Only a few family produced as many international hunters as Sackman family did. We are not talking about hunters who hunt an animal here and there several times a year. At least five members of the family pursue game species most of us never heard of in the most secluded corners of the world. This relentless quest this time took them to 3 different hunting destination, namely Turkey, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Barbara, Alan, Marry Ann and Warren was to hunt 4 Mid Eastern Red deer in Turkey before they move on to Kyrgyzstan to chase ibex. The last lag of their hunt would be the Pamir mountains of Tajikistan where great big Marco Polo roamed freely. Even the planning part of such trip would not be easy but executing it may be the toughest part. When the time came, everything went well with the red stag part as all four hunters harvested old specimens within a few days of the roar. However Tien Shan mountains had other plans for the visitors. A big cold front hit the area on the very first day the group headed out for the camp. Caught unprepared for such hard conditions, the hunters tried for two days without success. Then a new plan was made to go and hunt Marco Polo first while ibex could be hunted on the way back from Tajikistan. The new plan proved to be successful as the Sackmans bagged 4 great rams within two hunting days. The conditions on the Tien Shan mountains had not changed much when they returned to Kyrgyzstan. However Aland and Warren collected their billies after hunting tough for two days. Barbara would get her 51 incher at another time in Kazakhstan two years later.
