This is my sixths story about a journey for finding a Trophy Champion.
I got lucky enough to get a license to hunt an ibex this fall.
So know to get this Trophy became not just my personal, but almost a governmental taskJ)
I called my friend and he gladly agrees to join me.
Of course more likely we could find a Champion in a most remote regions, that hard to reach by people.
Almost 24 hours later we get to our campsite. Even after this exhausting car trip and then a long horse ride we could focus a first group of ibexes. I counted 24 of them
We got very excited and decided to go to bed earlier so we save a more energy for a long hunt tomorrow.
4am, time to get up and get ready to hunt. Morning was beautiful. The “Indian summer” is one of the gorgeous seasons time in mounting.
After we ride about a mile I notice a huge group of ibexes. Looking closer on them in binocular I could tell that it’s about 100 of them! To be exact- 97 as my friend countedJ) And there least 20 of them has a horns over 115 sm! That’s an unbelievable fortune.
in center very big ibex ! distance 1 mil
So we get closer to them and when the distance was about 200 meters I heard a terrible noise.
What the hell ??? OMG, it was a border guard helicopter (we are pretty close to a border with China). Next second all ibexes where gone like a mirageJ)
Frustrating, disappointing? Yes!
But then I decide that it’s going to be even more interesting if our trip won’t end that fast.
So we went up along the river. I found a fresh track of Snow lion and realize how high I climb. To prevent a high altitude sickness I had to get lower.
