In Austria, the presence of Central European fauna dominates; In the impressive Ötztaler Alps, located in the southwest of Tirol, we find the Alpine Ibex, the Chamois, and the Marmot, among others.
The Alpine Ibex is undoubtedly the protagonist of the game species in Austria. A stocky animal, darker in color, with a small beard and thicker and straighter horns than the rest of Ibex that we know, it lives in high mountains and moves agilely on steep terrain, usually moving under the tree line or below the snow line. This hunt in Austria, is one of the most recognized in Europe due to its relative scarcity, the difficulty of the terrain, and the quality of the experience.
The Ötztaler Alps are known for their abundant population of Alpine Ibex, Alpine Chamois, and Marmot. The hunting area is a medium-high alpine terrain with an elevation of between 1,500 and 3,000 meters of altitude where we can find many class I trophies, specimens with a minimum of 10 years that can be hunted between August 1 and 15 from December.
The combination of these three species, Ibex, chamois, and Alpine Marmot, is the perfect program to visit this idyllic country.
