Hunting conditions

Hunter has to be in good physical condition and be able to move in mountains – forest areas and rocky areas. Horse-riding skills make your hunt much easier. But hunter must be ready to stalk on foot as well! In some areas, it is possible to combine Maral and Ibex hunts with Siberian Roe Deer hunt.
