Kazakhstan
While Mongolia has a reputation be the country to
hunt Siberian roe bucks over the past forty years,
Kazakhstan has established it self as the country for
the best ibex hunts in the world over the past ten
years. Ibex trophies with horns measuring 140cm and
beyond, believe it or not, have covered international
hunter’s magazines to the thousands. Furthermore,
no country in the world offers ibex hunts as cheap as
Kazakhstan does. Wile there are only limited licences
for the alpine, the Nubian and the the Sind ibex, which
are all rather expensive, hunters have the chance to
harvest an impressive ibex trophy in Kazakhstan for
a very good price. This is exactly why these hunts
in Kazakhstan are very high in demand and enjoy a
great reputation amongst international hunters.Let
us organise you a hunting trip of a livetime. We, from
WESTFALIA discovered the immense potential of
Kazakhstan becoming a hotspot for high quality ibex
hunts at a very early stage. We have invested into the
infrastructure and travel to Kazakhstan on an annual
basis in order to test new hunting areas and check the
quality of service of our partner. Our commitment to
organise high quality ibex hunts in Kazakhstan has
over the years made us the key player for ibex hunts
in Kazakhstan.
About our partner in Kazakhstan:
One of the most important – if not the most
important – aspects of a good partner is his reliability
and experience. When it comes to these two aspects
we have been very fortunate with our partner in
Kazakhstan with whom we work since app. the early
nineties. Since then we work with the company called
Alakol-Tours formally known as ASIA-SAFARIS.
Thanks to Sergej Stepanschenk – who unfortunately
passed away – Kazakhstan managed to become the
Kazakhstan – with 2.717.300 square kilometres the 9th largest country in world. Kazakhstan –
endless pastures and mountains of stunning beauty. Kazakhstan – home to ibex, Argali, Maral,
Siberian roe deer, strong wild boar and snow leopard.
Kazakhstan – a country with friendly and welcoming people and an exiting culture. Kazakhstan
– a paradise for hunters.
best country to hunt for wild sheep, Maral and ibex.

The Siberian ibex:
The true king of the altai mountains. His compact
body with strong legs and the soft hoofs allows
the Siberian ibex to be adapted to the mountains
perfectly. It is absolutely unbelievable how this
elegant animal can climb and one would not believe
the amazing climbing skills of a heard including
fawns. Male ibex weight up to app. 130 kg, females
are app. 30% lighter. Both male and female have
horns; although the females only have short and
hardly bend horns. The ibex hide changes from dark
brown in summer to greyish in winter. Nevertheless,
there are major differences in hide colour amongst
different areas in Kazakhstan.The horns of the ibex
are truly impressive. With 7 to 8 years the Siberian
ibex is fully grown and can be hunted from that age
onwards. A good ibex measures 110 cm onwards.
Everything beyond 125 cm is usually considered to be
a very good ibex trophy. However, Kazakhstan is not
the best country to hunt ibex for no reason. Looking
at various hunting protocols of our clients during
the past couple of years, ibex trophies measured
130 cm, 132 cm, 135 cm, 136, 139 cm and even 143
cm. We know that these measurements are hard to
believe, but they are all recorded and we can prove
them. However, it is not only the length of horns
that matters, but also the circumference at the base.
The variety of curls on the magnificent ibex horns
is significant and only after measuring many horns
of different ibex shot by our clients one recognises
the differences in shapes. Narrow and wide horns,
dominant and less dominant curl formations, light
colour and almost black horns, broken ends due to
territorial fights or worn horns are amongst some
of the shapes that highlight the great variety in ibex
trophies. It is simply one of those hunts that we
recommend every hunter to at least experience once
in a life time – you will be overwhelmed by the beauty
of the mountains, the friendliness of the people and
last but not least the quality of the trophies.
Additional species:
the area where you will hunt for ibex also provides
you with the opportunity to hunt and observe a
variety of additional species. Let’s start with the
smallest ones. If you have enough time to observe you
will be able to see ground squirrels and groundhogs.
Just below the areas where you will hunt for ibex and
maral, you will have the opportunity, depending on
the hunting season, to hunt for Siberian roe deer.
Although the trophy quality of the Siberian roe
deer in this area can not compete with the quality
of trophies found in the lower parts in this beautiful
country, it is not exaggerated if we say that you can
get a trophy of between 800 – 1.000 gram. Either way,
such a trophy is a great addition for your collection
and the opportunity to harvest it as an additional
trophy during your hunt for ibex should be taken.
At the same time and in most cases even in the same
hunting area you can also hunt for Maral. This red
deer species can weight up to app. 350 kg. Other
then the European red stags, the antlers of the Maral
do not form so called “crowns”. Nevertheless, Maral
antlers can weigh up to 18 -20 kg. Taking into account
that the Maral hardly ever grows more then six tips
on each side one can imagine these mighty antlers.
Believe it or not, but these mountains are also home
to some of the strongest and biggest wild boar – don’t
even start comparing them with the ones you can
find in Turkey or Iran because you will not be able to
find anything as such in these countries. Amazingly
strong wild boars roam in these mountains and some
tusks have measured 30 mm in width. The actual
bodyweight of these wild boards can only be guessed
as transporting it into the valley is nearly impossible.
We have ex-perienced it our selves and some of our
clients have also reported app. weights of more then
250 kg. With a bit of luck and a fast trigger you will
also be able to shot a wolf and/ or a lynx. With even
more luck you will be able to spot the shy snow
leopard and Argalies. Brown bear also roam in these
mountains and can be shot as additional species.
For those interested in ornithology, you can be rest
assured that you will see plenty of the majestic eagles
and vultures. In summary, a flora and fauna that will
impress every naturalizing hunter.
Where is the best hunting area?
This is one of the questions that our clients ask us
on a daily basis. Without having to think twice, our
answer is: the Altai Mountains (this name originates
from the Kazakh language and means colourful
mountains). This mountain region in the east of
Kazakhstan has been rated by Kazakh scientists as
the area with the highest ibex population density
in the country. For this hunt in Kazakhstan one
does not need to be an extreme athlete- although
the mountains are up the 3.500 metres high – as
the well trained horses will be of great help to get
to some of the most secret places. Nevertheless, you
should be well prepared for such a hunting trip and
have a certain amount of physical fitness. The Altai
Mountains are app. 400 km long and app. 80 km
wide and is inhabited by only very small populations
of nomadic people and farmers. Imagine the Altai
Mountains as a high plateau. Now imagine your
self standing on top of this plateau; underneath you
nothing but mountain pasture, endless valleys with
hardly and forest and an unforgettable view towards
the 5.000 and 6.000 metres high snow-covered
mountain ranges of China. Believe us if we say that
you will never forget this moment in your entire live.
As previously outlined, it is the best hunting area
in Kazakhstan for which we have exclusive rights.
For obvious reasons the hunts in these areas are not
particular cheap. Not only our partner but also we
have invested into camps, vehicles and staff. The
team on the spot is of particular importance to us
as the quality of your hunt depends on their quality
of work. We have translators, drivers, cooks and last
but not least professional hunters and guides to make
sure that your hunt will be a success. Although you
and your guides are most likely to speak different
languages, we can as-sure you that you will learn a lot
about how to hunt ibex. It is therefore important for
us that you don’t only compare prices when thinking
to book such a hunt, but more so to look behind the
scene and compare the quality and reputation of
different offers. We for our part can guarantee you
a perfectly organised hunt in Kazakhstan and we
have not for no reason been leading the marked over
the last couple of years for these hunting trips. We
travel to the hunting areas and camps on a regular
basis and accompany a great variety of hunters on
an annual basis. Therefore, we can rest assure you
that we have made plenty of experience with these
hunts and are happy to pass this experience on you.
This is what makes us different from some other
hunting agencies who gather their knowledge from
the internet solely.
Travelling schedule:
The flight from Germany to Almaty takes app.
7 hours and takes you straight into a completely
different world, culture and people. Time is not an
issue and stress will not be a factor to consider. Forget
about punctuality and efficiency and step right into
a new world. Just enjoy it and relax wile listening to
arguments being held during your weapon import
which you will not understand anyways. Like many
other cultures in the Far East, the Kazaks also love
to use as many stamps and signatures as possibility.
Once all stamps and signatures are provided you are
ready and set to continue your trip by car the Altai
Mountains. Try to get some sleep during this drive as
the upcoming days will be demanding for you. After
a couple of hours drive you will have a break and
taste some of the typical food for the first time. By
the afternoon you will have reached the main camp
and have some time to acclimate. The main camps
have been equipped perfectly by us and our partner
ALAKOL TOURS. Until quite recently, hunters have
been accommodated in so called Yurts but slowly but
surely these are being replaced by wooden lodges.
The main camp includes guesthouses, kitchen tents
as well as showers and a sauna. Electrical power is
generated via a generator and the kitchen staff will
take care of their guests. During your hunt your
food will be provided by your guide who will serve
you venison, potatoes, sups, noodles, etc. Please
feel free to bring conserved foods as you like. You
should definitely bring a warm sleeping bag as well
as a light mattress. In areas above 2.500 metres it can
get rather cold during winter and summer times.
You should therefore make sure to bring cloves and
a bonnet with you. During the summer season it is
likely to rain and the right equipment to keep you dry
should therefore not be missing. After a good night
rest you will get up early in the morning and your
guides will have the horses saddled and packed. For
the next couple of days this will be your new family.
The tents will be pitched at any convenient place
and you now simply have to trust your experienced
guides. You will not be disappointed by your guides
because although they have been trained well,there
are only paid very little. They know exactly that if
the client is happy with the ibex trophy he will most
likely provide them with a nice tip for their work – a
tip on which most guides relay on in order to get by.
You will see plenty of ibex on a daily basis – given
that the weather conditions allow you to do so. Once
you have shot your ibex you have a very good reason
to be very proud of yourself. You have worked hard
for that trophy which you can now take back home
with you.
Equipment and weapon:
First of all: ibex hunts are tough and demanding
mountain hunts for which every hunter should
prepare in advance. Take great care in choosing
your equipment. It is important to bring warm,
wind and rain breaking clothes. Furthermore, you
will need a good pair of walking boots, make sure
not to bring new boots but worn boot to which you
are already used to.A backpack should also not be
missing. However, we will inform you about the
necessary equipment for your trip prior to your
departure from your country. For the actual hunt
it is absolutely necessary to bring a spotting scope
as well as a rangefinder. In general you will shoot
further then you might be used to. As distances of
up to 300 metres are considered as moderate we
recommend you to take some practise shots before
travelling to Kazakhstan. However, please don’t have
fellow hunters scare you with stories where you have
to shoot far beyond 400 metres, these people have no
experience with this sort of hunt and have most likely
never touched Kazakh soil. We recommend calibres
like 6,5×68, 7mm Remington Magnum, 8 x 68 S, all
sorts of .300 calibres (Winchester, Weatherby or
Pegasus) and many more. Feel free to contact us
regarding any questions for your hunting trip to
Kazakhstan. We are more then happy to consult you
on all aspects of your hunting trip to Kazakhstan.
Make use of our experience and trust our expertise.
Hunting seasons and climate:
the Siberian ibex can be hunted from the beginning
of August until the beginning of November. During
this time the weather conditions are stabile and
between August and September you might even be
able to hunt in your summer gear. First frosts appear
during October. By November you are most likely to
be hunting in snow. In summery however, weather
conditions are easily to comply with for the European
hunter. The altitudes of 3.000 – 3.400 metres also
don’t represent a problem for the physically trained
and prepared hunter. Traditionally, you will spend
quite some time hunting on horseback. This can be
a lot of fun and for most of our clients represents a
new form of hunting.
