Thank you all for congratulations. It was really beautiful but challenging hunting. This one is my favorite type of game. The most difficult is to see them before they notice you and approaching. Every flock has ones responsible for scanning around and any suspicious movements in the radius of 1500 m. most likely will be spotted.
Another tough thing is riding a horse. Sometimes we ride for 20 miles a day on the steep mountains between rocks, rivers and trees - it is quite extreme and painful

You are right first she was in panic when she saw it (so big!!!!) but after I explained that I would hang at my cabinet she given in.

This goat was taken in the same mountains but from other side, from Kazakhstan. Kyrgyzstan is the great place to get a golden trophy, it is still possible to meet 1.5 m. ibex.
