Hume Argali Sheep
The Hume Argali Sheep is one of the more abundant Argali species. Hunted in the country of Kyrgyzstan, until recently it was classified as a Marco Polo in much of its range. This sheep is importable into the United States if hunted south of the Naryn River. Considered one of the easier sheep species, this sheep is hunted via horseback in most of its range, a much easier hunting trip. Our clients have taken some of the largest Hume Argalis, a number from 59 to 60 inches in length, and currently at least half of the top-placing sheep have come from our camps, personally guided and escorted by Ansten Ostbye.
Most Hume operators begin fielding hunters October 15 onward, with the best hunting in January and February. This gives our clients the opportunity to access the larger rams early in the season.
