Mongolia provides the core habitat for the argali, posessing the highest body weight and largest horns of any wild sheep. Both the Altai and Gobi Desert species are found in Mongolia, and SCI and other conservation organizations recognize the Mid-Altai argali, or “Hangai,” as a separate record book entry. We have been conducting these classic sheep hunts for the serious hunters since 1962.
