Premium Program from 15th October to 28th February 2019*

This special program for groups will bring you to the Sierra de los Filabres in the province of Almería (Andalusia). In this incredible mountains we can find two of the most representative Spanish species: the Sierra Nevada (Southeastern Ibex) and the Spanish Redstag. To stalk both animals in these mountains is an unforgettable experience!
Southeastern Ibex – Sierra Nevada Ibex
Sierra Nevada is a mountainous massif belonging to the Baetic mountain range, more specifically the Peni-betico range. The southeaster ibex or Sierra Nevada ibex can be found all over the Eastern side of Andalusia in the provinces of Granada, Almeria and Jaen.
The males have thick, rough, knotty horns, and are normally in the shape of semicircle curving backwards. In contrast to deer, they do not shed them annually, but keep them throughout their entire lives. The age of the animals can be measured by the rings of annual growth. Capra Pyrenaica is an animal with great sexual dimorphism. As with the majority of mammals, this means there are ample differences between the mor-phology of the male goat and the female goat. They tend to divide into groups of sexes which can contain over 30 individuals: the males in one group and the females and youngs in another.
They move easily around rocky walls of incredible verticality, thans to the peculiarity of their hooves, whose internal surface in non-slip. Even when they are sedentary, in Winter they carry out prolonged displace-ments in search of refuge and shelter, climbing down to lower areas.
Spanish Mountain Redstag
The red deer (Cervus elaphus) is one of the largest deer species.
We hunt the redstag by stalking in high mountains in the south of Spain, provinces of Almería, Jaén or Granada. To hunt this animal by stalking method in the mountain is one of the best hunting opportunities.
