I got lucky enough to get a license to hunt an ibex this fall.
So know to get this Trophy became not just my personal, but almost a governmental taskJ)
I called my friend and he gladly agrees to join me.
Of course more likely we could find a Champion in a most remote regions, that hard to reach by people.
What the hell ??? OMG, it was a border guard helicopter (we are pretty close to a border with China). Next second all ibexes where gone like a mirageJ)
Frustrating, disappointing? Yes!
But then I decide that it’s going to be even more interesting if our trip won’t end that fast.
So we went up along the river. I found a fresh track of Snow lion and realize how high I climb. To prevent a high altitude sickness I had to get lower.
Next morning while still dark we went to the river hoping to find our lost ibexes fr om yesterday.
That day we saw a small group of animals. But I didn’t see the one I was looking for.
And after spending the day with binoculars we decided to go down to the campsite.
It was still not dark and I remember that have a spinner in my truck.
Surprisingly I got some fish out of this small river! But what was even more surprising it’s that my friend got fish too. He catches it with his bare hands!!))
The hill was “hard”. It was confronted with the dense thorn bushes covered by thousand thrones. Plus it was very steep, around 70 degree of sharp rocks. But I was 100% sure there are animals! So I decided to go.
Then of course a hard hunting realityJ)
I’m smiling to myself and perhaps for the first time feel myself a real hunter.
But it’s so worth it! Isn’t it?
