Horseback ride and backpack hiking is our favorite way to provide hunting for Kuban Tur. Expect extensive horseback riding, considerable walking and hiking. Some knowledge and experience with horses and ridding is a must. During the day you may travel the upper edges of the mountains, glassing the hillsides and feeding areas. A temporary tented camp is set up with the specific goal of hunting a particular animal or area. Rams are generally located in very remote country at 10,000 feet / 3,000 m. Once the trophy is spotted you complete your stalk on foot. Physical condition is an important factor in the stalking part of the hunt.
Shooting distance is 250-350 yards (200 -300 m) on average.
