The hunt of this animal and its appeal in high mountain, makes it the jewel of the Pyrenean mountains being a dream hunting, the hard-to-access rocky habitat, the altitude and the inclement weather in high mountain make this game one of the most uncertain and suffered in any type of stalking. Chamois hunting is, for us, one of the most beautiful and rewarding hunts.
Characteristics of the Pyrenean chamois: Shoulder height 29-30 inches (74-76 cm). Weight 55-90 pounds (25-41 kg).
Our hunting areas

The hunting method will always be stalking the animal. We have easy access areas and areas for more experienced hunters. The hunting areas are private areas managed for years and with more than 74 000 acres (30,000 hectares) located at 2.5 hours from Barcelona Airport, three hours from Toulouse Airport and six hours from Madrid Airport.
The best dates to hunt an old Pyrenean Chamois, are during the rut, from mid-October to the end of November. It is then when the old chamois leave the more wooded areas and go in search of the females. Spring is also a suitable season for hunting this animal. He looks for the first fresh shoots, even going down to the mountain plantings, after the long winter in the summits.
Season: From 1st of October to 15th of May
