Chukotka snow sheep inhabit the mountains in the south-west of Anadir, the capital of Chukotka. This is new specie based on the hunting classification promoted by the Safari Club International.
The rigid climate with temperatures reaching down to -30ºC for 3 – 4 month per year, cause a very low population density, so the hunt consists mainly in innumerable climbs with the intent to locate the animals. Once the animals have been located, the hunter tries closing in to shooting distance, a task rendered very hard by completely open terrain.
Lodging is in tents with no commodities and the hunters must bring along their own sleeping bags. The hunting area can be reached only by helicopter or hydroplane, which complicates the hunt further because the weather is often unsuitable for flying.
