I opened the world of the Mountains hunts in 2017 together with my son. The first trophy which we had chosen was the Caucasus Chamois. I had long dreamed to take this graceful animal. The hunting process was like in the classical book. We climbed, detected the animal and approached. The most important moment was that our trophy had amazing qualities. We brought it down very carefully and made lots of pictures. The biggest surprise was the results of its measure.
After the taxidermy it was measured once again by the official specialist of SCI. I asked Julia Zvereva to help me with it. It got the champion points and updated the record. We discussed everything and send papers for the award of SCI “Trophy of the Year” and Italian Carlo Caldesi Award. The strict jury awarded Carlo Caldesi Award. The Awards was in Neapol in the frames of the 34th SCI Convention of Italy. Lots of outstanding hunters and outfitters from all around the world were invited to that Meeting. The program of the meeting was very interesting and eventful. The organizers included in its some excursions, shooting to the “ running boar”, yachting in the Neapolitan bay and tasty dinners. The descendants of the famous hunter: Lodovico Caldesi, Livia Caldesi, Vincenta Caldesi were also invited.
I has to note that hunting with kids gives much more emotions and different feelings. You feel all difficulties, victories and failures in the different way. You feel like the head of the tribe who has to share your knowledge, skills and teach to take responsibility to the wild nature.
