Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt:An excellently organized hunt in all respects on private land, government authorised game reserve, and community backed free range hunting areas. Pir Danish Ali's game scout had prescouted both irials in excellent areain the Kirther mountains ( Blandford urial ) and Salt range (Punjab urial ). Then moved to Gilgit-Baltisan region to hunt the Himalayan ibex in Karakoram mountains, 9 local communities of game scouts scouting for ibex .n Money paid for hunting tags, 80 % of which goes directly to the communities. Forward thinking, progressive game conservation. Never felt unsafe and people extremely friendly and helpful!
Equipment Recommendations:In Karakorams be prepared for long range shots. Good optics a must.

Additional Hunter Comments and/or Outfitter/Booking Agent Rebuttals
I would tell all Americans not to hesitate hunting Pakistan. Forward thinking conservation, community back plans that incentivize locals to protect and conserve those animals. Danish even entertained and lodged me at his luxurious private home after the hunt finished a few days early. You can hunt the Blanford urial on his family's private, armed game scout guarded land. Danish is western educated and his English impecable, well connected politically, and a darn nice guy. The northen areas where one hunts the ibex in the Karakoram mountains are spectacular areas full of moderate, progressive, friendly people. Unbelievable experience!
