What can be better than the mountains? - Only mountains with sheep and goats! We invite you to discover Asia with its large population of wild sheep and goats. Hunting in Asia is a great adventure. World’s largest wild sheep, the Argali, also known as the Marco Polo are among the top trophies and are hunted in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyzstan is also a great habitat for mid-Asian ibex.

Your Tajikistan hunt provides the opportunity for the largest (56’’ +) trophy to be expected. Your Tajikistan hunt is expensive and you also have to be in the top shape for this high altitude hunt.

More economical Argali hunts for trophies in the 46-52’’ range are available in Kyrgyzstan which also gives a chance for world-class Ibex trophies. In Mongolia you can harvest impressive Argali trophies – Altai, Gobi and Hangai. Those are the largest wild sheep in the world.

Altai Argali inhabits Altai Mountains, Gobi lives in the Gobi Desert. Gobi Argali found in the Hangai Mountains is categorized as a separate trophy known as Hangai Argali.

Mongolia is also great for ibex with two species – the Siberian ibex and the smaller Gobi ibex. Those hunts are quite easy and popular since the population is high and the mountains are neither high, nor very steep.

It doesn’t matter where you hunt in Asia. Rise to the challenge and your work will be rewarded by a long-desired trophy.

Ask us about our Asian hunts that are of interest for you and we will be very glad to share the details.

Here is a short feedback about the hunt from one of our friends and clients, Mr.Reznik: “Our regular flight from Moscow landed at the airport of Abakan in the morning. Right from there, we took the helicopter transfer to the hunting area in order to save time and energy and avoid the long ground transfer. Thanks to experience and skills of the helicopter pilot, we lost no time to bad weather conditions. Within an hour our heli successfully landed on the bank of the Sayano-Shushenskoye dam lake. I spotted a large group of ibex while landing already!

Our base camp was located right on the bank. From there, we took only the necessary things with us and headed up to the mountains. Several hours later, we saw the mountain camp – a small winter hut. It was quite suitable for staying overnight: a stove, board beds, and a small spring nearby. The door was wide open to prevent from bear breaking in – better open than broken. The evening scouting within a half hour walk from the camp showed us 2 herds total of about 25 animals, including at least 3 trophy males. We decided to check the other sun lit mountain faces next morning. So, we got up before sunrise and at 8:20 am spotted a herd of males consisting of 14 heads. A couple of them were good trophies. I shot at 340 meters – we heard the distinctive sound of hit, but surprisingly could not see the animal fall. So, the decision was to try and take another Ibex, since the herd didn’t move far. After the shot at 370 meters, the old billy fell down from the cliff. We climbed down a steep side and found two Ibex of 11 and 12 years old. The photoshoot and field preparation together with the climb back up to the path took us over 3 hours. We called the helicopter company and agreed they would pick us up next noon. So, we spend another night at the winter hut and flew back to Abakan – the heli transfer saved us several days in total, actually, - and probably I should say it also saved us tons of energy.”

     

Dear friends!

Let’s make plans for one of the most popular and exciting hunt we offer together. Don't delay to book the best camps and hunting grounds for the trip of the lifetime.

Hunting season starts April 25 and lasts to the end of May. We have 2 hunting periods available for 2018 season – from April 24 to May 5 and from May 1 – to May 13. Which accommodate up to 3 hunters each. Our last year hunters had a 100% success rate bagging trophies of 9 feet and bigger with perfect winter coat.

Book your Bear adventure before Christmas and get a traditional Russian fur hat Ushanka from Stalker. Get dressed like a real Russian hunter to increase your chances for a better trophy.

Experiencing culture and traditions of other nations is always exciting and even challenging. To get closer, to feel the heartbeat one should come and meet common people with their everyday life, their needs, difficulties, habits… Being a hunter, whether you hunt with a rifle or bow, you have a splendid opportunity to experience all of this in any country you go. Let’s say you plan your hunting trip to Russia. Climbing the Russian Caucasus chasing Western tur or Chamois, forging through a dense forest hoping to get an excellent Siberian brown bear, or stalking the gorgeous Kamchatka Moose or kinglike Altai Maral trophy, a hunter becomes a “native”, blends in the area, getting to know Russian hunting traditions and enjoying local food and hospitality traditions. This is an invaluable experience! But what comes next? Now you have to safely bring your trophy back home.

When the trophy is hunted it's a high time to think over its future trophy life. Some hunters prefer sending their trophies to their home countries dry salted, some others order to make shoulder/full size mounts in Russia by local trophy specialists. The advantage of a taxidermist who was born in Russia is knowing all native animals, their natural peculiarities and thus being able to make the trophies look authentically.

“Stalker Trophy” Taxidermy started its story more than 10 years ago. It was founded by a master mostly performing individual taxidermy orders. Gradually he gained a good reputation proved by high quality of his works. Then a small business grew into a taxidermy studio with a full cycle trophy preparation. Now “Stalker Trophy” offers a wide range of taxidermy services starting from dip and pack preparation for further exportation to making full mounts out of animals hunted both in Russia and abroad. Hides tanning, skulls bleaching, rug mounting are the most popular taxidermy works being ordered from “Stalker Trophy” by the hunters who harvest their trophies in Russia.

“Stalker Trophy” also provides trophy handling services. We monitor and take care of the trophies from the moment of harvesting and up to the delivery to a destination country and passing it to the broker. Combining exportation and taxidermy services, “Stalker Trophy” suggests two main options for a hunter:

1. Pack and ship option includes export documents preparation (CITES if needed), custom brokerage service, dip & pack and delivery to the destination airport. 

2. All inclusive option implies pack & ship and taxidermy service. Taxidermists complete a mount (or rug) in accordance with hunters’ instructions and then trophy is being exported and shipped.

The average exportation invoice totals around 1000 Euro when shipping from Russia to Europe and around 1600 USD when shipping to USA. It takes an average of 4-6 months to complete all works. Any hunter who comes to “Stalker Trophy” will find the best solution to suit the expectations. Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
