The Gredos Ibex (Capra pyrenaica victoriae), also known as the Iberian Ibex, is a subspecies of wild goat native to the Gredos mountain range in central Spain. They're medium-sized goats with a sturdy build and a distinctive coat. They typically have short, coarse fur that ranges in color from light brown to dark gray, blending in with the rocky terrain of their mountainous habitat. One of the most prominent features of the Gredos Ibex is its long, backward-curving horns, which are present in both males and females but are larger and more robust in males. The horns of the Gredos Ibex are a prized trophy for hunters due to their impressive size and shape. In males, the horns can grow to lengths exceeding 90 centimeters (about 35 inches) and form a distinctive spiral pattern. The horns are used for defense, dominance displays during mating season, and as a symbol of social status within the herd.

Gredos Ibex are social animals that typically live in small herds consisting of females and their offspring, with adult males often forming smaller bachelor groups. During the breeding season, which typically occurs in the fall, males compete for access to females by engaging in displays of dominance and clashing their horns with rival males. They are renowned for their impressive horns, which curl backward in a distinctive spiral pattern. Trophy selection is an important aspect of hunting for Gredos Ibex, with hunters typically targeting mature males with large, symmetrical horns. The size and quality of the ibex's horns are key factors in determining the success of the hunt.

Hunting for Gredos Ibex in Spain is an exhilarating and challenging experience, offering hunters the opportunity to pursue one of the most prized trophies in the country. They inhabit the rugged and mountainous terrain of the Gredos mountain range in central Spain. This area is characterized by steep cliffs, rocky outcrops, dense vegetation, and high-altitude plateaus. The challenging terrain and harsh weather conditions make hunting for Gredos Ibex both physically demanding and rewarding.

The hunting season for Gredos Ibex in Spain typically runs from September to May, with specific dates varying depending on the region and local regulations. Stalking is the most common hunting method used for Gredos Ibex. Hunters carefully track the ibexes' movements, using binoculars and spotting scopes to locate them from a distance. Once a suitable trophy animal is spotted, hunters must approach stealthily, taking advantage of natural cover and terrain features to get within shooting range.

Spain, because of its privileged position and the quality of its hunts, is now considered one of the most popular hunting destinations of Huntin' Fool Adventures. The abundance of game animals, the variety of species, and the quality of the hunts and trophies, have positioned Spain as one of the most desired destinations for the great number of hunters who have relied on Huntin' Fool Adventures. The diversity of ecosystems, with many mountain ranges (Cantabrian, Pyrenees, Gredos, Beceite, Tortosa, Sierra Nevada and Ronda Mountains) and plains, are the living areas for the following hunting species: Ibex (4 subspecies), Chamois (2 Subspecies), Barbary Sheep, Mouflon Sheep, Balearian Goat, Red Stag, Fallow Deer, Roe Deer, Wild Boar, and Wolf.

Ibex hunting season is from mid-October to late May, but the best period is from mid November-December, during the rutting season. It's not necessary, but as it is with all species, when animals are in their mating season, it's easier to approach them due them being preoccupied. Hunting during the rut does not affect the success or opportunity ratio whatsoever. Hunting is arranged in National Reserves and on private game reserves (all free-range/fair chase). You can hunt directly from the very well situated hunting lodges. Depending on the hunting area, accommodations may vary. Some of the areas offer good hotel accommodations. Private exclusive guest houses in hunting areas may also be used. Sometimes in that area a short drive may be needed (30-45 min.) or horse riding.

Spain is located in the Northern hemisphere and is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. During the Autumn and Spring time, you can expect any kind of weather: hot, windy, rainy. Winter time is usually sunny but chilly in the mornings. In the Pyrenees, they can also have some snow. In Gredos it can be colder but sunny, having some snow in November and December. In Beceite, it can be windy but sunny, and also chilly in the mornings. In the Sierra Nevada's, it can get really hot in October, but starts to cool down in November, and can have some snow in December. In Ronda, the weather is usually pleasant.

If any ibex does not meet the size, there will be a $3,000 USD refund.

Their partner guides private tours throughout all Spain. Very much recommended adding some tour days to your hunt. Great food, wine, people, culture and amazing history.
