East-West        Safaris


This hunt is conducted in Tian Shan mountains (Kirgizia) at the altitude (10,000 /12,500 ft) the highest concentration of Marco Polo Sheep at the lowest & gentlest terrain in the World. Typical of these high lands is thin air and temperatures ranging from 0 - - 20C (+30 - +15 F) during the hunting season. All wilderness Mtn sheep hunting requires good physical condition but the low altitude & horseback hunting offered on this hunt as well as an excellent population of sheep allow a wide variety of hunters the best possible opportunity. There are guides, cook and helpers in camp. This by far the best hunt for the average hunter 45-70 years of age, not in 100% sheep shape. Late October - November snow brings the Rams to the lower elevations for the rut. Often times it is possible to see 50 /200 sheep per day.  Comfortable accommodations, insulated trailers or traditional yurts & gers as with separate cooking & eating area. All our camps have sauna's as well. Each day you will leave camp 1x1 with your guide either horseback or jeeps. Glassing from vantage points looking for Rams. Once a suitable trophy has been located, you will get as close as possible with your horses & then complete the stalk within shooting range on foot. Be prepared for 300-500 yd shots.  From Bishkek, capital of Kirgizia, we will take you to camp by jeeps (about 8 -10 h.). Slow ascent to mountains allows your body to adapt. Trophy size varies from (50 in.- 60 in.). We took the #1 Ram in all of Kirgizia in 2001, a 67" monster. When you finish Marco Polo sheep hunt we encourage you to take advantage of the best Mid Asian Ibex hunting in the world. You can fly direct to Bishkek via Istanbul with or stop in Moscow.
