Marco Polo Hunting Tajikistan
Tajikistan is arguably the best place to hunt Marco Polo sheep.
If you are looking for a 55 inch + Marco Polo sheep, look no further. Tajikistan is the ultimate trophy destination for giant Marco Polo rams. Marco Polo hunting Tajikistan consistently produces the biggest rams in the world year after year! The average ram taken on this hunt will be in the mid-50s with a very real possibility to find a ram that will break that magical 60″ mark.
Marco polo hunting Tajikistan is as well regulated and safe as mountain sheep hunting can be. This outfitter works directly with the same local outfit and guides year in and year out. They will make sure you have all the necessary licenses, tags and permits as required. This North America based outfitter spends 2-3 months every year on the ground in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan evaluating hunting areas, trophy quality, guides, and scouting for trophy rams.
The early Marco polo sheep hunt runs from September through October. *On early season hunts you will spike out to give you the best opportunity to get on trophy rams.
Marco Polo Rut Hunt
The rut hunt runs Mid-November through December 25.
The late hunts run January 1 through March 1. On the late hunts you will usually return to base camp each night as the temperatures get quite cold. Typically you will travel to and from camp by either vehicle or foot.
Why you should consider Marco Polo hunting Tajikistan:
- North American outfitter.
- In addition to booking with a North American outfitter, you will also have an interpreter with you.
- Ibex are also available on a trophy fee basis.
- If you stay for the entire duration of the hunt and do not have an opportunity at a good representative animal, you can come back during the same hunting season for a nominal amount. Request details.
- Trip: AMO1
I would rank this hunt as one of my all time favorite hunts, it is definitely the most rewarding because I earned every inch of this magnificent 32 ¾” trophy. I learned so much of my physical condition and where I need improvement, this has motivated me to get back into the shape I thought I was in. Aoudad are tough!!! It took six shots, most of them good to put my ram down. The hunt of a lifetime.
My trip to Hawaii was great! My guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife in it. During the hunt we encountered mouflon sheep, hogs, wild turkey and also some Vancouver bulls! After the hunt we walked back to the truck and Kalima took the time to drive around and show me the awesome scenery! This was my first hunt in Hawaii and also for Black Hawaiian ram! Was a great experience and I can’t wait to come back!
Sheep and tag numbers are on the increase which is good news all around. If you wish to sheep hunt, let us know now and we will in turn provide you with a reminder and information when the drawing time draws near. This is very special hunt and should be considered by anyone who calls himself a hunter, at least once before you retire the boots and rifle.
I love to hunt elk. Guiding hunts, floats, and fishing are all very special ways for me to earn a living. The difference is that… “I have to Sheep Hunt!” For me, there is no other place that I have found and no other experience that compares. I am sure there are many rams taken each year beside the road, on the trail or next to the river… those have nothing to do with what I am speaking of. In the 80’s and 90’s I guided countless Bighorn and Dall Sheep hunts. We would drop a hunter off at the airstrip (successful or not) sometimes on the proverbial verge of death, only to gather up the next victim and head out again. It never grew tiring, in fact it was just the opposite. “Exhilarating” would be more appropriate. I love every aspect of the sheep hunt. The terrain, camaraderie, the camping, the rocks. I love the rocks. Bighorn Sheep tags became more difficult to acquire through the 90’s and on into the new millennium.
I never in my wildest dreams ever thought I’d be drawn for an Idaho Bighorn Sheep Tag. I’d been putting in for 10 years and was drawn for the 2017 early season tag. I had gone on a successful guided mule deer hunt in November 2016 with the same outfitter, and was so impressed with the operation that I decided to change sheep areas and put my sheep tag in for his area.
