The best method of hunting Chamois anywhere in the world is to get above them. The hunt is conducted on foot using a method of spot and stalk. Despite the country that these goats reside, a high level of fitness is not required for this hunt. There is a passable road reaching the highest point in the mountain, allowing us to gain easy altitude at the beginning of the day.
The Pyrenean Chamois is endemic to the Pyrenean Mountains, running through France, Spain and Andorra. In France Pyrenean Chamois can be found in good numbers throughout the Pyrenees, from West to East. A medium sized chamois, his coloration on the bib is slightly different to that of other chamois, in that if forms a point rather than a rounded edge, and the coat tends to be a bit lighter. The biggest threat to Pyrenean Chamois is disease and in the past both France and Spain have suffered heavy losses in their Chamois populations due to disease. However the good news is that both populations are on the increase currently. Most Pyrenean Chamois shot are shot in France, so it is a highly desirable location in which to hunt.
