In the Altai region there is generally a good amount of animals and there is a low hunting pressure. It is certainly realistic to be able to put down a strong Altai Maral deer. Most trophies have a trophy weight of 8 - 12 kg.
The Altai region has a temperate mainland climate with relatively short and hot summers and long cold winters in some places with severe frost. Normally the weather is good during the hunting season with sunny days and quiet weather.
The Topolnoye area is located 350 km. from the town of Barnaul.
