Lynx hunting in Russia (Vologda)
Lynx is one of the most beautiful Russian forest mammals. It is a very shy carnivore, seldom seen by humans. It is a medium-sized cat with relatively long legs, black ear tufts and a short tail with dark tip. Its reddish-gray or yellow-gray fur is usually covered with dark spots.
Light feet, acute hearing and sense of smell allow this predator to become a hard-to-get trophy for the hunter. Lynx hunts are full of challenges but are worth every inch of them.

Lynx hunting tips
The most effective way is to hunt lynx with dogs. Specially trained dogs follow the fresh tracks. Lynx is a poor runner and will soon attempt to climb a tree. The dogs must be well-trained because otherwise the cat will get away easily. Specially trained dogs make the lynx stop and climb the tree and then allow the hunter to come closer without letting the predator to escape.

Weather in Vologda
Hunting becomes possible after the snow covers the ground and allows tracking the Lynx easily. However the snow level should not be too high as it makes it harder for dogs, while the Lynx stays on top of snow cover due to particular paw anatomy. The average temperature is 5-19°F(-15°C -7°C).
