Dates: Dec 1st - 8th
Location: Akseki / Uzumdere
Airlines: Turkish Airlines
Rifles/Ammo: HS Precision .300 WSM. 168 gr TTSX (handloads)
Outfitter/agent: Caprinae Safaris
Guides: Sarp, Sukru




Booked this hunt shortly after returning from Tajikistan (and becoming obsessed with Ibex)


Weather was unseasonably warm and the rut wasn't in full swing like I had hoped. Made the hunting pretty tough. Saw Ibex daily, lots of females and at least a few males every day. Usually wayyy up on the skyline or close to it. Passed on a couple pretty good ones early on, holding out for something bigger (and to stretch the hunt out a bit). Got my ibex on the morning of day 6. By that time my legs and knees had had enough.


I guess this area is very good once the rut kicks in. Oh well, one of those things you have no control over. Hunted hard and was still a very fulfilling hunt. Guides were good and fun to hunt with. Stayed in a small hotel in Akseki. A semi-hot shower at the end of each day was real nice. Plus the lentil soup from the restaurant up the street always hit the spot right before crashing.


Here are a few photos and a video I put together (including kill shot).

Thanks. The meat from this one all went to my local guides and their families. I had ibex in another camp and it wasn't great, and I was starving too.

FYI: I live cheap, save my money, and spend it on the good stuff. Its all about priorities. I'd rather hunt sheep and ibex over having a fancy truck, boat, RV, quads, dirt bikes, big house, etc...
