Where to hunt Balearian Goat
The Balearian Goat, or Balearian Boc, is endemic to the Balearian islands, located in the Mediterranean Sea near Spain, most notably on the Tramontana range in Mallorca. Like the Mouflon, they were introduced to the islands by humans in times immemorial, presumably by the Phoenicians circa 2,000 b.c. After so many generations in freedom, you’d never know they were, and in fact the SCI recognizes Balearan Boc as part of the Capra slam.
The average price of a Balearian Goat hunt is about $6,000, although you can find a discounted hunt a bit cheaper. The hunt price is usually made up of the daily rate (about $500) and the trophy fee. The trophy fee may depend on the size of the horns, and some outfitters may charge up to $10,000 for a record animal.

Balearian Goat hunting does not differ in principle from other forms of mountain hunting. You’ll have to do a fair bit of climbing before you reach an observation point high up, from which you and your guide will scan the area for a suitable trophy. Once such is identified, it’s some more climbing before you stalk it into range. The guide will estimate the trophy size and give you the go-ahead to shoot. The difficulty of the hunt may vary; for extra challenge consider hunting with a bow or crossbow.
