    I got a mouflon hunt at SCI auction, with my wife accompanying me. It was great! We hunted at Fernando Saiz' finca. I would hunt in early morning, while she relaxed around the hacienda and read. At 9 we returned from the hunt, ate breakfast and went off to be tourists. Amazing food, interesting sights. Even my wife was captivated by the taxidermy museum -- she has no interest in hunting. We would get back to the finca and on the trail from 6 to 9 pm, then back for supper. I could have hunted the roaring red deer, fallow -- just coming into the rut, Eurasian boars -- a couple times I thought I would have to shoot one. They were not happy to see me. I also had options to go after four species of ibex, but this was not a good time for that. Wonderful time, magnificent beasts, expert guide.

    England year round and Namibia x5.
    If you look on YouTube and search for Stalking Films - Carlos Castillo, you will find some Spanish hunting amongst his offerings.
    There are a few from Southern France too.
    Each is only a few minutes long but well made, good quality and the editing is good to get the action into the four or five minutes of footage.

    I can highly recommend a hunt in Spain. It is the ideal destination to combine with a tourist adventure with a spouse. We hunted Gredos Ibex with Great Spanish Hunts http://www.greatspanishunts.com/en/about-us/ and had a glorious adventure in the Gredos mountains before moving on to Madrid and Toledo. We have travelled extensively in Europe, and I can now say Spain is our favorite destination - (and my spouse and I thought nothing could surpass Rome and Tuscany! Hunting conditions were fabulous, quarters were first rate, and most importantly, the people were wonderful. I also took a fabulous old ibex.

    Well, that just bumped it up on the list! Did you travel with your own rifle?

    Nope. Did a loaner (.300 WM with Leica optics). Just too hard to do the whole armed tourist thing after the hunt. Worked out great. And we are going back next year.

    I just emailed them to start it off. I probably seem like a tire kicker as I am a few years out (I am going to Namibia next year.) But, then both boys will be at University so a perfect trip with my Mrs. Thanks for the tip!

    I hunted Spain last year with my bow. Took a nice mouflon and great red stag. Very physical and rewarding hunt. A Beceite Ibex is booked for later this year. I cant wait!!
