About hunting in Asia
Hunting in Asia is a grand adventure. The world’s largest continent, it holds more varieties of large animals than any other continent on Earth. Asia is a paradise for the mountain hunter, with the largest variety of wild sheep and goats found anywhere in the world. Asia also offers opportunities to hunt bears, gazelles, roe deer, stags, and other antlered game. The continent not only offers great hunting but also fantastic travel opportunities, with the chance to experience different cultures. In addition to wild country and lots of game, you will see mosques, temples, historic ruins, and ancient cities and towns. Some of the most sought-after species in Asia include the many species of ibex, from the bezoar ibex of Turkey to the mid-Asian ibex of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan to the Altai ibex of Mongolia. Asia is home to the world’s largest wild sheep, the argali. Best known is the Marco Polo argali, hunted in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, but the Altai and Gobi argali of Mongolia are also impressive, sought-after sheep. The tur of the Caucasus Mountains are said to be among the most difficult animals in the world to hunt because of the steep terrain where they live. Huge red stags and large roe deer are found in many parts of Asia, as are massive brown bears. Travel in Asia can be challenging because of the large distances to be covered, so some patience and flexibility in your plans is helpful. In many cases there is also a language barrier, as English is not widely spoken in much of Asia. Most outfitters will provide an interpreter in camp, but it’s likely your guide will not speak English. Depending on the region and species to be hunted, the terrain can be very difficult, as Asia holds the world’s highest and most rugged mountain ranges. Asia is not an easy place to hunt, but it holds great rewards for the adventurous hunter.

Marmot hunt 1x1 Tajikistan
The long-tailed marmot (Marmota caudata) or golden marmot is a marmot species in the family Sciuridae. It occurs in mountainous regions of Central Asia at elevations from 3,200 to 4,850 m (10,500 to 15,910 ft). The long-tailed marmot is a large, sturdy rodent weighing up to 9 kg (20 lb). The eyes are close to the top of the rather-flattened head, the ears are small and the neck is short. The forelegs are longer than the hind legs and the tail is longer than in other species of marmot. The long-tailed marmot occurs in Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, India and China. The long-tailed marmot is highly important prey for the grey wolf, the golden eagle, snow leopard prey and brown bear. In Eastern Pamirs of Tajikistan, marmots are almost the main prey species during the summer time for all big carnivores, which is why the conservation of marmots is highly important. The eradications of marmots from Mongolian steppe lead to catastrophic ecological disasters and loss of biodiversity and decreasing of flagship species populations, including most endangered bear species the Gobi Bear. Ironically, it is believed that prohibition of killing marmots will protect them, but in the real life, this does not work at all. Local communities hunt them for fat and meat. Livestock disturbs marmots and compete for the food resources and push them spend more time under the ground. Herder dogs killing dramatic number of marmots annually.
