Bezoar ibex, also known as Anatolian Ibex, is the most handsome of the Ibex species with horns as long as 140+ cm. The hide of the male Ibex decorated in a wonderful harmony of black and white during the rutting season.
We have different hunting areas in south and east Turkey on Taurus and Mercan mountains. We will choose the best area for your hunt adapted to your wishes, the kind of trophy you are looking for, and your physical condition.
The altitude is around 1,500 – 2,750 meters at most of the hunting areas. Snow is expected on the ground in January, February and March, but most of the areas do not have snow during November-December hunts.
Bezoar hunt is a typical spot and stalk hunt. We start the day very early and drive to the mountain for around 30-45 minutes from the hotel/lodge. As it gets light enough, we start glassing and try to find the best trophy. It is very common to see 10-15 male ibex a day if the hunt takes place during the rut.
Bezoar hunting season is between August 1 and March 31. Different mountain ranges may have different seasons depending on the rut, weather and other conditions. We recommend to come between late November and March for better results.
For Bezoar Ibex depends of the season and the trophy size you are looking for… we have areas with a huge population of representative trophies up to National Reserves with big trophies. Arrival airport may depend of the area we choose for you: Adana and Antalya are the most common.
