Trophy hunting in Russia is the last great adventure on Earth
Unlike other hunting destinations around the globe, Russia is a country where you can find enormous swathes of pristine, unspoiled, virgin wilderness in which man has never set foot. That wilderness, moreover, is replete with some of the most spectacular big-game hunting, fishing, and bird trophies nature has to offer. It is, we can say without fear of contradiction, every big-game hunter and trophy hunter’s dream and the true ‘last frontier’ of hunting.
If you are serious and passionate about big-game hunting or are a bird collector, fishing enthusiast or avid adventurer, then you owe it to yourself to come and enjoy the best and most exhilarating experience our planet has to offer in each of the above activities.
Take it from me, Sergei Shushunov, a man who has hunted in Russia and its neighboring countries since 1975 and a hunter who has dedicated his life to exploring this unique terrain from top to tail and sharing those experiences with fellow hunters since 1990 through Russian Hunting Agency LLC.
Hunting and fishing in Russia
Russia is home to some of the most remote, untouched and wild terrain anywhere in the world.
The Russian Federation alone has over 6.6 million square miles of territory and up to 80% of that territory is estimated to be wilderness. This comprises vast mountain ranges, tundra, steppes, plains, and forests that stretch for thousands of miles, all studded with over two million lakes, cut by mighty rivers and spectacular waterfalls, and backed by majestic peaks and breathtaking alpine meadows. Backdrops for big-game hunts and fishing trips don’t come more mind-blowing or picturesque than this.
If you are looking for a big-game hunting safari in Russia, fishing trip, or bird collecting expedition that is truly unforgettable and unlike anything that might be found elsewhere, Russia and Central Asia are very much ‘the promised land’. Trips here combine a true challenge of your skills and offer up the reward of matchless trophies and scenery, all while satisfying your spirit of adventure in locations that are without peer the world over.
From Eurasian Brown Bear hunting in Russia’s wild northwest, wolf hunting in St. Petersburg and the northeastern tundra, or lynx hunting in Siberia or northwestern Russia to Atlantic salmon fishing on the Kola Peninsula, duck hunting in the European Arctic’s White Sea and woodcock, capercaillie, and black grouse hunting in St. Petersburg and Karelia, we boast a wide selection of unique, tailor-made hunts, fishing trips, and expeditions that cater for every wish and hunters of all levels of ability. The one factor common to all of our trips is that each one guarantees to provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the company of highly professional guides in an utterly unique setting.

About Russian Hunting Agency LLC
Russian Hunting Agency, LLC is one of the oldest outfitting agencies in Russia. The company was established in 1990 by Sergei Shushunov with offices in the US and St. Petersburg, Russia. Since then it has hosted hundreds of satisfied clients from all over the world. We offer hunting, fishing, and adventure travel tours in many parts of the Russian Federation and Central Asia, as well as in many other countries in the region, including, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Mongolia.
We create tailor made itineraries and tours that cater for the wishes and needs of every client, from the hardened hunter with decades of large game-hunting experience to the near novice with only a handful of hunts under their belt. While each of our trips promises to take you into remote, wild, and outlying terrain, moreover, for those who wish to relax and enjoy a few creature comforts between hunts, we offer accommodation in modern cabins or hunting lodges while on your hunting or fishing tour.
Our staff and guides are passionate hunters and fishermen themselves. Many of them hold degrees in wildlife biology and are knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive hunt companions. Our contracts with wildlife authorities, hunters and farmers in the regions where we take our clients, moreover, give our hunters and fishermen access to the best territories and locations available.
The sheer size of Russia and the diversity of its landscapes, the uniqueness of its culture, and the exceptional nature of its wildlife can make it difficult to select a suitable guide for hunting or fishing. Understanding this difficulty and the potential logistical issues surrounding a hunting or fishing trip in Russia and its neighboring territories are a large part of what led to the founding of Russian Hunting LLC almost three decades ago.
Since then, our passion for our sport and desire to share the unique experiences on offer in this region have inspired us to organize and outfit some of the finest and most exciting expeditions and tours across Russia and its neighboring Asian and Eastern European countries for clients from all walks of life and from every corner of the globe. For each client we have delivered an experience that we believe no other hunting destination or outfitter in the world can come close to matching.
Russian Hunting Agency LLC is a member of Safari Club International, Ovis Club, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, and Dallas Safari Club.
Sergei Shushunov: Founder of Russian Hunting Agency LLC
Welcome to Russian Hunting Agency LLC!
Over the past almost 40 years, I have made my dreams as a big-game hunter, trophy hunter and fisherman in Russia and surrounding countries come true. My objective as founder and director of Russian Hunting Agency LLC is to share these unique experiences with as many fellow hunters as possible and facilitate the fulfillment of their dreams.
My knowledge of the land in which our hunts take place is perhaps second to none – from the Arctic tundra in the north to the Mongolian steppes and Central Asian mountains in the South, and from Eastern Europe to the wild Pacific shores, there are very few spots in which I have not cast my flies or that I have not called a happy hunting ground.
Each of these locations have been my stomping and stalking grounds since I participated in my first hunt back in 1975 and they are places to which I have returned repeatedly over the years as not only as a hunt leader and outfitter, but as a bona fide lover of the world’s wildest places.
As a hunter who has lived his life in pursuit of his passions I know the all-consuming desire for adventure that burns in your heart – because it also burns in mine. With Russian Hunting Agency LLC, my aim is to ensure you fulfill those desires with the help of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and skilled guides.
I look forward to seeing you on one of my hunting or fishing expeditions sometime soon.
