Mid-Caucasian Tur hunting:
Hunting starts from the fly camps. Backpack hunting is customary in the most areas, horses are rarely available. This is a real mountain hunt. Rams are generally located in the very remote country at 9,000 feet or in the lower timbered country at 7,000 feet. Temporary tented camps are set up at 8,000 feet. Be in a good shape as it is an important factor for the stalking part of the hunt.
Simple hunting houses and tented camps. Spike camps are used intensively. You should expect quite modest conditions.
Day and night temperatures have wide amplitude due to high altitude and surrounding glaciers. Afternoon fog is a normal event.
