Are you a mountain hunter? If so, then the challenging hunt for the biggest ibex of them all - the Bezoar ibex - will certainly be just to your taste! A big ibex buck can carry a trophy that measures from 90cm right up to 135cm.
Turkey is one of the very few countries where it is possible to hunt the Beozar ibex and our partner has some first class concessions around Antalya and in eastern Turkey. The rut, which takes place in November and December, is the favourite period for many hunters, but practical experience over the last few seasons has also taught us that you can also enjoy great hunting in January.
It goes without saying that mountain hunting requires the hunter to be in good physical condition.

The rutting period in November and December are many hunters preferred period, but the period from January to March has also shown very good results. August and September can be a difficult hunting period as the Ibex in these warm months go higher into the mountains.
Our hunters fly to Istanbul and from there they take a domestic flight. Here the hunters will be picked up at the airport by a representative from our business partner and driven to the hunting area.
