For most of Kyrgyzstan hunting trips horses are used for transportation in the area to increase the success chances. Expect extensive horseback riding 8–10 hours a day and considerable walking. Some riding experience is a must. During the day you will explore the upper edges of the mountains and examine the hillsides and feeding areas through the field glasses. A temporary tented camp is set up with the specific goal of hunting a particular animal or area. Rams are generally located in remote country at 9,000feet. Once the trophy is spotted you complete your stalk on foot. Physical condition is an important factor in the stalking part of the hunt. Long range shooting, up to 500 yards is usual.
Camps are located at 8,500 feet. They are traditional Asian yurts or wooden cabins with cots. They are warm, clean and comfortable with separate areas for dining, bathing and sleeping and have electrical generation. You will find good food and quality service. Please note that spike camps are used intensively.
