Two separate species of the majestic Ibex are common in Mongolia, the Gobi Ibex (Capra Sibirica Hagenbecki) and the Siberian Ibex (Capra Sibirica Sibirica). Our careful hunt management and exceptional hunting areas have insured extremely high levels of success on both species over many years. We at Jack Atcheson and Sons have been dealing directly with this outfitter and sending hunters there since 1969.
Gobi Ibex are hunted in the desert mountains of south Mongolia. Our outfitter’s camps are scattered along the range. The hunting is done on foot using jeeps for transportation in the hunting area. Big rams use very remote and rocky county. You will spot rams, evaluate their size, and then make the stalk.
The camps are traditional Asian ger or yurts. They are warm, clean and comfortable with separate areas for dining, bathing and sleeping. Every camp has a cook and interpreter, with very good food and quality service. Electricity is supplied by generators.
The tradition of hunting in Mongolia goes back over eight centuries, to the time when Genghis Khan ruled the largest empire on earth. The tradition has changed very little over those hundreds of years. It is a land of nomadic horsemen, an ancient culture, unspoiled wilderness, and above all, friendly people. The tradition of welcoming the traveler has been an essential element of their heritage for as long as Mongolia has existed.
Landlocked between Russia and China, Mongolia is a country of unlimited hunting possibilities. In contrast to the crowded Asian countries, Mongolia is home to only 3 million people, with a density of only 3.6 people per square mile. High mountains, endless steppes, arid deserts, and crystal-clear lakes are all part of the Mongolia you will enjoy. The hunting and fishing experiences are as varied as the species you will encounter. We invite you to discover the land of Genghis Khan, and some of the finest hunting on Earth today.
