    Forget about "can't" and "never". Marco Polo Sheep was on the top of my "never" list and guess what, this fall it is actually happening. This animal was on my "never" list right up to just a few months ago so never bank on never. I have seen Lord Derby 7 day hunts offered (very rarely mind you) for 12k including LDE trophy fee. There is a lot to be said about being in the right place at the right time, it was not the right time for me with the LDE but MP is another story...

    LOL what is it with women and Blackbuck? My wife wants one badly too, she will be hunting one in Texas in Feb for her birthday. Gorgeous critters.

    Me too!!!
    I think my biggest hunting dream is to hunt those two with my bow.

    I also would love to hunt Black Buck and Asian Water Buffalo with my bow.
    And I couldn't care less about on what continent I hunt them.

    Hunting pen raised Lion, Tiger or Jaguar in small enclosures is nothing for me, but I don't condemn others for doing it.
    And as long as the animal is farmed, it doesn't matter if it is a Lion, Tiger or Jaguar you hunt in Africa in my opinion.

    Diamondhitch, Good luck on your MP hunt. Are you going after a mid Asian ibex as well? Which country are you hunting? I definitely want to read your hunting report when you get back.

    Jerome really knows how to pick the topics, eye opening to read peoples thoughts about this. From what I am seeing, I still think it comes right down to the individuals idea of hunting. I also commend everyone, a topic like this could have easily gotten out of had anywhere else (anywhere but AH) that's why I love it here.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I always consider AH, a part of my family, there are a bunch of good people on here that love hunting and nature in general.

    Jerome just started the topic. Now he is just setting back smiling at what he created not adding anything. He doesn't want us getting bored.:thumb::nice::master:

    Thanks, it was originally supposed to be just Ibex but morphed into MP and Ibex. I will be hunting in Kyrgyzstan and will definitely post a report on my return. Less than 2 months to go!!!

    An MP hunt is something I would like to do someday. I don't know if I want to work as hard as it would take for me to get into the kind of shape I would need to be in for a hunt like that. I can't think of any hunt as tough physically as an MP hunt. All the best on getting great trophies. I certainly want to read your report and see pictures!

    Well the horses really do most of the work, from what I have heard other than no oxygen it is actually physically no harder than a Bighorn or Dall Sheep hunt. I did tell him that I am fit and willing to go to whatever lengths to get to where the big boys live and do what it takes to kill a cranker! I may regret those words but I do love a good mountain hunt and sleeping like a sled dog curled up with my head tucked out of the wind in a snow storm is no big deal so I don't think it will be too stressful.
