Maral hunting in the mountains of Kazakhstan

Let me introduce my September 2013 Maral taken in the mountains of Kazakhstan, Dardamty Area.
Distance 250 m.
Instrument Rem 700, XCR II, 300 WM, Nightforce 5,5-22X56, MOAR.
Bullet A-MAX, 178 gr.
The bullet worked very well, the maral could walked 20 m. only after the shot and fall down.
This hunting place is located 300 km. to the east from Almaty city.

Re: Maral hunting in the mountains of Kazakhstan

Very interesting to see your hunting experiences from halfway around the world. Thanks for posting and nice looking animal!

Just for my own curiosity - is it difficult to get a Rem 700 with a Nightforce in Kazakhstan? Do you have to find some way to import or can you buy locally? I'll be the first to admit I know very little about this area but was interested to see your very American type set-up.

Re: Maral hunting in the mountains of Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan is quite developed in terms of hunting equipment. There are a lot of official distributors of branded hunting equipment including rifles and scopes. Yes, it is not a problem to buy a rem700 in kazakhstan and nightforce. It is also possible to import scopes and other shooting gears except guns from the states. So, it is far from the states but it is close to it in terms of love to guns and hunting
