The Hunt

Snow sheep hunt is usually done by walking from the main camp or spike camp depending on the tour conditions. The hunt takes place in a mountainous area (800-2000 meters above the sea level). It is mainly practiced by observing and approaching the feeding spots of snow sheep,using binoculars from the heights. Hunter and a guide usually cover an area not further than 15 km from the main camp, it depends on the hunter's preferences,however.

When an animal is spotted, a guide will advise hunter on the  size of the trophy and  its distance in order to make a successful shot.

Accommodation is  provided in the main camps, temporary tent camps, spike camps  - depending on the game animal location.
