All our guys will be fine, but not at once!

Here are published the next new hunting rules in Russia, that’s brought us another small step to the German model of game management. Slightly crushed and driven hunt seriously «trimmed» spring.
With spring terms of diversity of waterfowl and upland game came out a masterpiece — should at least look at its author, science fiction writer, luminary game management. But extended periods of moose. A wild boar, and all were given carte blanche. Shots “private” farms, and even then not all, in fact, now be interrupted only for one month — May. Thus, it solved one of the biggest problems in obtaining revenue from Hunting — seasonality. The papers just some added at registration permits (and they did not have before!). “Amendments” These are likely not the last, will be the next small steps and in a westerly direction.
But God is with them, with the rules, they do not comply with them and almost no one. It’s not about that. It’s about how we live, urban hunters as hunting, what we think and what we expect. On the hunting gods, who sometimes fall from the sky in the Altai, in other places, we will not worry — about them, if anything, MES worry. Talk about yourself.
During recent visits me a lot and many had a chance to talk to hunters and rangers in different places — the good hunting because of widespread snowdrifts was actually disrupted. Well then do not sit with good people under the cucumbers with mushrooms and talk! And that’s what comes out. Almost all the hunters from the regional centers live bad, hunt a little to think about their daily bread, are worried about the children and with the irony of the authorities thought it would be worse. Although too much, it would seem worse? In the case of regional hunters a little better, but the overall mood of the same.
What worries or, more correctly, infuriates urban fellow hunting passion from the European regions of Russia? Firstly, the constant rise in prices for everything, including hunting in the background throughout the established (or established?) Meager salaries. Secondly, the reduction of available familiar almost since childhood, narrow-minded and usually the richest hunting grounds. This is either formed (captured) in the past seven years so-called private sector (although some are private? Land a federal, t. E. The whole people!) Or public hunting grounds, in which chairman of the Society and Director of hunting leases so busy commerce and sick green a disease that you forget not only about the party — “rank and file” hunters, but their own members of societies for the people really do not believe, though contributions and working out regularly collected from them. And do not forget for a minute in any way, but to tear. Prices even change from private traders and businessmen, public figures such that breathtaking.
This is when the hunting day on every detail of the grouse to the hare starts from 300 rubles and 1000 does not end there. All this, of course, without maintenance. Especially all “pleases”If you know that the populations of bog-meadow, grouse, hares, ducks, grouse, capercaillie is not controlled private traders, chairman of the society or the Director of farms, and not even the Lord God,… Who? Correctly! Well-fed, caressed, numerous herds of wild boars and insolent. All in fact seen the ubiquitous towers overgrown with wild boar, like mushrooms, picturesque glades. Here is the priority of our European game management (repeat: our, because we have no other, and the other is not needed) the country! That’s why many farms began to forget how to hounds cops look. And God forbid, you bring your — boar scare. Boars scare — their appetite worsens, will rarely go to the tower. Plan on svinoboyne shaft may fall, while a little less money in the pockets of race, but should something more and more. Net commerce!
I read here to “HORN” Zalogina a couple of articles about the exciting twists and turns of the night killing of piglets from the tower. Threw would you, Victor, a hunt, or at least did not describe her signature “hunting expert”. Well, yes, we shoot and enclosures are lovers. This is normal: everyone — her!
But even more enraged ordinary hunters “Agriculture”In which, and not at the price lists. This is usually the major power brokers Economy — business, various persons close. There’s always a barrier at the entrance and guards, armed to the teeth. However, from the local I heard a couple of stories about hunting raids on such farms. Typically, in situations where there is no supervision, security is pretty modest. All this reminded me of some read in the almanac “Hunting spaces” tales of raids on private forest garden at the beginning of the last century. Everything was exactly the same as it is today, with the exception of UAZ and motor boats. Everything in history really repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. The tragedies we probably suffice. So, we will observe a farce.
So who is focused our current hunting? Let’s estimate. Hunter Busy Weekend for 600 kilometers will not go: and expensive, and it makes no sense — more than a lot of time on the road to spend. So it goes for 100, 200, a maximum of 300 km. The budget of such a trip only for gasoline is now in the thousands of fly half — two and a half! Plus, take a minute, plus a cot removed (if the winter or late fall or early spring), plus a meal to buy, well, drink, respectively! In short, 8–10,000 prepare, and if together, then five for each, and then without much glamor. Somehow not traveling when 20–50 thousand. Per month you get, and now people are really periphery 7–12 plow without weekends. So much for the trip! This led me to hunt small thing, but with game interesting is bigger! Now therefore:
— grouse (spring) — 2000–5000;
— capercaillie (spring) — 5000–10000;
— boar — 15,000–30,000–45,000 (fingerlings, pig / sexually mature, trophy);
— Elk — 40,000–60,000–80,000 (bull, maturity / cow, trophy);
— bear — 40,000–100000–25, 0000 (the average animal, large, trophy) — Price varies greatly depending on the place of hunting (the most expensive of Kamchatka and animals from 300 kg).
So much for the non-compliance and non-compliance with laws and the so-called legal nihilism! So how do we hunt? A very simple. In all there were (or are) familiar rangers or local hunters in the deep wilderness. That’s where we all are hunting for very different prices, and for very different (and much more honest in relation to the game, and in relation to people) rules.
And as declared by law “On the hunt…” 80% of private land in Russia, all this, of course, complete nonsense. We immediately see that the writers of the law is rather weak and are guided in our hunting and hunters, and hunting. Obscenities they imagine, for example, the Krasnoyarsk Territory, Tyumen Region, Yakutia. Any of these regions almost more than all of Western Europe combined! 80% of them have registered for the regions closest to the major cities — Moscow, St. Petersburg and others. And that all the law! But even in these regions, they are not particularly earth-is given. And the SBI and ROOiRy and OOiRy took over their land, the courts and sent the Vikings won where it should. Did not help either rate per unit area, who tried to slyly plug vary from 1 to 10 rubles per hectare (which is, incidentally, a difference of ten times!), No payment per hectare of forest land, or entering a single gosohotbileta, which vvesti- is really nowhere to be, simply because it is no use to anyone anywhere!
All our guys will be fine, but not at once! Please have some more time to watch a farce.
