The Kirov region is one of world-famous Russian regions where hunting and hunting tourism develop intensely.

The factors promoting the development of hunting are as follows:

Proximity to large cities (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhniy Novgorod, and others);
ВAn excellent qualification of hunt-related personnel:
Hunt experts are trained at the biological department of Vyatka State Agricultural Academy
