ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Two ibex and two gazelles. (See Report 9965) The hunt started at SCI 2014 and my desire to get 30 Capra. Kaan Karakaya of Shikar Safaris and I discussed getting the hybrid ibex in Turkey and then moving on to Pakistan for the Sindh Ibex. Kaan said the best days for the hybrid ibex were the last two weeks of November. Dates were set and we decided not to take my gun (which turned out to be only a small problem). After a night in Istanbul I was off to Adiyaman and was met by Kaan and off to the hotel. The weather started to get crappy so after checking in it was off to the mountain only to find dense fog. After another day of rain it was decided to go for the gazelle. We drove south through Sanliurfa to the gazelle area of Bozova. We spent the next two days finding a gazelle with only one shell being seen south of the Syrian border. Next it was back to Adiyaman and the mountains. The next day we went up 4,000 ft and through a foot of snow to get close to three large ibex. It's the first time I ever felt too close to a mountain animal. They were facing us fifty yards away and I knew as soon as I went over the rock in front of me they would be gone. As I raised up they bolted but one paused before going over the ridge and number 28 was on the ground. After a long walk back it was off to Istanbul the next morning. After a day's wait it was off to Pakistan arriving at 5:30 am. After being picked up and driven to camp I had to get some sleep. They let me sleep till noon and then it was off to the Dureji Mountains. Here we found many Sindh Ibex but getting close was a problem with the cast of 8 guides. We after a few stalks settled in over a large valley with ibex moving in all directions. We settled on a nice male 409 yards away. I had a dead rest but using a borrowed 7mm mag with no muzzle break was tough. I blew his back leg off even after holding above his shoulder. We followed for about a mile bleeding quite hevaily till we put him to bed knowing he would tighten up over night and be in the same place in the morning. We found him the next morning in the same place and he stood and staggered a few yeards and one shot put him down. After this, since I was in Pakistan I got talked into hutning Kenion Gazelle. This is a heavier horned gazelle but shorter in length thanthe Turkish Gazelle. They are currently not importable probably because Pakistan can't get the paperwork done for USFWS. In a two hour hunt I saw sixteen females and two males. After pictures of number 29 and the gazelle it was back to Karachi for some good times with Zulfigar Bhootani of Shikar Safaris Pakistan. The trip home was very satisfying knowing number thirty is waiting in 2015.
