In southern Spain you can hunt the Sierra Nevada ibex and the somewhat smaller Ronda ibex. Both of these sub-species are smaller than the Gredos and Beceite ibex, but this does not mean that the hunt is any less exciting. Their coats are lighter in colour than their relatives to the north, where, especially the ibex in the Gredos mountains have a tendency to get very dark as they get older. The horns are strong, and also beautifully lyre-shaped. Typically they reach a length of between 55 - 70cm. Here the hunt also takes place in really beautiful surroundings, in a mountain landscape at an altitude between 1,000 - 2,000m.
The hunting season for these two sub-species is October - May. The best hunting occurs in October, November and December.
