Hunting Maro Polo – A SHEEP HUNTER’S DREAM! WE OPENED SPORTING HUNTING IN TAJIKISTAN IN
1987 and have dominated hunting here ever since. We have averaged 57-½” over the past 7 years for 81 hunters – a phenomenal statistic. The number of sheep is increasing and the quality of sheep is improving as well. It doesn’t get much better than this. Hunting was closed in Tajikistan for several years but was reinstated in 2010. A comprehensive survey was conducted and nearly 24,000 Marco Polo sheep were observed, which is astounding. Safari Outfitters is hunting marco polo, we know this area and book the most hunts.
The area we hunt is absolutely huge, encompassing about 50% of all Marco Polo hunting areas in the Russian Pamirs. This area has more sheep than anywhere else in Tajikistan.
The accommodations are Asian-deluxe. We guarantee that you will be hunting from the “Spa Camp”, which features a hot spring hot tub, nice dining room, beds with linens and showers. It is a real pleasure to return from a hard day’s hunt and relax in the hot tub.
We utilize 4-wheel drive vehicles for transport during the hunt with the final stalk on foot. There are 6 regular jeeps, 2 snowmobiles and 2 Bigfoot vehicles to be used in case of heavy snow. The vehicles are well maintained; the transport vans comfortable and new. We conduct the majority of our Marco Polo hunts during the prime hunting months of October and November.
Marco Polo Hunting
We offer a 12-day schedule from the U.S. and you’ll have 5-full hunting days – which is plenty since there are so many sheep. However, 10-full hunting days can be utilized as required. From Dushanbe, our Moscow hunting team, considered by many to be the most professional hunting team ever assembled, accompanies you throughout your stay.
