seats around it and dogs wake up the bear by barking. Adrenaline runs high at such moments as the animal, irritated by the interrupted sleep, may jump out in an unexpected place.
