To hunt any specie of Tur is a great challenging experience. The Mid-Caucasian Tur inhabits for sure one of the most difficult and remote terrains of the Caucasus Mountains of Russia. This hunt is recommended for hunters who are in a very good shape. The Mid-Caucasian Tur counts toward both the Ovis and Capra World Slams. ProfiHunt organized 100 and 100 successful hunts for our clients. Gary Paker was one of them who got a #1 SCI trophy in 2000. Please check our reference list here >>
