Mid-Caucasian Tur hunting tips

Hunting starts from the fly camps. Backpack hunts are customary in the most areas with small portion of horseback riding. This is really mountain hunting. The terrain is difficult and steep. We encourage spike camping. A temporary tented camp is set up at 8,000 feet / 2, 700 m. Rams are generally located in very remote country at 9,000 feet / 3,000 m or in lower timbered country at 7,000 feet / 2,300 m. Be in good shape as it is an important factor for stalking during the hunt.
