The Altai Mountains of northwestern Mongolia – close to the borders with Russia and China – contain large populations of Siberian ibex. The Gobi desert of western and central Mongolia is home to good numbers of Gobi ibex. Ibex hunting in these two locations is as good as it gets anywhere. These majestic animals inhabit some awesome and truly wild country, providing a challenge to even the most seasoned of alpine hunters. The quality and quantity of game have kept success rates close to 100% for these hunts, with the Siberian ibex averaging in the 38″ to 42″ range and trophies in the mid-forties being taken on a regular basis. Ibex of the Gobi deserts are slightly smaller, but present every bit as much of a challenge. The quality of outfitting is quite good, with comfortable ger camps and good food. Experienced local guides, interpreters and drivers will accompany you throughout the hunt. The country is steep and rough, and clients should be in good physical condition. You can also spend a couple of days in the Beijing area of China before the hunt begins and enjoy touring sights such as the Great Wall, Ming Tombs, Forbidden City and the Beijing Zoo. This hunt is a true alpine hunting adventure at a fraction of the cost of most North American sheep or goat hunts, as well as being a true international hunting experience. Many Cabela’s employees, as well as lots of our clients have rated this hunt as their favorite international hunting adventure. Give us a call and we’ll be pleased to share our first-hand knowledge with you.
