First-class organisation of the hunt, a large animal population, very comfortable accommodation and wonderful scenery all contribute to making Spain a fascinating country in which to hunt. Spain has a very long hunting tradition. The hunt for Spanish ibex is generally held to be a classic. Hunt one of the four species of Spanish ibex (Gredos, Beceite, Ronda, Sierra Nevada).
The Gredos Ibex is the most known and biggest Ibex of the four Spanish Ibex. The in the west of Madrid located Sierra the Gredos, (about 180 km) domestic Gredos Ibex has noble, lyriform horns. The rut season is from the 15th of November - 15th of December. Outside of the rut season the Ibex are together in groups. We organize the hunt in the best Spanish hunting area, in the north hunting area of the state National Park Sierra de Gredos. The north hunting area is perfect for young and old and there are the biggest Gredos Ibex of Spain. Gold medal Ibex from 230 CIC points is guaranteed in 2 hunting days. The trophies are on average 250 CIC points. They shoot Ibex with 260 - 280 CIC per year. A gold medal Ibex has a horn length from 75 - 90 cm.
From the airport in Madrid, where we are picking you up, there are about 180 km to your hotel. By car it is about 2 - 2,5 hours. We can also offer you a helicopter transfer.

The Beceite ibex is the second largest ibex in Spain in terms of trophy size, after the Gredos ibex. The district extends over tens of thousands of hectares. Most parts of the hunting parts are very well developed and have mountain roads that sometimes lead to the very top. A normal to good physical condition is required. Hunting takes place at an altitude of 300 - 1,600 meters. The hunting season is from October to the end of May. The best hunting months are during the rut in November and December, as well as in the spring months in April and May. However, you can hunt ibex throughout the hunting season.
It is a 3.5 hour drive from Madrid Airport, 310 km east to the hunting area.
Your accommodation is a traditional Spanish hotel in the middle of the mountains. The cozy hotel is located in the small village of Aliaga, from where you drive to the hunting area every day. Depending on the weather and in which part of the hunting area you hunt, it is about a 25-40 minute drive. The average trophy size is in the silver medal class. You can count on a trophy of 215-230 CIC points. The game population is excellent and we can hunt with up to four hunters with a guiding one-to-one.

The Sierra Nevada Ibex lives southeast of Granada in the Sierra Nevada in Andalusia. The horns of this subspecies are similar to those of the ibex from Beceite or Gredos, but are shorter and significantly weaker at the base. The district is located in the middle of the Sierra Nevada. You have a wonderful view of the sea from all mountain peaks. The area is rocky and only partially covered with thick bush. The horns reach an average length of 55 to 65 cm, better ones also 65 to 70 cm.

The Ronda Ibex is the smallest species of the Spanish Ibex. This species lives west of Malaga (Andalusia), in the Ronda Mountains. The horns of this subspecies point backwards, in a classic V-shape and are more similar to those of the Alpine ibex. Thus, the Ronda ibex differs significantly from the other Spanish species. On average, the horns reach lengths of 50 to 55 cm, better ones also 65 to 70 cm or in exceptional cases even 80 cm. The Ronda Mountains are very similar to the Sierra Nevada.
