Capercailzie is one of the oldest birds on Earth. It is a large forest partridge. This bird has almost disappeared in most of European countries but it is still plentiful in Russia. Capercailzie hunts are traditionally done in spring. It is a very exciting hunt. Capercailzie hunting takes place early in the morning in the twilight. The hunter approaches the animal, singing in the branches. During singing Capercailzies become deaf and this gives the hunter an opportunity to shoot. This hunt is for groups of 3- 4 hunters. After arrival in Moscow transfer to Kirov region is by Trans-Siberian Railway which moves through Russia from West to East.
