ROUTE

You will need to arrive at the international airport of Madrid. Many airlines fly to Madrid, including British Airways, Lufthansa, Air France, KLM, Emirates, American Airlines, Delta, etc. After finishing necessary custom formalities you will be transferred to the hunting area by car. The length of stay depends on the number of trophies desired.

HUNTING

The main way of hunting is stalking. Deer hunt: The best time is early in the morning, and late in the afternoon. The transportation around the area is done with the help of 4WD where possible. Ibex and chamois hunting is a classical mountain hunting. Normally you hunt the whole day and have lunch in the fields. Monteria: a very spectacular driven hunt due to the beauty of the countryside, and participation of great numbers of the horses, beaters, hounds and hound keepers. This is the classic method, rich with tradition, that is favored by many Spanish hunters.

SPAIN

Traveling here is easy, accommodation plentiful, the climate is mild and the people relaxed, the beaches long and sandy, the food and drink easy to come by and full of regional variety. Culturally, the country is littered with superb old buildings, from Roman aqueducts and Islamic palaces to Gothic cathedrals. Almost every second village has a medieval castle. Spain has been the home of some of the world's great artists – El Greco, Velázquez, Goya, Dalí, Picasso – and has museums and galleries to match. The country vibrates with music of every kind – from the drama of flamenco to the melancholy lyricism of the Celtic music and gaitas of the northwest.

“Deep in the guts of most men is buried the involuntary response to the hunter’s horn, a prickle of the nape hairs, an acceleration of the pulse, an atavistic memory of his fathers, who killed first with stone, and then with club, and then with spear, and then with bow, and then with gun, and finally with formulae.” Robert Ruark
