The peaks of these mountains can reach altitudes of 1800m. The sheep seldom rest in view, preferring to stick to the shade of the Pine trees in the midday sun. When they do graze they are often moving making catching them extremely challenging. Although there are good inroads to the hunting grounds, sportsmen or women can expect to walk considerably further than they would for Ibex, in our opinion this is one of Spain's most unique hunts. The warm and dry climate, good food and culture make this a very pleasurable hunt all season.
Due to our access to the Sierra Espuna, we anticipate very high success in this hunt, with 100% success so far. However there are very few Gold Standard Barbary sheep in Spain with only 14 being shot in the last 40 years, 11 of which were shot in our area.
