Brave the Mountains
Our hunts in Asia target many of the mountain dwelling animals living in Kyrgyzstan. Located in Central Asia, it is well-known for it’s rugged mountains and beautiful landscapes. Kyrgyzstan has long been a big draw for big game mountain hunters and many a trophy have been taken within its borders. Siberian Ibex and Marco Polo Argali are the big targets, but hunters also have chances to hunt Siberian Roe deer, Wild Boar, and Wolf.
The Kyrgyzstani Ibexes are sizably the biggest Ibexes in the world.
These Siberian Ibexes from Kyrgyzstan belong to the subspecies “Middle Asiatic Ibex”, which dwell in the Tien Shan, Pamir, Altai mountain systems. The Marco Polo Argali (mountain sheep) from Kyrgyzstan, with some exception, are not as massive as the same sheep from Pamir in the South of Tajikistan but are great hunting none-the-less. Argali with horn length up to 130 -140 cm are the norm, but some sheep with horns 152-160 cm are killed each year. The Siberian Ibex and Marco Polo Argali’s population is so strong that we guarantee 90% hunting success in autumn and 100% in winter.
Clients and guides leave the base camp for hunting in the mountains for multiple days at a time, so good physical shape of hunters is crucially important. Horses are also used as transportation, with most hunts ending with great stalks on foot. The guides set camp for the day in the area you will be hunting and after the hunt everyone comes back to the main base camp.
