After long-lasting period of time the strictly limited spring hunting on the males of Black Grouse was allowed as experiment in 1998 for Volynian, Rivne, Zhytomyr regions. Opening legal hunting Black Grouse at the places of its high density is logistic step toward sustainable using resources of this species. It could be stimulus for land users of hunting areas to perform annual census of the Black Grouse and enforce the measurements for conservation. From another hand improper control for hunting can be as limited factor to recover the Ukrainian population of this species. Besides, after legalisation of spring hunting some organizing, ecological and other issues are arisen in some Hunting Economies of Ukraine. There is necessity of investigation such issues.
