I'm looking for a Ibex hunt that's reasonably priced. Between 5k-7k.
Thanks in advance.

These days you are hard pressed to find anything under 5 digits...especially if you want a real ibex.

The only goat species you are going to get in Texas that aren't arm and leg are Catalina's or Hybrid Ibex...the latter of which in most cases is just a generation short of becoming the former.

I've never really seen a pure Persian Ibex in the US except for the herd in the Florida Mtns. Now that looks like a true hunt. I'd love to get drawn someday.

I've seen pics of White Elks Persians. They are not pure seemingly, but they are better then the ones I see In texas that are a generation short of crossing with a goat of belonging in grandpas barn.

On the other hand, I saw a pic of a great persian taken at W4 and another at Morani. They looked pure, but morani wants 12-20k!
Esshhh!

Oh and Kobus I have been approached by White Elk ranch about purchasing my Ibex even though they are only one generation out of my Grandfathers barn.

Kobas or AxisMaster, Whatever handle you are using these days, you negative comments about people such as Thompson Temple, the White Elk Ranch and hybrids only serve to highlight how immature and ignorant you really are. It seems that you will post on any thread you can ..not to respond to the original poster's question, but to get on your little soapbox and malign the existence of any hybrid and the people who raise them. Maybe some day you will grow up.

Pitchfork,
Here are two pics of Persian Ibex off of the White Elk Ranch...look pretty nice to me. I am sure that Aaron and Don can recommend a place in Texas for you to find what you want.

Is it just me or is Kobus all over the map here? I'm not an ibex guy, but it sounds like he goes from " no decent Persians in Texas, to some really awesome ones...

I think Kobus is Hillary Clinton. Don't let anyone tell you that real pure ibex are created by ranchers in Texas.

there is a huge misnomer about ibex...between ranches selllng domestic goats as "ibex", to people who think they know far more than they do. here are some of my ibex that I'd be curious to get the a certain professionals opinion on.

Aaron, My opinion doesn't really count for a lot, but I'd have no problem shooting the big male in the top photo. I know nothing about ibex first hand...all just from reading and photos...but that male does appear to have the markings that you see in a Persian Ibex....so my opinion is that it's a handsome goat and looks to me like a Persian Ibex. But what the heck do I know.
