There are around 12 different hunting areas in South and East Turkey on the Taurus and Mercan mountains. Each year we chose the best area for your hunt after they complete their scouting in each of the areas. The hunting method is typically spot and stalk, beginning each day early and driving to the mountain, for 30-45 minutes from the hotel/lodge. As it gets light enough, they start glassing and try to find the best trophy. If the hunt takes place during the rut, it is very common to see 10-15 male Ibex a day. Spotting scopes are very important in order to judge the trophy size and compare with other males. After locating the desired trophy, the final stalk is carried out on foot. The shooting distance is usually around 200-250 meters (220-275 yards).
Hunts can be scheduled between August 1 and March 31. Different mountain ranges may have different seasons depending on the rut, weather and other conditions. They recommend clients come between late November and March for the best results. *Please contact HFA for exact dates, openings and availability.
Depending on the season, you can combine this hunt with Stag, Sheep, Chamois, Wild Boar hunts in Turkey. As Turkey is very close to many other countries (Tajikistan, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Croatia, Romania, Spain, etc.) You may also combine this hunt with any other hunt in Asia / Europe. If you are interested in hunting for multiple species or hunting in multiple countries during one trip, please check with us for all possible combinations.
