Siberian Ibex in the mountains of Kazakhstan

This story is not about sheep but regarding a siberian ibex.
Almaty oblast of Kazakhstan is quite reach in terms of ibexes and I have a great opportunity to hunt on them.
This story is about my first animal taken in December 2011.
The hunting was carried out on 3400 m. altitude and temperature was -15C.
Then I had a CZ 550 Lux, 308 with Leupold VX-3 4.5-14x40.
The distance of shooting was 350 m. And the cartridge was Hornady A-MAX, 168.
The bullet hit to the neck and the ibex fall down right away.
Te weight of the animal was about 100 kg.

Very nice Ibex! I can't believe that your wife let you hang that on her wall.

We have some Ibex down here in New Mexico but the tag is very hard to get.

Good looking Ibex. I got one in Kyrgyzstan a few years ago. They live in some very beautiful and rugged mountains. Sounds like it was a good hunt. Congrats. Bruce

Congratulations on a very fine ibex. I would love to hunt them sometime as I hear it is a challenging endeavor. Good shooting and good luck on future hunts.
