The accommodations will vary, depending on the hunting area and the game you choose to hunt. In the European part of the country one would usually stay in a comfortable hunting lodge with running water, hot shower and indoor toilet. Some lodges offer meals prepared by gourmet chefs. In remote areas of the country, like in Siberia, living conditions can range from a tent camp to a rustic log hut, to a farmhouse.
Food is plentiful, mostly local, consisting of farm raised and various game meats, cooked vegetables, potatoes, wild berries, mushrooms and dairy products. Private chef, select wines and gourmet food items can be provided with prior notification at additional cost.
There are no problems bringing your rifle or shotgun into Russia. Handguns are not allowed. We will handle all the necessary formalities to obtain the permits. This may take up to two months and will require informing us of the make, model, serial number and a caliber of the weapon. You are allowed to bring 2 firearms and 100 rounds of ammunition for each weapon. Lead shot is permitted on all waterfowl hunts. Shells for waterfowl hunts can be bought in Russia. The gun permit will be given to you at the airport by one of our staff who will help you clear customs.
