I just got done with my hunt in Armenia, and on my third trip there this year I finally got that elusive Armenian mouflon. I also did several cataract operations at the request of my hosts. Some unique things happened, as well. I was given my first ride in a Rolls Royce owned by a local businessman (I operated on his father), and drank a glass of wine of vintage 1913 (my first and only opportunity like this–it costs $10,000 a bottle!). Now I’m in Moscow on my way home. I’m tired of speaking Russian and want to speak English […]
I’ve just completed a two-week hunting trip to Mongolia, taking a 49-inch argali, a white-tailed gazelle, and a Gobi ibex. I leave for Armenia shortly to again try to take the wary Armenian mouflon sheep. The picture is of my Hangai argali taken late last month in Mongolia.
