Every wondered what it would be like to hunt Mongolia? Our certified outfitter partner offers a great opportunity to hunt Gobi and Hangai Argali. These hunts do not require significant walking. The altitude is about 800-1000 meters for Gobi and 1500-2000 for Hangai. Normally hunters drive to the hunting area and walk for 30 to 60 minutes to a spot where you will sit and glass. Once the desired game is identified, efforts to get closer are made on foot or by car depending on the area. These are great hunts for anyone who may have some physical or health issues.
High Altai is a rather challenging as the altitude can reach up to 5000 meters. Walking can be difficult for some clients and horse riding is involved in this case. Weather in July and August can be very hot – with temperatures reaching near 100 degrees and normal days in the mid to upper 70’s. September is good for Gobi and Hangai with tempera- tures in the upper 60’s and low 70’s. Snow can be expected in early September for Altai and temperatures turn colder towards the end of September and October. Because it is hot in July and early August hunts in all areas can be difficult. It is challenging to hunt during the day in these temperatures, and hunting is done in the early morning or late in the afternoon. Animals move around a lot depending on the pasture and wa- ter available. September is the best time for all hunting, however Gobi is typically successful anytime. Our Altai area is better towards the end of September. Game move to a different area when it is hot and they come down when it is cooler. The last few years experience has shown that later in the season is better for Altai, as the game have been moving down around September 22-23.
