This is your chance to hunt for Marco Polo sheep in one of the best hunting areas In Kyrgyzstan, which also has good Mid-Asian ibex hunting. The Marco Polo sheep found in Kyrgyzstan average 45"-48” with an occasional exceptional trophy reaching up to 53”. This outfitter has had a very high success rate for Marco Polo Argali. If you are in good shape, can ride a horse, and can shoot, you can expect to have success on this hunt.

This hunt is done on horseback, traveling several hours a day along with significant walking. The sure-footed mountain horses allow you to access and explore the upper edges of the mountains. Once there you will glass the hillsides and feeding areas looking for a suitable trophy Ibex. Once a trophy is spotted, a temporary tented fly camp is set up with the specific goal of hunting that animal or area. These rams are usually located at about 9,000 feet or higher. You will make your final stalk on foot, so conditioning is important for this hunt. The long-range shooting of up to 500 yards is normal. The average shot will be about 300 meters.

Being familiar with your rifle and having a custom turret that is set for your load's ballistics and the area’s altitude can greatly add to your success.

Kyrgyzstan hunts are typically more enjoyable than Tajikistan hunts as the hunting areas are normally closer, and horses and lower elevations contribute to the hunt's overall enjoyment. Hunters will typically see many animals on these hunts and a spotting scope can be a useful accessory in looking for that special trophy.

The panoramic scenery of being in this remote area is part of the magic that surrounds this hunt. Having your trophy photo taken of you and your Marco Polo sheep with these majestic mountains in the background creates a memory that will never be forgotten!


Normally the weather is quite favorable and predictable in this region during the Ibex hunting season. In October during the daylight hours, the temperature ranges from 45°F to 57°F and at night from 14° - 23°F. In November the temperature ranges from 5°F to 14°F in the daytime and from -4°F to +5°F at night. You should expect chilly and windy early morning and evening conditions.


The hunting base camp is located at 8,500 feet.  This outfitter uses traditional Asian Yurts or wooden cabins with beds.  They are clean, warm, and comfortable with separate areas for dining, bathing, and sleeping. Electrical generators provide power to the camp.

The food will be good in the base camp. Fly camps are used extensively during this hunt and the food will be heated meals that can be prepared quickly. Nutrition will be adequate, but do not expect gourmet dining in the fly camps.
