CAUCASUS

Earlier this month, I traveled back to the Caucasus Mountains, the same mountain range I was in last spring when I shot a Dagestan Tur with my bow.  On my last trip, I was on the Eastern side of the mountains in Azerbaijan; however, this time I was after Kuban Tur in the Western Caucasus …

ALPS

Bowhunting chamois must be one of my all-time favorites. Many people don’t feel attracted by this unique animal since they don’t have a very spectacular trophy. Far from that, when it becomes to their hunting, is one of the most fascinating things you can challenge. My favorite part is the terrain they live on, it …

BACKPACKING FOR ISARD

“Backpacking” is the term used in English for the hunts where you spend more than a day hunting living only from what you can carry in your backpack, from the sleeping system to food and others, without any type of vehicle assistance. Definitely one of the purest ways of hunting, where you are completely autonomous …

KAZAKHSTAN

Last year, my father and I were looking for a hunt that we could go on together, and after some research settled on a Mid-Asian ibex hunt in Kazakhstan. Having previously hunted ibex in Kyrgyzstan, on this trip we decided to hunt in the Tian Shan Mountains of Kazakhstan. Working with our hunting agent, Jordi …

TUR

I have grown up surrounded by mountain hunters. I don’t know the kind of bedtime stories other kids had, but mine were always about hunting trips. The Caucasus and the Tur have always been my favorite ones, there was something special in hearing every hunter describing always that place as hell. I have been dreaming …

PICOS DE EUROPA

This may we went back to Picos de Europa. Last year we tried hard for three days to get a chamois with the bow there but we couldn’t make it. We have been training for months to try to make a difference this time. I was surprised how bad the area has been hit by …

Mountain Stags

Last year hunting this area and probably this week was one of the last days heading out there. I grew up here and this has been my school, learning all that I know now. A complicated place to hunt, low density and tough terrain, but as beautiful as it can be.   This was my …

SPRING BUCKS

It is hard to describe how much I was needing to get out after roe bucks!!!. Jagd & Hund (Germany), British Shooting Show (UK), Die Hohe Jagd (Austria), IWA (Germany), Cinegetica (Spain), Salon de Chasse Rambouillet (France), International Bowhunting Seminar (Belgium)… It has been a couple of months with a lot of traveling around Europe, …

GREDOS

Last year during the peak of the rut a friend of mine and well known bowhunter from the USA, Bob Frome, told me that he was coming to hunt ibex in Spain. He was heading to the northern part of the Gredos National Reserve, probably the best area in the whole Spain to shoot old …

ROAR

The roar is one of the most amazing times of the year. It is nice to be back home in Spain to experience it again. It was mid september and the stags were already getting excited in the southern part of Spain. In this case I travelled to Acornland Hunts and had a once in …

SARRIOS

Sarrio, thats how we refer to the Pyrenean Chamois in the Aragon area of Spain, for sure one of my dad´s favorite animals. We spent some quality family time in the mountains looking for a late season buck. Not an easy task since after the rut has conclude, activity was little and days are short. …

MAURITIUS

With beautiful sandy beaches, the Island of Mauritius has also very interesting hunting opportunities. We discovered the fascinating world of spot and stalking for rusa deer with the bow in the rainforest of Mauritius. A paradise that makes a perfect combination between hunting and holidays with the family. Le Chasseur Mauricien took care of everything, …

Rupicapra

Being back in the pyrenees its always amazing, specially if I am accompanying my dad. It is late in the season, and the rut it at its peak. Chamois behavior this time of the year its crazy. I have never seen animals run so much in such a complicated terrain. I wish I could do …

NAMIBIA

Our first stop on our honeymoon was Namibia, one of those African countries that were in my mind since I was a kid, and that we were about to discover in a really authentic way, combining some great time doing activities with my wife, but also with some pure bowhunting. I wanted to show my …

UGANDA

After hunting various regions of Africa, Uganda was next on our list. This small country, located between the Congo Republic, Sudan, Kenya and Tanzania, is rich in habitat and possesses a healthy population of wild game. These characteristics, combined with a stable social situation, create an alluring hunting experience. I’m in agreement with Winston Churchill, …

Symmetry

“Bowhunting spanish ibex its one of the most fun hunts you can do, if you add a group of friends around it, the result can not be more amazing. I was a great experience to spend a week with the guys from Greenatur and a very special guest, Adam Foss. Memories will last for ever” …

AOUDAD

Spain has a wide variety of opportunities and this time I travelled to the south eastern area in pursue of free range barbary sheep.

Pyrenees

Every spring we head to the northern part of Spain, in the border with France to bow hunt the Pyrenees range in pursue of chamois.
