Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:None - except a flat tire, broken spring and a broken fan belt. Extremely rough roads where there were roads.
Highlights of Hunt:Scenery to/from camp and during the hunt. Plentiful game and saw a male snow leopard up close and personal. Camp exceeded expectations. Be ready for a long drive in/out of camp.
Equipment Recommendations:Good binoculars and scope. Be ready for greater than 500 yard shots. Trust your guide. Don't think you can hump the mountains at 16,000 ft on your first couple days no matter what shape you are in. Slow and easy!
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend?yes
Why?The cost of the hunt is the cost and shouldn't be a surprise given the overall logistics required to to hunt the roof-top of the world. Let Bob Kern and his staff take care of everything. They are pros and it is one-stop shopping.
