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. Marco Polo hunting Tajikistan consistently produces the biggest rams in the world year after year! These remarkable creatures, a subspecies of the majestic argali sheep, bear the name of the legendary traveler, Marco Polo. Their habitat graces the mountainous realms of Central Asia. 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 inch mark.
WE WORK WITH A GREAT OUTFITTER
Our Marco Polo hunting Tajikistan outfitter is a North American who works with local guides, assistants, cooks and always has an interpreter in camp.
He works directly with the same local outfit and guides year in and year out and spends two to three months every year on the ground in mid-Asia. Before every hunting season they thoroughly evaluate hunting areas, trophy quality, guides, as well as scout for trophy animals. He is politically well connected on the ground in Tajikistan and will make sure you have all the necessary licenses, tags and permits and CITES Export, where applicable and as required.
Early Season Hunts
The early season in Tajikistan runs from September through October. On these early season hunts you will spike out to give you the best opportunity to get on trophy rams.
Throughout the autumn months of September and October, temperatures in the Pamir Mountains typically fluctuate between the mid-20s and mid-40s Fahrenheit, intermittently accompanied by snowfall and freezing temperatures. In November, temperatures plunge further, with average lows settling in the mid-teens Fahrenheit.
Marco Polo Rut Hunts
The Marco Polo rut in Tajikistan runs Mid-November through December. The latter half of January also presents favorable conditions.
During this time, the arrival of snow urges the sheep to descend, enhancing the prospects of glassing up a trophy ram. Although the rut subsides by then, it is common for previously unseen sheep to emerge during this period.
Marco Polo hunting Tajikistan winds down with the late hunt, which runs 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.
These are extremely exclusive hunts out of a new, modern lodge.
The lodge comfortably sleeps eight guests, but we only plan for two hunters at a time unless otherwise requested. The outfitter owns the lodge and does not share tags or accommodations with other outfitters.
With heated floors, 3 full bathrooms, a fireplace, modern western bedding, a sauna and a full kitchen with a dedicated chef, the lodge offers uncommon comfort for hunters in Tajikistan.
This incredible hunting concession boasts over 500,000 acres of prime Marco Polo and Pamir Ibex hunting grounds, with considerable accessibility by Land Cruiser and on foot.
- Most hunters tend to harvest their sheep on day two through four of a seven-day hunt.
- Shooting distances are typically 300-600 yards at elevations of 13,000-15,500 feet.
- All of our hunters in the last several years have successfully harvested their trophies without any of them having to hunt until the last day.
Marco Polo Hunting Tajikistan can be a Mid-Asian ibex combo depending on availability.
The mid-Asian ibex, has resplendent horns, a graceful presence, and offers a captivating hunting experience.
- They can be added on to your Tajikistan Marco Polo hunt if we plan in advance.
- Should the prospect of hunting ibex as well as sheep pique your interest, please reach out to us.
