Illegal recreational hunting by oligarchs and other elites in Russia has exacerbated inequalities in terms of traditional access to hunting resources and, at the same time, contributed to commodification of nature and poor environmental governance of wildlife management. This paper, based on an article to be published 2015 in the journal Eurasian Geography and Economics, documents cases of impunity among powerful violators,  raises questions about injustices toward rank-and-file hunters, examines flaws in new hunting regulations adopted in 2012, and examines the increasing privatization of lands formerly open for recreational hunting to all citizens.
