Spring hunt brought Chukotka at 32% more game

The Department of Agricultural Policy and Environmental Management of the Chukotka Autonomous Region summed up the spring hunting season for waterfowl.

- This year, 809 permits for the production of waterfowl were issued, which is 3,8% more than last year. In total, 2 individuals were shot in Chukotka during the season. This figure turned out to be 886% more than last year, - said Yegor Vereshchagin, head of the department for the protection and use of animal world of the Department.

Vereshchagin explained that this hunting productivity this year is due to the shift in the timing of bird migration and, despite such a significant increase in the number of birds caught, it will not bring any negative consequences for the population of waterfowl species.

The next period of hunting in Chukotka will begin in August. In addition, it is expected that the elk season will be opened for the first time in the fall.
