April is the best month of the year to hunt Beceite Ibex and Roe deer in Spain. The hunting season of the Beceite Ibex begins in November and it lasts until the end of May, but the hunting season for the Roe deer begins at the beginning of April until the end of September. As we already mentioned in one of our articles dedicated exclusively to the hunt of the Roe deer, the animal is not easy to hunt because they are very skittish. The only time of the year they are more vulnerable is during the last 2 weeks of April and the first week in May as they feed outside of the forest in the terraces where the new grains begin to sprout in Spring.Read more

If you are familiar to European hunting and you have visited the trophy room of some European hunters you have definitely seen that the Roe buck is found in most on most of the European trophy walls. This article is going to talk about this precious and elegant trophy and about the best methods of hunting the European Roe deer in Spain.
The peculiarities of the European Roe deer
The European Roe deer, also know as the Roe Buck is relatively small compared to the other types of deer in Europe, like Red deer (Red Stag) or Fallow deer. But the Roe deer is different not only because of its size but also because of his peculiarities. Starting with the rut season, a male roe deer will only follow one doe during the rut season. Skittish, small and very attentive to his surroundings, the roe deer always follows the same habits: he feeds in the same places, at the same time every day.

Normally before a hunter and his observers come to Spain we have already settled the general itinerary with them. But if you have ever been on a hunting trip you know that hunting is not a precise science and we depend totally on the weather conditions: precipitations, temperature, wind, fog etc. On the other hand we also depend on the “mood” of the animals. Sometimes they are not where they usually hang out and sometimes you bump into them in the least expected areas. Because, you already know: “That´s hunting!”
