Pyrenean chamois

Pyrenean chamois stalking

The Pyrenean chamois is a wild endemic species that represents the very image of mountain hunting in the Pyrenees.


The best times for hunting are during the rut, from mid-October to late November.


The hunting areas range from 800 to 2,200  metres above sea level.


At the beginning of the season, the highest areas of high meadows are favored. Then, as winter progresses, Pyrenean chamois populations are forced to come down, and wooded areas are favored.


As for hunting conditions, they are subject to change depending on the environment and the weather. A good hiking outfit consisting of hiking boots, warm, breathable clothing and a backpack is highly recommended.


The hunting day is organized as follows: the hunter is picked up from his accommodation before daybreak and driven to the hunting area in the guide's vehicle.

The hunter and his guide then explore the area on foot.


The hunting areas are more or less easy to access and the level of difficulty will be adapted to the hunter's physical condition.

Hunting is by the day, and lunch is taken from the bag.


We offer accommodation to suit the hunter's schedule.


Dinner times are to be arranged with the accommodation owners.
