01 August to 30 November.
Hunting is done on horseback in Altay and on foot in Abakan. Ibex are found in good numbers at 7,000-8,500 feet. During the day you will explore the upper edges of the mountains and examine the hillsides, feeding and resting areas through the field glasses. You will spot males, evaluate their size, and then complete the stalk.
The base camps are tents in Altay and cabins in Abakan. They are warm, clean and comfortable with separate areas for dining, bathing and sleeping. Every camp has a cook and interpreter. You will find a very good food and a quality service. Electricity is supplied by generating sets. The hunting itself is done out of the fly camps (tents).
Russian Altay is a paradise for Altay (Siberian) Ibex and Maral (Wapiti) hunters and the one can successfully combine both animals in one trip.
