About hunting in Europe
Whether you hunt ibex in Spain, chamois in Austria, grouse in Scotland, or wild boars in Romania, hunting in Europe is a fascinating and rewarding experience. Hunting in Europe is inextricably intertwined with the continent’s rich history, and the customs and traditions that have been passed down through the generations are an important part of the adventure. European countries are known for their intensive scientific game management, which has led to excellent trophy quality for many species. Hunting in Europe is also a great choice for a hunter who wishes to combine a few days of hunting with a family vacation or business trip. Hunts in Europe tend to be well-organized, sophisticated operations. A variety of hunting techniques are utilized, depending on the country and the species. Driven hunts for big game are common in many areas, but spot-and-stalk as well as hunting from stands or “high seats” are common techniques as well. Europe’s big-game animals include chamois, several types of ibex, mouflon, red deer, moose, reindeer, wild boar, sika deer, wolves, and Eurasian brown bears. Game birds are also plentiful, including black, red, and willow grouse, ptarmigan, geese, ducks, woodcock, snipe, red-legged partridge, and pheasant.

Southeastern Ibex hunt Spain
The southeast mountain ibex can be found throughout eastern Andalusia and can be seen in the provinces of Granada, Almeria, Jaen and the eastern area of the province of Malaga. The southeast mountain ibex is less corpulent than the Gredos and Beceite males, an adult weighing about 65-70 kg while the others tend to be 15-20 kg heavier. Regarding the colour, the chest, stomach and hindquarters can be pitch black in the winter months – though not as black as the Gredos male which can be almost completely black all over. In terms of horn shape, these males have the greatest variation in shape – amongst which Ronda, Gredos and “ram-style” (similar to the ram or mouflon, with closing of the horns on top). The trophy of the southeast male may be as long as that of the Gredos but the base of the Gredos might reach some 28 cm, while the southeast male commonly reaches 24-25 cm. The quality of the average trophy lies around 65-70 cm, with some bigger ones taken down each year.
