For many fans of mountain hunting, this is an unforgettable journey. You got the tour, the joy overflows you, but the forces have left you - so much energy was given to get to these peaks. Hunting for a tour requires the hunter to have serious physical training and endurance. For many, this hunting in Azerbaijan is a serious test.
In addition, in the international qualification of trophies, tours are counted as goats in Capra World Slam and as rams in Ovis World Slam. Having obtained one trophy, you can expand your list, like the Baranic Slam, and the Helm of the Mountain Goats. Therefore, up to 250 foreign hunters visit Azerbaijan annually in the hope of obtaining this species.
The average size of the trophy tour in Azerbaijan is 85-90 cm, with a significant amount in the extraction of trophies with a length of horns of 95-100 cm. Truly, Azerbaijan is a paradise for tours. To see groups of stag beetles in 100-120 individuals is not uncommon.
Terms of hunting: from June 1 to October 15
Hunting: Hunting for the Dagestani tour in Azerbaijan is conducted from an approach or a pen, depending on the specific situation. Large stag beasts keep in hard-to-reach places at an altitude of 2,900-3,300 m. The use of horses directly for hunting is limited due to the complex terrain. To avoid numerous debilitating ascents, and with the aim of maximum proximity to animal habitats, "flying" tent camps are used at an altitude of 2500-2700 m. They have to spend several days.
