Considered one of the most beautiful species of wild sheep in the world, Blandford urial hunting is popular with hunters after their Ovis Slam. Blandford urial hunting in Pakistan is November through March. However, January, February, and March are considered to be the best months due to desirable weather conditions. Early season tends to be much warmer and makes for a less comfortable hunting experience.
Trophy quality is extremely good in Pakistan.
Rams with horns measuring 65-75 cm (26″- 30″) are common in the well protected and managed hunting areas. A few years ago, a 34 inch urial was taken in Pakistan that turned out to be #1 SCI World Record. The following year they took two 35″ and one 36″ rams, breaking the world record three times in one season!
Add a Sindh Ibex to make it a combo hunt.
Another unique animal that inhabits the same territory of Pakistan as the Blandford urial is the Sindh ibex. It is not uncommon to take a trophy animal of both species within a three day hunt.
Why you should consider Blandford urial hunting in Pakistan:
- Physically, this is a relatively easy hunt. Probably one of the easiest mountain game hunts available anywhere.
- Trophy quality is incredible!
- Combo with a Sindh ibex.
