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, which gives the name to this subspecies of the mountain goat. 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 compared with the Hunting Reserve of Gredos. The Reserve almost covers the area called Macizo Central in Sierra de Gredos, in the south of the province of Ávila.
Gredos Ibex 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.
