The Beceite ibex is endemic to the rugged and picturesque Maestrazgo mountain range in Eastern Spain. This region, characterized by dramatic cliffs, deep valleys, and expansive plateaus, provides a unique habitat for the Beceite ibex to thrive. The Maestrazgo is renowned for its scenic beauty and remote wilderness, making it a sought-after destination for hunters and nature enthusiasts alike. The Beceite ibex exhibits notable physical traits that set it apart from other ibex subspecies. These majestic animals are characterized by their large body size and impressive horn length. Their horns typically display a graceful curvature, with long, slender shapes that often sweep outward and slightly forward. The Beceite ibex's horns are prized by hunters for their aesthetic appeal and trophy potential, making them a coveted species for trophy hunting enthusiasts.

The Beceite ibex is well-adapted to the rugged and arid terrain of the Maestrazgo region. This habitat is characterized by rocky outcrops, steep slopes, and sparse vegetation dominated by Mediterranean scrubland. Beceite ibex are agile climbers, capable of navigating the steep cliffs and rocky ledges of their mountainous habitat with ease. They feed on a variety of grasses, herbs, and shrubs found in the region, utilizing their keen senses and agility to evade predators and thrive in their challenging environment. Like other ibex subspecies in Spain, the Beceite ibex has faced conservation challenges in the past due to factors such as habitat loss, hunting pressure, and competition with domestic livestock. However, concerted conservation efforts aimed at habitat preservation, population monitoring, and regulated hunting have contributed to the recovery of Beceite ibex populations in recent years. These efforts have helped ensure the long-term viability of Beceite ibex populations and their critical mountain habitats.

The Beceite ibex holds cultural significance in the Maestrazgo region, where it is revered as a symbol of the area's natural heritage and wildlife diversity. The ibex's presence in the rugged mountains of eastern Spain has inspired local folklore, traditions, and cultural celebrations, highlighting the deep connection between the people of the Maestrazgo and their natural environment.

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.

Overall, the Beceite ibex is a captivating and iconic species that epitomizes the wild beauty and rugged charm of the Maestrazgo mountain range. With its impressive physical characteristics, unique habitat preferences, and cultural significance, the Beceite ibex stands as a symbol of resilience and conservation success in the picturesque landscapes of eastern Spain.

NOTE: 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.
