As we have already been announcing, December is synonym of “rut season” for the 4 species of the Spanish Ibex Grand Slam; so together with our December hunters we geared up our camera as December is when the Spanish Ibex are visible and in full sight all over the mountain.
An experienced hunter knows that in order to have a successful hunt you need 3 things: good weather, a good hunting area, and a good aim. We can´t control the first thing, but we do provide the best hunting areas and the third is on you.
Spanish Ibex Grand Slam
In December we´ve had 3 hunters that have completed their Spanish Ibex Grand Slam. You will see, read and watch more about this hunt on Cabela´s instinct soon.
9 ibex in 12 days. Not the best weather we could have encountered, but we took advantage of every beam of sunshine and made the most of our trip.
Here you can see some pictures of this amazing hunting trip:

Father-daughter Gredos Ibex hunt
In December we´ve also accommodated a father-and-daughter hunt, when Gary and Paula Gardner visited us for the first time and they hunted a Gold Gredos Ibex. Here are some images from their trip:
All these hunts and animals can be seen in a short video that we´ve put together. In this video you can see the different type of terrain and the differences between the 4 types of species from the Spanish Ibex Grand Slam. The main difference between the subspecies is consists in the size and shape of the horns and the size and color of the body. You can read more info about the peculiarities of the ibex in the section of our website dedicated to the Spanish Ibex here.
