The Kamchatka snow sheep lives on Kamchatka to the south of 600 northern latitudes. In a hunting venue density of snow rams reaches 3-4 individuals on 10 peculiar grounds. Such density, under favorable conditions, allows the hunter to see in day some males of a snow ram aged from 10 years and is more senior. Often the desirable trophy can be observed directly from mountain camp. And it not "advertizing deception". In this territory we organize hunting since 1996 and rather well it studied.

Habitats of rams represent a complex of remote rocks, the cool stony and strongly cut up slopes and rather flat sites occupied with pastures. In rocks rams disappear from prosecution of enemies, to be grazed come to open slopes.

Males of a snow ram during a season of hunting keep above on slopes, than females with young growth, odinochno or groups on 2 - 3 individuals, is rare to 5 - 6 and more individuals. Possess the excellent sight which is well developed by sense of smell and hearing.

Hunting is carried out at the height of 1 100 - 1 700 m above sea level. The proximity of the ocean and a wind, and also small heights above sea level where snow rams live, exclude a lack of oxygen and a mountain illness. As a result hunters even "aged" feel excellently.

On arrival in mountain camp it is necessary to adjust the weapon, since a trajectory of flight of a bullet in mountains other, than at smaller heights above sea level.

Hunters can count on a trophy of 10 years and is more senior with long than horns of 88 cm - 98 cm. It is the most often found result. Glance in gallery and be convinced of it. There you can see our trophies 14 - and and 16 summer rams.

On a snow ram we hunt in several ways.

Hunting skrady

The hunter's task - to see rams earlier, than rams will notice him. Having noticed the hunter, rams prick up the ears, meet together and long look at him. Even having run, they several times stop and with curiosity consider the hunter. Such behavior of snow rams allows to make a distant aim shot. It is necessary to conceal animals alee on a mountain slope. The best option to appear above animals. If rams noticed hunters and the distance doesn't allow to make an accurate shot. One of hunters distracts attention, proving to be. The second having disappeared from a field of vision of rams, continues to conceal animals, moving ahead on distance of an aim shot.

Hunting on transitions

Such hunting demands preliminary work on studying of daily activity, placement of vacation spots and feeding of animals for the ambush device on transition from vacation spots to places of feeding and back. For hunting it is necessary to leave in the middle of the day to a place of the most probable transition of animals, will comfortably settle and, having waited when rogach come nearer to the shooter to get necessary of them.

Hunting by a setup

Rams are made up on the hunter left on a place of the most probable pass in which animals leave in case of danger. The beater himself not to seek to approach on a shot, and from far away, from distance of 400-500 m proving to be rams guards animals, and then, slowly approaching them, not directly, and as if by the way, directs them aside where the hunter settled down.
