[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Life in Volhynia-Russian Poland

Hello All,
  I am working on a family history, and am including a good portion on the history and way of life in W. Prussia and Volhynia. One question that came to mind, and I've never seen discussed (and I understand Volhynia was well forested): Did many of the Germans in Russia have firearms with which to hunt and put extra meat on the table? Were they even allowed to own them? Was there an abundance of deer and other game? How about fishing? My ancestors lived near the Wisla, and later in Volhynia near the Horyn River and I wonder if that was done much.
