Game Conditions Comments:I took my two daughters ages 22 and 20 for a post college graduation trip. Both of my daughters are experienced hunters. I wanted to combine a hunting trip with a nice cultural experience that we had not yet experienced. As we had not been to Spain, and ibex hunting is available in May, we chose to a Beceiti and Ronda ibex hunt. Our friends had used Valeriano and I had met Valeriano at the SCI show the last couple of years. My friends couldn't say enough nice things about him, so we chose to go with him and I am so glad we did. He delivered everything as promised at the exact cost he provided. There were no surprises or hidden costs. We stayed at charming rural hotels and ate authentic rural Spanish cuisine. The accommodations and food were a delight. The hunting areas were beautiful and it was a pleasure just touring the areas. We had good hunts in each area with each of my daughters procuring a beautiful trophy. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. I am glad I could do it with my daughters. The hunting was fun and the country beautiful. I look forward to returning and completing the Spanish grand slam in the near future.
