Bezoar Ibex (Capra Aegagrus Aegagrus) Hunt (1-2hunters)

 

Bezoar Ibex is the most beautiful and trophy worthy animal amongst the wild goats. The Bezoar Ibex has nearly white colour fur with black colour stripes falling from its shoulders, symmetrical horns and a long black beard. It can weigh up to 120kg and is the most spectacular amongst the Ibex species. It is the dream of all highland hunters.

 

With our approach TROFE Hunting Safaris can virtually guarantee 100% that our guests can return home with a bezoar trophy, by assessing the most suitable rangeland to meet the capability and physical condition of each individual guest. There are suitable bezoars to hunt for hunters of every age and condition. There are even suitable bezoar hunts for hunters over the age of 70. The approximate size of the trophies varies from 100cm up to 140cm. The size of animals hunted during the 2012 season have been recorded at between 106 and132cm. TROFE Hunting Safaris are so confident that you will bag a trophy that we offer a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE or to give you a free hunting experience again during the same season if you do not able to shoot at the hunt due to lack of opportunity! This naturally excludes conditions beyond our control such as bad weather (fog, rain, snow storm). Please note that there is a limitation that each guest can only hunt ONE Ibex.

 

One week before our guests arrive, our guides will camp in the mountains and start observation and tracking. This will ensure that the guest will not lose time on arrival and will be taken immediately to the most intensive hunting area. We will accommodate you in the nearest hotels to the hunting area.
