Hunt for Sierra Nevada Ibex

In southern Spain you can hunt the Sierra Nevada ibex. This sub-species are smaller than the Gredos and Beceite ibex, but this does not mean that the hunt is any less exciting. The coat are lighter in colour than its relatives to the north, where, especially the ibex in the Gredos mountains have a tendency to get very dark as they get older. The horns are strong, and also beautifully lyre-shaped.


  • Hunting in magnifient scenery in a mountain landscape 1,000 - 2,000m in altitude
  • Hunt for Sierra Nevada ibex in southern Spain
  • The powerful horns typically reach a length of 55 - 70 cm
  • Exciting, classical hunting

3 days from $5,395

The hunting season for these two sub-species is October - May. The best hunting occurs in October, November and December.

As is usually the case with mountain living game, the Spanish ibex is both shy and very wary. After millennia of being pursued by people, eagles, foxes, wolves, lynx and other predators they have developed extremely sharp senses.

There senses of smell and hearing are fantastic, while their sense of sight is really in a class of its own.

All this together with the terrain they live in make the Spanish ibex a very worthy opponent and a very sought after trophy.

The hunt itself is a classic mountain hunt. In the early hours of the morning you will try to locate your quarry, which often be grazing in lower lying areas, from a vantage place high in the mountains.

By using powerful binoculars/spotting scopes the hunter and guide will evaluate the size of the trophies, to see if there is an animal of the correct size in the herd.

At this point your distance from your quarry can be anything from a few hundred meters to several kilometers. Now starts the part of the hunt that many hunters believe raises this form of hunting above all other hunts, namely the stalk. The planning of the stalking is critical, as often for long periods, in some cases several hours, the hunter will have no visual contact with the ibex.
