Iberian Red Deer and Beceite ibex

Iberian Red deer and beceite ibex “My wife, and I hunted with Val for Iberian Stag and Beciete Ibex in December 2021/January 2022.  We purchased the trip via the Dallas Safari Club show.  Val guided us through the licensing process before the trip.  Travel to Spain was a breeze.  Before we met Val, we stayed a day and a night in Madrid – a beautiful city.  We then took the train to Valencia, another easy process, where Val picked us up at the train station and we drove into the Castellon region for the Ibex hunt.  What a beautiful part of the country – stunning landscape, ancient villages perched in the mountains – we saw things that there’s no way a ‘typical’ tourist would have a chance to see.  The people of Spain are delightful.  They are respectful, kind, and good-natured.  We did not have a single negative experience with the people during our entire 10-day trip.  After a couple of action-packed days hunting Ibex, we were successful.  There we many animals to choose from…but make no mistake…this is “hunting”, not “shooting”,  in some very challenging terrain.  The Ibex was taken with Val’s rifle at a little over 300 yards – my longest shot on an animal.  It was nice to be able to use Val’s rifle rather than travelling with our own.  With the Ibex tag filled, we went to another region of the country where we had an equally fun time harvesting a beautiful red stag.  The accommodations arranged by Val were very nice and our hosts were gracious and friendly.  Lori and I extended our stay in Spain to travel to Barcelona and then back to Madrid.  We didn’t rent a car, we primarily travelled by train and taxi, and walked a lot.  The Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona is the most beautiful building we have ever been in – go see it! The parks and museums in Madrid are amazing.  The food and wine in Spain is exceptional…and a great value compared to at home in Texas.  Overall, we had a great experience and highly recommend Val and Ibex Hunt Spain.  If you have questions, you are welcome to get our email address from Val and we’ll be glad to try to answer them for you.  Happy hunting!
