Hunting in Belarus

Belarus is a country of fantastic and unspoiled natural areas and has been attracting more real lovers of exotic hunting adventures from all over the world lately.

One of the most important factors in favor of high-quality hunting is the vast expanse of Belarusian territory, about 40 % of which is covered by primeval forests of different types. In addition, boundless meadows, thousands of enchanting lakes, and unique marshes are all features contributing to satisfy the most exigent hunter.

Among wild animals, Aurochs (European bison) is considered a symbol of our country. Being extremely rare species (CITES-1) it can be found in some National parks. Nevertheless, Aurochs hunting is allowed and represents one of the most exotic Belarusian hunting attractions.

In regard to big hunt, we can't help but mention elk, red deer, roe deer, wild boar and wolf. Belarusian wild boar is distinguished by its remarkable tusks dimensions: just try to imagine a hunter's joy and enthusiasm when his trophy collection is enriched by exclusive tusks of 250-270 mm (10 inches and more!)

Wolf hunting is perceived by many people as a real challenge requiring exceptional courage. It is possible to hunt a wolf after the first fall of snow starting in November or December. Elk hunting is allowed from September to November, red deer from September till January; roe deer may be hunted in summer and autumn and the remarkable Belarusian wild boar from May till January, thus our marvelous forests welcome hunters almost all the year round.

In regard to game-bird it is really impossible to resist the excitement of shooting ducks, partridges, woodcocks (both in spring and in autumn), turtle doves, ring doves, geese and snipes. Various duck species are easily found in Belarus: pochard, teal, shoveller, mallard, pintail etc. On average a hunter shoots 20-25 ducks per day.

Nevertheless, spring hunting for capercailze and black grouse is considered one of the most thrilling and breathtaking.

We will do our best for you to get an unforgettable hunting experience in the country, which spreads its charms over real lovers of good hunting.
