Sost: On Wednesday, 2011 Mr. Jea Link from USA hunted a Himalayan Ibex at Shahkatar Khunjerav, winning a 40 inch trophy. Again, on Thursday, Link hunted a second Ibex, with a 44 inch trophy in the Wadkhon area of Khunjerav.
The hunter paid USD 3000 for each of the hunt to the Khunjerav Villagers Organization (KVO), a civil society initiative working on conservation and holistic development of the area.
According to the law, 80% of the fee will be kept by Khunjerav Villagers Organization, on behalf of the community, while 20% will be handed over to the GB Government. KVO will use the money for development of the area through investment in education and health.
