This Spanish ibex grand slam translates into: 4 years, 4 trips, 4 Spanish ibex. A mixture of feelings, between eagerness, struggle, disappointment, excitement and satisfaction. Sometimes all hope is lost and in the next minute the opportunity rises out of nowhere. As we always say, when hunting you feel unlucky until the moment in which you feel extremely lucky. Because this is what free range mountain hunting is. And when you come to Spain to hunt for the Spanish Ibex Grand Slam you are to expect all this, besides all the added value that Spain itself gives to your trip: a place of culture, historical heritage and an enviable cuisine.
We met Robert and Jan Zaiglin for the first time in February 2012 at one of our hunting shows in the US. That day marks the beginning of a wonderful friendship between Bob, Jan and Caza Hispanica. He had no idea he was then taking the first step into this lifetime experience which is hunting for the Spanish Ibex Grand Slam in 4 different trips.
Bob is a certified wildlife biologist from Texas. A true conservationist and a recognized strategists in matters related to successful game management. He is also known for his unique and professional ability to capture wildlife images.
