Argali hunting tips
Marco Polo sheep hunting is conducted one on one. In the morning you get with your guide and driver into your 4×4 vehicle. Horseback hunt is not available in Tajikistan. During the day you will explore the upper edges of the mountains, glassing the hillsides and feeding areas. Normally you can see up to 200-300 hundred rams a day and very often much more. The average size group of sheep is 25-35 males. Once the trophy is located you complete your stalking on foot at elevation up to 14,000 feet / 5,000 m. Physical condition is a factor on the stalking portion of the hunt. A long range shooting, up to 400-500 yards/m is usual for Marco Polo Argali hunting.

How to get there
As we organize this hunt in 2 different hunting areas in Tajikistan, the transportation can be either through Bishkek and Osh in Kyrgyzstan or through Dushanbe and Khorog in Tajikistan. We meet you in Bishkek / Dushanbe and our crew assists you through the customs, then you take 45 minute flight to Osh/ Khorog. 4×4 van gets the hunters from Osh / Khorog to the hunting area in Tajikistan. This route from Osh / Khorog to the hunting country is rather tiresome but you gradually adapt to high altitude during your travel.
