Maral hunting tips
Bugling for a mature elk is one of the greatest hunting trills. It is not common to hear six or nine Marals calling at the same time. Hunting is based from horse back due to the immense amount of country to be covered to hunt the animals successfully. Expect extensive horseback riding 8 – 10 hours a day and considerable walking. Some knowledge and experience with horses and riding is a must.
A temporary tented camp is set up with the specific goal of hunting a particular animal or area. It usually takes at least one day to reach your spike camp.
