Ibex Hunting in Asia
Bezoar Ibex hunting is an incredible hunt for one of the most sought after big game trophies in Asia. Their beautiful coats and extraordinarily long horns, which can exceed 50 inches & entice hunters from around the world. Bezoar Ibex have the longest horns of any animal in the world relative to their body size.
Like most wild goats, bezoar ibex are mountain dwellers and prefer the steep alpine zone of the mountains. it is highly recommended to be in good to great physical shape while Ibex hunting. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to hunt at 9000 ft elevation as steepness and altitude have little correlation in the Taurus Mountains of Turkey. Often times, hunters encounter them in altitudes as low as 2500 feet.
