ROUTE

For Mediterranean Coast, south of Turkey, hunters need to fly to Antalya as last destination while they need to fly to Ankara for Black Sea Region of Turkey and Central Anatolia.
As there are direct and daily flights of Turkish Airlines to Istanbul, Ankara and Antalya from major European cities, travelling is very easy and short. After going through the necessary custom formalities, we take hunters to the hunting area. From closest airport, areas take 1 to 4 hours’ drive depending on the location. The Recommended trip duration is 7-day itinerary with five hunting days.

HUNTING

Bezoar Ibex hunt is a classic mountain spot-and-stalk hunt. Fly tent camps are rarely used. The hunt takes place at around 6,500-8,200 feet (2000-2500 meters) above sea level. The average shooting distance is 250-350 meters/yards.

Some areas have very suitable structure for wild boar stalking, that are promising an exceptional hunting. Although the average trophy is around 7-8,5 inches (18-22 cm), it is not uncommon to get very big tusks like 9,8 inches (25 cm) and bigger.
The other method of wild boar hunting is driven. As all areas are free range, hunting success and daily bags is essentially dependant on the shooting skills of the hunter especially, during the driven hunt.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it true that all trophy hunting licenses are sold at the auctions? Can foreign hunters participate in the auction?
    arrow

    The Turkish Ministry of Nature transforms the process of license acquisition into the auctions. Basically, now all licenses for most trophy animals in Turkey, including Chamois, Ibex, Konya sheep and Hybrid Ibex, are sold at the auction. The Wild boar is an exception. Only the accredited Turkish outfitters can take part in the auctions. After that they sell the licenses to everyone interested, including foreign hunters.

  • Is it possible to collect all Turkish mountain trophies in one trip?
    arrow

    It is a very difficult task. The mountain trophies of Turkey include Bezoar Ibex, Anatolian Chamois, Konya Sheep, Hybrid Ibex and Red stag. All of them inhabit different parts of the country and the nest hunting periods differ. We recommend splitting in several combo trips.

  • What is the most popular combo hunt in Turkey?
    arrow

    The most popular trophy is Bezoar Ibex. This hunt can be combined with hunting for Chamois in the same period: November-December. However, you will have to change the hunting area. There is another option: you can combine hunting for Bezoar Ibex and Konya Sheep; these animals inhabit neighboring hunting areas.

  • Which airport would be the most convenient to arrive at for Anatolian Chamois hunting?
    arrow

    It will depend on the hunting region, for which the license is issued. You will need to arrive in Trabzon or Erzinсan. We will confirm the route prior to your trip.

  • Is the Wild boar hunt in Turkey always conducted in full moon only?
    arrow

    The full moon is a recommended period, but not obligatory. It is recommended to come in full moon to get a guaranteed result and an interesting hunt. During the full moon you can also hunt by spot and stalk, rather than spend hours sitting motionlessly on a high seat. The Wild boar comes out to the open spots to feed under the moonlight, and you can stalk a large male.
