Our partner in Turkey, Gönye Hunting Activities is one of the very biggest and most important players in the Turkish hunting market. They have their headquarters in the city of Konya in central Turkey, and in 2017 will be celebrating their 20 year jubilee. Over this period they have built up a large, professional organization with good hunting guides, interpreters, drivers etc. We have been working with Gönye since 2008. Generally their hunting guides are very experienced and have a thorough knowledge of the districts they are hunting in. Some of them speak a little English or German, but you should not expect too much of your guide when it comes to language skills.
When it comes to hunting for Anatolian wild boar Gönye can offer hunting over an impressive total of circa 3 million hectares in 15 different regions of Turkey, where they can arrange both individual hunts and driven hunts. They can also offer a further 11 different districts in the Taurus Mountains where you can hunt for the very attractive bezoar ibex. On top of this they can offer hunting for the rare Konya sheep, Anatolian roebuck and red stag, Anatolian gazelle and Anatolian chamois. When hunting in Turkey guiding is more or less always 1:1, with the exception of driven hunts.
Generally it has to be said that when you hunt in Turkey you will be met by great friendliness and hospitality from your Turkish hosts, but it is also important that you are prepared to meet a very different culture and altitude to life than you might be used to.
