Hunting in Iran
Iran is a vast country of 1.6 million sq. kilometers. The geological past and current geographic location has resulted in the appearance of open landscapes with vast mountain ranges, lush forest, arid desert and tropical seaside. Mountains are habitat to seven distinct and internationally recognized species of wild sheep, the Persian Ibex and Bezoar Ibex. The valleys below them are home to the Goitered and Jabber gazelles, preyed upon by the fastest land animal- the Asiatic cheetah. Forests are home to the red deer, roe deer, Persian fallow deer, brown bear and some of the largest wild boar in the world.

Hunting tips in Iran
Hunting is done by spot and stalk while observing animals feeding and rest areas. The most preferable hunting time in Iran is in the morning or in the evening, but hunters leave to the hunting area for the whole day. Jeeps are used for the transportation in the area. No horses involved.
Elevation of the hunt doesn’t exceed 3500 meters (11.500 ft). Average shooting distance is 300 – 400 meters (330 – 440 yards). You should be ready for the strong wind and big angle when shooting.
Hunting Base Camps
Wooden cabins and guest houses are regular camps for Iran (spike, tent camps are very limited). They are warm, clean and comfortable with separate areas for dining, bathing and sleeping. Every camp has a cook and interpreter. You will find tasty food and qualitative service.
How to get there
You have many opportunities to get to Tehran on different airlines. You will be met and assisted through the customs at the airport by our representatives who will take you to hotel for overnight or directly to final destination.
