The brown bear hunting in Karelia in spring. 

The spring is the best time for brown bear hunting in Karelia. You will have an extremely good chance for bear hunting during this period. Their coats are thick with winter fur, so the trophy quality of a bear the highest in this period. As to success, the better period not to think up. The bear wakes up hungry. Practically, he can find not a lot of meal in the nature in this period. In this territory 30 places for hunting on the bear will be prepared.

Professional guides are making baits near the special stands long before arrival of hunters. They inspect baits and then conduct hunter on those places, which are visited by a bear. Here all depends only on accuracy of the hunter. Average weight of bears of 150-200 kg, but sometimes we come across copies and on 300 kg. All depends on good luck of the hunter.
