Are you ready to chase prey in the mountains of Northern Areas Pakistan?

The recording horn from Pakistan measured 140cm and came from Gilgit Baltistan. It had a basal girth of 26.5cm and a gap of 63.5cm between tips and certainly, in Gilgit Baltistan ahead with horns over this length would be considered an exceptionally good trophy.

Confined to relatively arid mountain ranges of the Karakoram and Himalayas living well above the tree line only in the higher more precipitous regions. They occur from about 3500m to over 5000m in the Northern Areas of Pakistan, though they sometimes migrate from one mountain range to another in winter and in so doing have been seen crossing valleys below 2000m

They are fairly widespread through the higher mountain ranges in Gilgit Baltistan in the Karakoram Range, the Haramosh Range, and the probably the highest population of Ibex now survives in Northern Areas of Pakistan in Hunza Valley, especially in the watershed of Khunjerab and to the east of Khunjerab. In Gilgit Baltistan, they are still fairly plentiful in Ishkoman, Yasin, and Hunza Valley. Further west they occur in the Hindukush mountain range and throughout Northern Chitral down to about 32 kilometers north of Chitral and in the higher mountain ranges of Chilas and on the slopes of Malika Parbat Mountain.

Himalayan Ibex has a wider distribution and is plentiful and its future survival is not so threatened in the Northern Areas of Pakistan largely due to the inaccessibility of its habitat provided by the very extensive concentration of very high mountain ranges in the extreme northwestern region. Baltistan and Hunza valley is undoubtedly the strongholds of the Himalayan Ibex in the region today. In early spring the Ibex are half-starved and eagerly seek new sprouting grass when it available at lower milder elevations. This is the only time when they descend as low as 2500m and are thus much easier to hunt.

The trophy hunting trip in this inaccessible area needs careful planning. Permits from local and federal authorities specially import and re-export licenses for the firearms as well as permits to carry and use these inside the country are required. The process often takes several weeks to process and must be obtained before the arrival of the hunting party in the country.
