About the Balearean Boc
The Balearean Boc, also known as the Mallorcan wild goat, is the only huntable species on the island of Mallorca. The species was originally introduced to the island around 2000 B.C. by the Phoenicians to use as a renewable food source. The island of Mallorca is the only place in the world where the Balearean Boc can be hunted. Males weigh between 100 and 130 pounds and have horns that point backward and go into a gentle spiral. Their coats are a reddish brown with a black stripe that runs from their back down through their shoulders. These animals are skittish and will flee at the first sign of danger. They are known to run uphill and up cliffsides to avoid danger and attempt to escape. This makes them a prized and coveted trophy for hunters around the world.
You can expect your trophy to be a bronze medal goat scoring between SCI 50 to 54 inches. If you choose, you can upgrade to a silver medal that will score SCI 55 to 61 inches for $1,500 more. Gold medals are also available, and they will score SCI 61+ points and are a $2,500 upcharge over bronze.

- Visiting the city of Palma, the capital of the island. It is a small, cozy town that faces the Mediterranean. It is known for its Catherdral and Muslim Palace, and its old town district is one of the oldest in Europe. Wandering these medieval streets and seeing the history held within them is fascinating!
- The city of Soller is an isolated town on the North coast of the island known for its pure Mallorcan lifestyle. There is a train linking Palma and Soller, and the town's traditional cuisine of local fish and prawns are one of its biggest draws!
- Valldemossa is a small village located in the mountains and is completely built in stone. Located in the Tramuntana Mountain range, it is famous for being the home of Frederic Chopin during one of the periods of his life and is now home to an array of modern celebrities.
- Along all the coastlines there are sandy beaches and secret caves which are perfect for enjoying a secluded bath in the Mediterranean! The busy season on the island is summer, so the dates of this hunt should line up perfectly to ensure the island is not too crowded.
A Typical Day Hunting Balearean Boc
A typical day hunting Balearean Boc can change quite a bit depending on the weather and other factors, but it will usually start early in the morning. You and your guide will have a light breakfast and discuss the hunting strategy for the day. You’ll head out to the hunting grounds just as the sun is rising to get a good jump on the Boc. Once there, you and your guide will start covering the ground both on foot and by car looking for the perfect trophy. You’ll be using binoculars to spot the best animal, glassing up and down the cliff sides in search of the right Balorean Bok.
Once you and your guide agree on shooter goat, the stalk is on! You both will hike to get closer to him on foot. The goal is to get the right shooting angle combined with the shortest shooting distance. A close stalk is almost always the preferred method, as the mountain winds can easily throw your bullet off-course from a longer range, resulting in a wounded animal or even a total miss. Once you’re within a comfortable shooting distance, it’s time to set up in the shooting position most comfortable to you. From there, line up your sights, and take your shot! Your average shooting distance can be expected around 100-300 yards.
Trophy Care and Shipping
After your trophy is downed and located, it will be field dressed and packed out. Once out of the mountains and back at the lodge, the cape will be skinned and packed in salt. It will then be delivered to a licensed taxidermist within the week. If you will be mounting it there, the taxidermist will start mounting immediately. If you choose to have it mounted elsewhere, it will just go there for dip and pack before being sent out to the taxidermist of your choosing.
