Hunting trips

in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a mountainous country in Central Asia, with probably the most beautiful landscapes. It is a stronghold of mountain hunters, as it produces large trophies of Mid-Asian Ibex annually. Hunters also flock here to hunt for several Argali species: the Marco Polo, Hume and Tyan Shan Argali.

HUNTING

Classic mountain spot-and-stalk hunt. Hunting in Kyrgyzstan requires a lot of horse riding. The hunt starts in the morning and you spend the day looking for the trophy males at the hillsides and feeding areas. The average elevation is 11,500 feet (3,500 meters). The stalk is completed on foot once the desired trophy is located. You have to be fit for this part of the hunt. Spike camps are used to stay within the hunting area. Shooting range is 200-500 yards.

KYRGYZTAN

Kyrgyzstan is mostly famous for its beautiful nature; the endless peaks of the Pamir Mountains and the never freezing Issyk-Kul lake are its best known landmarks. It was the first country in Central Asia that launched the no-visa entry; and citizens of most countries do not need to obtain a visa in advance.

“The wild ram embodies the mystery and magic of the mountains, the rocky canyons, the snowy peaks, the fragrant alpine meadows, the gray slide rock, the icy, dancing rills fed by snowbank and glacier, the sweet, clean air of the high places, and the sense of being alone on the top of the world with the eagles, the marmots, and the wild sheep themselves.” Jack O’Connor
