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 extensive pre-scouting prince Zulfiqar’s hunting staff does prior to hunts, majority of the rams we collected in the past 7-8 years have been over the 30” mark.
This amazing ram was collected by our client J. Baker this past December. It is slightly smaller than the current world record Blanford urial (36”) which was taken by our client A.Kozyrski. We believe this area will keep producing new world records for years to come.
