Tur (Capra Cylinricorns), a large member of the goat family, can be up
to almost 350 pounds and are typically 250-300 pounds, with horns that
are 30-39 inches long. The Eastern Tur inhabits the Caucasus Mountains
of Azerbaijan and Russia. Our Dagestan Tur hunts are conducted out of
the Ismayilli and Guba areas. Base camp is about 5 hours from the
Capital City of Baku. Base camp is about 6500 feet and spike camps are
up to 12000 feet!
Caucasus Mountains are a classic and rich experience, the mountains are
awe inspiring and the Dagestan people are as proud as they are
hospitable. You will leave Azerbaijan a richer person for having lived
one of the greatest Sheep hunts.
Hunters arrive in Baku International Airport, where we generally spend
the first night in a very nice hotel. We travel 5 hours a day, and then
begin five day hunts on the following day then return to Baku on day 7.
Baku is located on the Caspian Sea and is an old and historic city being
a crossroads city between Europe and both the Middle East and Far East.
It is flavored with the many spices of the worlds cultures.
Dagestan Tur Hunts are an incredible value at $8500* for groups of 2 or
Our hunts include: English speaking hosts from Vienna to Vienna 7
trip, 5 full days of hunting, trophy care which include boiling,

types of hunts are offered are driven and classic spot and
stalk, or a
combination of both.
On the driven hunts there are no time requirements to get to the
ambush points, so a hunter can go at whatever pace is necessary
to the prearranged ambush points. The classic spot and stalk
hunts are conducted out of spike camps on top of the mountains,
these hunts are very physical, but very exciting with hunters
most of the time seeing up to hundreds of Tur in a few days.
Chamois may be hunted as well for a Trophy fee of $2500* or
additional days may be arranged for $350* per day. Some very
large Roe Deer also inhabit the bottoms.
