Hunting is done on horseback in Altay and on foot in Krasnoyarks region. Maral 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 Altai and cabins in Krasnoyarsk region. 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 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 and Krasnoyarks region are a paradise not only for Maral (Wapiti) hunters but you can also enjoy a great Altay (Siberian) Ibex, Siberian Roe deer and Siberian Bear hunting trying to combine them in one trip.
