About hunting in Europe
Whether you hunt ibex in Spain, chamois in Austria, grouse in Scotland, or wild boars in Romania, hunting in Europe is a fascinating and rewarding experience. Hunting in Europe is inextricably intertwined with the continent’s rich history, and the customs and traditions that have been passed down through the generations are an important part of the adventure. European countries are known for their intensive scientific game management, which has led to excellent trophy quality for many species. Hunting in Europe is also a great choice for a hunter who wishes to combine a few days of hunting with a family vacation or business trip. Hunts in Europe tend to be well-organized, sophisticated operations. A variety of hunting techniques are utilized, depending on the country and the species. Driven hunts for big game are common in many areas, but spot-and-stalk as well as hunting from stands or “high seats” are common techniques as well. Europe’s big-game animals include chamois, several types of ibex, mouflon, red deer, moose, reindeer, wild boar, sika deer, wolves, and Eurasian brown bears. Game birds are also plentiful, including black, red, and willow grouse, ptarmigan, geese, ducks, woodcock, snipe, red-legged partridge, and pheasant.

Spring hunt 3x3 Russia
Classical capercaillie and blackcock spring hunting in dense forests of Kirov region. Capercaillie is the relict bird, came to us as far back as the times of dinosaurs. A spring hunting a capercaillie, while uttering a mating call, gives us the unforgettable emotions. Some hunters go to this hunting only for the sake of listening to a capercaillie’s morning song in the awakening spring forest. To come to the capercaillie within a shot, it is easier while it is uttering a mating call. Usually, it is very cautious, but during performing a mating ritual, it does not hear not only suspicious rustles, but even a great noise. They shoot the capercaillie always “at singing”, while uttering a mating call, and if the shot missed the target, the bird does not pay any attention to it. Only, it is necessary to shoot during the second part of the song, when it is not yet finished.
