I don't know of anyone who has Spanish Ibex. But that doesn't mean there isn't. Good luck.

Hunted them about 10 years ago in Spain. Really cool animal, but never seen any in the private mkt.

All the subspecies? I wonder how they'd do in Texas?

They'd probably do just fine. The weather in the southern half of spain is very similar to Texas from my experience. Gredos habitat is a bit cooler, higher, and wetter than you'll find in Tx, but there's a lot of spain that you could easily mistake for the Tx hill country.

A lot harder to get stock out of zoos these days, somewhat frowned upon unless there are a number of steps in the middle.

What other species do you foresee for your project?

From the research I have done, they are mostly a wild goat. From the pictures I have seen I may have a whole bunch of them. I saw a video made in portugese that featured a wild herd in a national park. My pyxies would fit right in.

All Ibex are of the Capra Genus. (goat)
In Spain there are 4 subscpecies of the Spanish Ibex that are recognized.
1. Tortosa Beceite
2. Gredos
3. Southeastern
4. Ronda

I just hunted Spain and took a very nice Beceite and will go back in a year or two for the Gredos.
They are all very similar cloration with the differences being horn configuration and size.
It would be kind of cool to see some here....but I would rather go after them in their mountains.

Great Ibex,

I used to live in Andalusia between Cadiz and Jerez, we had Ronda ibex in the area I was in.

Hunting them at the time wasn't something I could afford. The going rate in 2000 for a small nosed American was about 10,000 Euros.

I wasn't able to break into the Spanish hunting scene, mostly because Spain's middle class is very small and most hunters hunt rabbits. Mostly with greyhounds and falcons.

I did have one stag/pig hunt near Seville that ended in me missing a wildboar and not seeing a mature stag to shoot.
