Beceite Ibex – Iberian Mouflon
I just wanted to thank you again for a fantastic hunt and leave a review for you.
In early 2020 I was the winning bidder on a combination Beceite Ibex & Iberian Mouflon sheep hunt with Valeriano Belles of Ibex Hunt Spain. Unfortunately, due to covid, the hunt was postponed from December of 2020 to 2021, but Val worked very hard with the Spanish government to ensure that tag would be good for the following year. Finally in December of 2021 I was able to go on my hunt and Val did not disappoint. In the final hour of the first day I connected with a beautiful 8 year old gold medal class Mouflon. For the next day and a half we battled some inclement weather ranging from 30+ mph winds to blowing snow and rain. However late in the afternoon on day three, after passing on numerous gold medal Ibex (because my permit was for a bronze medal class) we found an Ibex that looked promising. We stalked to within 250 yards and Val confirmed he’s the one. With one well placed shot, my lifelong dream of an Ibex had come true. I had a beautiful 10-year-old Bronze medal Beceite Ibex in my hands.
Not only is Val and the game keepers he hunts with great guides, he is a wealth of knowledge, I got a daily history lesson as well. Val was born and raised in this territory, he told me stories of how his mom and dad met to the history of all the conflict that happened in these mountains hundreds and even thousands of years ago. I would highly recommend hunting with Valeriano and Ibex Hunt Spain. Already started planning my Gredos Ibex hunt in 2024. Tim Hoarle
