YUKON

Back in the Yukon! 12 years later we are back in one of the wildest places on earth! We arrived yesterday to Whitehorse after more than 30 hours of travel. Getting stuff ready to fly in the bush for the next couple of weeks. It will be my second attempt to shoot a moose after …

STAGS OVER THE CLOUDS

Mountain stags are special. There is something very special when you hunt mountain stags. Those sunrises over the clouds, hearing a stag on the highest ridges, and interacting with it to get in to range. Hunting them with family and friends makes it more special. The bulls might not be the biggest ones in Spain, …

THE ROAR OF GREDOS

Hunting red stags during the rut in Spain is the most exciting time of the year. It probably has all my favorite ingredients: great friends, rutting red stags, mountain location, camping deep inside and involving horses for packing. I can’t think of a better plan!! We tend to travel far away and we don’t realize …

NORWAY

We travelled to Norway for a week backpacking in search of Caribou. DAY 1 The first step on our trip to Norway was passing the shooting test to get our hunters license. It’s mandatory to go through this test every year and with every weapon you want to hunt with. The test consists in shooting …

SPAIN BOWHUNTING PARADISE

After several European shows seeing the number of offers around the world, it has made me think that we are really lucky to live in what I believe is one of the best countries to bow hunt in the world. A country full of variety, both in the terrain and in the species to hunt, from …

2017 A YEAR TO REMEMBER

Another year comes to an end… so it is time to look back to one of the most amazing years ever! I started the year over a campfire in the northern part of Cameroon with my dad. We hunted hard for a couple of weeks, especially focused on the Giant Lord Derby Eland. After chasing …

Austria

Last month I traveled to Austria to visit the Swarovski Optik factory. It was amazing to see the fabrication process, and you can really understand why they are top in the industry of hunting optics. Impressive facilities and look into every detail. We had some time to discover the hunting also in that part of …

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 …
