Hunting in Mongolia

Altay Mountains




OVERVIEW

Mongolia is a unique country that offers a big variety of hunting opportunities and by far, is the primary destination for a premier Argali hunting. Amongst all the big game variety the country accommodates for the hunters, no doubt, Argalis are the most sought after for the sheep hunting society. And as the largest, and the heaviest horn bearer member of the wild sheep family the Ovis amon amon is the primary attraction of any sheep hunter. This crown jewel of trophy rooms, no doubt, is one of the high priority species for any serious trophy hunter. 





HOW TO ARRIVE

Ulaanbaatar can be reached from any major European cities mainly via Moscow or Istanbul as both Aeroflot and Turkish Airlines have direct flights for the Chinggis Khaan International Airport (ULN) which is the only port of entry to the country. For American and Mexican clients Seoul or Beijin may be another good option to consider. Korean Air and Air China fly to ULN regularly.

Upon your arrival to the country you will be met by our company representative at the airport and may be taken to the hotel to rest and overnight. Next day hunting party will take off for a town in west Mongolia named Khovd. The flight takes about 3 hours but hunters should be aware of the 1 hour time difference between U.B and the west part of the country. Once in Khovd, 4-6 hours car ride mainly on dirt roads is required to reach to the camp.




AREAS, ALTITUDE, METHOD

Altai argali inhabits the high Altai mountain region of western and southwestern Mongolia. Here the argali populations are distributed in hilly terrain at the elevations of 2500 - 3500 meters. The pre-scouting done by the guides prior to hunt determines the immediate hunting area. Depending on the area, horses or jeeps can be used during the hunt. Last stalk that brings the hunter within the shooting distance is executed on foot once the ram of desired size is located.




SEASON, WEATHER, ACCOMMODATION

The season runs from July 1st to September 30th , best time being the latest period. The weather conditions in earlier periods are warm and nice. Later on in season the weather tends to turn cooler and rainy.

Traditional style dome-shaped yurts are used to accommodate hunters. Also called yurtta by Russians these tents are made of felt and big enough to lodge a whole Mongolian family.




DAY BY DAY ITINERARY

9 actual hunting days are required for Altai argali hunt. 2 days of travelling – 1 day in and 1 day out – and 1 day in UB makes the whole hunt 12 day programme. On the other hand the hunt can be practically completed in 3-4 days due to pre-scouting efforts of local guides prior to hunt. However it is our company policy to reserve 9 days for the hunt to be on the safe side.
