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 most common capra the World over needs little introduction. The Alpine Chamois, One of the larger of the 10 subspecies of this little goat in fact records the longest horns. His coat is generally darker, although colour variations can occur in each subspecies. Although Austria is the heart of Alpine Chamois with an estimated 130,000 animals, France comes in a close second with roughly 100,000 individuals. As France is also home to another 2 classified and arguably one more subspecies, and home to a minimum of 150,000 chamois; we feel that France is the home of the Chamois hunter in Western Europe
