Always admired ridgebacks, but thought them "lion dogs" of little practical sporting purpose for small game. Live and learn...
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Anna, very nice pictures. Kind of hard to look at the dogs with you in the picture:)
Is that a "Baikal" you are shooting?

Hello to everybody :)
I understand very good your skeptical attitude – me and hunting :? , it sounds very strange 8) .
I deal with dogs probably all my life. My first hunting dog was Russia-European husky.
When I selected dog for the serious work (hunt) first characteristics should be short hair :lol: . But I would prefer hunting dog - strong, powerful, clever dog, but elegant and quite independent.
Ridgeback justified my hopes completely :) .
At spring-summer period we are hunting with dogs on the different birds. At the autumn-winter season - hunting to hoofed animal: wild boar, elk. Between hunting seasons we take a part in dogs show and results are very successful.
Hunting is usual thing for me, I do something similar during all my live – I mean more “maleâ€

I don't think they were skeptical, just wishing we had lady hunters as easy on the eyes as you on this side of the world. Great pictures!

Thank you for kind response :D
Here in Russia nothing special when women takes a part in hunting not only for birds and for animas as well. But professional hunter always smiling :? when see women with gun. But after we get a prey by ourselves under our dogs they are not laughing already :lol: .
And my dogs love more elk than boar, but anyway work with boar very good.

How do you hunt the elk with your dogs?

Do they track the elk and run them hard to waiting guns? Or, do you track them slowly on lead very quietly so that you (the dog handler) can get a shot? Or, do you use them only for tracking the elk's blood after it has been shot and run some distance?

Hunting for the elk is always different. Mostly we are hunting in group, very rarely along with dog or without. If shooting in group part of people with dogs drive off elk - walk in file (line), make loud noise, - drive to other group of people, which stand very quiet. In this case dog’s do not allow clever and sly animal to leave the circle of people. They are always turn animal back and work with direct contact. If we are small group people who dive off animal do it without dogs and only with loud noise. People with dogs are stand along the edges or wait elk in some place. Some times the place in not very convenient for shot (not free open space) so in this case dog will keep back animal until shot. If only one or two people are hunting we just walking very quiet in forest and looking for elk and than set dogs on the animal. Dogs stop elk and turn for shot.
I usually hunt with small group, so we are walking with people who make noise and “catchâ€
