60 inch Marco Polo is still hard to get but

60 inch Marco Polo is still hard to get but

The magic number for Pamir Marco Polo has always been 60 inches although not very many pioneers of Asian hunting in the 80s and early 90s could fulfill their dream of such ram. However things changed a bit  in the last decade or so as more and more international hunters started to collect 60 inch rams - even 70 incher. B. Valentine is one of those who is blessed with a huge ram well over that magic mark. 

There is a lot to see and hunt in Pakistan

There is a lot to see and hunt in Pakistan

There are only a few game animals on our planet J. Link has not hunted yet. But the way he hunts, he is bound to run out of species he can hunt pretty soon. This time his target destination was Pakistan again where he had collected 2 trophy Himalayan ibex on his previous trip. Jay and his good hunting buddy C. Willis landed on Pakistan soil in a misty February morning. Small hills of Dureji was no match for these two young hunters so both collected their Blandford urial and Sind ibex in two short days. Jay’s urial particularly was so big that it nearly made the new SCI world record. Content with the result, the group left for the P...

Our hat is off to you Leon Munyan

Our hat is off to you Leon Munyan

When Leon booked this Marco Polo hunt he was in a perfect shape for any mountain hunt under the sun and all he needed was one more mountain species from Asia to be eligible for SCI’s “World Conservation & Hunting Award” Only two months prior to hunt we received an upsetting e-mail from his wife. Leon was hospitalized due to a virus infected to his brain by a mosquito. We had to postpone the hunt while Leon stayed in that terrible condition for months. Next time we saw him months later at the convention in his wheelchair, we lost all our hopes for the hunt although he looked determined. We rescheduled him for this hunt once again not b...

40 inchers don’t grow on trees but they are there to hunt

40 inchers don’t grow on trees but they are there to hunt

As most of you would agree, any Dagestan Tur is a good one. They don't come easy at all especially when you are stubbornly selective of trophy size. But Enrique Fernandez, possibly the biggest international hunter Philippines ever produced in its history, collected this great specimen with a 400 yard running shot on the second day of his hunt. 

Would you rather have a longer hunt?

Would you rather have a longer hunt?

Mychal Murray is probably one of the youngest hunters in Caprinae clientele for big game but not the least experienced. He had done already quite a few mountain hunts all around when he booked a Mid Eastern red deer hunt with us to our surprise. But when the time comes, it turned out that he had very limited time to hunt. So the Caprinae team went out scouting before Mychal arrived on his scheduled time. He was real fast to prepare and go out for a afternoon hunt and put the last stalk on this good looking bull. As much as being happy to have scored with such a magnificent trophy, Mychal looked a bit bitter inside to complete his hunt th...

One more for The Weatherby

One more for The Weatherby

Renee Snider is one of the most recognized characters of the international hunting fraternity. She has been to almost every hunting destination and has hunted almost every species that is available to trophy hunters. This last one was her seventh trip to Pakistan for the last markhor species she had not collected, Astor markhor. Well, she has one now and a good one. We wish you best of luck on your quest for the Weatherby award. We know you will get it soon.

Great finale of the 2013-14 season

Great finale of the 2013-14 season

B. Valentine had a ball in Pakistan with his buddy C. Martin and his nephew Evan. Brian collected a nice Sind ibex along with a good size Blanford urial in the southern part of the country before they travelled up north. Here, he also scored with a nice Himalayan ibex and old Blue sheep ram which was heavily broomed off. It took them about two weeks to harvest four animals while they enjoy travelling and experiencing a totally different culture than theirs.

New generation of Russian hunters

New generation of Russian hunters

Slaba Gorb is in his mid 40s and has hunted a good number of mountain game around the world already. His trip to Pakistan for Blanford urial and Sind ibex was completed in such a short time that he wanted to extend it by adding a Punjap urial to his hunting bag which he did. Being so happy with the whole trip Slaba started making plans for another trip to northern part of the country for other species as soon as he returned home. 

Monsieur Chevalier gets a good one on the first day

Monsieur Chevalier gets a good one on the first day

Daniel Andre Chevalier collected this nice Bezoar on the first hunting day of his trip to Turkey. He had to climb only about 300 yards up and he was within the shooting range. He now probably thinks that Bezoar hunting is the easiest mountain game on earth. Mr. Chevalier and his wife spent the rest of their time in Turkey touring and enjoying themselves with their French speaking tour guide Osman who will be a lifelong friend of the family.

Two Konya Sheep mount in a trophy room

We have known Mr. Seeno for long years. Without any exceptions, he visited our booth at the shows in Reno every single year for nearly a decade. Our conversations mostly revolved around a possible Bezoar hunt at these shows. Just as we were wondering if this hunt would ever materialize, he finally announced that he had managed his time to make it this coming season. Since we knew Mr Seeno’s heavy schedule, this was the best news of the whole show. He explained that he would not be alone on this trip. Albert III was to join him on his quest of Bezoar ibex and Konya sheep. So after years of making plans with Mr. Seeno, we would finally have...

Pakistan keeps offering its benefits to trophy hunters

Pakistan keeps offering its benefits to trophy hunters

Mychal Murray and T. J. Sanchez met in a hunting camp somewhere in Russia and started hunting together since then. Both are fine young hunters with a considerable amount of international hunting experience under their belt. This past February found them in Pakistan hunting ibex, both kind namely Sind ibex and Himalayan ibex. Both hunters were fortunate enough to be rewarded with monstrous size Sind ibex and also with good representative Himalayan ibex specimens

First couple ever to get the Weatherby Award

First couple ever to get the Weatherby Award

Only a few family produced as many international hunters as Sackman family did. We are not talking about hunters who hunt an animal here and there several times a year. At least five members of the family pursue game species most of us never heard of in the most secluded corners of the world. This relentless quest this time took them to 3 different hunting destination, namely Turkey, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Barbara, Alan, Marry Ann and Warren was to hunt 4 Mid Eastern Red deer in Turkey before they move on to Kyrgyzstan to chase ibex. The last lag of their hunt would be the Pamir mountains of Tajikistan where great big Marc...

Inspiration for his bronzes

Some of you may know him by his art, especially by his sculptures. TD Kelsey is renowned artist specialized in bronze sculptures of western subjects and wildlife. He hunted the Taurus mountains of western Turkey and succeeded in harvesting this old Bezoar. We hope that TD will be inspired by this beautiful animal for his future projects.

A classic combo of three species in Pakistan

A classic combo of three species in Pakistan

One of our best selling hunts is a Blanford urial and Sind ibex combo. However most hunters would like to throw in at least one more specie to make the trip worthwhile. In most cases this specie happens to be a Himalayan ibex. Mike Borel’s trip to Pakistan involved such a combination. He scored with a huge Blanford urial along with good representative ibex of Sind and Himalayan kind.
