National Public Association "Belarusian Society of Hunters and Fishermen" invites for hunting!

"Belarusian Society of Hunters and Fishermen" begins its history since 1921. Back in these days there were little more than five hundred hunters in Belarus. As of 1 January 2019 there are 80 thousand members in the National public association "Belarusian Society of Hunters and Fishermen" (BSHF), around half of whom are hunters.

BSHF is the largest lessor of hunting grounds in the Republic of Belarus. There are nearly 11 million hectares of them under BSHF authority, which accounts for 65% overall area of hunting grounds in the country. Presently the association includes 6 regional and 109 district-based organizational structures. The association is headed by the chairman of the BSHF Republican council Yuriy Ivanovitch Shoumskiy.

In the BSHF grounds about 7.5 thousand roes, 3 thousand elks, 600 deer, 80 wood grouses, 400 black grouses, 5.2 thousand beavers and 1 thousand wolves are hunted annually.

BSHF offers various kinds of seasonal hunting of elk, deer, boar, doe, wolf, wood and black grouse, aquatic and swamp birds and many more. High population of game animals, fully equipped hunting stands and recreational resorts create all the necessary conditions for successful hunt. High-quality services, including a set of services for living, feeding, preparing a hunting land for hunting, work of gamekeeper, using transport during hunting and so on, make it possible for you to enjoy your holiday and truly savour your communication with nature.

Belarusian legislation also allows exporting of hunting trophies – the best souvenir to commemorate the trip to Belarus, therefore everyone has a chance to leave with unique trophies.

BSHF provides a full package of services in organizing hunting tours:

  • meeting you at the airport;
  • visa support;
  • legal support to bring your own weapon (or leasing one of ours), dogs and extracting your trophies;
  • housing in a comfortable hotel or a hunting lodge in our grounds;
  • meals: national and European cuisine;

  • preparing the game and trophies.

BSHF grounds are registered in the "TRACES" system, and the association is a member of the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC), International Federation of Freshwater Sport Fishing (FIPSed), International Cynological Federation (FCI).

National public association "Belarusian Society of Hunters and Fishermen" welcomes any collaboration in the area of Belarusian hunting tourism to gather as many fellow hunters as possible in our hunting grounds.
