Re: Duck Hunt
With nearly 40 species of ducks Russia offers unique destinations for duck hunters. Arctic Tundra, Lakes Ladoga, Ilmen, Onega and Chudskoye in the North, Volga river, Black sea in the South, and Selenga near the lake Baikal in the East are among the most popular duck hunting grounds. The problem is that some large duck habitats are accessible only by helicopters.
However, recently, Moscow has emerged as one of the best, if not the best duck hunting areas not only in Europe, but perhaps in the world. There you will get yourself an excellent chance to make a feast on rare birds migrated from Texas. Don't forget that it takes skills to hit the bird taking off from an unexpected direction at the outer limit of a shotgun effective range, that is 23m.
Hunters need to be physically fit and should have special equipment: Head shotguns and Adidas or Fila footwear suitable for sandy surfaces.
