I have traveled to 3 regions of Spain in the last week... we have hunted HARD and I have had the best streak of luck I’ve maybe ever had. Good weather, no delays, great guides, and some good shooting have paid off to provide me not only with 3 different animals but also with many new friends, a few extra pounds on my waistline, and a new respect for the infinite depth of the history of Spain. 🇪🇸
We spotted a group of Ronda Ibex males from across a canyon and because it was very windy and they were eating in some shrubs I was able to stalk within 20 yds of this 10-11 year old Ronda! Bow range! I used my @kimberamerica Mt. Ascent in 300WSM topped with a #nikonsportoptics Monarch 7 scope and the new @federalpremium Edge TLR this whole week. Love it. 🇪🇸 The Ibex is a very old species. It is estimated that during the Pliocene era (7 million years ago), the caprinidae of central Asia arrived in Europe and it was around the Riss glacial stage when the Iberian form of the Capra genus appeared differentiated from the Ibex of central Europe. There are 4 sub species in Spain, and I’ll have to come back for the other two! I love it here. Thank you to @iberhunting for an amazing experience. ☝️☝️CLICK LINK IN BIO FOR MORE INFO☝️☝️☝️
