Gredos Ibex for Groups Hunting Program

The Spanish Ibex (Capra pyrenaica) is one of the bovine species of the Capra genus in Europe. There were four subspecies of this genus found in Spain, but two of them have recently become extinct.

The Capra Pyrenaica Victoriae is one of these four subspecies and is indigenous to several mountain ranges in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula. Its largest population is found in la Sierra de Gredos, between the provinces of Cáceres and Ávila.

It is characterized by its dark coat and, along with the Ibex of Beceite-Tortosa, has the largest antlers. Its horns are big and ringed, with a rugged surface, and shaped like a lyre. The growth of these horns is proportional to the age of the animal, adding one ring each year. The female goats have small, straighter horns. The males have an average weight of 90 kg and the females over 40 kg.

Description of the Hunt

Gredos Spanish Ibex is famous for being the biggest of the four different Spanish ibexes. In the Hunting Reserve of Gredos, the best hunting area for this specie, you will enjoy the beautiful mountains of the center Spain and also this amazing stalking hunt in an area plenty of very good trophies.

The hunting season in the South Side of Gredos is from 1st October to 31st December and from 15th January to 30th April.

In the North Side of Gredos the hunting season is from 15th September to 15th December and from 15th January to 15th June.

Your hunting trip will start with your arrival to Madrid airport (Aeropuerto Adolfo Suárez) where our Iberhunting staff will meet you and will accompany you during the coming days taking care for a successful hunting experience.  After the clearance documents for bringing your riffle, you will be transfered to the hotel close to the hunting area and having dinner in the restaurant of the hotel.

 

This hunt, just like other stalking of these species, begins in the early hours of the morning after a good breakfast. It is a mountain hunt in which the hunter and guides search, with the aid of binoculars and monocular, for a suitable trophy according to the clients demands. The stalking should then be carried out in complete silence, with attention being paid to the recommendations of the guide. This is a specie with a very sharp sense of smell, sight and hearing, an adversary which will contribute to the hunt, together with the incomparable landscape common to the area, the necessary ingredients to make the day an unforgettable hunting experience.

When hunting by stalking shooting distances may be in the range of 150 – 250 meters in the South Side of Gredos and 100 – 200 meters in the North Side. Recommended calibres for this hunt are 300 WM, 338 WM and 270 Watherby. In most cases you will have time to get a confortable rest for shooting, but sometimes you must be able to manage quicker shots.

Hunting Area

It is in this long mountain range where we can find a lot of different areas for hunting the Gredos Ibex, but any place can be comparated with the Hunting Reserve of Gredos. The Reserve almost covers the called Macizo Central  in Sierra de Gredos, on the south of the province of  Ávila (1.30h driving from Madrid). This area holds a very high density of ibex and very good to outstanding size of trophies. The hunts in Gredos are very successful and we permanently scored on a 100% success.

In the Hunting Reserve of Gredos there are two different areas: North Side and South Side.

  • North side: in this area the hunting ground is flatter and easily accessible. There is a large population of ibexes and very high quality of trophies. We recommend this area for hunter with really bad physical conditions, bow hunters or people looking for gold medal trophies more than 245 points.
  • South side: it is a mountainous area but very accessible with normal physical conditions. In this area there is also a big population of ibex. We use to hunt by stalking in this area with our customers with a result of 100% successful hunts.
Hunting Zone

In the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, toward the West, is the Central System, a long mountain range, formed by a series of mountains, among which we find la Sierra de Gredos, located between the provinces of Ávila, Cáceres, Madrid, and Toledo, and which gives the name to this subspecie of mountain goat.

La Sierra de Gredos presents a spectacular montage of lakes, cirques, gorges, ranges, cliffs, crags, and moraine deposits, with the Almanzor peak, at 2,592m being the highest point in the whole mountain range.

And although the relief transforms Gredos into a beautiful and spectacular mountain, from the biological perspective, its habitat provides us with one of the most interesting spaces in all of Western Europe.

The vegetation in the zone varies according to the altitude, and so it is possible to find a landscape of oak, chestnut, alder, ash, birch, poplar, willow, and Pyrenean oak, with the latter being replaced in various zones by the pine.

The main animal species, along with the Spanish Ibex, are the roe deer (capreolus capreolus), red-legged partridge (alectoris rufa), royal eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), imperial Eagle (Aquila adalberti), honey buzzard (permis apivorus), black vulture (aegypius monachus), and griffon vulture (gyps fulvus).

Accommodation & Gastronomy

If you choose to hunt in North Side of Gredos, then you will stayed in Hotel El Milano Real – www.elmilanoreal.com

If you hunt in the South Side area, then you will be accommodated in Hotel Balcón de la Vera – www.elbalcondelavera.com

In the Gredos zone, we can find “Inns,” small boutique hotels with a welcoming ambiance and wonderful natural surroundings, suitable for discovering the gastronomy of the area.

accomodation at sierra de gredos

Exploring gastronomy in Castilla y León means finding oneself in the epicentre of roast suckling lamb, suckling pig, and kid meat. It means having fresh beef and discovering the increased use of codfish and trout in recipes. It means discovering tradition and taste in the use of basic raw materials and farm produce. It means indulging in the sublime sweets made traditionally in old monasteries and convents, pastries which are over 300 years old. It means enjoying wine country with a rich tradition, which today makes high-end wines, all along the río Duero.

A gastronomy that is a true reflection of its geography and its climate.

Strong, delicious, and natural.

Other Activities in Madrid

Just two hours away from the hunting zone is Madrid, the capital of Spain. It is a cosmopolitan city that combines the most modern infrastructure with a vast cultural and artistic heritage, the legacy of centuries of passionate history.

Art and culture hold a prominent place in Madrid. The capital has 73 museums that cover all of human knowledge. Of note are el Museo del Prado, one of the largest art collections in the world; el Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, with over 800 paintings, sculptures, tapestries representing from primitive Flemish artists to the vanguard movements. And el Centro Nacional de Arte Reina Sofía, dedicated to Spanish contemporary art, with the works of Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, and Juan Gris, among others.

Near to the Plaza Mayor is what is known as the “aristocratic centre,” where the Palacio Real shines, a monumental construction of the XVII century, a blend of baroque and classicism. Beside it are la Plaza de Oriente, el teatro de la Ópera, and the modern Almudena Cathedral, consecrated in 1993 by Pope John Paul II. La Puerta del Sol, surrounded by a varied and select commercial zone and el “Paseo del Arte,” so called because of its incomparable museums, palaces, and gardens, complete this monumental collection, where the Banco de España building, el Palacio de las Telecomunicaciones [Post Office Headquarters], and the fountains of la Cibeles and Neptuno shine with their own light.

Thank your for another nice Gredos Ibex hunting experience. A big bronze medal Ibex.

This time it only lasted half a day before shooting my Ibex. Hunting is hunting but this time it was fast.

Thank you for a nice stay and hospitality. See you again.
