Boar and hunting for him

Wild boar (wild pig) has long been a welcome trophy of hunters all over the world. It is a serious, smart and quick-witted beast. In the old days it was called the boar. He is always ready to fend for himself and at the same time can be very dangerous. Here is what Alexander Alexandrovich Cherkasov writes about this in his book, Notes of the Hunter of Eastern Siberia:

Here is what Alexander Alexandrovich Cherkasov writes about this in his book, Notes of the Hunter of Eastern Siberia:

“… look at the billhook, when dogs catch up with him, stop him, hunters will fly up and surround him from all sides, and when he sees trouble, he will defend himself. All the fur on it will rise on end, his eyes will burn with courage and throw terrible sparks from his mouth with clubs white foam fells, and the chopper either stands still, waiting for an attack, puffs and whetsts its huge white fangs with fury, then it flies at enemies with a bold, swift, Continue reading

Woodcock and Dupel Hunt

Dupel is much less common snipe and most hunter-legati are valued higher than snipe. Usually, the dupel is spoken of as the first, best swamp game, however, S.T. Aksakov argues with this opinion: “I gave the first place to the snipe, but not all hunters will agree with me. Usually they prefer a hollow, which is almost twice as large (which the German name also shows (“dupelynnep” means “double snipe.” – AP)), and this is not a trifle in hunting. The hollow is much fatter than the snipe, therefore, it is tastier, it lets the hunter and dog closer, makes the stand longer, flies quieter and straighter. Here are the reasons why hunters consider him the first, best swamp game. Without contesting these justifiable reasons, I repeat that I give the first place to the snipe for the speed of the flight and for the fact that it is incomparably more difficult to kill it. ” Continue reading

How to catch a large carp – chasing a trophy

Probably, there is not a single avid angler who would say with honest eyes that he does not like carp fishing. After all, it was small carpans and carps that once at a young age delighted us so, only occasionally getting caught in the hook with the ubiquitous carpentry and crucian carp. Catching a large carp is not an easy task, but extremely interesting and exciting!

Since then, little has changed in this regard, the only thing is that the gear has become an order of magnitude more reliable and high-tech, and the fish is more cunning and biased towards the nozzles.

Trophy carp caught on bottom tackle

In the Stavropol Territory, as, in my opinion, in many other regions, there are two types of carp fishing – fishing in stocked reservoirs, with almost a 100% guarantee of catching “standard” sizes of fish, and fishing in wild reservoirs (canals, rivers, reservoirs) , where the chance of catching a carp is low, but the size of the catch is most unpredictable. An example is the Continue reading
