    Switzerland Alpine Ibex makes 20!

    He goes by many names .. We English speaking folks know him as the Alpine ibex. In Latin, he’s known as the grandfather of all of the goats; Capra Ibex. In his native ranges he goes by several monikers; le Bouquetin the French speaking regions of the Alps of southeast France and western Switzerland, lo Stambecco in the Italian Alps, der AlpenSteinböck in the German, Austrian and eastern Swiss Alps, and Kozerog in Slovenia where he lives in the Julian Alps, the southern arm of Alps proper. To many hunters, he’s regarded as the King of the Alps; Der König der Alpen. I am in this crowd of hunters. He’s a special animal that most hunters are afforded just one chance at, if ever at all, in their lifetime. Permits are extremely limited and very hard to come by. He’s been immortalized in his native range in statues, sculptures, paintings, and writings. Hunters for millennia have looked up from the valley floors on clear days at the highest snow and glacier capped haunts the Alps have and pondered the chance to have just one opportunity to chase the long horned goats that live in those absolute vertical reaches of the incredible range they’d gaze upwards at. I had my opportunity in western Switzerland this past week. I’m humbled to have had the opportunity to receive this rare permit at a time that coincided with my chance to finish my Capra Super 20 (20 different goat species from around the world) I’m thankful, humbled and grateful. It was a hunt I’ll never forget. The Alps gifted me one of its Kings and he’ll forever hold a spot of the highest regard in my life and in my memories from here on out. Having finished my Capra Super 20, I have so many people to thank. Each of you all know who you are. Know that you’re all incredibly gracious good people and I’m a better man for having had the pleasure of you in my life. Thank you all.

    Hello Tikka We were hunting on Otjiwa. A conservancy in Otjiwarongo in northern Namibia through my company Global Pursuit. I appreciate it very much!

    Yes sir, the pics with the trees is Deadvlei. Its probably one of the most photographed places on earth for dramatic nature pics. It was really incredible to see! The dune behind Deadvlei in the photos is called Big Daddy. Supposedly the tallest dune on earth. Sossusvlei was very close by. Just on the other side of the canyon. It isnt as dramatic as Deadvlei with its standing dead acacia forest, but it has the most beautiful dunes. Also the 2nd tallest dune is there, of course named Big Mamma. These areas are great to see but they are WAYYY out there. It is 5-6 hours of washboarded dirt roads just to get to the entrance of the National Park. Then its another hour drive to these areas plus an hour walk in from the parking. Theyre way back in there! Id recommend Swakopmund for just all out fun. Tons of stuff to do there and dang near just as much sand! I appreciate it, guys. ✊✊

    Yes, PH’s dog. My daughter loved her so she was in pretty much every photo we took. Her name was Wrinkles and she was a tracking whiz. Luckily her services were not needed by us!

    Thanks. The Roan was measured as the 2nd largest ever to come from Namibia. He truly is a monster bull.

    Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. You have to REALLY want to see these to go. 5 hours of dirt roads to get here. Stunning place though!! It is literally the middle of nowhere. Tallest dunes in the world and theyre a beautiful peach orange color.

    Swakopmund. An awesome little German enclave town right on the coast.
  12. Hello CWT Been awhile since the last time I poked my nose in. Probably since my Spain/Russia trip last November. Well, didnt draw anything anywhere... again. But I DID finally return to Africa after a long 8 year hiatus from the dark continent. Ive been mountain hunting as hard as my finances would allow the last 8 years and Africa just took a back seat. I made Namibia the priority this trip as I have never been there before, and because it is the safest country in Africa, I decided to take my 10 year old daughter, my wife and my mother on this trip. Ill spare the written details other than to say it was a fantastic trip. 10 days of hunting with some incredible trophies taken.. a few for me I had been waiting to hunt for many years. We hunted north central Namibia not too far from Etosha Nat Park. I was fortunate enough to have taken a monster sable bull and Roan bull as well as Hartmanns mountain zebra, Damara dikdik, steenbok, and 2 gemsbok oryx bulls. My daughter was Annie Oakley this trip. 6 kills with 6 shots from her 243. Im pretty sure she has the bug as badly as her old man now! She took 4 springbok, an impala, and a blue wildebeest. After the hunt, we spent an incredible week in Swakopmund on the coast as well as a few days in Soussusvlei and Deadvlei in the Namib Desert. National Geographic stuff 💯!! Beautiful place! So here are a handful of pics to enjoy. It was great being back in Africa but now the mountains call again and Oct cant come quickly enough! Good hunting to you all and congratulations to those with a sheep tag in your pocket!

    These two Tur completed my Tur Slam and when I was successful with the Chamois, they called it the Caucasian hat trick! Got it done!
