Asia & Europe

Sheep hunting enthusiasts have long considered the mountain ranges of Asia to be home to the best Sheep hunting on the planet. With the diversity of landscapes only being surpassed by the diversity of huntable game species, it’s no wonder that Asia is one of our most popular hunting destinations. Hunting in Asia is generally tough and unpredictable setbacks occur frequently, so be sure to check with us considering the current status of hunting in these countries as well as hunts not mentioned here.

The continent of Europe is one of the most compelling travel destinations in the entire world. Where hunting was once the sport of royalty and the privileged, pursuing big game in Europe is at its own level of sophistication. It is here where our hunting heritage is most advanced. Due to Europe’s approach in intense game management and selective breeding, the most impressive trophy quality of animals is available here.

As your premier hunting booking agents, we strive to bring you the very best hunts in Asia and Europe.

Azerbaijan

One of the most prominent features of Azerbaijan is the Caucasus Mountains that extend from the eastern shores of the Black Sea to the southwest shores of the Caspian Sea. This mountain range is commonly known as the southwestern frontier of Europe.

A biological crossroads, species from northern Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East intermingle here with endemics found nowhere else. For many trophy hunters, the country’s name is almost synonymous with the Dagestan Tur that inhabits the Caucasus Mountains.

Known as the “ultimate test” in the hunting world, Tur hunting is for those who are prepared to meet anything that these mountains will throw at them.

The Kyrgyz Republic, or Kyrgyzstan as it’s commonly known, is a central Asian mountain hunters dream located in the western Tian Shan Mountain Range.

Marco Polo Argali, Hume Argali, Tian Shan Argali and very large Mid-Asian Ibex call Kyrgyzstan home. Our outfitter here has been operating in Kyrgyzstan in the late 80’s and has access to some of the best areas in the country for sheep and ibex. The altitude in Kyrgyzstan isn’t quite as high as what you would see in Tajikistan, so horses are used extensively on these hunts. Lodging ranges from spike camps to comfortable cabins.

With rugged snowy mountains that have fluted icy pinnacles piercing the sky and windswept plains stretching for miles, Pakistan is a land of contrasts. It offers some of Asia’s most mind-bending features and a kaleidoscopic view of culture and ethnic structure.

Pakistan has the densest concentration of high mountain peaks on earth. It features 5 out of the 14 summits that soar above 24,000 feet on the face of the earth where three of the mightiest mountain systems meet; The Hindu Kush, the Karakorams and the Himalayas.

This land of geographical splendors is also endowed with the rarest animals in creation, some of which are indigenous specifically to its spectacular mountains. Here live three different species of Markhor, four separate types of Urial as well as two subspecies of Ibex and Blue Sheep.

Being a game rich country, Pakistan was appreciated by a number of trophy hunters long before its separation from British India. Many British soldiers here had the privilege of pursuing these elusive game animals back in colonial times. Now it is your turn to hunt in these lands and have a taste of the excitement these sportsmen experienced previously.

Tajikistan

Hunt Species:

  • Marco Polo Argali
  • Bukharan “Tajik” Markhor
  • Mid-Asian Ibex

Tajik Markhor

We have been offering mountain hunts in Tajikistan since 1992, typically for Marco Polo and Mid-Asian Ibex. In the last two years we have been putting together hunts for the Bukharan or “Tajik” Markhor in community-based management areas. Community- based wildlife management is a recent development in Tajikistan. The aim of this approach is to offer revenues to local people and their families through conservation and sustainable use of wildlife, to refrain them to hunt unsustainably and motivate them durably to protect their wildlife resources.

Since 2008 game management areas that are protected by families or associations of local hunters have been established with the support of a nature conservation and development project. Revenues generated from guided hiking, game-viewing, wildlife photography and hunting are used to support the work of local rangers and nature guides, and any surpluses are invested into local development projects.

We work very closely with the teams who manage these game management areas and are privileged to be one of the few agents who can offer this hunt. These hunts are extremely limited with only six permits being issued in 2016 – 2017. The peer-reviewed science behind the positive effect that these hunts have on the Markhor population has helped secure import permits of this animal for the first time in decades. These hunts are typically sold for the hunting season before convention season starts, so please inquire immediately if interested for pricing and more information.

Price on request. February, 7 hunting days.

Marco Polo Argali

Hunters wanting a big Marco Polo know that Tajikistan is the place to go to make it happen. Years of sound management, high populations with limited quotas and good genetics have created the perfect setting to find Marco Polo Argali. We are able to offer hunts in multiple areas throughout the Murgabregion of Tajikistan for these enormous wild sheep. Prices vary by region and hunting area.

POR. 7 hunting days, November 20 – December 20 or January 10 – February 28. Additional species: Mid-Asian Ibex – $5,500. Rate includes visa invitation, custom handling, hunting organization for 10 days, trophy fee for one Marco Polo Argali, hunting license, gun import permit, area fees, transfers to and from Dushanbe airport, full board accommodation during the hunt, export licenses, VET certificates, interpreter and local guide, rifle permit, assistance from English speaking representative .

NOTE: Marco Polo Argali is in CITES II. U.S. clients are required to submit their own permit application permit to USFWS before May 1.

Mid-Asian Ibex – $7,750 (1 hunter) / $6,750 (2 or more hunters)

NOTE: To avoid any potential problems in Tajikistan, make sure you book with a reputable outfitter or agent. Trophy shipping and import issues have arisen in the past for clients looking for a “deal”.

Turkey

Hunt Species:

  • Anatolian Bezoar Ibex
  • Hybrid Ibex
  • Anatolian Red Stag
  • Anatolian Chamois
  • Urfa Gazelle
  • Anatolian Wild Boar
  • Anatolian Konya Sheep

This is one of our favorite hunting destinations in Asia. The mixture of culture, ease of travel, cuisine and phenomenal hunting makes Turkey a worthy addition to the “bucket list”. The amount of game in these prime areas is out of this world, and the local guides are incredible at putting you within range of an old, mature animal. We recommend bringing a wife or friend along as an observer, as there are many sightseeing destinations before or after the hunt.

Borders of Turkey overlap with the Anatolian Peninsula, previously known as Asia Minor, the land of sun and history. It is a region replete with natural wonders and history across millennia.

Turkey owes its natural and historical opulence to its unique geographical location – a crossroads at which many different civilizations and species met and inter-fused, forming uniqueness out of diversity. The most important natural asset of Turkey is gene pool of the numerous animal and plant species, which came into creation through years of evolution as distinct breeds came to, settled on and intermingled here.

Turkey is a country that protected its natural environment. Many species that have been preserved artificially in other countries are still living in the wild in the full beauty of their natural habitat in many localities of Anatolia.

The land which for thousands of years served sultans, kings and rulers as hunting grounds still has a lot to offer to those who want to collect the bounty. What is more, you do not have to be royalty to hunt in these grounds anymore, yet you certainly will be welcomed as one.

Oct.1 – March 31, 7-day hunt

Area D: Trophy average 40” to 45” – $16,500
Area C: Trophy average 44.1” to 46” – $20,500
