Hunting for the Kamchatka Snow Sheep

The weather was merciful to us in that trip. We arrived by chopper in time and the visibility was great. There were two groups of hunters in different camps. In the first day we saw lots of sheep tracks but didn’t spot any animal. Next day we went to another gorge and found four males. Two of them had trophy size. I shot from Blazer 300 WinMag. The shooting distance was 215m. The sheep ran about 100 m, after I hit it, and fell down. It got dark while we fetched the body and skin it that’s why decided to sleep there. It got colder at night and started raining. Fortunately, we took primus with us and could drank hot tea. Next morning, we came back to the camp and I flew away to Milkovo. Thank you very much to my guide Vladimir and the outfitters.

Hunting for the Mid-Caucasian Tur

At the beginning of August, I hunted in my friend’s hunting land in Karachay-Cherkessia. In early morning we climbed to the altitude 3000masl. After we reached the top I detected the group of males, grazed lower than we were. So, we had to go down 300m. The animals moved to the forest part of the mountain for a day rest. We had to wait for them and it took about 2 hours. Then I noticed a big male in 300m. I got that nice, 12 years old trophy by the first shot.

Hunting for the Okhotsk Snow Sheep

I hunted in the upper Kananga river, Omsukchan district in Magadan and got the sheep from the first shot. The shooting distance was 250m. The trophy was 13 years old male.

The Caucasian prize

I’ve booked hunting for a Kuban Tur through the “Safari-Valmir” company. In August 2020 I flew to Mineralnye vody. The driver waited us at the airport and  we drove to Arkhyz. The local guide waited for us there, then we reloaded the luggage and drove to the hunting base. Next morning, we climbed the mountains, went about 100 meters when detected the group of animals. My friend shot first and took the trophy from 209 meters distance. After the shot one of the males didn’t follow the others but ran to the gorge. We set the camp and decided to check that gorge from the opposite slope. It was the right decision because we spotted the male in 650 meters from us.  I crawled as long as I could and approached it 212 meters. I did the only one but accurate shot and got the trophy. It took us just one day to finish the hunt. Thank you very much to our outfitter for that excellent and shot hunting on the Caucasus.

Hunting in Magadan

I’ve just finished my hunt in Magadan. The 9 years old male of the Okhotsk Snow sheep was taken in the first day. The shooting distance was 326m. The second trophy is 10 years old Siberian bear. A special acknowledgment to the Profi Hunt company and the IGAKA company for the well organized hunt.

Siberian Ibex, Alta

I hunted for the Siberian Ibex on Atlay. The weather was fine but we couldn’t find a good size trophy. I had to shoot the 6 years old male because hadn’t time to stay longer. One of the days we hiked about 25km. The shooting distance was 502 m.

Koryak Snow Sheep on Kamchatka

Hurray! The hunting season 2020 is opened now! I've got the offer from Eventus company and Sergey Tyutchev agreed to accompany me at that trip. There were some difficulties because of the current epidemiological situation but I could arrive to Anadyr. My goal was to take two Koryak snow sheep. We were going to hunt in Chukotka and Kamchatka regions and to use the chopper to move from one place to another. Everything was organized well and we didn’t waste time and flew to the hunting area just after receiving our luggage and weapon. It took about two hours to fly from tundra to the mountains. The weather has also changed from the clear one, when we left airport, it turned to overcast. The clouds covered the peaks and ridges. After the short discussion with the pilots we made the decision to land on the highest but safe place. The group worked as a team. We set the camp and went for hunting immediately. We spent two days monitoring the surroundings but didn't find any signs of the trophy males. Then we moved to the next place and detected the group of males there. I could approach them 300 meters and made a shot. I got the trophy! The used caliber 338 LM. Thank you very much to Sergey Victorovich for his professionalism.

Mid-Asian Ibex in Kyrgyzstan

I hunted for the Mid-Asian Ibex in the Tien Shan mountains in October. The altitude, where the hunt took place,  was 4000 masl. I shot under 27 degrees angle from 260 meters. The Ibex population at that area is stable but you’ll need time to find the trophy size male. 

Sayan mountains

Hunting for the Siberian Ibex near the Sayano-Shushenskiy nature reserve border. The altitude was 900 masl. The weather was fine, +7°, no wind. Hunting was organized at the end of October, the rut time. That’s why we could approach the trophy easily. The shooting distance was 240 m, at the 13 degrees angle. The horns size is 100 cm. 

Koryak Snow Sheep, Kamchatka

I’ve just arrived from my hunting for Koryak Snow Sheep. The shot was done from the distance 330 m (300WM). I flied there though Anadyr and then by the chopper to the hunting area. The taken trophy was more than average for that area and I’m satisfied.

Hunting for Yakutia Snow Sheep

The hunt was organized by OK Sonor and High- Hunt company. The scouts spotted the group of sheep beforehand. I was accompanied by 5 guides ( two of them went ahead to check the surroundings and had detected the sheep). The other guides and I went about 5 km and were having rest on the mountain pass. Then we moved to the hunting area and began to approach the sheep. I shot from the distance 540 m across the gorge. The sheep had fallen on the place where it stood.  The rifle -300 WinMag. Blazer, 210 Berger. Thank you for the good organization of the hunt.

Hunting for Chamois in Itatly

My hunting in Dolomites. Mountains there were very interesting. I got amazing impressions from that trip.

Hunting for three sheep in Iran

It was the mid of February when I and my wife Angela arrived to Iran. My goal was to get three sheep. It took us three hours to get the shotguns in the airport of Teheran and then we drove by two cars to the north, to the Northern Kharasan. All transfers in Iran are done by cars. We drove about 14 hours before reached the place. Weather was awful. Next morning started with guns’ testing. The aim was off and the gun shot in 10 sm lower and 2 sm left. It’s allowed to take just thirty cartridges to Iran and you can use for testing only three of them. I used seven and had to approved that usage separately. Weather in the first day was bad, It was raining. We watched several groups of animals with good males in them but the guides advised to look for the bigger one. Next day the weather changed and we moved to the mountains. The first animals, we met, were the group of boars but then we detected the herd of sheep and one more later. I found trophy size male and we began to approach. We ascended three hours and came to 800 meters. There was no further to go and we decided to wait. Four hours passed and the part of the group started to move to the right . The second part, we were interested in,was traveling to the left and we could came closer. But something scared them and all animals started to run away. The distance was 450 meters and increased. I took the position and shot. The distance was 470 meters. The male ran 20 meters and fell. We measured the horns. The left one was 99 sm and the right one -80 sm. I was really glad. Last time, when hunter took the male with such horns, was 30 years ago!We drove to Birzhent,South Khorasan, where I was going to hunt for Afghan sheep. We had the extra day because managed to finish the previous hunt earlier, and Israfil suggested to show us the town. We visited Akbariyeh Garden and the local market. The international Media released the information about the spread of Covid-19 in Iran that day. All museums were closed. Next day we moved to the mountains. First two hours I saw just several groups of females and youngers that’s why we relocated to the new territory in 20 km from that place. It was about 10 am when I detected the group of sheep lead by the big male. We approached it about an hour and came to 180 meters. I used my own gun P93. It has portable handle made by Russian producer Pavel (White Wind). It has 300 WM, bul. 208 Grey Eld. It was the first time when I used those bullets but they didn't dissapointed me. The sheep ran 20 meters and fell. It was the excellent 12 years old male of Afghan Urial. It was my twentieth sheep by the Club list!For the third sheep, Esfahan sheep we drove to the town Melme, in the Esfahan province. We arrived to the settlement and spent there some time sightseeing. Next morning our group moved to the Base near the town. It was a small three floor house with one bedroom on the last floor. It was chilly but we switched on the heater and it became warm. Toilet was outside. The cook Rasul followed us from the very first hunt . I had to mention that he cooked better than in the restaurants. There are three days for each hunt in Iran, than the hunter should change the location. It means that you can’t to start the next hunt earlier even if you have finished the previous one. Next morning we drove to the mountains and spent half of the day looking for the right male. We observed lots of sheep but not suitable ones. At last one of us pointed to the male who was in the group of twenty sheep but we wanted to come close to consider it. The animals were moving from us. I decided to fire. The distance was 410 meters but the problem was that sheep didn’t stay on the place but were traveling. I took the decision and shot. The sheep jumped and disappeared behind the hill. We ran to the place and found lots of blood there. It ran in 25 meters and fell. I was relieved because nobody wanted to chase the wounded one. It was old 12 years old male. It’s left horn was 76 sm and the tip of the right one was broken and was just 72 sm. Surprise.Israfil told me that they have the extra license for the Shiraz Mouflon and we needed just one or two days for hunting, it meant that we had time to try to get it. Thus we drove one again to the base near the town Banavat, Farce Province. In the next morning we divided into several groups and moved to the mountains. One of the guides who rode a bike spotted the group of males and informed us. We ascended to the top opposite to them and began to monitor. The distance was about 800 meters but suddenly they were scared and sheep ran up and to the left. We found one more herd which grazed in 200 meters behind us. The wind changed and the last group smelled us and also started to run away. We had no choice but to go up to the top of the opposite mountain. We detected several groups there but they all moved to different directions. We followed one of them and came to 300 meters. I took the comfortable position and shot. We were going to the place where the sheep were when noticed the lonely sheep, slowly went down. I shot once again and it fell. I took the excellent trophy of 10 years old male. Thank you very much to the Stalker Group company, to Israfil, Amir and their team!
