Our Norwegian partner Ansten Østbye can be said to be almost a legend in terms of hunting in Russia and Asia.
Before the fall of the Wall any hunting in the former Soviet Union was entirely state-controlled, but with the growing liberalization of the hunting, there came the other players on the field, and Ansten Østbye was one of the first foreigners who could offer hunting in the big exciting country. So since 1991 Ansten has sent hundreds of hunters on challenging adventures, and on most of the hunts with himself as the group leader. It has for many people given a great sense of security that at these remote destinations to have a Scandinavian hunting organizer. We have had the pleasure to work with Ansten since 2006.
Ansten is obviously working closely with good local forces, and has since made sure that his guests are sent to the very best areas for the different species.
