Konya sheep in fact, is one of the two subspecies of mouflon that inhabits Turkey. While eastern population is classified as Ovis gmelini gmelini, known to hunters also as Armenian sheep, and seasonably migrates between Iran and the eastern Anatolia; the other population, totally isolated pocket of sheep listed as Ovis gmelini anatolica occupies the central part of the country. Bozdag mountains are the only place where these species can be hunted as it is the last refugee of these rare animals. The hunting ground lies around at 1800 – 2000 meters and can easily be reached from Konya with a short car ride of 45 minutes. Some glassing and driving is involved until a ram that bears a desirable horn length is spotted. Hunters can be accommodated in a five star hotel if desired.
