About the base
The Dedushkin Khutor base is located in the Astrakhan region. To get to it, you need to remember three coordinates: drive 170 km above the city of Astrakhan and 250 km below the hero city of Volgograd, and then set aside 21 km to the city of Kharabali, and now you can see an island measuring 80 × 20 km, abounding in numerous ilmens (lowlands in which water accumulates from the flood of rivers) and eriks - channels through which water from rivers enters the lowlands. It is from them that after the spring flood you can catch a large number of the most diverse fish.
Recreation center "Dedushkin Khutor" in the secondhalf of the summer makes it possible, when fishing from the shore, to please yourself with a ram, pike perch, roach and bream. And you don't have to go far, within 50 meters from the rented house there is an exit to the reservoir.
Opposite the base is the island of Chub, famous for its asps. And how not to be an asp when there are underwater pits nearby, in some places reaching a depth of 30 meters?
The Dedushkin Khutor base in the Kharabalinsky district of Astrakhan has advantages in choosing a good fishing spot. After all, going down the Volga River, you need to go at least 60 km before you meet other anglers.
Famous for fishing at night from the shore. Very often come across very good specimens of pike perch and bream. But most importantly, there is an opportunity to catch a sterlet that has already become exotic. As Bulgakov says about sterlet: “Sturgeon in a saucepan, in pieces, shifted with crayfish tails and fresh caviar.” But one can only dream of cooking this fish. According to the rules, after its capture, the silver fish must be returned to the water world. But you can dream?!

It was then that it was possible to start the legal shooting of marsh-meadow and waterfowl inhabitants. And in November it was already possible to start hunting for steppe, field and fur animals. On the last day of the outgoing year, hunting for the first group of animals was stopped, and a couple of months later, on February 29, the hunting season was officially closed.
From the waterfowl it was possible to shoot at several varieties of ducks: gray duck, mallard, pochard and other species.
From the steppe species of birds, you can shoot at the bean goose, sandpiper,coot, pheasant and woodcock. In October, you can shoot waterfowl up to 20 heads a day, steppe - up to 5. A hare is issued on a voucher (a hare lives like this and does not know that it will die on a voucher!). Wolves and jackals can be shot without restrictions.
Six years ago there was a hunt during which 25 wolves were caught. 8 hunters participated in it, each with a gun. But after the staff of the base got a top, which was soon tamed, the shooting of wolves is not carried out.
To take part in the hunt, you must send a copy of your hunting ticket in advance. The price for waterfowl will be 800 rubles.
