Undeterred, we resolved to press on, devising a plan B to enhance our chances of a successful southeastern ibex hunt.
Plan B worked; we saw a good Southeastern ibex with a group of females, Yet, our attempts to approach stealthily were thwarted as the females detected our presence, preventing us from reaching the prized ibex.
After this attempt, we saw another great ibex. We approached and were less than 100 meters away, fully prepared, but the ibex was on the skyline, and we decided to wait, unfortunately, the animal went the other way and disappeared.
Despite the morning’s streak of bad luck, we decided to take a break and enjoy a meal near the initial location where we had identified the first ibex. Little did we know that our fortunes were about to change.
