Hunting for the Siberian Ibex in Sayan 2020

Российский Супер Кубок

Okhotsk Snow Sheep

I hunted in the Okhotsk region of the Khabarovsk krai. The local outfitter Sergey Khromykh provided me the license. I decided to hunt independently but it was a mistake, I regretted later. I didn’t know the territory and it made the process more difficult. We could hardly find the group of sheep and I got one of them. The shooting distance was 530 m. Thank you very much to Sergey. It took me about 5 years to get all 6 kinds of snow sheep species!

Kolyma Snow Sheep

Great hunt!!! Super trophy! I got the sheep from the very short distance.

Tajik ibex

I hunted in Tadjikistan.

Kolyma Snow Sheep

I got the nice trophy of the Kolyma Snow Sheep. The shooting distance was 240m., cart. 338 LM. We didn’t climb high but just hiked around the slope where detected the lonely male. It laid on the sunny side and had rest.

Altai

The long-awaited hunting on Altai was over. I spent 7 days in the mountains. We were lucky with weather. It was sunny almost all days while we were there. I got several trophies including the ibex. The shooting distance was 360 meters.

Hunting for the Siberian Ibex

In early morning we detected the group of ibexes. Several animals in the group had good sizes. It was not easy to get the trophy and took us about 5 hours to approach the goats. The shooting distance was 195 meters. Thank you very much to the High Hunt Pro company for the organization of the hunt and full support.

Koryak Snow Sheep, taken on Chukotka

We’d got the Koryak Snow Sheep on Kamchatka and flied to Chukotka. The weather was fine.  In the first day we moved to the hunt and detected the big group of snow sheep. It consisted of different age animals from the youth to the adult males.  It took us about 3 hours to approach. The group were grazing and dispersed by the slope. I saw the biggest male only when the shot was done.  The shooting distance was 250 meters. In any case I like my trophy and satisfied by the hunt’s organization.  Thank you very much to Sergey Tyutchev and the Eventus company for this trip. 

Beceite Ibex

It was a very comfortable European hunt. All transfer were by car and I even could choose the trophy using the scope. Though snow fell the day before and it was strong wind it didn’t prevent us from getting the trophy. I shot on 80 m from the top and used the rented gun, don’t know the name, with the exotic caliber 257 weatherby mag.

Cantabrian Chamois (RUPICAPRA PYRENAICA PARVA)- Spain

The tourists from other countries couldn’t visit Spain till July 1st. But in few day after the ban was removed. I landed in Madrid with all necessary equipment and the weapon. The officer at the airport told me that I was the first foreign hunter who arrived to the country after the pandemic. Thank you very much to Timo Tippy and all his staff, who could arrange everything starting from the meeting in Madrid to the successful hunt in the Cantabrian mountains. After arrival we drove to the hunting gallery where I tested my gun and then drove to small town in 4 hours’ drive from the capital. There we accommodated in the nice and comfortable hotel. The hunt started next morning. I and two guides drove to the mountains. The density of animal population is quite high there and I could see lots of chamois but all of them were far. We couldn’t approach closer than 800m. Once I wanted to shoot from 500m but the guide advised to come closer. We were creeping to the herd when suddenly the male of chamois appeared just in front of us. The guide said me to fire and I did it. It was the old enough male which got the Bronze level. I was really pleased by that hunt and people there. The used rifle - Blaser R93, cal. – 300 Win Mag, cartridge – Norma TSX.

Altai ibex hunting

Once again I arrived for hunting to Altai. We hunted not far from the Belukha mountain- the highest peak of the Gorny Altai. The group of ibexes had been detected on the height 2800 masl. It consisted of 3 adult males with the definite colour and four young ones. I chose the biggest one and got it from the first shot. But we had to go down to find it and then to rise with the trophy. Later in the same day we changed the location and I took the trophy of maral. Next morning we continued to chase the wounded male because didn’t have enough time in the previous day.  The guides found the bloody track and we followed it. The animal tried to move to the valley. We chased it for about 2 km and got it at last with the help  of a dog, one of the guides had.

Koryak Snow Sheep

At the end of August – beginning of September I hunted for the Koryak snow sheep. The hunt was organized on the Koryak highland. My guide Anatoly Silin detected the male and we began to approach. The climbing from 900 to 1300 masl took us an hour. The group of animals grazed on the opposite slope in 670m from us. I used 338 Lapua Magnum and got the trophy from the first shot. Thank you very much to Konstantin Kallin for the impeccable organization and to Anatoly Silin for his optimism and energy!
