Hunting for wood & black grouse

Wood grouse hunting in Belarus starts on March 20 and closes on May 10.

In this term it is permitted to hunt only cocks during mating period (lekking). A curious feature of the wood grouse cock’s mating call is that during a certain part of it the cock loses its hearing. This is used by hunters to stalk a singing cock in the morning twilight. So, at this time individual stalking is possible.

Hunting a wood grouse is also possible by ambushing from a blind, which can be set beforehand in a lekking point.

The best time to hunt is April. However, depending on weather conditions, in spring the terms of active lekking may slightly change.

 

Black grouse hunting in Belarus starts on March 20 and closes on May 10.

In this term it is permitted to hunt only cocks during mating period (lekking).

It is also possible to hunt by individual ambushing from a blind. Unlike its wood grouse counterpart, black grouse cock sees and hears everything perfectly during his call, so a good amount of discipline and cautiousness is required from the hunter.

The best time to hunt is April. However, depending on weather conditions, in spring the terms of active lekking may slightly change.

 

In Belarus it is also permitted to hunt black grouse in the autumn pointing dogs, spaniels and retrievers.

The hunt is permitted from the second Saturday of August to the second Saturday of December. In this term it is permitted to hunt game of any sex and age, with the exception of females leading a flock of young birds. The best time for such hunt is the end of August – middle of September.
