Big Game, Birds or Ducks, in Armenia, under the shadows of Mount Ararat
In Armenia we use jump shooting and/or pointer dog hunting, for birds. The most popular game birds in Armenia are: Common Quail, Chucker, Duck, Eurasian Coot, and Great Snipe.
By far the most active hunting is during harvest season – August/September when we hunt the common quail in the recently harvested wheat and barley fields. The shooting is fast and many birds are flushed. As Wayne West, a local expat from the USA, says, “Arthur’s guns, dogs, four wheel drives and hunting areas provide great quail hunting combined with superb local flavor.” Dogs are almost unnecessary during the early season, except for retrieving. Pointers are the preferred method in the later season during October.
Duck hunting in the South is done in the usual manner of early morning and evening blinds, but the jump shooting can also be productive during the day.
If you’re hardy and looking for the bigger game, Bezoar Ibex, Armenian Mouflon, Wild Boar, Armenian Bear, can be found all through our beautiful mountainous areas.
Our hunting tours depend on the hunting season.
We can arrange everything to make a hunting expedition a memorable event during your stay in Armenia.
