Each and every species or subspecies of game animals have their own significance in the ecological system. But from a hunter's point of view, some species have more value than the others. For most, Marco Polo argali ranks high among the most sought-after animals while a more common chamois is desired less. For collectors this priority list can be different as the availability plays a more important role. Rare animals that inhabit the most secluded parts of our world can be on top of the bucket list of these avid hunters who travel around the world to add new species to their valued collection.
Konya mouflon is such an animal that became available only in the mid 2000s when their population in a reserve area reached a huntable population. The first tags were allocated in limited numbers for this fenced area in 2006. As the population grew bigger, the game department increased the number of the tags where it reached to highest number of 8 in 2015. However the annual quota for the Konya mouflon was reduced back to 4 the following year and remained there up to date. Caprinae Safaris obtained two of the permits in 2016 season and carried out the hunts successfully. Both hunters, A. Sackman and E. Negrete collected very good size trophies on the very first day of their hunts.
