Default Headed to Spain&France!! Ibex&..

Sitting at a DFW bar w/wifey. Waiting to take off

This hunt has been a few years coming to fruition. So back in Ď19 I was fortunate to win a hunting trip to France w/France Safaris. I pushed it back to Ď20 and also decided to go to Spain again since we enjoyed ourselves so much!! Well pandemic hit and countries closed. Trip got pushed back. But here we go now!!

We’ve been hunting in South America several times and have loved it. (My husband, who is a practical sort, prefers to travel to places where the change in time zones is no more than two hours, three at the most [eye roll from me]). However, since most all of our travel—at home and abroad—must include a hunting component, I’ve been researching the European continent recently. Lots of great diversity of fauna in Scotland but had not heard much about the hunting culture in France. Would love to see you post all about your trip upon your return.

Las Ventas. Tiquetas por sombra. I saw a toreador get his pants hiney ripped off. He finished the fight in a skirt. Madrid is a cool town.

Yessir! Iíve got Gredos Ibex west of Madrid. Cantabrian Chamois in Picos de Europa up north. This particular area is the wildest in the Iberian Peninsula. There are Brown Bear and wolves in these areas!!
Then we fly over to the South of France, where Iíll be chasing Mouflon and hoping for a big Eurasian Boar!! With so more touring after the hunt.

This evening we were able to knock a bucket list item off. We went to see Barcelona FC play at Rayo Vallecano(small club based in Madrid).






Sergino Dest(American plays for Barca)

Well our team lost but it was still a great experience. Those fans are crazy passionate!!
