I managed to hunt on the East Caucasian tur in the North Ossetia-Alania while was having a rest in sanatoria of the Jeleznovodsk city. A permission on the “Sanitary shooting” was given. The hunt took place in Daryal gorge on the territory of the Verhniy Lars in the foothill hunting lands. The mountains met us with the drizzle and the fog. However, when we achieved the height of 2000 masl, the sun was shining on the blue sky.

About 16:00 a large herd of males of the East Caucasian tur was found. We started an approach and reached the distance of 326 meters. Shot, and the tur ran for 20 meters and fell down. I was very happy to take the trophy, congratulated each other. Five people took part in the hunt. I have been hunting with my grandson. Started to go down to the cars, when the pictures were done. We went in the darkness at about 23:00 in the evening. In the morning we were in Pyatigorsk. Thanks to everyone for the wonderful hunting and amazing views of the Caucasus Mountains. I invite everyone to have a rest on the resorts of the “Caucasian Mineral Waters”.
