Always depend on the time you will come to hunt, but we are going to see some general ideas.
In general lightweight clothing means synthetics (fleece, nylon, poly, etc.). Always when backpacking weight is a restricting factor, we do not need to forget that synthetics are lighter and quicker to dry. Wool is still as good as ever, but it is heavier than fleece and a lot harder to dry. It is a better Windstopper or Windbloc Fleece, more outdoor resisting and warm when wet. Don’t worry too much about having everything in camouflage. The most important is : three different layers of clothing.
The best are backpacker pants or biking or cross country ski pants of the stretchy type. Look for the pants and jacket with Windbloc fleece. During the hunt the weather can change from nice and warm to really cold. Make sure the high-tech stuff you buy is noiseless.
Look for something light, durable and noiseless. Gore Tex is just one of the options when it comes to breathable water stoppers but it is more expensive and noisier than others. Do not buy something cheap that will be noisy, hot and sweaty, rips instantly and soaks through after an hour in the rain. You need the best.
There is some high-tech underwear on the market that is ultra light and takes a little space. Look for products of Thermax, MTP, Thermastat, Capalene, polar fleece or polypropylene (these are good but they hold odours). The cotton will do as well. Some warm, thermal long johns and long sleeved shirt will be important in wintertime.
Everything works, from cotton and wool to fleece. The warm days last till the middle of December but be prepared to see snow as well!
A hat is needed to keep the sun out of your eyes. The later the season gets, the more important becomes to have a wool hat with ear flaps to keep you warm as snow, wind or rain can start at any moment of the day.
A light pair is nice for hiking or trekking in cool conditions. You will also need a warm pair, especially later in winter.
This is the most important item on your list. Footsore people cannot walk. The boots should be comfortable, broken in, not about to wear out and suited for steep, rocky terrain. A very stiff sole is as essential as are few seams. Look for the boots the mountain climbers use. The rocky terrain of the Spanish lands is very rough and sharp rocks can tear the shoes. Look for a model that has only two seams and take two sets of insoles, an old one and a new one. Changing between the two insoles might help eliminate hot spots. Be sure your boots are thinsulate and waterproof. Your feet have to stay dry and warm. Leather hiking boots are good.
Large backpacks either have an internal or external frame. We recommend an internal frame that is more comfortable and quieter. The pack should have a volume of 35 litres. Your entire outfit will have to fit in it. Try on several packs and choose the one that seems to be the most comfortable to wear.
Additional outside pockets and features to attach e.g. the thermarest make life on the trail a lot easier. You should also buy a waterproof pack cover; otherwise a garbage bag will have to be used to keep your gear dry.
Don’t scrimp on the optics. Buy very good, waterproof binoculars. They will not only last this hunt – you will love them forever. Leica, Zeiss and Swarovski are the top binocular lines you should be looking for. For ibexes hunting we recommend 10×40, 10×42 or 10×50. Remember that they need to be lightweight as well. Our guides usually carry spotting scopes and range finders. If you feel more comfortable taking yours as a back up or if you have a very good quality scope you might want to bring it. A tripod for the scope should be foldable and not exceed 2,20 pounds (1 kg).
It is very important that you know your gun and feel comfortable shooting it. Hunting preparations should include shooting practice from different positions including free hand. Practice shots from 225 yards (205 m) for ibex, chamois, mouflon, barbary sheep and balear goat; red deer and fallow deer from around 100 yards (91 m). A minimum calibre of 270 WIN and up with a minimum weight of 140 grains (9,07 gr) and up is recommended. In a standard setting your gun should shoot 3 inches (76,2 mm) high on 100 yards (91 m). You will be provided with the proper documentation to bring your gun into Turkey.
If you do not feel comfortable about bringing your own gun we have the gun rental service.
Remember: Scope rifle ,Gun Strap, Scope covers, Ammunition Case (metallic or plastic box) & Ammunition (2 boxes with twenty rounds each)
You can pack your luggage on a suitcase or a bag, it doesn’t matter the size, but you should take into account the weight allowed by the airline in order to avoid any charge due to an excess of luggage. The rifle must be kept in a designed box for arms and the ammunition must be placed in a separate box, this will be regulated by the current normative, and you will have to afford the established tax. We will carry your entire luggage to the hunting area and the hotel as well.
Please, contact us in order to know specifically information about the country you travel.
