HUNTING

4x4 vehicles are used for transportation around the hunting area. In some areas, horses are available. During the day, the hunting team looks for the desired trophy in the animal feeding and rest areas. The hunt is spot-and-stalk; the stalk is completed on foot. Mountain hunting in Uzbekistan is quite demanding due to the steep terrain. Shooting distance averages 400-500 yards/meters. Altitude is from 8,200 up to 11,500 feet (2,500 up to 3,500 meters).

UZBEKISTAN

Uzbekistan has a lot to offer aside from the hunt itself. Bright colors, intricate patterns, rich simplicity of national dishes, relics of great bygone empires and friendly people – that is what traveling in Uzbekistan is about. Explore the ancient cities with their architectural masterpieces, bustling bazaars, holy sites and historical landmarks around every corner and feel the atmosphere or the Silk Road.

In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen. The excellent people who protest all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife, are ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping the larger and more valuable wild creatures from total extermination. Theodore Roosevelt
