Initially launched in 1930 under the name "Boets-Okhotnik" and later published as "Hunter," was a monthly publication dedicated to the activities of military hunting societies. It was created as a voice for military hunters, whose role included finding additional sources of food supply for the army. The magazine aimed to showcase and inspire qualities such as skill, endurance, observance, and determination in both military service and training.

The magazine content was diverse and practical, catering to the needs and interests of hunters across the USSR. It featured news columns specifically for hunters, provided practical tips and advice from experienced hunters, and included artistic essays and stories related to hunting and outdoor life. The magazine was known for its extensive use of black and white illustrations and photographs, which enriched its articles and provided a visual dimension to its storytelling and informational content. This approach not only informed but also engaged its readership in the broader context of military hunting and its relevance to Soviet society.
