Hunting for elk in Kazakhstan:
Hunting for elk in Kazakhstan is carried out in the East Kazakhstan forests.
There are several types of hunting for elk: Hunting on salines. In a number of places in the Siberian taiga there are natural salines. Here are deep pits, from which elk lick salt. In place of salines, hunters arrange a small sitting place or build a tower.
Hunting for a roar. Hunting for a roar is based on the fact that in the midst of breeding season elks are very willing to go to the vaba - decoys. Hunters artfully imitate the elk's voice, using specially made manok- decoys for this. Elks willingly respond and often run to the hunter.
Hunting season: Elks hunting is allowed from the first Saturday of September to December 31st.
