Hunting in Russia

Has anyone any experience of hunting in Russia?I heard that there was good bear and wolf hunting in the Altai mountains.Also some wolf packs were that big they were causing alot of trouble by attacking livestock.

I have heard that too

I have heard that there is good hunting in Russia and seen photos on brochures of amazingly huge brown bear too.  But I have also heard of questionably legal outfitters and I would be very leery of offending any russian government official on even a local level, so I don't think hunting in Russia is in my future.  at least not until I learn a lot more about it and see some wonderful reviews from reliable sources.  It sounds just too risky to me.

the kamchatka peninsula is

the kamchatka peninsula is world famous for its brown bear, and there is great hunting for other animals as well. unlike the US, russia has not commercialized hunting so it has more open territory.

there are huge problems finding reputable outfitters there. back in the 80's and 90's, there were tons of "outfitters" who sold bogus licenses to foreigners and took them out to kill bears. they then took the sex organs and gallblader from the bear to sell to the chinease. leaving their clients to fend for themselves going through customs.
