Lynx hunt in Kirov region (European part of Russia)
Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) is one of the most beautiful Russian forest mammals. It is a very shy carnivore, seldom seen by humans. The Eurasian lynx is the largest of the world’s lynxes. It is a medium-sized cat with relatively long legs, black ear tufts and a short tail with dark tip. Its reddish-gray or yellow-gray fur is usually covered with dark spots. The paws are densely furred for walking in the snow. The winter coat is very beautiful - long, soft and thick. Light feet, acute hearing and sense of smell allow this predator to become a hard to get trophy for the hunter.
We organized this hunt in hunting areas located in Kirov, Vologda, Izhevsk in central Russia (European part).
November - January.
You will arrive to the international Moscow airport. Our PRO interpreter will meet you at the airport and assist you with customs formalities. You will be taken to the hotel or will drive by train the same day to the hunting area.
Camp and accommodation
Most of our hunting lodges are simple wooden houses with low modern comfort. But they are clean and warm. They have double accommodation and separate dinning room.
During daylight hours the temperature is 14-5oF/-10-15oC and during nighttime is -4-14oF/-10-20oC.
Preconditions for successful hunt are: you need to be in a good shape, it has to be snow on the ground (in small amount to have a chance to read fresh tracks) and good trained dogs. High percentage success rate can be guaranteed through working with dogs. There are specially trained for Lynx hunting husky dogs. Hunt gets started as soon as a fresh track of a male lynx will be located and then traced by these dogs. This is the best way because lynx will be driven up to a tree and dogs make loud barking signals for a hunter to come. Such kind of a hunt makes this experience unforgettable. It is better to conduct this hunt on a shallow snow early in the season between November and December. Upon completion of the hunt, there is an opportunity to harvest Moose or Wild Boar in the same area. Depending on snow during the hunt you will use jeep and/or skidoo. The success rate with good weather conditions here is approx. 80% to 90%.
