I just got back to Karachi from the best hunt of my entire life. Over the course of four days, I took 2 boar, a coyote, 3 doves, and a beautiful 41.5" (from skull to tip) ibex. Pakistan is indeed an incredible place. Anyway, I'll have pictures in an hour or two, when I get to a place with faster internet.

When I read this I first thought it was a joke. Seriously, why would you go to a SH*T Hole like that? With the Taliban and all running around why take a chance. They aren't too fond of the USA over there.

I have a timeshare in Acapulco if you are interested? I also am organizing a hiking trip along the Iran/Iraq border for those who aren't faint hearted!:D

Obviously, the OP didn't think it was a craphole. Pakistan has a lot of beautiful areas...it's not all just hajis and burkas.

While parts of that region of the world are sheetholes.....there are some very nice spots. I grew up in the Saudi Arabia as my Dad worked for Aramco, and where we lived was a big sandbox. A short plane ride away in the mountains in the Asir area is beautiful and full of wildlife. I say Kudo's for having the cojones to hunt in an exotic locale.

Hate the extremists polluting Islam for their own evil purposes. Don't hate the region for having to endure worse BS than we do.

Well if you are taken by the Taliban, do you expect Ex-Prez Bill Clinton to arrive and negotiate your release?

I'm pretty sure you're in more danger crossing the street, statistically speaking, than you are of getting taken by the Taliban while hunting in Pakistan...

Sounds like an awesome trip, but they don't have coyotes over there. They're jackals. ;)

so which weapons are legal for hunting game over there?

Coded-Dude

from wikipedia

Pakistani citizens and special category of foreigners can legally own firearms. A license is required to purchase a firearm which involves payment of fees, a processing time ranging from a few days to months and registration of the firearm with the local authorities. Present laws allow ownership of handguns of any caliber (at one time this was restricted to an upper limit of .38-caliber). Shotguns above 12-gauge are not allowed. A civilian permit for a full-automatic weapon may be issued by a local police agency, but typically the firearm may not leave the state in which the permit was issued.source (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_culture_in_Pakistan)

can't find much about laws regarding hunting in particular...

My wife's an Aramco Brat too, and you're right about that part of the world.

My dad knew 2 people that used to take ears. Please put pics and sometimes you need to live a little dangerously. I'd have 0 problems going to Acapulco (Mexico is not that scary people) and I'd like to visit the Afghan/Pakistan tribal border areas one day.

I worked in Quetta for a couple of weeks, which is in the middle of the tribal area on the Paki-Afghan border. The villagers there used to plaster donkey crap to the sides of their houses to dry it for winter fuel.

I was contracting over there in mid to late 70's . We would have loved to live like ARAMCO did, except we were rving it between 21 Airport sites in KSA and Yemen.There are some beautiful sites in the South Western mountain ranges near Khamis Mushayt and Abha. Picked up a very cool matchlock when I was there.

Again, I'm sorry about the wait for pics. I am currently staying at the Army base in Karachi as a guest of the Major General in charge. The photos are currently being uploaded to flickr but it may take some time.

As a response to those saying Pakistan is dangerous for an American, I have to say I have never felt unsafe. I have traveled through much of Sindh and have never had a single issue. Even in the poorer villages in the interior, everyone is just doing their thing, not causing an issue for anyone else. It is important to note, however, that I had a connection (through the general) with all of the major landowners in the areas we visited.

It was an amazing experience altogether, and certainly not one I could have had in the states. I have a blog on my experiences there with a few pics up already, link is here:

I tried uploading just now and flickr is timing out because of the slow connection. The blog pics are all I have for now, so please have a read. BTW in the pics I am the white dude with the stupid grin

yes, I suppose I am. Our host called it a coyote and the bullet blew half of its face off so I had no reason to doubt it.

Either way... sounds like a job well done. LOL! Did you use a caller or handcalls?

How did you get on the pigs? Glass and stalk?

I called them in by hand. We hunted the pigs at night with a spotlight.
