Marco Polo Argili, "The Father and Mother of all Wild Sheep!" Hunted in Tajikistan in Sept, ended up with a great old, heavy broomed ram and a good Ibex. Hunted with Asian Mountain Outfitters, and I can not say enough good about the hunt, the guides, and the staff over there, it was all outstanding! Hunting at 16,000 feet is no joke!

Man those ibex gotta be the best looking goat in the world. Congrats! Thanks for sharing.

What is it like using camels as pack animals?

Congratulations 🎈🎊🎉🍾 Gorgeous old rams.

This hunt is solidly on my bucket list. At those elevations I’m certainly going to do some hypoxia training prior to the hunt.

How far were the shots and what rifle did you use?

Those were wild camels from Afghanistan, we were only a 1/2 mile from the border
