Sindh Ibex hunting is the most unique hunt in Pakistan
Pakistan is blessed with a great variety of mountain game animals, some of which are among the rarest animals which do not exist anywhere else in the world. This is the only place Sindh ibex hunting takes place.
Physically, Sindh ibex hunting is relatively easy, especially as far as the mountain game hunting goes. The area that you will be hunting offers unbeatable trophy quality and an extremely healthy number of animals.
Sindh Ibex Hunting Season
Hunting for Sindh Ibex runs from November 1st to March 31st, however the first three months of the year are considered the best due to desirable weather conditions. Early season tends to be much warmer and makes for a less comfortable hunting experience.
Sindh Ibex measuring 95-100 cm (37″- 40″) are quite common in the well protected and managed areas hunted by this outfitter. The magic number for a Sindh Ibex is 40 inches. A billy of this sizes is considered a trophy of a lifetime and a true giant. Anything over 36 inches is thought of as a very respectable trophy.

Make it a combo hunt by adding a Blanford Urial
Another incredible mountain animal that shares this small region of the world with Sindh Ibex is the Blanford Urial. This hunting company outfitted for the current #1 SCI Blanford Urial which measures just over 36” around the curl and a good number of 31”+ trophies that used to be previous world records for this specie.
Blanford Urial may be hunted in combination with Sindh Ibex hunting for an additional trophy fee. It is possible to harvest both trophies within a few days while staying in a very comfortable camp, but the trip duration is often extended by two days to ensure a successful hunt.

Travel to Pakistan
The Southern part of Pakistan is home to the remarkable Sindh Ibex. Sindh Ibex hunting takes place in the hill country around Dureji which is a 4 hour drive from Karachi Airport.
The accommodations are of the nicest anywhere in Asia and the food is quite good as well. The huge hunting area, roughly 100 X 40 kilometers, has been ruled by a family named Bhootani for several hundred years. 35,000 people live in the area and they all serve for the Bhootani family. With this small army at their service, nobody can mess with them or the clients that hunt on their land, whom they consider their personal guests. The inherent security of this hunting area makes it safer than traveling anywhere else in the world.
Trophy treatment and Shipment
The skin of the trophy is carefully treated. Ears, lips, and nose are opened and salted, and the scull are boiled and cleaned. Later, the trophy is carefully packed for shipment. After all papers are prepared (which are necessary for the shipment), the shipment is sent to the address that you provide. Receiving the trophies could take couple of months, and shipment cost is around US$500 -750 depending on the address.
