With a powerful, cold wind blowing at about five-thousand feet we were lucky to spot two rams separated from the herd, feeding on a lower altitude. We began the stalk, at the beginning continuing with animal paths and then jumping up giant granite boulders.Read more

We are often asked about the CIC and SCI scoring systems for the Spanish ibex and more than once we realize that there is not enough info provided on them, and more importantly, this information is not in the same place.
Every time a hunter or huntress plans a hunting trip to Spain for the Spanish Ibex, at one particular moment they will be asked if they want to hunt a representative animal or they want to harvest a medal class Spanish Ibex. And according to the scoring of the animal, this person will have to pay the extra points of their animals.
This article will explain the scoring systems and measurements for the 4 different species of the Spanish ibex.
