Dalmatian sheep are native to the Dalmation Islands off the Croatian coast. For centuries they were used domestically by peasants, but in the 18th Century, most of the people left the islands to find jobs on the mainland. Since that time these sheep have gone back to the wild and are extremely wary. Currently scientists only recognize the islands of Dugi Otok and Otok Plavnic (this island) as having pure Dalmatian Wild Sheep populations. SCI follows the scientific ruling when accepting entries for this OVIS species. *From SCI Online Record Book.
After researching Mid Asian Ibex hunting in Kyrgyzstan for almost a year, my wife Maria and I set up our hunt through Outdoors International with the outfitter we wanted to use in Kyrgyzstan. Over the next six months, OI was very helpful in assisting to get all of the logistics in order. This can be a part of any International hunt that is challenging and not all that much fun-gun permits, travel itineraries, money transfers, ect.
People don’t know what they are missing out on. Just because Kyrgyzstan end in “stan” doesn’t mean you wont make it back alive. An unbelievable experience of a lifetime!
I couldn’t believe in less than seven days I had harvested a dall sheep and a grizzly bear, it was a trip of a life time! I cant say enough about how impressed I was with this Outfitter. From the knowledge of the outdoors to how my made my time in camp with him very memorable.
I’ve been on a lot of hunts over the past years, and can honestly say this was one of my best trips to date! With animals in every direction, the hardest decision was figuring out which Goat we were going after. That is a true rarity these days. I can’t wait to go back to hunt with this outfit!
