The Ekenler family

The EKENLER Family has been landowners in Tarsus, CUKUROVA region for more than 300 years. Hunting is a family tradition proudly passed from father to son and finally to us. We have always had a passion for the wild, which has been supported by our father who took us to many hunts all over the world.

With some of the world’s finest species on our doorstep, we have naturally concentrated on big game hunting.

Our family has controlled the hunting in large areas of the Taurus Mountains for generations. Therefore, we operate as a private family hunting estate rather than an agent buying from different concessions all over the region. As a result, we have controlled, conserved and developed our areas in a manner that we believe to be unique in the whole country. This approach is the key to our way of maintaining the highest standards in everything we do.

Anatolian Bezoar Ibex is a most popular big game of our mountains and has a very special reputation amongst hunters from all around the World, which is a very challenging and special hunt for us. We have managed to protect and control the game by careful, selective hunting and we are proud to say that we have some of Turkey’s finest trophy Ibex hunting-with trophies that most can only dream about.

We have also been living this dream of ethical, sportive hunting, conserving both the game and our wonderful natural environment for ourselves, our clients and guests , now and in the future for next generations. Our extensive worldwide hunting experience means that we see the trip from a client’s eyes, which we think is vital.

We have been organizing and carrying out hunts for guests, with a very experienced and trained team of full-time staff for over 20 years. We do organize other big game hunts   such as; Anatolian Stag, Anatolian Chamois, Anatolian Gazelle ,Western Kaunos Ibex , Hybrid Ibex and  Konya Sheep and Anatolian Boar. Our extensive worldwide hunting experience means that we see the trip from a client’s eyes, which we think is vital.

We do not over promise, over sell or over hunt. Our family reputation is far too important fort hat. This experience, applied to the management of our home hunting areas, equips us to provide you with the hunting trip of a lifetime!

Finally, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and thanks to all of our past and present clients whom have put full trust in us for organizing exclusive hunting trips in Turkey and Central Asia!
