Anatolian Chamois are indigenous to Turkey. They area about 28-30 inches high at the shoulder and weigh about 80 pounds, with the female chamois being somewhat smaller. General color is a dark, smoky brown with a broad, black dorsal stripe. Neck and legs are blackish-brown, being darker than in most European races. Underparts are pale, rump is white. Throat, lower jaw, and front of face are white, and there are dark stripes across the eyes to the muzzle. In this subspecies the horns are relatively short and thin.
The Anatolian Chamois lives in the northeast part of Turkey and also some small pockets of mountains in the eastern provinces. However, until recently, hunting for this species was allowed only on the Kackar Mountains which form the northern section of the Anatolian mountain range. With the opening of new areas in the eastern parts, trophy hunts have become more available. They are present in healthy numbers and offer very good sport for those who are interested in alpine hunting. The best time to hunt is during the rut in November, when large males are easier to find. Typical horn length is 8.5 inches.
