SPRING MONTHS CAN OFFER DIFFERENT KIND OF TUR HUNTING

SPRING MONTHS CAN OFFER DIFFERENT KIND OF TUR HUNTING

There may have been exceptions but Tur hunting in general is very tough. Particularly the Dagestan Tur. Any seasoned mountain hunter can confirm this fact without a hesitation. Indeed it can be very difficult since the hunter deals with tough terrain where the mountains are steep and the ravines are deep. One has to climb and go to places Tur call home since oposite will happen rarely for the animal would like to keep a reasonable distance between itself and mankind.

But mother nature usually has its own plans. First snow falls to Caucasus by mid or late October and it piles up over a few months until May. The Tur that normally enjoys ha...

DO 50 INCH HIMALAYAN IBEX  EXIST?

DO 50 INCH HIMALAYAN IBEX EXIST?

It has always been our goal for a long time to collect a 50 inch Himalayan ibex with at least one of our clients. Although we have been hunting northern part of Pakistan nearly two decades now, unfortunately we failed to carry out this mission up to date. In our early years we did not even think of collecting a fifty incher because we always thought such an ibex was non exist. We were aware of the fact that SCI world record Himalayan ibex measured 51 inches but there was a considerable length difference with the ibex that ranked number 2 and three. So we figured that there was something wrong there. Besides none of our PHs had reported seei...

Wild boar fever

Wild boar fever

It can be a little hard for a North American hunter to understand the enticement of wild boar hunting. On the other hand they may relate to the chemistry of the sport if they are avid whitetail deer hunters in their own parts of the world. It is not the similarity of both animals but a special affinity for one particular game animal or the dedication to hunting it almost exclusively.

For most European hunters, stalking wild boar at night is the greatest challenge and a pair of ivory tipped boar tusks is the peerless trophy. It has been our experience over the years that some Europeans do not want to hunt anything else but pigs. We have h...

Another award for Caprinae Safaris

Another award for Caprinae Safaris

Caprinae Safaris has been given two awards by the Cinegetica hunting organization at this past Madrid convention. “Overall best Trophy in Asia” and “Best trophy with Bow” awards were given to Caprinae Safaris for arranging the hunt of our friend/client P. Ampuero’s pending archery world record Dagestan Tur. Pedro had arrowed a monster 41 inch Dagestan Tur in May 2016. These two will make a good addition to our awards collection.

Dureji is the name of the place

Dureji is the name of the place

Blanford urial is only one of the four subspecies of urial that inhabits Pakistan. Out of these four, only the Ladakh is not huntable as it is listed under the CITES Appendix I. Ladakh urial is considered to be highly endangered. Of all the four, Blanford urial seems to have the largest urial population in the country and offers the best trophy quality to trophy hunters. While the SCI world record was only 31 inches until about 10 years ago, today most of our clients collect rams bigger than 30 inches. However this should not be misunderstood. Even today the average trophy length in the Dureji area is around 27-28 inches. But thanks to extens...

The first hunter to ever take a Sind ibex with bow

The first hunter to ever take a Sind ibex with bow

Regardless of the game species chosen as a quarry, bow hunting is a tough sport in any case. One of the biggest challenges a bow hunter can undertake is the mountain game. Both Ovis and Capra species. There has been a number of bow hunters in the past who pursued these species that inhabit the most secluded parts of the world. These people were the pioneers who opened the doors of Asia for bow hunters by hunting many destinations for different species. But only a handful bow hunters likeTom Hoffman, Archie Nesbitt had the privilege to hunt in Pakistan but only for Blanford urial. Although it can be hunted in the same area no others had any lu...

Turkey is the number 1 destination for Bezoar ibex hunting

Turkey is the number 1 destination for Bezoar ibex hunting

Bezoar ibex is indigeneous to a number of countries like Iran, Turkey, Armenia and Turkmenistan. All these four countries are home to a certain Bezoar ibex populations although the later one never  allowed any ibex hunting even back in the late 90s when the country was the main destination for TCU and Afghan urial hunts. Armenia opened its doors to trophy hunters for some time in late 2000s but ibex hunting never caught on due to poor trophy quality. A few hunters tried to hunt this fascinating destination for Bezoar ibex but the average billy that was collected by the hunters was not good enough to make this destination popular with the tro...

Konya mouflon - A rare animal in a secluded part of our world

Konya mouflon - A rare animal in a secluded part of our world

Each and every species or subspecies of game animals have their own significance in the ecological system. But from a hunter's point of view, some species have more value than the others. For most, Marco Polo argali ranks high among the most sought-after animals while a more common chamois is desired less. For collectors this priority list can be different as the availability plays a more important role. Rare animals that inhabit the most secluded parts of our world can be on top of the bucket list of these avid hunters who travel around the world to add new species to their valued collection.
 
Konya mouflon is such an animal that bec...

They don’t make them like they used to

They don’t make them like they used to

We sometimes wonder about the motivation of a man who climbs the mountains after his quarry at the age of 86 when the mountains are steep enough for most of us anyway. Normally an average hunter would sit in his rocking chair against the fire place after the age of 70 and cherish the memories of the good old days. But not everyone. 
 
We are not so sure that there are many hunters out there who decides to hunt Sind ibex in his mid eighties only because the ibex he collected about 30 years ago was not big enough. It takes only a special person to take such a decision and execute it. For the ones who does not know H. Cuellar, we must say he...

How lucky a guy can be

How lucky a guy can be

We always took pride in taking good care of our clients, not only during the hunt but way before the trip even starts. We are not humble when it comes to our PHs and office staff. They do almost everything within reason to make their clients happy. After all this is part of the tradition , good old “Turkish hospitality”. However this hunt with M.White and R.Welch was an exception.  Indeed these two true gentleman had to tend our PH who suffered  a severe kidney stone pain the night they arrived the hunting camp.  Since they had personally gone through the same experience, they knew a few tricks that could ease the pain. They really too...
