Tajikistan is a relatively small, mountainous, Central Asian state, squeezed onto the map between Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. More than 50% of the country lies 3000m above sea level. This former Soviet Republic is home to the worlds biggest population of the much sought after Marco Polo argali, and it can also boast of fine populations of Mid-Asian ibex, brown bear and wild boar. In some parts of the country you can be lucky enough to see rare, totally protected species such as snow leopard and markhor. In Tajikistan we work in partnership with the Norwegian outfitter Ansten Østbye - one of the most experienced hunt organisers in this remote hunting destination.

This hunt is therefore not challenging because of steep terrain, but because you will be hunting at high altitude. Hunting takes place from the mountain...Read more
