Tur Hunt Information
There are three species of Tur in the world; Eastern or Dagestan Tur, Mid Caucasian Tur and Western or Kuban Tur. Tur are considered both sheep and goat for GSCO recording purposes. We won't debate what they should be called but we know these are special animals and they are worthy of a separate Hunt Page here. Dagestan's have sheepy horns, resembling Blue Sheep or Aoudad. Kuban's have more ibex type horns and the Mid's are somewhere in between the other two. All three species act and move both like goats and sheep, they are very intriguing.
