Where to hunt Southeastern Ibex

Southeastern ibex, also known as Sierra Nevada ibex, along with Ronda, Gredos and Beceite ibex, is one of the four types of ibex to be found in Spain. Trophy books have different entries for all of them, because of significant difference in size and shape of the horns, even though biologists distinguish only two subspecies. True to its name, the southeastern ibex inhabits the Sierra Nevada range that starts in the area of the famous city of Granada and rolls down to the Mediterranean coast. The Sierra Nevada range features some of the highest mountains in Spain.

Price distribution

Southeastern ibex hunting opportunities may start at about $5,000, but usually go up to $10,000 or more. The price is often made up of daily rate + trophy fee. The daily rate, that is, the price of the hunt itself, may range from $2,000 to $4,000, while the trophy fee could be as high as $15,000 or more for an exceptionally large animal. Hunters who care more about experience than horn size are advised to look for flat-fee based hunts, which are rarer but can still be found. The more expensive ibex hunts are usually package deals, with more than one trophy or species included, or calculated for a group of a few hunters. Don’t forget to add the cost of preparing and shipping your trophy back home.

When to hunt Southeastern Ibex?

Southeastern ibex hunting season in Spain is shorter than for other kinds of ibex (except the Ronda ibex), and runs from November 1 to May 1. The best time for ibex hunting is usually the rut, which happens in late November – early December. Some hunters, however, prefer to hunt the end of the season, in late April, as spring hunts are considered to be less exhausting than winter hunts.

Hunting Southeastern Ibex is the classic mountain hunt, not much different from from hunting any other kind of ibex. The hunter, accompanied by an experienced guide, starts out in the morning to glass for animals; once a suitable animal is found, the stalk begins. The animals usually move about and feed in the mornings and evenings, so prepare to get up early to be up in the mountains by sunrise and end the hunt at sundown. There may be a chance, though, to have a siesta in the afternoon, when the ibex bed to chew cud, and are hard to see.

Why hunt Southeastern Ibex?

Southeastern ibex is larger than Ronda ibex, but smaller than other varieties. It has long curving horns that sometimes grow with points towards the bases, roughly resembling a mouflon, and in other animals looking rather like a very broad corkscrew. It is amazing how populations of basically the same species, located near each other, develop such different shapes of horns, and it’s easy to understand hunters who seek to collect all four subspecies of Spanish ibex. The southeastern ibex range is located not far from popular resorts and important historic sights, especially those with Moorish heritage, so this hunt combines perfectly with a family vacation. Top that with an exciting classic mountain hunting adventure, and you’ll see why people keep returning to Spain over and over again.
