As a hunter, it is very important to have an outfitter who you can trust. You need to be assured that the planning of your trip is done correctly and to be certain that you are getting the right information and recommendations. I have hunted in the five continents with different hunting organizations and I can say that Riza and Mehmetof Caprinae Safaris are one of the best outfitters in the world. My experiences with them in Asia have been outstanding resulting always in great success. Thank you Riza and Mehmet for the unforgettable hunting experiences, your honesty and superb job.
As a Weatherby, Safari Club International Hunter of the Year and Conklin Award Recipient, I have been on hundreds of hunts with many organizations! I can say, without hesitation, that Caprinae Travel is highly professional, well organized, pays exceptional attention to detail, and honest. Their word is gold!
I first met Riza and Mehmet while hunting bezoar ibex with Shikar. I was so impressed with them that when they formed Caprinae Safaris the following year I scheduled my next hunt in Turkey with them. I've hunted bezoar ibex and mid eastern red deer with them in Turkey and Carpathian chamois in Romania. On two of these occasions Riza was my guide. Not only is he an excellent hunter, but he is an easy going guy and a real joy to be with in the field. Their organization attends to every detail of your hunting adventure. Both of these gentlemen are among my special friends.
Just wanted to let you and Mehmet know how much I enjoyed my hunt with you and your crew in Azerbaijan for the dagestan tur. This was without a doubt the most spectacular mountain scenery of any of the mountain hunts I have been on so far. You somehow made this all work out. Arrival to another country with no rifle is always a challenge- you were able to borrow a very high quality mountain rifle from a local businessman. Unfortunately, you couldn't change the weather which had us "socked in" the entire hunt. But we hunted diligently and got a break one day when we spotted two tur from camp. After a four hour hike, we got up to where we had spotted them and then had to wait for the cloud cover to lift. We got a lucky break and I was able to take the larger of the two. This was just an incredible experience for me. Your entire crew worked so hard to make this one of my most enjoyable hunts. Thank you for helping me in my quest for the Triple Slam. I'm looking forward to our hunt in Pakistan for the Himalayan ibex!
It is hard to find outfitters, specially in Asia, that can properly understand the special needs of a bowhunter. Bowhunters require and extra effort, and guides armed with a lot of patience. We look to enjoy the process as much as the result. This year I travelled with Caprinae to Azerbaijan for dagestan tur. I had an amazing time, the hunt took place as promised on the hunting show, everything went perfect. The guides were phenomenal, passionate hunters willing to give their best to make it happen and the place was properly prepared and scouted. The result was a dream come true by arrowing a monster tur around the 40 inch mark. I just want to thank the whole Caprinae team for such a wonderful experience. Looking forward to keep discovering Asia together.
I have hunted many times with Caprinae in Turkey and Pakistan and consider them the best outfitters in the business. Riza and Mehmet are quality operators who have great knowledge of hunting in Asia.
I have hunted twice in Turkey for Bezoar Ibex and twice in Azerbaijan for Tur with Caprinae and have been successful at harvesting both animals with bow and arrow. I have had the pleasure of sharing camps with both Riza and Mehmet as well as other members of their staff. I have truely enjoyed my adventures with them and appreciate their dedication to making my hunts safe, enjoyable and successful.
Keep Making Great Bowhunting Memories,
