Punjab Urial hunt in Pakistan - A once in a lifetime opportunity!
Unique trophy hunting opportunity at a 10% discount!
The Punjab Urial (Ovis orientalis vignei) is an endemic sub species to Pakistan and is protected under the Federal- and Provincial laws. It is known for it's limited distribution and is found only in the Salt and Kala Chitta Mountain ranges in the Punjab, and is confined by a coniferous forest belt in the north, the Jhelum River in the east and south and Indus River in the west.
Hunters are will drive about 30-40 minutes every morning in comfortable 4x4 trucks to get to the hunting area. Since the animals are in good numbers it does not take long before the first bands of rams are spotted. Hunting is generally done by stalking while observing the feeding and rest areas. As soon as you spot the desired trophy, you complete the stalk on foot. Shooting distances can be long, as the Punjabs roam in groups, are very attentive, and due to the rugged terrain.
Punjab Urial sheep are incredibly beautiful!
Males have a white bib and a long black neck ruff in the winter coat. Most Punjab Urials have a narrow, two-colored saddle patch (black in front, white behind), but in some individuals it may be all white or completely absent. The horns are cervical, curving tightly in some animals and less so in others. The average trophy size is 24-30 inches/60-76 cm
The primary objective for this and the other trophy hunting programs in Pakistan, is the conservation of large mammals and their habitats. This is achieved through a system which benefits local communities by providing incentives to conserve this, and other valuable wildlife resources.
