The Persian ibex is one of the most prized
trophies of the world today. Their habitat are the countless mountains
of Iran. Although the ibex once roamed the mountains of the Middle East
including the Greek Isles, excessive hunting of this majestic animal has
driven it to extinction elsewhere. Contributing to the quest for the
ibex, its stomach sometimes contains a mineralized gem called (Bezoard)
and was said to hold miraculous properties. Other parts were used for a
variety of medicinal purposes.
Iran Safari has at its disposal hunting rights in some of the best
reserves in Iran, increasing the possibilities for excellent trophies.
The most competent and reliable professional hunters with decades of
experience will insure that your safari is successful.
Persian Ibex safaris can be combined with any species of wild sheep.
Single sheep hunts can be arranged or in combination with other species
of sheep. Trans-Caspian Urial, Armenian sheep, Red sheep, Isfahan
sheep, Kerman sheep and the Larestan mouflon. Contact us for details.
Of fewer than 20 species of wild
sheep roaming the mountains of the world, four distinct species are
indigenous to the mountains of Iran. As all wild sheep share their
habitat with the Persian ibex, combination hunts can be easily arranged.
