All-mountain hunters we have the bezoar ibex in Turkey on our list. In the last few weeks, we could travel to Turkey, of course with all the Covid measures that are required. Also, our Business Partner from Turkey made a PCR test for himself and to the guides with who we would be in contact within the next few days. And of course, we had our negative PCR test, otherwise, it would not have been possible to travel.
When we arrived in Turkey the weather was not the best one for the next few days. We had rain, fog, and of course wind. The guides had seen a few big bezoar ibexes the days before so we tried to find them. But with the bad weather, the situation was not easy. After a few days, the weather began to be much better and we saw a few of them, but very far away. So we started to stalk the Ibex. However, from the distance, the mountains looked very different from when we began to climb. But, when we were around 500 m away from the ibex and looking for the shooting positions, the Ibex started to move. And as you will know, when they start to move they don’t stop. Therefore in less than 5 minutes, we lost the opportunity. Because big game hunting in Turkey never is too easy.
