Ibex & Chamois

Our Ibex and Chamois hunting takes place in throughout the mountain systems of Europe (Austria, Slovenia, Croatia & Romania).

The Ibex (Capra.) and the Chamois (Rupicapra.) are the ballet dancers of the mountain cliff edges, passing up mountain slopes that look inaccessible, leaping from ledge to precipice, balancing on the tiniest of ridges - living their lives in alpine and sub-alpine meadows habitats above the timberline, wintering on steep slopes or flatter forested terrain where snow does not accumulate.

Hunting ibex and chamois requires a hunter to be in good physical condition, often stalking in from above, at altitudes of 400-1800 metres above sea level (they have been observed at altitudes above 3600m) - through high alpine scree for the Alpine ibex & chamois, through Mediterranean forest and karst topography, the favoured habitat of the Balkan chamois, or through forested terrains of the Carpathian Mountains for the large Carpathian chamois.

Alpine Ibex

The Alpine ibex (Capra ibex) also known as the Steinbock or Bouquetin, was once restricted only to the Italian and French Alps, until reintroductions at the turn of the 20th century into Switzerland. Today, there are increasing sustainable populations through the European Alpine regions of France to Slovenia.

Instantly recognisable in the European Alps, the Alpine Ibex is sexually dimorphic and bilaterally symmetrical, with the females being significantly smaller than the male, horn length up to 100 cm.

 The Kamnik–Savinja Alps ("Kamniške Alpe") mountain range of northern Slovenia.



 1st August to 31st December; rut: end-November to mid-December.

Alpine Chamois

The Alpine chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra rupicapra) are widely distributed in the central European Alps, with increasing sustainable populations from France to Slovenia. In the summer they tend to inhabit the high-altitude meadows above the treeline, during the winter months, they tend to migrate to lower altitude forests.


Distinguished by its white face and black stripes below the eyes, a white backside and black dorsal strip. Found throughout the European Alps.

 1st August to 31st December; rut (mating season): November to mid-December.

Balkan Chamois

The Balkan chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra balcanica) is larger and possibly a sub-species of the Alpine Chamois, it's coat is slightly browner than it's Alpine cousin. They are found in large numbers in the rugged sub-Mediterranean mountain scrub of the Adriatic coast.


Hunting is a magical experience with stunning views on the Dalmatian coast and Croatian islands.

 1st September to 31st January; rut (mating season): November to mid-December.

Carpathian Chamois

The Carpathian chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra carpatica) - is arguably a distinct chamois species being the largest chamois both in body mass and horn size. Widely distributed, in various populations, throughout the remote Carpathian Mountain range.
