December 2016, our annual trip to Cazorla. Cazorla a very beautiful part of highland Spain. Hunting here is all sort of hunting, long range shooting if you’re used to, high mountain and deep valley climbing if you want. Lot of animals -Mouflon, Red deer, Fallow deer and Wild boars.
And in the evening the best of Spanish gastronomy. Hunting with Iberhunting highly recommended!
Lorca and it’s Aoudad sheep is a must! Nice and difficult animal to hunt. Very well camouflaged and quick to run. This time it was female hunt. Local guides and Antonio from Iberhunting made it possible.
Thanks for another good hunting trip!
It was truly a pleasure to meet both of you. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish as a result of your diligence and attention to detail.
Thank you both for making this a trip we will never forget.
Hello Antonio and Mercedes, My experience at your Ibex Hunting destinations exceeded all of my highest expectations.
You are providing a destination hunting experience with all the amenities of an upscale hotel accomodation combined with hunting all Spanish Ibex (for me untill now: Cazorla, Gredos and Beceite), which makes a perfect setting to entertain clients and friends.
The accommodations, the out-of-this-world food and wine, your attention to detail, the rangers work, the variety of habitat which produced an abundance of exceptional animals all come together for the perfect hunting experience.
Thank you for the wonderful time. I look forward to seeing you again.
From: Etienne Schreurs( Belgium) roe deer, red deer and wild boar hunter who found a new and wonderfull experience in Spain
I am looking at the pictures of a very success full hunt in Spain . When you go with IBERHUNTING you will be in the best hands and everything will be taken care of in the best possible way.
Therefore the greatest thanks to Mercedes and Antonio for the experience – they did it for the fourth time and after thirty + years of travelling on hunting trips, I will put them in top three as agents.
I will look forward to hunt with Antonio again. I got my GRAND SLAM so we have to find something else to do.
I’ve on my way to do Ibex grand slam in Spain. February 2017 was the time for Beceite. In the region of Terragona. A very special hunt. Tough and steep mountains.
Got my beautiful Beceite. And in the evenings visiting local lovely restaurants and looking at the blue ocean. Mountains and coast so close, nice combo!
Our family – Marie, Lola, Esben, Johann and myself had a wonderful hunting experience in Sierra Nevada. Antonio is the perfect host and guide and he “brands” your company extremely well.
Having hunted extensively during the past 10 years on 4 continents, I rank my recent Ronda ibex hunt with Antonio firmly amongst my top 3 hunts.
Iberhunting delivers excellence in all key parameters – guiding, lodging, logistics and trophy quality, qualifying itself as a true top-tier outfitter. Simply just a fantastic hunt that I would encourage anyone to experience.
Personal references are welcome by telephone request (+45) 27150764.
One of my best trips yet. Perfect for one and perfect for two.
If you are looking for the perfect place to take your better half hunting. I will particularly recommend this place and Iberhunting as organizer. The hunting is located in the national park and when back at the beautiful valley hotel, your host, the other hunting guests and various spa’s and the Michelin star rated kitchen awaits you.
Every detail is very well organized and guided. All the way from booking to leaving.
The terrain can be easy slow up & downhill walking or hard work and climbing, if that is what you prefer. In both cases the hunting is perfect. I know, cause we did both.
Hunting is spot and stalk, in the most magnificent mountains, in a perfect for walking temperature/climate. We saw lot and lots of game, from fallow deer, red deer to Ibex and vultures. Lots…!!
I was the only gun carrying hunter on our trip, but my fiancé actively hunted as well, by spotting and stalking just like the guide and I. We got a nice representative Ibex, a very nice selective “einwachser” Mouflon and two females. The national park is relying on hunters for completing the eco circle as toppredators, which makes the hunting a lot more than just getting a trophy and having a good time.
I love this place and intend to go back there soon.
Tuff hunt compounded by a persistent back/leg injury, but the preacher talked me thru it, Thanks Matthew Guedes JourneyHunts.com About a 14 km trek up and down to 1900 meters! 375 yd heart shot in heavy winds?!? Kudos to Antonio owner at Iberhunting in Spain.
What a wonderful location to base camp out of. Would love to be there during season to enjoy all the spa facilities. Lolo actually opened up Spa Coto del Valle in Cazorla, Spain just for us! Food was amazing, way beyond great!
Presentation was artistic, variety was extensive, and even personal preferences and needs were handled graciously and beyond expectation! Truly a hunt that you could take the significant other along on with no disappointments, and reasonably priced for non-hunter also! And on the important side of the trip, the hunting was more than expected. Great variety of game seen every day, stags, mouflon, fallow, besides the Ibex like pictured above. And the scenery was amazing. Looking down over old castles and quaint Spanish towns perched on the edge of the steep mountains and cliffs with amazingly well maintained roads and trails all within the expanse of a national forest!
Antonio spared no expense or personal effort to make everything perfect. He even took us on my last day of Ibex hunting to a personal honey hole, that allow me to make a great shot on a nice Sierra Nevada Ibex. He and our ranger guide Nito, even insisted on carrying my gear and trophy back down, as they knew my leg was hurting badly by then. After a tuff climb to the top and a careful sneak into position above the herd, down was definitely a harder effort!
I was glad for the assistance and encouragement from my boss and personal friend; “preacher”Matt Guedes! And thanks for the heart felt personal congratulations from ranger Nito (that came across passionately even before someone translated for us) and the FB compliment from Antonio also: Iberhunting – you make it happen Ron you are a real hunter you die before you give up Super !!! So as always – Go there! @Iberhunting with @journeyhunts
Everything was perfect about this hunting adventure with Iber Hunting. The accommodation and the service in each location was on top of the line in fact exceeded my expectations. I met Antonio through my friend Matt Guedes of journeyhunts.com with no doubts Antonio is the best organizer he made our 14 days traveling between 6 different locations all over Spain so easy and joyful and of course helped me accomplish exactly what I came for. 14 days made me know them very well and felt like one family towards the end of this journey.
This is my first with him but for sure he’ll be my source all over Europe for any hunting adventure. Thank you once again for the amazing experience Antonio!
Back again a beautiful week of hunting with IBERHUNTING. This was the third huntingtrip for me with Iberhunting and all three were above expectation. Aswell for the accomidation,the food, the hunting as for the general take care.
I onely can highly recommendant IBERHUNTING when you wisch to hunt in Spain without any conserns or problems. Look forwards for the next trips.
Thanks Mercedes and Antonio.
We were the first Finns that hunted with Iberhunting. So it was not a surprise that we had some worries before the trip but we more or less right in the beginning realized that it was not needed! We had a trip of the life time! We have been hunting in different places during the years and this trip was one of the best ones or even the best! Hunting in the mountains of Spain was exceeding all the hopes and it was awesome to end the experience to Monteria. Once more thank You Mercedes and Antonio about wonderful memories.

Dear Mercedes and Antonio
Another hunt with Antonio, and this time with Christian as local hunting guide in the search for Beceite, in the beautiful mountains near Rossell, the weather was after November conditions hot and there was fine presence of the female ibex, but the male was not so accessible the first day and the second day was spent on some observation and hiking in the mountains, the end of the day we managed to get close to a group of 4 goats which of the two was representative and two trophy ibex, after an exciting hunt I succeeded by take a nice example of Beceite Ibex.
Once again thanks to Mercedes and Antonio, with many fantastic experiences in the beautiful Spanish mountains, supplemented with good food and beautiful hotels that reflect the areas we have visited to take down my Spanish Grand Slam at the 4 ibex.
Best personal regards. Allan.
Mercedes and Antonio – thank you for the perfect organised and successful hunt in Sierra Nevada. We were in Spain for the first time, but for sure not for the last. We have found Iberhunting as a very reliable company, which can be highly recommended.
Best regards, Anna and Marcin
It was my greatest hunting ever, together with Antonio, hunting the Sierra Nevada Ibex. The hunt was perfect and it was my first hunt outside Denmark.
After 2 hour with the scoop looking at the beautyful nature and after the right size of Ibex, we found him nearly 500 meters from us at the other side of the mountain. 2.5 hour later he was 207 meter from me, and with a perfect shot he was down. I have dedicated my Ibex to a good friend of me, there was kill in a accident 2 weeks before my hunt.
My best recommendation to Antonio and he’s team.
I have had the privilege of hunting all around the globe. In over 20 years of hunting guided hunts I have not found anybody as professional, complete, well organized, and one who hunts as well as Antonio and Mercedes do.
Everything from the accommodations to the meals to the actual hunt were done in a first class manor. Iber Hunting will be the European and Middle East hunt choice for Journey Hunts and our clients.
Dear Mercedes and Antonio,
Once again we decided to go to Spain for hunting with IBER-HUNTING. This time is was for Beceite Ibex, which was the last one I lacked to get the Spanish Ibex Grand Slam.
As usual we had brought along golf equipment, since we did not expect to spend more than one day, perhaps two to get the Ibex…
Mercedes and Antonio had arranged that we were staying in a nice golf resort, so we could play golf when the hunt was over. A nice way to combine the interests of the family ;-).
As Antonio and the ranger said the first day – two hours then it is over!!! We just need to drive up into the mountains, locate the animal herd and shoot… But it turned out, however, that the hunt was not quite as easy as expected.
It took three long and intense hunting days in the mountains before I got my Ibex. Last days at the very last hour we managed to spot a bronze medal ibex out at 350 meters… I took the shot and succeeded. What a great experience ;-).
Because of the many long hunting days, there was not much time for golf, so Antonio offered, the last two days, to drive back to the hotel at lunchtime to pick up Jill who had played golf in the morning. What other PH would do that to satisfy the non-hunting part of the family… We are very grateful for that, Antonio…
Thanks for yet another wonderful holiday and unforgettable hunting experience in Spain. And thanks for the fine “spanish Ibex Grand slam” present you brought me. It is appreciated and looks great in our living room.
We will definitely come back 😉 See you.
Thanks for the Best hunting Ever. I must say that mountain hunting is some of the hardest hunting. Iberhunting is top of World hunting.
See you next time.
The food was by far the best I have ever had on any hunting. The Rangers were absolutely fantastic, Antonio definitely goes out of hi way to provide a first class hunt from start to finished.
No, need to bring your rifle, Antonio has very high – end rifles availabel.
I recomend this hunt.
I had the very good fortune to come across Iberhunting when looking for an Ibex hunting opportunity in Spain. I say good fortune because there is always an element of risk when booking a hunt, and you never really know what to expect. You rely on word of mouth or reviews you read.
Well, I found a gem, so if you are weighing up options and comparing different outfitters, I can honestly say that you should probably stop here. I cannot imagine that your hunting experience would be better with anybody else. From initial contact, help with anything and everything regarding planning, transport (even, as in my case, when you arrange your own) and regulations is done with down to earth friendliness that epitomises Spain and how the hunting community should interact. This made getting there and arranging everything a breeze. Once ‘on site’, the experience was even better. In my case, we were hunting Ibex in the Gredos mountain reserve – we met Antonio from Iberhunting at the organized accommodation which was a perfect blend of local charm and cuisine, ideal location and hunter-friendliness…everything went smoothly and the whole feeling was one of warm welcome. Antonio was a perfect host who has obviously established good relationships with the hotel(s) he uses, and provided entertaining stories as well as pertinent advice for the current hunt as well as overall hunting opportunities in Spain and elsewhere. I got the sense that he is interested in building and maintaining a good reputation based on delivery of a good service at a reasonable price that will encourage hunters to return, as opposed to just ‘selling a hunt’ for short-term profit.
The hunt itself was outstanding. All hunting takes place in the reserve (which, from what I understand, is the case for all Iberhunting hunts) so you are assured that the quality, quantity and sustainability of animals is actively managed. This makes a big difference unless a) you do not care about environmental issues and b) you are willing to take the big risk of arranging a hunt in areas that are shot out or with very marginal populations. Because it is a reserve, your guides are reserve Rangers who know the mountains and animals very well: They know exactly what you are after in terms of trophy size and are extremely knowledgeable. In fact, they are scarily capable of estimating trophy size very accurately at distances way beyond shooting range! After careful scoping, walking/climbing and finally stalking a viable Ibex and getting into position for a shot, the guides are extremely helpful and take control without ‘taking over’. Once down, the trophy was properly tagged and well cared for in preparation for the taxidermist. There was no pressure for handling the trophy – the choice is yours. I chose to have the trophy mounted in Spain by the taxidermist that Antonio deals with – I have yet to get it, but have no doubt that I will like the end result.
All-in-all, a very pleasurable trip and excellent hunting experience with an outfit I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone!
My name is Daniel, I’m a Spanish hunter who, with some friends, we have been hunting with IberHunting and Mistral for the Mid-Asian Ibex in Kazakhstan (Dshungarian Alatau area) from 30th July to 10th August 2013. The hunt was very well organised from pick up and assistance at the airport, transportation to the base camp, throughout all the hunt and back to the airport.
The hunt began early in the morning from the base camp, where the accommodation, overall atmosphere and cuisine were excellent with plenty of explanations about the hunt. After a long journey on horseback and walking , we reached the top of the mountains, where we placed our fly camp and started spooting for the ibex.
The game itself takes place at around 3000 meters, in pretty steep mountains with quite difficult approach in some cases, so the hunter must be in GOOD physical conditions to do this hunt. The hunting team is very professional and always willing to help you and the population of good trophy ibex is really high in that specific area. Under normal weather conditions 2-3 hunting days is well enough to harvest your trophy.
I took my “monster” Ibex at 330 meters in the evening of the first hunting day and it was surprisingly large and thick. After a long and hard horse/walk trip of about 100 km, during three real hunting days, we were back to the “high camp” and most of my colleagues were back on the same day or a day after. All of us we have harvest a really nice trophy, and one off us get two massive ibex in the same day.
Special thanks to Tony Ulmer for leading me during the Hunt and to Antonio for their paperwork and the entusiam preparing all the game ….
I would highly recommend that hunt with Antonio ( IberHunting ) and his team, the experience has been unforgettable, mountains are hard and highly demanding, but all in accordance with agreed. Thank you very much for the Hunt you have been prepared for my.
We definitely had a wonderful time.
You and Antonio take care of every detail, which makes the experience extra special. We really appreciated how Antonio made things so enjoyable by having such good relationships with the game rangers and small restaurants in the different areas. We think you have developed an excellent hunting program, which anyone would appreciate. The touring, food, accommodations and hunt were exceptional.
We really look forward to hunting with you again.
in my memories I still come back to the beautiful nature, beautiful ancient cities and unforgettable hunting experiences. Equally amazingwas the culinary experience. You’re an excellent hunter as well as excellent gourmet. Thank you again.
I wanted to thank you and Antonio once again for the excellent organization. Gökmen’s specifically asked me to tell you that it was a pleasure hunting with you.
Thank you Antonio for the very nice hunting expirience in the Ronda Mountains … sucsessfull hunt for ibex , very good organisation , delicious food und bev. !!! I think that all of the 6 come next january back to hunt a Beceite Ibex !!! Antonio you are the gratest…
