Moose hunting with huskies
Elk-the king of the Siberian forest. And to get elk horns as a trophy is the dream of many hunters. There are several ways to hunt this animal – from the approach, the paddock, but perhaps one of the most exciting and truly native Russian species – hunting elk with dogs. This is quite a difficult way, but if you know and follow a few basic rules. It is necessary to carefully approach the selection of dogs for such hunting. It is best to take the most hunting dog-Laika and train it for elk rut. The animal must have several basic qualities. First of all, this is a good flair. The husky should feel the moose in the whole forest, not just in some separate area.
Hunting elk with a husky will be successful only if the dog has another important quality-perseverance or, as hunters say, viscosity. That is, the ability of the dog to continue chasing the moose, even when it is already tired. You should also choose a dog that is not too aggressive – the husky should not rush at the elk and try to bite its legs. Its task is to run alongside and bark at its prey. This is necessary so that the elk simply does not escape from the hunter.
Moose hunting with huskies begins in September during the autumn rut. The best time is early morning. At this time, as a rule, moose go out on the grass, and even extraneous noise can rarely distract them from this activity. When the dog begins to chase, you should choose a convenient position – you need to shoot at the head, so that you do not waste hours in search of a wounded animal.
