Hunting Conditions and Methods:

The hunt is mainly glassing, walking, will rise early in the morning, have breakfast, travel to the hunting area, start glassing and if we see a good ibex then start stalking. There are some areas with enough roads to reach to the key points of the mountains for glassing but there are some areas with no roads and in this case we do more stalking. Typically, in difficult areas there are bigger animals and in easier areas there are smaller animals.

Typical itinerary will be;

Day 1 Arrival in Istanbul and overnight
Day 2 Fly to the hunting areas, approx. 1 hour commercial flight
Day 3,4,5,6,7 Hunt
Day 8 Return to Istanbul
Day 9 Optional sightseeing
Day 10 Departure to US


Depending on the area hunted, accommodation in the hunting areas can be in fly camps, lodges, village houses or hotels (up to 3 star), included are soft drinks and meals during the hunt.

Some clients will need to bring a sleeping bag, if so, you will be notified.
