Country

More than 200 sunny days in Mongolia – it’s been called the “Land of Blue Sky”. Landlocked between Russia and China, Mongolia is a country of unlimited hunting possibilities.  It’s an adventure destination where travellers can see the traditions of the past still practised today by hardy nomads dwelling on the country’s vast steppes and deserts. Mongolia is a land of extreme temperatures. Situated at an average altitude of 1500 m above the sea level, separated from the oceans, surrounded by high mountain chains that are blocking the wet winds, Mongolia has an extreme continental climate.

In Western part of Mongolia (Altai) from August till October temperature can vary 0°C to +15°C. In September/October nights are very cold -10°C and more. The same weather conditions are for Hangai Argali hunting area, which is located to the East of Mongolian Altai. Weather conditions in Gobi are more pleasant. Hunter must be ready for cold nights; it’s due to high elevation area.

Hunting conditions

Hunting in Mongolia is subject to very strict regulations. A foreign hunter in Mongolia will need a hunting permission issued by the Mongolian Ministry of Nature and Environment. The requests for the licenses, particularly for Altai Argali, sometimes have to be made 2-3 years in advance.
The hunting is typically done by driving around in 4×4 vehicles. It goes on until desirable trophy of Argali or Ibex is spotted. Last stalk will be in order until hunter is ready for the right position of shooting.
