At November 2017 I hunted in Karachay-Cherkessia, in the Elbrus district. The hunt took place on the height from 1600 to 1800 masl. We were lucky with weather. It was fine all days while we were there. The density of population there is high and we saw lots of animals while hiking there. On the third hunting day we detected the group of animals and tried to approach. There was no way to come closer and I should fire from 620 meters and hit the aim! It became my own record for a long- distance shooting. The trophy was a big male but with small horns. The used rifle Tikka Т3 кал. 300 WM.
