This is a specie whose horns are reminiscent of those of the African Kudu and the animals are particularly magnificent with their long hair, specially a long bib and flare horns. These animals are distributed along the Chitral Valley in the northwestern mountains of the Hindu Kush. In this region, they can be hunted within the scope of 3 separate local conservation programmes. Trophies average between 38" and 42" and fine ones of up to 45" can be found. The area is 6000´-7500´ and covered with oak forests which are green all the year round.
