About the Pyrenean Chamois:
The Pyrenean Chamois are found in the Pyrenean Mountains about 80-90 miles outside of Barcelona. They are a species of Capra that is only located in Spain and small parts of France. These animals are very agile and stick to the mountains and cliffsides. During the summer, they prefer altitudes above 6,000 feet, and during the winter altitudes around 3,000 feet. They use their agility to their advantage and tend to look downhill for threats. You can use this to your advantage by getting higher up above them.
The Pyrenean Chamois grows to about 80cm tall and sports horns that are hooked slightly backward. During the summer months, their coats are a ruddy-brown color but develop into a darker brown or black coat as the winter months approach. They browse for their food and prefer to graze on grass, nuts, and tree sprouts. The species almost went extinct in the 1940s due to reckless hunting for their leather, but they were protected and since then have made a full comeback that now includes around 50,000 individuals.
You can expect your trophy at this price point to be a bronze medal scoring between CIC 87 to 91.9 points. If you choose, you can upgrade to a silver medal that will score CIC 92 to 96.9 points for $1,000 more. Gold medals are also available, and they will score CIC from 97+ points and are a $2,000 upcharge over bronze.
About the Mouflon Sheep:
The mouflon sheep, originally native to the Caspian region of eastern Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Iran, were introduced to Spain at the end of the 19th century. These animals thrived here and quickly became renowned for their exciting hunting. They have incredible eyesight and are very leery of danger, providing for a great way to test your stalking abilities. These animals are also deeply rooted in history, as it is believed that all domesticated sheep are actually descendants of the mouflon. Their coats are reddish to dark brown in color and are accented with dark back stripes, black ventral areas, and light-colored saddle patches. Their fur is short, and the male's horns can curve nearly one whole rotation. Females are only sometimes horned. Rams can grow up to five feet long and weigh up to 120 pounds.
You can expect your trophy at this price point to be a bronze medal scoring between CIC 185 to 194.99 points. If you choose, you can upgrade to a silver medal that will score CIC 195 to 204.99 points for $1,000 more. Gold medals are also available, and they will score CIC over 205 points and are a $2,000 upcharge over bronze.

A Typical Day Hunting Chamois and Mouflon
Your typical day hunting will start early, usually before daybreak. You will wake up and enjoy a light breakfast with your guide, where you’ll discuss the hunting strategy for the day. As the sun is rising, you and your guide will leave your hotel to head out to the hunting area which is located in the nearby mountains. Since the mouflon and chamois inhabit the same area, you will be looking for both species at the same time. It is common to see over 50 of each species per day, so you should have plenty of animals to choose from. You and your guide will work to identify your trophy as they are active in the morning and moving from their feeding areas to where they will bed down in the heat of the day. For this, you can expect to be walking and driving a lot while searching for your shooter with binoculars.
Once you find your shooter, you and your guide will start your stalk. The stalk will be done on foot over some rocky and hilly terrain, so it's recommended that you are in the best shape you can be, although hunters in poor shape can be accommodated by this outfitter. Both the Pyrenean chamois and the mouflon sheep have excellent eyesight and they will put your stalking skills to the test! Once you are able to get within 100-300 yards and you have a good shot, you’ll be able to take your shot on your trophy. You’ll have to have good shooting skills, as these animals can be small and make long-range shots difficult even for experienced marksmen. The Pyrenean Chamois was the prized trophy of Swiss marksman since they make for such a difficult trophy to harvest! Once you pull the trigger, you’ll be participating in a generations-long honored and respected tradition, filling your spot in history as one of the best marksmen the world over!
Other Available Animals
It is possible to combine this hunt with another hunt for a free-range Red Stag as well. A Red Stag trophy fee is $3,000. The stag found in these parts of the mountains are big in body size, but their antlers are thinner and not as big as those in the flatlands where food is more abundant. Therefore, a medal class stag cannot be guaranteed.
Trophy Care and Shipping
Once you have taken your shot and have taken trophy pictures with your animal, it will be dressed and trucked out of the concession. From there, it will be skinned and salted. After the hunt ends, all your trophies will go together to a local licensed Spanish taxidermist. You will have the option of dip and pack to have the animals shipped to a taxidermist of your choice or to let the taxidermist take care of the mounting themselves.
