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. Their experience, professionalism, attention to detail, and organization are second to none. Not onl...
The purpose of my email is not to focus on what did not happen but what did. So, I want to send a personal note of thanks to you and Mehmet for the hospitality you extended during my hunting trip to Turkey. You have a wonderful team in your office too. This is my first time with Caprinae and I must...

I would absolutely recommend themto anyone considering a hunting trip to Asia. While usi...
Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Caprinae Safaris to anyone considering hunting in Europe, Asia or the Middle East. I have hunted with them numerous times and treasure the memories of each hunt.
Given the challenges of combing international travel with hunting, I place my confidence i...

We returned home safely in the wee hours of Monday morning. Now we are in route to Colorado for the Christmas holiday.
What a delightful honeymoon the two of you orchestrated for us! Thank you, thank! Reshid and Alper both did excellent jobs for us in their respective areas. The local guides...
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 a...
This is the first time in my life that I do not know how to start a message I want to send to you.
I really feel my eyes crying of thankfulness for everything you did for me and Alejandra, but more specially for me. I have the sense of feeling that it’s like a dream, but such a happy dream. I ask m...
I have known Riza and Mehmet of Caprinae Safaris from their very beginnings as outfitters. I had the pleasure of hunting Bezoar Ibex with them and took my wife along on the hunt. Still to this day it is one of her favorite trips ever. Riza and Mehmet have the experience to give you a great trip and...
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 Roman...

1. Best location and dates for a quality trophy
2. Well thought-out travel plans, visas, licenses, and people to meet me at the airport
3. Excellent guides and interpreter who can communicate in English
4. Good f...
Riza/Mehmet: Guys let me tell you again how pleased I am with the service and the hunt I experienced with you this past year in Romania and Macedonia for Chamois. I really need to those animal to get over the 20 Capra species threshold and you came through in spades. Facilities were excellent, the h...
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 organization...
I hunted Bezoar Ibex with Alper of Caprinae Safaris in 2012, taking a great ibex on day five after seeing hundreds of ibex over the previous four days. Since then I've sent several clients who have had outstanding experiences that mirrored mine. Their professionalism and knowledge of hunting is seco...
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 dag...
My relationship goes back to nearly 2000 with two of the partners of Caprinae. I have hunted seven weeks with Riza Guzluk in Pakistan. I must say, that i could never have been in a better care than with Riza. We have been in very tricky situation many times together, and i always knew i had Riza beh...
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...
Caprinae Safaris has the reputation as the ultimate hunting operator in Eurasia and the Middle East. My personal experience with Caprinae leads me to believe their reputation is well-deserved. They operate in a part of the world unfamiliar to many western hunters, and their expertise makes the adju...

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 anothe...
All up both Carsten I had a great experience in Pakistan and would not hesitate to return for new adventures. The country, people and hunts have left lasting impressions with us that fosters the urge to go out and have more adventures. Thanks to you and your team for making it possible for us to exp...
I have been on several hunts with caprinae, in different parts of the world, everything always went smoothly, they were always available to answer any questions, most times they would return an e-mail the next day, i was successful on all my hunts, it was a great pleasure to have riza on some of the...
I just wanted to send a quick email in order to express my thanks related to my recent trip & hunt for Tur. The magnitude of this trip is only now beginning to sink in. I chose this hunt for a few reasons as I have stated earlier, one of which was to once again experience a Caprinae Safari. My secon...
I came home yesterday. Thank you for a fantastic hunt. I got a perfect trophy, met a lot of good people and experiend a new country. I have only positive words to say about Caprinae. I will deffently recommend you.
I first met Mehmet Alcon and Riza Gozluk of Caprinae Safari when Ovis / Grand Slam Convention was just getting started and so were they. What I did know then and what was known on the convention floor is their vast experience, knowledge and trust of Asian hunting, long before they formed Caprinae Sa...

Dear Riza, and dear Mehmet, Thank you for all your planning and organizing of my various hunting trips. I’m not very good in lifting people onto pedestals but you guys deserve a special thank you for always living up to your promises. Reliable and honest hunting outfitters are a rather rare breed th...
I can't say enough good things about Riza and Mehmet. I've had the pleasure of hunting with Riza 3 times in the Caucas Mountains of Azerbaijan for the Tur, once in Turkey for the Bezoar Ibex, and in Pakistan for the Sind Ibex and Blanford Urial. The hunts were always perfectly organized in every det...
Dear Riza, My hunts with Caprinae have been excellent. If I were to book another hunt in Asia, Caprinae would be my first choice by far. Sincerely,
Nachdem ich von meiner Jagdreise in die Türkei zurückgekehrt bin, möchte ich noch einmal Caprinae-Safaris für die vorbildliche Organisation ein Lob aussprechen. Ob die Abholung am Flughafen, die Hilfe bei der Waffeneinfuhr, die Unterbringung in der Nähe des Jagdgebietes und später in der wunderschön...
As you've probably heard my hunt was successful. It was a bit mixed because the odds were against us (fog, wind, rain) and then the rut slowed down.
Anyway I had only one chance but I took it and got a super nice stag. Cüneyt is a fantastic guide. Very professional and hard working. He really di...
