Russia – Woodcocks
August – September
We are presenting a new destination for woodcock hunts, in proximity of the town of Tver, 200km north from Moscow in the general direction of St. Petersburg. The area is covered in typical conifer and birch forests with small humid clearings, the typical setting for nesting woodcocks. In fact, woodcock hunts in this area are organized after nesting and just before they start their migration with the first frosts at the end of September – beginning of October.
The number of woodcock is fairly high and 8 – 10 encounters can easily occur on a daily basis with good dogs. The local population does not hunt woodcocks, except in spring during the mating flights, which is why the hunters need to take their own dogs.
Lodging will be provided in the new hunting house in the forest, offering all commodities. Transport for hunters and dogs from Moscow Sheremetyevo airport to the hunting area is also provided using a Mercedes van.
